Flashcard Tag

21 Jan

This activity would require large flashcards.  I usually find some clip art, paste them nice and large in a Word document and print them out.  The image only, no words.

Use flashcards to play a game of tag.

Place two sets of flashcards on your desk, table or on the ledge of the chalkboard.
Divide the class into two teams, and instruct the teams to form single-file lines.
On your mark, the first player on each team races to the pile of flashcards, holds up the top card for you to see and says the word in the TL.
If the answer is given correctly, the player races back to their team and tags the next person, who continues the game.
In the event that a player doesn’t know or gives the wrong answer, he/she continues selecting cards until she answers correctly.
If the team helps the player, that player must name a new flashcard.
The first team to answer all of the flashcards in their pile wins.
