Recycling our English

Board games may be old school but they are great for kids for different reasons. They’re still a super-fun way to teach kids about following rules, taking turns, counting spaces, and accepting rewards and consequences.

In addition, board games offer interactive English language practice in a learner-centered, low-stress environment.

I have designed two easy board games for Level 5 and Level 6 that require the students to produce certain types of expressions, so they practice a variety of vocabulary, grammatical patterns, and functional meanings.

Here you have a ppt about the rules of these board games.

 

 
I am sure students will enjoy reviewing and recycling their knowledge of English with these board games.
