Merry Christmas everyone! Today’s post is a final round-up of festive activities – I’ve tried to choose fun ones that don’t take too much prep time. If you’re teaching today it’ll be a unique experience, but try to make the most of it.
Larry Ferlazzo has a great list of Christmas videos to use with your students – some of these are extracts from longer films, others stand-alone in their own right. Once you’ve chosen a video, Claudia Pesce has some good ideas of how to use them at busyteacher.org.
There are lots of different ideas for Christmas games and activities at tesolzone.com. If you’re teaching young learners on Christmas Day it’s a nice idea to make it into a Christmas party lesson using a mix of EFL games and traditional childrens’ party games.
Good EFL games:
Bingo, Pictionary, Hangman, 20 Questions/Back to the Board (use Christmas vocab throughout!)
Childrens’ party games:
Musical statues, Musical Chairs, Pin the Nose on Rudolph, Pass the Parcel
I’ll be taking a few days off from the blog between now and New Year, so have a happy and peaceful Christmas, and I’ll see you in 2017!
