This is Lori from Fun To Teach!
Recently I was asked for a list of my favorite structured language practice activities. There are so many that it was hard to choose just a few. I began to compile a list of these tried and true old favorites and I thought I would share them here with you. Here are a couple of fun activities to promote language practices. I would love to hear what some of your favorites are!
- Each student has a card with either an A or B written on it.
- Signal so that students with the As find a B, and Bs find an A.
- As prompt their partner with the language prompt or questions
- Bs respond with the language reply.
- Students switch cards with the same partner find a new partner.
Use this activity after teaching a grammatical form.
- Students write a response to a language prompt or question.
- Students find a partner and take turns reading their written reply.
- After reading, students switch papers and find a new partner. (Remember perfect practice, not a race.
- Language practice continues until teacher calls stop!
