These games help children have fun and make them listen.
Right or Wrong Example of a simple response activity. Explain something to the children. It might be right or wrong.
Simon says We can play it inside or outside. Have a space where all the children can stand up. With big classes, we can choose actions that pupils can do sitting down.
Teaching tips about listening and responding Make the instructions more complicated by asking the children to do two things at a time.
2. Listen and make Listening and making involves: It is an ideal way for children to absorb more English. Helps interaction in English between teacher and pupils. Children have to make decisions. How to prepare for Listen and make activities We can do many things before beginning the lesson: Collect the things we need to show the children what to do. Practise explaining in English what they have to make and how they have to make it.
How to set up Listen and make activities Explain the topic to the class in English and show them what they are
going to do or make. While they are colouring and making their things, go round and
comment in English on what they are doing.
