Game is an essential part of my teaching strategies. Why? Through games I am able to encourage students to participate. I am also able to make my students think and have fun at the same time. And yes, this livens my lessons. I told you from my previous posts that I came from Anuban (Kindergarten) to College Level now. I have changed my subjects from Introduction to English to English Conversation (plus some subjects for Accounting and Computer Science). But there is one thing that has never changed, and this is using GAMES in my lessons.
Games is a tiring preparation for the teachers and of course very costly, too. A game needs preparation and prizes or tokens should be given to the winners too so that they will be inspired to join more. However, since this is an engaging activity, 98% of participation from the class is achieved. that means to say even the shy students could have points in participation through games. In summation, tired + cost = “learning” I don’t regret just fine with me.
Game 1: Arranging the letters.
1. Dividing the class into two or three groups.
2. The objective of this game is for the students to arrange the letters one by one.
3. If a student brought wrong letter, she/he will come back to get the right one.
The first group who completes the letters from A to Z will get the prize.
