Colors TEFL Flash Cards Game Ideas and Tips
You can play the Treasure Hunt game like I explained with the family flash cards but I often play a game with small toy cars.
Children love toys, especially ones that move, so try to use them as much as possible in your classes. I have several small cars and animals that if pulled backwards will then power themselves forward. They only cost a dollar or two but will create immense enjoyment for countless classes.
I line up all the color flash cards (you can use any set) face up on the floor. They can be in a straight line or spread out over the floor. Each child takes a turn to pull the car and propel it onto a card. If it lands on or near a flash card, the children chant the color.
I usually get the kids to chant as a group. “What color is it? It is red.” Once they are more proficient you can have students ask or answer individually. Once a card is called, take it out of the game area so that children can have an opportunity to practice all the colors.
Throughout the game, ask other questions like:
- What is your favorite color?
- What color are apples?
- Are bananas purple?
Don’t let the structure of the game limit what you do. Always try to ask a lot of questions meaningful to kids that are out of context of the game you are playing. That is where the real learning of the class takes place.
TIP: Speaking English as a group is much less stressful than individually, so get the class to speak together when children are younger or learning new targets.
