Wacky stories – Comminucative ESL Game to practise vocabulary and tenses.
|Aim:||To practice vocabulary, all 12 tenses and conditional sentences (adjustable). To practice storytelling techniques (building suspense, flash-backs, flash-forwards, etc.)|
|Interaction:||Groups of three or four|
|Exercise type:||Speaking, storytelling|
|Language:||Depends on the level of Students|
|Level:||A2 – C2|
|Materials:||1 set, cut up per group (the set can include as many cards as you decide and may vary depending on the level of the students).|
|Procedure:||In this activity the students make a chain story, using the words and images on the cards, as well as the tenses or grammar structures indicated on them. With a little imagination and sense of humor from your students this game can get hilarious. If you want to emphasize the use of tenses and grammar structures, there is an extra tense component on each card, this component instructs the students not only to use a noun, a verb or an adjective on the card but to construct the sentence in a certain tense. This can bring into the story flash-backs and flash-forwards (so you may need to pre-teach these storytelling techniques first).
