~:| Suggestions |:~

01. After you cut along the edges, glue  the picture cards on a  coloured.

02. Laminate the cards for safe keeping and survive the constant use.


~:| Teacher’s Instruction |:~

01. Get students into a circle on the floor for better view.

02. Show each card and say the name (or elicit it). Give the card to the student next to you and ask him/her to say it out loud then pass it to her neighbour.

[Go over the whole set; pictures and words. This helps weaker students to revise the vocab. before starting any new activity]

02. Put the red cards upside down on one side, and the green ones on the other.

03. Invite some students to play with you, and be the first one to start

-” Look! One blow… Flip! (say the name of the card)… One yellow… Flip! (read the word)

I encourage you to say the action (flip/turn over) to help exposing the students to more language. You don’t have to explain what flip means.. They will get it from the action associated.

04. Give the other helpers a turn to imitate your actions. Encourage reading and saying the vocabulary out loud.
