Ideas for English Lessons



Subject: Spelling


Skills: Speaking, Listening.

Level: A2

Recommended Age: 10+

Number of Participants: 5-9 players.

Time: 10-15 minutes.

Place: Classroom.

Equipment: A set of alphabet flashcards; A game table, which can be replaced with two desks, put together.

Materials: Not required.

Preliminary Preparation (5-10 minutes). First think of such a word, where the number of letters coincides with the number of players and none of them is repeated. For a class of 7 students, let us consider the word 'holiday'. Next select the flashcards with the corresponding letters.

Immediate Preparation (5-10 minutes). First put the class around the game table. Next warn the players in advance not to show their cards to the rivals. After that, distribute the flashcards, turned face down, around the class. Thereby, after opening their card, each player knows only one letter, their total number in the word and the fact, that none of them is repeated.

How to Play. The game may start like this:

Player А (who has got the letter I): Is it 'kitchen'?

You: No, it isn't.

Player B (who has got the letter H): Is it 'brother'?

You: No, it isn't.

Player C (who has got the letter A): Is it 'surname'?

You: No, it isn't.

and so on.

The winner is the player to guess the word.
