WARM UP ALPHABET Warm up alphabet is not only a set of beautiful cards, but also an excellent warm-up during the class and a great opportunity to diversify the lessons with kids favourite and familiar games.
A B spin and down around in O times a circle 5 times How to use:
hop.on run to children call the first letter of their names (name of mum, dad, friend, pet, favorite superhero etc.) and perform the task written on this letter card; D the one foot 10 times nearest oor and back active spelling.
Option 1:choose a few words to brush upthe spelling in a fun active form (3-5 words which aren’t too long, e.g. cat, frog, house, ruler etc.
Option 2: divide the students into groups(4-6 people), choose the word from target vocabulary that contains a certain number of letters (according to the number of children in the group)for students to spell in action – each child performs a task on his letter card (all at the same time or one by one). It’s a great idea for TPR, which doesn’t require additional preparations; hangman.
The kids try to guess the secret word calling out the letters one by one.lfa child is wrong, he takes a certain letter card and performs the written task; race (for groups learning the alphabet).
Divide the children into two teams. (it’s better to play outside or inside if the classroom is spacious enough. Put the flashcards on one side of the playground. Players are standing on the other side. The teacher calls a letter, the first representatives of every team run to the cards. The first to bring the correct letter, wins a point for his/her team. The team of losers performs the task written on the back of the letter card; bomb.
Put the cards in the center, the children pass the ballin a circle. Tell them that the ball is a bomb and they have to pass it gently in order not to blow it up. Start a timer for a few seconds.Ask students to pass the “bomb”.When it“blows up”, that student who was holding the ball, takes a card, names a letter, reads the task on the back side and performs it. The quicker the game, more fun it is!
Shuffle the letter cards and put them in a pile. The task is to name as many letters (sounds or words which start with these very letters) in a row as possible for 10 seconds only. When the time is over, the child performs the task written on the next card, which he did not have time to name.
