Pupils then produce sentences using those words (see Generation Game PowerPoint template to do this with visuals). Hot seating A volunteer comes to the front of the class to answer quick fire questions from the audience. The rest of the class can tick or cross if they agree or disagree, this gives an opportunity for whole class assessment. Corners Place statements in different corners of the room, pupils move to the statement which most applies to their opinion, or is the correct answer to a question the teacher asks. Taboo Key words on cards, pupils have to describe to a partner the key word without mentioning the word itself. Blankety-Blank Teacher reads out a statement with a blank, pupils write a word on show-me boards and bet on how right they are. Blockbusters Key vocabulary blockbusters The percentage game Teacher writes up 4 beginnings and 4 ends to sentences, all of which are interchangeable. A student tries to guess the full sentence the teacher has written down in secret. Teacher tells them if they have 100%, 50% or zro. Another student then guesses, taking into account what the previous student has said. </li> <li> Page 17 </li> <li> Traffic Lights put statements about subject onto cards. Pupils sort cards into three piles; I know (green), Im not sure (amber), I dont know(red). Pupils could circulate to try and glean knowledge from classmates. They can then re- order the pile at the end of the lesson to show progress. Play teacher Information/text given to pupils with deliberate mistakes, pupils have to correct them. Categorisation Statements, key words belonging to different groups on cards, pupils categorise them into groups. Odd-One-Out Pupils seek out differences and similarities between three or four different pictures, words, sentences or short texts. Pupils can then produce their own sets.
