BRIEF OUTLINE: Students practice saying numbers 1-13.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • A set of playing cards for each group
  •  

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After dividing the students into groups of about four, give each group a set of playing cards and have them divide the cards equally (without looking at them).
  2. On the board, write A=1, J=11, Q=12, K=13.
  3. Quickly review numbers 1-13 with students.
  4. Students take turns flipping over their top card, and saying the number displayed.
  5. Keep doing this, going around the circle in turn.
  6. If the same card comes up again, the first student to slap the card pile and yell "numbers" wins those cards.
  7. The winner is the student who gains all the cards, or has the most cards when game time is over.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • To make it harder, students can also snap on number sequences. For example, if a six is laid down, and then a seven or a five is put down, they can snap.
  • You can use this activity for months of the year by nominating a number for each month (A= January, 5=May)
  • Make your own set of playing cards and use them for vocabulary practice.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Do a demonstration with the JTE/ALT so the students understand.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Some groups will forget or not not bother to say the English, and instead just wait for the slap.
