Ever-popular ESL games for kids
1. Sing a Song.
It’s just a fact: kids love music.
There is one song included in the teaching material for demo class, but you can also find some yourself on Youtube. Prepare some flash cards and raise the cards when the word is mentioned in the song. A Hello Song can be a good introduction.
2. Guessing Games
Guessing games are always fun and could be a great warm-up activity for online ESL classes and kids. And this method could apply to so many topics including animals, fruits and vegetables.
Also, the What Am I game can be integrated into a song, to make it more fun! Check this out 🙂
3. What Does the Teacher Have Game
Technically, this can be categorised into the guessing game. But in this game, instead of drawing, the teacher uses hints (including body language)to help the student guess the object. Topics such as colours, food & drink can be covered.
