Level 1, 2
Copy Only
Classroom activities for students learning English as an additional language. These photocopiable materials can be used to make language games for English as an additional language (EAL) and languages students, across all year levels. The games consolidate and reinforce skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing, and give students a chance to use a range of language functions important for working and playing with others. Game packs can be prepared so that the games are readily accessible to teachers and students. Many suggestions on how to play a range of games are provided. The games are based 19 topics that are usually taught to newly arrived EAL students including: Actions, Animals, Beach, Body, Clothes, Food, Plants and gardens, School, Transport and Weekend activities.
