Board games are varied , each has got its special rules. We ,as teacher, can use these board games to teach different aspects of the language.
Today, I have chosen to design my own SNAKES AND LADDERS GAME . I have inserted words in the game to make it meaningful. The board game in the pictures belongs to sight word website and I have added questions by hand. The one you will receive , I have designed it myself and everything is written so you don’t need to write by hand.
The original game (snakes and ladders )is composed of dice and players only , but for my game it contains more items.
By the end of the lesson , pupils will be able to use prepositions of place to locate different parts of the house.
1.The teacher divides learners into groups of mixed abilities.
2.He provides each group with a board game , dice and player pieces .
3.The teacher pins a plan of a house on the board ( You are free to choose any design you want , what matters is the use of prepositions of place to locate the parts of the house).
4.Also, the teacher sticks pictures that represent what does each room in the house contain .
Example: the sink , the bathtub , the cooker , the coffee table , the sofa, the bed, the bedside lamp, the bedside table , the mirror……..etc)
5. To motivate learners and to make them work seriously , the teacher informs them that the pupil who get 5 correct answers , he will get a lollipop or any kind of sweets.
Pupils roll the dice and start answering plenty of questions :
Example of questions on the board game:
1.Do you live in a flat?
2.Is your house big
3.Do you play in the kitchen?
4.Where do you live?
5.Where do we find a sofa?
6.Where does your mother cook lunch?
7.Do you live in the city?
8. Where is the garden?
9.What’s opposite the kitchen?…………….etc
If you analyse these questions , you find that pupils are going to revise parts of the house , what does each room contain using YES/NO and WH questions . And the ultimate objective is that pupils use the prepositions of place to locate parts of the house.
