Word Dominoes – tekhnologic The other week I wanted an activity that would allow students to have a controlled practice that could be done in small groups, but had a repetitive quality to really practice the target language. I decided on dominoes. Dominoes is another activity that is an old favorite in the ESL classroom.

How to Play Crumple & Shoot I learned how to play Crumple and Shoot from Doris Gannon, a reading teacher I worked with in my first job, and since then I’ve passed it on to more people than I can remember.

Earlier this week, he played a new one (or, at least, it was new to me). He calls it “Word Blurt” and you can see a video of him playing it below.

His version has some cards on a table between two people.
