I use this to practise the following high numbers and/or dates as I find students often struggle with numbers and benefit from regular practice:
2000 2002 2010 2014 2012 1900 1970 1980 1990 1995 1998 1999 15/12 14/11 13/08
05/12 04/11 03/08
This can be used at the beginning of term and throughout the school year.
Firstly I ask the student to team up and figure out how to say the numbers/dates. Then I play lotto/ bingo or Beat The Teacher: the teacher points to a number/date and says a number/date. If it is correct the students all repeat it. If it is wrong the students must stay absolutely silent. If they do, they win 1 point. If not, the teacher gets 1 point. Most points wins! This is lots of fun!
