Favorite Icebreaker or ESL game. Kahoot (at kahoot.com for teachers and kahoot.it for students to play)
Favorite reason for reporting a worksheet. Not 100% in English
Favorite way to reward the class for good behavior. Early break (helps that I teach adults!)

Pet peeve errors that students make. Adding a pronoun subject when there´s already a noun subject, e.g., "My teacher she is writing on the board."
Your students´ favorite excuse for why they have not done their homework. "You didn´t give us any." (This is usually true. I teach adults, and the classes are now shortened to 4.5 hours every day.)
Favorite site for finding pictures for worksheets or teaching. Google Images (sorry not sorry for breaking the "no using Google" rule)
Second favorite website for finding answers to ESL questions (Of course, ESLprintables is our favorite, so please just list your second favorite) https://www.pinterest.com/ . (I have more than 3,300 pins just for ESL, and almost 12,000 total.) I can´t argue with rong-chang.com or eslfast.com, though. I love eslfast for dictation.
 
I think this thread is less of a game and more of a sharing resources activity. Works for me!
