'Stock your pantry' some and any Go Fish variation
I use Go Fish to practice some and any in questions. I have paired cards; one with a picture of a food item and the other with the word. The students first do matching to learn the vocab and then play Go Fish. There are two rounds: first the question is "Do you have any X?" The other student either replies "Yes, I do" or "No, I don't." (This can also obviously be done with 'has got'.) When the students finish all the cards they check to see what they have in their pantry and what they can or can't cook tonight. Then we play the second round: "Can I have some X?" This way the students see the difference between some and any in the question. This time the response is "Yes, you can, Here you go." or "I'm sorry. I don't have any X" This game works great to teach food vocab and the some/any distinction. It works best in small groups though.
