My Favourite Fun, Student-Generated Speaking Activity Use this easy method to get the conversation rolling! Teachers want their students to talk as much as possible, since conversation practice helps students improve their pronunciation and listening skills, and allows them to put the grammar and vocabulary they’ve learned to use. Speaking is a fundamental part of communication in another language. But sometimes, getting students to speak is a real challenge! Textbooks, filled with written work and drill-type activities, aren’t always helpful. Jolly Phonics - a child-centred approach to teaching literacy Jolly Learning What is Jolly Phonics?

Especially if (as in my class) the winning team gets a stamp, which translates into 1% of their final grade. Draw a grid on the board, marking one row with numbers, one with letters. I usually do 5x5 or 6x6 for a 20-30 minute game.

Another 10 Fun Classroom Activities to Help Students Practice Speaking English Face Game If your students do not know already then first teach them the following parts of the face: forehead, chin, ear, eye, nose, mouth. Now, ask the students to make fists with both hands and touch their ears. On the first round, you play the role of the leader and say: ear, ear, ear – forehead (or a different part of the face from the list above). The third time that you say ear, say it more slowly, so that other players know that you are about to switch. When the new part is called out (in this example, forehead), everyone must quickly move both of their fists from ear to forehead at the same time.

My Daughter, The Fox Jackie Kay's story My Daughter, The Fox gives the reader an unusual view of the mother/child relationship. As the title suggests, the narrator's daughter isn't human, but the feelings generated between mother and daughter are universal and so the scene is set for the paradox to be played out. Please Note:The teacher should take into consideration the age and cultural background of the pupils because several taboo words are used by the author. If those words are not acceptable in a particular classroom they can be replaced by milder equivalents (euphemisms) or obliterated with asterisks.

Idioms Idioms and idiomatic expressions in English An idiom is a group of words in current usage having a meaning that is not deducible from those of the individual words. For example, "to rain cats and dogs" - which means "to rain very heavily" - is an idiom; and "over the moon" - which means "extremely happy" - is another idiom. In both cases, you would have a hard time understanding the real meaning if you did not already know these idioms!
