100+ Fun Charades  with Illustrations

100+ Fun Charades with Illustrations

Charades is a classic team or group game, easily suited for lots of different occasions and age levels and is absolutely enjoyed by many students! The object of the game is simple: players take turns acting out words, with no talking or sound effects. Other players try to guess the word, and the team or player who guesses the most wins. However, standard charades can be difficult for students. Due to time and team pressure, students sometimes are at a loss for ideas on how to act out the words. To counter this problem, I developed this product with: over 100 charades cards with phrases and sentences instead of words fun illustrations to go with each situation to help players associate words with something familiar Some students with lower (English) proficiency may benefit from this adaptation to the game so that they can join their classmates in the fun!

This ‘Pop Art Box About Me’ art and getting to know you resource, is a fun, first week back to school ice breaker for both girls and boys. It is a really creative way for teachers and students to learn more about each other. Invite students to create a unique ‘All About Me Box’, following the template prompts using Pop Art style doodles and words. Box prompts include: Age, name, grade, self portrait, favorite colors, favorite fruit, my top goal, I love… Students can then fill their boxes with a selection of question cards and work in pairs or small groups to explore their learning goals, aspirations, likes and dislikes. 36 question cards are included, along with blanks for students to have some fun and invent their own questions and games, for example, ‘Would you rather…’ Another task is to make a ‘card to myself’ with a message or goal, or a kind note for a friend. For example, students can give these to their teacher to open at the end of the year. The coloured, finished example included features a girl’s face. However the actual face template has a ‘generic bald head’ so both boys and girls can create a self portrait from this outline.

This workbook ensures that the student will develop an effective understanding of English. The tremendous advantage of this resource is that the student will immediately become fully included in the learning process. At the end of each unit, the student can record the progress they have made by completing the user friendly self-assessment sheet.

MEET ‘N’ GREET MINGLE BINGO: Ice Breaker for the New Year/ Genetics Unit

MEET ‘N’ GREET MINGLE BINGO: Ice Breaker for the New Year/ Genetics Unit

This ‘Mingle Bingo’ is a great ice- breaker for the start of the year. There are 25 spots on the card, each describing a physical attribute (such as green eyes), a capability (such as being able to lick your elbow!) or something specific about family and home (such as having a dog, or having two sisters). Students embark on a scavenger hunt to find someone in the class who fits that description . There are two slightly different Bingo cards (although they do have some of the same points on them) which could be used together with everyone randomly handed one or the other, or choose which you prefer according to what you know about characteristics within your class. The idea is that everyone mingles and asks each other specific questions. When students find someone who “ticks” one of the boxes on their sheet, that person writes their name down in the space provided. Each person can only be used once, so students have to use a little bit of tactical thinking about whose name to place where! For smaller classes adjust the game by giving students a certain number of boxes to fill in, or ask them to complete a row or two. The activity would also be great for use in a module on Geneticsas many of the Bingo boxes ask about characteristics which are dominant and recessive genes. The cards could also be used in an English as Second Language class in an activity about describing people.
