Use the whiteboard/blackboard. Italy still works with traditional blackboards in most cases, though some schools have whiteboards. Draw a scene on the board and have students write sentences in their notebooks to describe it, or have them comment on it as speaking practice. Be sure the drawing can elicit the grammar and/or vocabulary in your lesson‘s objective, and that it contains enough details to give each student a chance to cite something original. Make a rough copy of your drawing while you‘re planning your lesson to be sure you can execute it on the board, and that you can draw it quickly while students are focused on another task.
Although of course the standard game of bingo is well-known by many people, and played by many as a leisure activity, what is not so widely known is that modified versions of bingo can be of great use in education. In fact, bingo is becoming increasingly common in classrooms, and can be used as a teaching aid in a number of K-12 subjects including reading, vocabulary, math, foreign languages and even science and history, as well as in adult education, in for example English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.
Have students make their own materials. Students love to produce materials. A good idea is to have them create a worksheet and then exchange with a partner. They love to challenge each other and it‘s good practice for accuracy with spelling and grammar. Make-your-own word search and crossword puzzles (great for vocabulary lessons) are always hits in the ESL classroom. The teacher should monitor the work closely to catch and correct any errors before students exchange worksheets.
What you can do to make working on printable worksheets more enjoyable for your child may often depend on the age and interests of the child. For example, older children may have to read a poem which is on the sheet and then write their own poem in the same sort of style. If they have been used to playing word games while growing up this shouldn‘t be a problem, you just have to find a way of making the doing of it attractive. One thing that they might enjoy is if you put on a favourite cd and get them to see if they can use some of the main phrases from that in a different way, i.e. in the style of the poem.
