Flashcards activities:


Missing flashcards
 
A  set of flashcards is sticked on the board and children say the words or  repeat them after a teacher. Then ask the children to close their eyes  and remove one or two of the flashcards. Children open their eyes and  name missing flashcards.
 

Gaps
 
A  set of flashcards is sticked in a row on the board. Children say or  repeat the pointed words. Then remove the flashcards one by one and the  children name the pictures as if they were still on the board.
 

Lip reading
 
Take a set of flashcards that you introduce before, mouth one of the words silently and the students try to guess the word.
 

Repeat if it’s true
 
Show  a flashcard and say the word or sentence. If you say the correct word  (sentence), students repeat it. If not, they stay silent.
 

Mime the word
 
Ask  one student to mime the word from the picture and the rest of the class  try to guess. Who guess correctly mimes the next flashcard. This  activity is a great way to teach asking questions and giving short  answers – students from the class ask questions and a student in front  of the class answers.
 

Stand up and sit down
 
Divide  the class into 2-4 groups and ask them to sit down. Put a set of 3-6  flashcards in front of each group. Say the words one by one and the  right group of students stands up for a moment and sits down again.
