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've made a set of cards with pets useful to play the game "Go Fish". Each student receives 4 cards at the beginning of the game. The aim is either to get a set of 4 cards with the same pet or a set of 4 cards with the same colour.

 

To play, the 1st student should ask another colleague for a card (eg. "A dog" -  if he is trying to make the set with the 4 dogs - or "A blue (cat)" - if he is trying to make the set of 4 blue pets). If the other student doesn't have that card, the 1st student has "to fish" one card from the ones previously spread on the table (face down). Depending on the students' level and/or what you are teaching, you can ask them to ask for the card with a complete sentence (e.g. "Do you have a blue cat?" or "I would like a blue cat.", etc.).

 

If he "fishes" the card he asked for, he continues playing, asking another card to anyone. If he doesn't "fish" the card, it's next student's turn to play. The first one to get a complete set of 4 cards wins.

 

You can also play a kind of "Uno" with these cards. Here you can tell the students to say what's on the card they lay on the table to play (e.g."Blue cat" or if the students are older, you can make them to build a sentence, like, for example,  "It's a blue cat").
