Whilst having a relaxing weekend ... planning lessons for the next week 😝 I came up with a new idea.
I was browsing various books looking for materials when an activity from Brainy 5 caught my attention. It was a simple activity practising vocabulary and two phrases:
What does ... mean?
What's ... in Polish?
Naturally, I spent the next 3 to 4 hours obsessing about how to put my own spin on it to make it more fun and more .... Montenglish 😝 It's now been 6 hours from the moment I saw the activity and I am writing this post to share my new material with you 😁
You are looking at a new card game practising 6 different classroom phrases and the vocab from Brainy 5 Unit 1 (and a bit more). There are two different types of cards: ones with words in English and ones with words in Polish. Here's how to play the game:
deal 7 cards to each player (I'd suggest up to 4 people playing)
leave the rest of the cards in the middle
in turns players pick one of their cards
the aim is to find a card with the right translation:
if the card has a English word on it they have to ask "What does 'windy' mean?"
if the card had an Polish word on it they have to ask "What's "wietrznie" in English?"
if they ask the wrong question they miss a turn
they chose a specific player to answer this question:
if this specific player has the right card they have to say "I think it's 'wietrznie'
