Teaching Games For Kids
A few years back I did some voluntary English teaching in Saigon, Vietnam. I like teaching but I didn't realise how hard it is to teach kids between the ages of 5 and 12. By trial and error I eventually found these games which they all liked.Teaching Games For Kids
This is a simple fun game which creates anticipation for kids and gives them a little reward at the end because they get to call up the next student.
This is a simple game and creates a bit of fun competition and sometimes a little chaos.
One of my students had serious jealousy issues playing this game, but that was fixed by just pretending she won the game before she started screaming.
This is the same as "What is your name?" except you get the student to write numbers or letters on the blackboard instead of asking them questions. I did this after playing hot potato because everyone got so excited by throwing a ball around the classroom and this game cooled things down a bit.
If you've got any good games for kids, add them in the comments below.
