Family Flash Cards Game Ideas and Tips

I like to play the Treasure Hunt game with the Family cards. I put all the cards face down on the floor and ask the children, “Where is Grandfather?” I have kids answer with “Here.” or “Here he is.”

I usually just have students point to the cards so they do not bend them. Then I will quickly turn over the card and ask, “Is this Grandfather?” The kids have to answer “Yes” or “No.”

This game can be a lot of fun depending on how excited you get when you ask the students the questions. A good teacher has to be a good entertainer. Novice teachers sometimes have trouble with this when they first start out. Any game or activity can be made fun with the right excitement and presentation.

TIP: Students learn best when English is used in real contexts. Don’t be afraid to interrupt games to ask the students real questions related to their lives. When playing family games, ask students questions about their own families or have them ask you. Here are some questions to get you started:

  • “What is your brother’s name?
  • “Do you have a sister?”
  • “How old is your mother?”
  • “Does your brother like chocolate?
  • “Where does your grandmother live?”
  • “Does your mother play the piano?”
  • “What color is your father’s car?”
