Your time starts now
In this flash card game a team of children have to say in English as many flash cards as they can in one minute. You hold them up one at a time. If they dont know the english you teach them to say pass. For every correct answere the children get a point and for the cards that they pass on no points. To keep score you put the pass cards in one pile and the correctly answered cards in another and then add them up. The team with the most points wins. I have a watch with a timer that counts down from 1 minute. In a class of 30 I have 3 teams of 10 each labled team A,B and C. With the cards that they pass on I recite the new vocabulary to the whole class before starting with the new team. The record so far is 41 correct answeres. I use this with adults too.
