K3/P1: Game of the Week
Game of the Week Example
This is a simple but loved game! For this game, students must turn over the descriptive cards (appearing face down in the picture), and match the description to the image.
K3/P1: Steal the Letter
Steal the Letter Game Example
The aim of this game is help students spell those really tricky words. To find those tricky words the tutor and student need to work together to create a list of newly discovered words, or difficult words the student is already aware of. A great way to discover new words to spell is to read books! When we have spelt several words, the student will close his/her eyes and the tutor will “steal” one letter from each word. The student must find the stolen letters in order to complete the task!
K2/K3: Sentence Building
Sentence Building Example
This task is great for k2/k3 ESL students. In preparation, the tutor will place the headings in front of the student and explain the purpose of the different columns. This is a good time for the tutor to explain the order in which we create sentences. The tutor will then place the who, what, where, and full-stop cards under the corresponding heading. The student will start with the first column and work his/her way through each section to create the correct sentences.
