Adults and games

My Flex/Top Flex students usually ask for game activities in class. This is paradise for a teacher, isn’t it? So I suggested my Flex 6 group last semester to have some game moments. But all games in the classroom must have a purpose; they can be  miming games to practice continuous tenses, questions and answers to review, recycle or consolidate structures , board games for different purposes, etc. After trying all these things we all know they really work, I had an idea: to go bowling! It’s an activity adults could really enjoy. Some go bowling with friends on the weekend. So, why not go bowling in class?

 To play it in class, we needed to adapt the rules of the game: According to the number of pins they knocked down, there would be a question. The questions ranged from the most simple, for students who got close to a strike, to the most complex ones . The questions were prepared by the students themselves in a previous activity in which we were reviewing structures.

It was a real good time!
