Try this activity to practise house vocabulary - pronunciation as well as spelling. If it is necessary introduce or revise the vocabulary before the game. I hope your students will learn a lot having great fun.
- rooms and furniture vocabulary (kitchen, bathroom, basement, attic, garage, living room, study, bedroom, armchair, cooker, desk, washbasin, wardrobe, table, cupboard, fridge, sofa, bookcase)
- sentence formation
Materials: a set of cards for each group (click here to download the cards)
1. Divide the class into groups three or four.
2. Give each group a set of cards.
3. Students put the cards face down on the desk.
4. Students turn over two cards in turn.
5. If the cards match, they form a sentence with the word (for example, ARM+CHAIR: There is an armchair in the living room.). If the sentence is correct, they keep the cards as a point.
6. If the cards do not match or the sentence is incorrect, the student flips the cards face down again and the next student has a go.
7. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end of the game.
- You can cut out the cards before the lesson and laminate them or ask the students to do it before the game.
- With younger students you can omit sentence formation and ask them to pronounce the word correctly each time they find a pair.
