たいへんですが楽しい記憶ゲームです。１人が、たとえば "I like pizza." のように言います。次のプレイヤーはその後に別の何かを続けて、たとえば "I like pizza and ice-cream." のように言います。次の子どもはさらに別の物を追加して、たとえば "I like pizza, ice-cream and reading." のように言います。最後の単語の前に正しく "and" を置けるよう教えましょう。最初は "a" で始まる言葉、次に "b" で始まる言葉、……というようにアルファベット順にすれば覚えるのが楽になりますし、その文字が言葉の最初に来る場合の音価の練習にもなります（"I like apples, bananas, chocolate and dogs."）。このアクティビティはグループでも親子のペアでもできます。
Assorted activities for teaching young learners - Part two
Following on from last week, here are a few more fun activities that can be used to practice various language points in class or at home.
This is a challenging but fun memory exercise. One person makes a statement such as "I like pizza". The next player must add an item to the chain, e.g. "I like pizza and ice-cream". The next person adds another, e.g. "I like pizza, ice-cream and reading." You should teach the correct use of "and" before the last item. Using sequential letters of the alphabet makes the chain easier to remember, and helps practice initial phonics ("I like apples, bananas, chocolate and dogs"). The activity is suitable for both groups and parent-child pairs.
The teacher gives students a large selection of word cards; students have to rearrange the words to make sentences in response to the teacher's prompts. You could read out a target sentence, or give visual prompts using flashcards or board drawings. This is a good activity for practicing punctuation such as question marks, periods and capital letters, and works very well as a team game.
The class stands in a circle; one person starts with a ball, counts "one" and passes the ball to their left. The next person counts "two", and passes the ball to their left, and so on up to ten. Then you choose a number (say, three) and a fruit (say, pineapple). From then on, "three" is always replaced by "pineapple": "one, two, pineapple, four..." After you reach ten, have a student pick another number (e.g. two) and another fruit (e.g. banana). This time you would count "one, banana, pineapple, four...". Continue until all the numbers have been replaced by fruit. You can of course use any vocabulary set; it works best for recently studied material.
We hope you get a chance to use some or all of these activities with your children.
