BRIEF OUTLINE: Students race in teams to identify as many school objects as possible

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • School Objects Flashcards
  • School Objects Realia x2 (stapler, ruler, pen, pencil, glue, eraser, marker, etc.)
  • Hand tally counter x 2 (one for you, one for JTE; should be available in office)
  • Timer or stopwatch

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Introduce/Review School Objects vocabulary
    (I find having the students show you their pencils, rulers, scissors, etc. with each vocab word keeps them involved and is a great comprehension check.)
  2. Review the vocab a final time using the realia for the game, instead of the flash cards.
  3. Divide the students into 4-6 teams, depending on class size and desk arrangement.
  4. Arrange the realia in two identical piles on a desk in the middle of the room.
  5. Model the game with your JTE:
    • ALT closes eyes.
    • JTE hands ALT an object and says "What's this?". ALT has to identify the object just by touching it
    • (really ham this part up with wrong guesses and such. I got some great responses when I "tasted" glue and "chewed" on an eraser.)

6.  Do a practice round with the first two teams:

    • Arrange teams on either side of the table
    • ALT hands object and says "what`s this?" to the first student of team 1, while JTE does so for team 2.
    • If the student guesses correctly, they open their eyes, choose an object and say "What`s this?" to the next student in line. After asking "What's this?", the student goes to the end of the line. Rinse and repeat.

7. Once the students understand, set the timer for 2 minutes and play for realsies. We did it tournament style, so once every team went once, teams with similar scores squared off. Then we played a final round between the two highest scoring teams to determine a winner for the game. 

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This game could be used with any vocab in which realia are easily available or practically obtainable (plastic fruit/food/animals/vehicles, etc.)
  • Make sure students say "What's this?" before running to the back of the line.(Many students just dropped an object in their friend`s hands, or forgot to do both altogether)
  • Don't be afraid to help students if they are having difficulty remembering or pronouncing a given vocabulary word. (just don't let them progress until they do it correctly!)
  • Definitely use a tally counter or some other quick counting method for keeping score for each team. If you still don`t know what the heck a tally counter is (I did't know what they were called either), just type in "tally counter" to google images and prepare to face palm.
  • For safety reasons, I do not use scissors for this game.
