Because love should be the strength that moves us when teaching our students. And because sharing keeps us moving to reach them... Here you can find ressources I make for teaching English, mainly to children.

I use these cards to play a game after telling the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?. I give a card to each student and I explain the game. During the game, the teacher says: "I see a brown bear." (a yellow duck, a green frog, etc.) and the students having that card must stand up and act like that animal, making its voice.

 

The game is very funny and students really love it! They learn to recognise the animals and the colours. You can be tricky and try to say a colour with an animal that isn't on any card (e.g. "yellow chicken") or say an animal with a different colour (e.g.: "purple horse"). This way you can see how much they are paying attention or how much they know about their card.

 

You can also say a colour and an animal which don't belong together in these cards, such as "brown horse" (because the horse is blue) and all the students having that colour and that animal must stand up and act like the animals. In the example given, all the students having the brown bear and the blue horse must stand up! Other idea is that, since that animal doesn't appear in the story, the students must be quiet.

 

I included a card for "children", but you can leave it out, because the students are already children (they don't have to have a card to pretend to be children). If you say "I see children." all the students must stand up and move around, acting like children. This can be a bit noisy, depending on your class!  Keep that in mind.

 

After you say all the animals, you can say to your students to exchange their cards with a classmate and start over, so that each student plays different animals.

 

These are just some ideas I've had to play with these cards. If you have any other ideas, please leave a comment! Thanks!

No meu blog há uma jóia para colocar neste blog.

Boa noite,

Descobri este blog por acaso e achei fantástico.

Quanto ao jogo de cartas, tenho feito uma espécie de jogo do "peixinho" que pode ser adaptado para vários temas e usado apenas com vocabulário ou com estruturas (já consolidei "have you got a...?" com animais e brinquedos, "Can I have some...?" com alimentos, etc).
Dá algum trabalho a fazer vários baralhos e claro que gera algum barulho na aula porque os alunos têm que jogar em grupos e jogar às cartas, já se sabe... mas vale a pena.

Talvez já tenha tido a mesma ideia mas não quis deixar de partilhar, just in case...

Continue o excelente trabalho e obrigada por partilhar estas preciosidades que dão tanto trabalho a preparar!

Olá Susana!

Antes de mais, muito obrigada pela mensagem e pela ideia, que é fantástica! Conhecia o jogo do peixinho, mas nem me tinha passado pela cabeça poder usá-lo com estas cartas!! ;) É realmente uma excelente ideia, sem dúvida!

Muito obrigada mais uma vez e espero que os materiais que por aqui vou colocando sejam sempre (pelo menos alguns) úteis!

Beijinho!
