WHEN DESIGNING VISUALS YOU
     MUST TAKE INTO ACCOUNT:

-Ensure that all type is visible from the back of
the classroom.

-Use a graphic rather than a text.
EXAMPLES OF CLASSROOM USE
USING FLASHCARDS
•Who Am I ? Game...
-Have your selected flashcards on display.
-Children take turns giving ‘who am I’ clues for a chosen word (for
example, I am yellow, I have 5 letters, I end in ‘y’).
-Other children guess the word.

•Chinese Whispers….
-Children are sitting in a circle.
-First child picks up a flashcard and whispers the word to the child next
to them.
-The word get ‘whispered’ around to the last child who says to word
out loud.
-Flashcard gets held up to check of correct.
• Tic Tac Toe Here I Go...
-Have your chosen word cards displayed.
-Children or Teacher uses a pointer to sing as they point to the words
     in random fashion…
‘Tic Tac Toe Here I go, Where I Land I Do Not Know’
-Stop on a card - children say the word.
-It is fun to go really fast with this and children love being the
     ‘teacher’.
-This has always been a simple favourite wherever I have used it.

• Stepping Stones….
-Place chosen word cards on the floor in random fashion.
-Children take turns stepping on the stones (word cards), saying the
   words as they step on each one.
-Children be careful not to fall off into the river full of crocodiles.
• Reveal the word/picture slowly. (Guessing)
• Show it backwards or upside down
• Write a question on one side and the answer
  on the other (they can work by themselves)
• Missing vowels/consonants
• Put them in order: a story/tale (with pictures,
  words or both)
• Play memory games
USING POSTERS
•Cover the WB, the wall… with a big white
paper. Project an image on it and trace it. Then
you or the pupils can colour it and make a puzzle
or add more things (as in a collage), so that the
pupils will be making their own posters.
Wordle...
-Children place the chosen word card words into
www.wordle.net to make a word cloud.
-Print out the word cloud and find the words
within it.
-Children make their own ‘word clouds’ using
the word card words, using wordle as an
example.

the other now.
