1 Emotions Spin
This in-depth activity builds students list of words for emotions. Put a spinner in the middle, and have students spin it. Come up with a time when you feel that emotion. Because anyone needs help explaining how they feel, you can add this activity to your vocabulary lesson plans.
First you need to pick a category of words like fruits, sports or feelings. Like hot potato, pass a bal around with music playing in the background. When the student catches the item, they have to say a word in that category. If the music ends, the person holding the item loses.
In pairs, connect the last letter of a word by thinking of a word that starts with that letter. Like the English version of the Japanese game “Karuta”, it boosts vocabulary by putting their thinking cap on.
If you want to have students explore their future, then you can add this “occupations match” activity to your vocabulary lesson plans. Simply, match the 11 occupations to the picture. There’s some funny ones in here too.
