We’ve always done show-and-tells in the classroom, so the first week of “Covid” online classes mi-March, I asked the kids to show everyone one of their favorite toys and later turned this experience into interactive content. Two girls had animal cards with them, so lots of new words came out!
Review with games
This memory game is an enjoyable way to review vocabulary. During an online group lesson, I share my screen and start turning the cards, one by one. When a pair comes up, the children tell me to go up or down, left or right to find the matching card. It’s good speaking practice as well.
With the five-year-olds who just started English this year, it’s also easy to highlight 3 or 4 cards and ask them which card (the first, second, third or fourth) is the right match.
