EFL Advent Calendar – 16th December


Santa Says – 16th December

For: Young learners

Level: Elementary

Time: 5 – 10 mins

‘Simon Says’ is always a sure-fire hit with young learners. Why not play a festive version instead: ‘Santa Says’! Once you’ve started the game, let your students take turns to be ‘Santa’ and to give the instructions. Anyone who’s ‘out’ can help you spot who’s making mistakes.

Kim over at theresourcefulmama.com has a great printable with some Christmas/winter-themed instruction ideas – adapt accordingly for the level of your students.

Top tip: if you teach children’s classes, parenting blogs and websites can often be a great source of craft/game ideas that are easily adaptable for the EFL classroom.
