This bundle includes two fun activities to practice speaking and English conversation with your students
1. ESL Activities: Picture Prompts for Speaking Practice
This resource includes 20 engaging picture prompts (2 sizes) plus 20 conversation task cards. The pictures and questions are appropriate for all ages. There are 2 levels of questions so you can use these task cards with various levels and throughout the year.
• Conversation Practice: Students will work in pairs. One student will look at the picture as the other student asks the questions provided on the task card. I recommend having all students begin with Level 1 questions. This activity is a great way to start a class.
Have the pictures and task cards on the desks as the students walk in the door.
• These picture prompts can also be used in a number of other ways. Students can practice sequencing words, cause and effect, journal writing, generating questions and assessment of oral language.
There are two levels of questions:
Level 1 questions include present tense, present progressive, simple past, yes/no questions, giving descriptions and "wh-" question words.
Level 2 questions include future tense, giving explanations, providing opinions, "why" questions, compare/contrast, "if", and "should".
