  33. 33. Word in a bag – explain it to the group. What level?? Dice games: 1 dice represents pronouns, second dice represents verbs or tenses. Write an unknown word on the board: pupils ask questions to find out what it means. Guessing game: In pairs, one pupil has a card with a word on a topic, the partner has to ask questions about it to work out what it is e.g. an item of lost property, a job, a famous person etc. TV programme: turn off the sound and pupils provide the dialogue or use future tense by asking what will happen next. Balloon debate: Who gets thrown out first? Cluedo: Who did it? – in groups (with a time limit) pupils come up with either: Powerpoint Templates Page 33 a) the most excuses b) the most creative excuse / alibi
  34. 34. Throw the ball: Differentiated questions and responses. Build it up: Go round the class or back and forth (in pairs): pupils add a detail to a sentence to make it longer e.g. je joue, je joue au tennis, je joue au tennis avec John etc. Link it: Link key phrases and grammar points to different topics when teaching it e.g. je n’ai pas de frères and ask pupils to come up with other nouns to replace frères. Opinions: Put key higher level phrases in an envelope and pupils in groups. One person rolls the dice e.g. 5 and takes out 5 phrases from the envelope e.g. parce que / weil, je pense que / ich denke, dass, etc. They have to answer a question using all 5 phrases. This can be made more competitive e.g. rolling a 6 = nominate someone else to do your turn. Sounds: in pairs or alone, pupils find as many words as they can with particular sounds. (they could be searching for rhyming words Powerpoint Templates Page 34 too)
