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.

This schoolyear I taught body parts to a class using "The Bath Song", from Super Simple Songs. They listened to the song, sang and acted it out in the classroom. It was funny!

Then I wondered how I could practice the body parts and the language in the song. That's how this game was born!

 

There are 2 A4 pages, which glued under each other, make a relatively large board game (near A3 size). I put it on the blackboard and made teams with 4 or 5 students (it depends on the size of your class, of course). Then a member of each team comes to the front, throws a big dice I have brought to the classroom, says the number shown (in English, of course!) and I move the counter on the board. Then the student must say "I can wash my..." + the body part he/she landed on. If the answer is correct, the team can move one space forward, if not, they must return one space.

 

Of course you can change the rules as you want. You can have a rule where the student can ask the team for help, for example, but the final sentence must be his/hers, even if it's just the repetition of someone else's sentence. That way every student says a sentence.

 

For younger students, you can also help or ask only the body part.
