CLASSROOM Interactive Communication Cards (Rock Paper Scissors)
The greatest game ever to get your students communicating in natural, fun English conversation!
Pre-teach the conversation structures and the vocabulary.
Each student gets one card. In pairs they ask each other the open-ended question - "What do you have?", and the other student replies with the prompted answer on his card e.g. "I have a...(pencil)".
Once both have asked and answered each other, they play ´Rock-Paper-Scissors, 1-2-3´ and the winner gets her opponents card. If a student doesn´t have any cards, s/he asks the teacher "Can I have a card please?”
After each rock-paper-scissors round, all the students change partners and do it again.
The game ends when the teacher has no more cards or you run out of time – because your kids will love this game and beg to play it every day.
*I often add the ‘English-only’ rule that if any student speaks in their native language, they lose a card.
*I prefer not to have the students count the cards to find the winner, as we play for fun, not to win.
*Fully editable, easy to cut and totally addictive. Your students will love it.
