Flashcard Game: Island Hopping
Review all of your flashcards with the class then divide them into two teams, or into three if you have over 12 students.
The aim of this activity is for students in each team to make their way, one by one, across the classroom towards the teacher, take and say a flashcard, then get back to their team. To do so, students must use two puzzle mats only, to slowly make their way over to you and back to their team again.
The teacher sits across the room from the students with the flashcards fanned out in their hand. When the teams are standing well in a line, the teacher shouts GO and the first player of every team must start racing towards you on their mats.
When a player reaches you, they must take a card and say the word/use the structure, then start making their way back to their team (they keep the flashcard).
Once back, the student goes to the back of the line and the next student now goes. Keep racing until one team have all had a go and gotten back; they are the victors. Each team must say the flashcards they got.
