activity ideas

If your students enjoy our picture test, you could expand it (or give your students extra practice) by playing related classroom word games. Here are some ideas to inspire you. These activities can be used in any topic!

Teaching English in a fun way

Each player choose six words, then draws pictures of them on a piece of paper. Players take turns calling out a word. When a word is called out, everyone who has that word crosses it out. The first player to cross out all his/her words is the winner.

Learning English in a fun way

Describe the picture of the word and ask your students to draw it. This can also be organised as a team game, with a kid from each team coming up to the board to draw.

Classroom games ideas

Start drawing an object on the board, and after each line ask: What's this? Kids guess what it is. The first person to guess correctly has to spell the word correctly to gain the point, otherwise the point goes to the opposing team.
