ESL / EFL Board Game for Teenagers - 0, 1st and 2nd Conditionals

(0)
Fun practice for your ESL/EFL students with an often dreaded grammar point - conditionals! A lot of the vocab utilises topics related to beauty and appearance, amongst other topics. The two board pages are meant to be attached side-by-side. Ideally, print them, then place on a photocopier together and make yourself some A3 sized copies. The sheet of cards are to be printed double-sided and placed upside down near the board. Included are pdf files plus editable docx files, so that you can change some of the discussion topics to suite your group. Game Play: As with a typical board game, students take turns rolling a die and moving around the board. They must talk about the different topics on the board as they land on the spaces. Depending on your class, you may add a more competitive element here - make them time each other to talk for 30 seconds or 1 minute, if they succeed then they get to stay on the square, if they fail then they have to move back 1 space. On 'NEGOTIATE' squares, the student takes one of the cards and must follow the instructions. Encourage use of conditionals at this point (if you do my homework, I'll buy you an ice cream). The first person to reach the end wins.
A2 ESL / EFL Kids - 2 Uno Type Card Games with Verbs & Characters from Alice in Wonderland

A2 ESL / EFL Kids - 2 Uno Type Card Games with Verbs & Characters from Alice in Wonderland

(0)
2 separate card games, both follow the rules just like the game 'Uno'. Suitable for young learners of English from about age 5 to 12. Game play for both is suitable for 2-8 players. I have used them successfully with both individual pupils where game play was only myself and my pupil, up to groups of 8 in a classroom. Deck 1: Print 2 or 3 copies (depending on size of the group) double sided per group, cut out cards and shuffle. Deal 5-7 cards, depending on size of the group and age* Pupils must put down a card with either the same character or same pronoun. Only one card can be put down at a time (I know, this varies from the proper Uno, but makes it work better). When they put down a card, they should say the full sentence to get some speaking practice. If a player does not have a card, he/she must pick up one card. If that card can be played, then he/she can put it down. If not, he/she misses a turn and it goes to the next player. As a variation with older children, it also works to have to pick up until you can play. It gets a bit crazy sometimes with one person having 10+ cards in their hand, thus not suitable for the little ones. Chesire Cat - wild card. Can be played on any card and any card can be played on it. Draw 2 - can only be played on the correct character or another Draw 2 card. It makes the next player take 2 cards. That player then takes his/her turn - if he/she puts down another Draw 2 card, the next player takes 4 and so on. Winner - first person to get rid of his/her cards. Deck 2: This is a much bigger set than Deck 1, so only one copy per group is necessary. Print pages 1-7 single sided, then reload and print page 8 seven times on the reverse side, or use card stock so pupils can't see through the cards. Game play proceeds as with Deck 1, except pupils put down cards with the same pronoun or same verb. Balloon cards are wild. *Dealing: younger children up to about 7 tend to do best with a maximum of 5 cards due to their small hands. Also, if you have a large group it's best to only start with 5 cards so that there will be enough for a discard pile. **These cards are meant to accompany Alice in Wonderland (A2 reader). They use words and grammar found throughout this story. Look at my other resources for more games and activities part of this unit.
Beginner/Elementary ESL Present Simple Speaking Chart

Beginner/Elementary ESL Present Simple Speaking Chart

(0)
Help your low level ESL learners talk about their daily routine using a simple and clear speaking chart. By having learners tell each other about their own daily routine and that of others using this chart, they practice proper verb conjugation, learn useful verbs and phrases, and learn prepositions (at the weekend, on Monday, etc.). Use of this sort of speaking chart helps prevent small mistakes from becoming habit early one - repetition of the basics using the correct form can stop bad habits forming. This can be used either in a group with students in pairs or small groups, or in a one-to-one lesson between the student and teacher.

Euro-Trip Geography Game + Worksheets + Extra Card Game

(0)
This is a comprehensive set of activities to work on geography about 14 European countries. It is possible to change the selection of countries by adding extra passports, flags and numbers on the board. You can view most of the game components in this picture: https://goo.gl/JkQUgf The main game is about taking a trip around Europe. Players each select a passport which contains the identity of a child who they will become during the game. The passport also contains a list of countries to which they must travel in order to win the game. To be fair, each passport will require the same total amount in order to win. To travel, players must earn money by answering trivia questions about these 14 countries, which can then be spent on flights to different countries on their list. Trivia questions include physical geography (location and shape), flags and capital cities. All game components are provided in PDF and DOCX format for ease of printing and also to allow you to customise the game to include different countries and/or different trivia questions. This game is suitable for lower primary pupils or older ESL or SEN children. Full rules are provided in PDF form in the download. The secondary game provided is basically UNO, except uses flags. It is intended to help children practice correct forms of 'be' in the present simple and recognise some flags. Game play is identical to UNO. Also provided are corresponding cut outs and worksheets about these countries. Cut outs can be used to practice capital cities, then further practiced on the worksheets. Another worksheet has pupils colour the flags according to a description.
