  Title: Point to It Type: Listen, Look and Do Time: a few minutes at most Method: Students merely point to the item that the teacher says. Allow students to look at their friends’ responses for this. This can be used for the presentation stage of the lesson, but needs to be kept brief. It can also be used to review items prior to a speaking activity in games such as Snakes and Ladders and Follow the Wire. Rationale: Perhaps it is easier to learn from fellow students rather than from the teacher.   Title: Put the Cards in Order Type: Listen, Look and Do. Time: a few minutes at most Method: Students have a selection of cards, say ten. The teacher reads some (say five) and the students rush to put them in order. Best to keep this brief.   Title: Bring me Type: Listen, Look and Do Time: 10 to 15 minutes depending on number of cards Method: Each team has a set of cards, eg 16 out of 24 total (or 12 out of 16 total for a shorter game). The teacher calls out one item and scores it off the list. Students bring the card to the teacher. If it is correct, they get two points, but if it is incorrect, they lose one point. The teacher keeps the card. When all items have been called out, remaining cards are subtracted from each team’s score. Rationale: For reading, the deducted point encourages students to attempt to read the card rather than merely sight guess.
