Fun, games and weird activities

  1. 1. FUN, GAMES AND WEIRD ACTIVITIES IN THE CLASSROOM Josette Molle 35th TESOL France Annual Colloquium JoM-Fun,GamesandWeirdActivities
  2. 2. JUST A MINUTE Rules of the TV show https://youtu.be/-YF9o692Cgc Speak on a subject for 60 seconds without * hesitation * repetition * deviation At anytime one participant can challenge the speaker. If the challenge is correct, they gain a point, if not, the speaker gains a point and continues with the subject. They can repeat the subject on the card. The person speaking as the buzzer / alarm goes off is the winner. In class, depending on the students’ level, you would probably use only the ‘ hesitation ’ and deviation rules.

  3. 3. BLOCKBUSTERS Rules of the TV show https://youtu.be/kvT2qMdPMX4 A solo player competes against a family pair. Each team competes to find words beginning with a given letter according to the definitions the host gives. Each team must link the 2 sides of a square (left – right or top – bottom) to win the round. In class, you can put students in teams, and adapt the definitions and proposed letters to their levels.

  4. 4. CALL MY BLUFF Rules of the game: Choose weird words with their definition. Put the students into teams and give each team a word (and its definition!). They have to come up with 2 other definitions. The second team decides which definition is the correct one. (they should use modal verbs of deduction: it can’t be… it could be… it must be… ) JoM-Fun,GamesandWeirdActivities
