A large kit of bright and colorful body parts for teaching and drilling certain grammar patterns and vocabulary topics with the most charming monsters ever. And they will become an integral part of preparations for Halloween parties and the parties themselves as well. You can make any monsters, describe them and play in different languages.
The kit contains: bodies, eyes, mouths, noses, legs, arms and various hair styles.
This set can be used to study and consolidate the following topics:
- body parts + colors + numbers 1-10;
- appearance + corresponding adjectives for description;
- grammar structures “has got, have got, it is, they are”.
How to use:
- For the first time, just put all the “parts” on the table or floor and let the kids enjoy creating monsters. This will bring them great pleasure and they will enthusiastically describe their results in the end using key structures: "My monster has got… They are…”
- You can record a short audio description of the monster on the phone and use for listening in EFL classes or with young learners. Children listen and collect the necessary elements, considering the size, color and quantity and then make up and describe monsters. E.g.: "The monster has got two long yellow arms".
- Game “Wanted” (to develop reading skills). Make cards with the descriptions of the monsters. Children (one by one or in pairs) choose the cards randomly, read the descriptions and build or draw the monsters and then talk about the appearance of their creatures looking at the model without using the card.
- Game “Guess Who”. Prepare and number several monsters beforehand. Give children the example describing one of them (or more if necessary). The kids have to guess which one you are talking about, eliminating those that don't fit. Then they continue the activity in pairs or mini-groups according to the model given.
- Divide the children into pairs (or mini-groups). One comes up with a description, the other makes up the appropriate monster. Then children change roles.
- Dice game. Give each child a body. Lay out the body parts in piles separately. Children take turns throwing the dice and taking the depicted parts of the body from the piles. You can limit the numbers of moves by 5-7 times or play until the monster has enough free space to add more body parts. After that the children describe the results.
