Learning through games in groups 3 & 4

We have just finished a book study of: There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. It was a very strange story about an old lady who ate a: fly, spider, bird, cat, dog, cow and horse. Can you imagine it? After acting out the story we also played the game called ‘tummy ache’. While a small group played this game, the rest of us played ‘snap’ and ‘snakes and ladders’. We talked about vocabulary like: up the ladder, down the snake, counter, die, it’s your turn. The children played very well together and tried very hard to say things in English.
