ESL Flashcard Game: Hoops
An active game especially suitable for youngsters.
Directions: For this game, you will need a big room and some hula hoops. Place the hula hoops around the room on the floor, and put one flashcard in each hula hoop. Then, yell out one of the flashcards, and every student must then run and put one foot in the hula hoop that contains that flashcard. The last student to put their foot in calls out the next flashcard for everyone to run to!
This game is especially good because it lets the kids get rid of some energy while also giving the lower-level kids extra practice (because they are usually the last ones to reach the hula hoop, and thus the next ones to read a flashcard).
