These are short language games, with little or no preparation. To be used as a starter or as a reward at the end of a lesson.
General precaution: As most of the games are known with many variants, it’s always a good idea to check the rules before they get started.
A few tips to make the activities entertaining:
- Rewards of some sort. Glory is better than candies, and much cheaper.
- Only a few minutes in a row. If the result is not perfect, it’s better to play the game again a few days later than to prolong it until the students are bored. By the way, it’s also much more effective for memorization to space the repetitions a little bit than to try to memorize everything at once.
