· Listen, point and say. Place flashcards or objects for the key vocabulary around the classroom. Call out a vocabulary word. The children point to the correct flashcard or object. Alternatively, play the chant with the target vocabulary and the children point or touch the correct card when they hear the word. Now point to the flashcards one by one, the children must say the words. Option: describe the location of the card, e.g. It's next to the window. What's this? The children then say the word.
· What's missing? Put a number of flashcards (6-8) on the table (or floor) face-up in order all the players could see them properly. Students look at the cards trying to memorize as many as possible. Ask them to close their eyes and remove one (or more cards). Ask: what's missing? They must name the missing card. The student who does it first, gets a point or has a go to take away another card. Option: to make the game harder, add a new card from a related lexical set each time or remove more than one card. To make the game more effective, and reduce teacher talking time, divide the students into groups and give them cards with vocabulary you want them to learn or revi se.
· Memory game. Print two sets of flashcards. Put all cards face down on the floor (or table), determine the order of the players in the game. Children take turns to open two cards and name them. If they match, the player keeps the cards and has another go, if they don't the cards are turned over again and another child goes. At the end of the game you can ask children to make short sentences with target grammar and vocabulary using the cards they have won.
