Fly Swatter Game for Teachers at TESOL 2016

This video demonstrates one segment of a session "Games and Activities to Promote Pronunciation, Speaking, and Listening" that I presented at the TESOL Convention in Baltimore, MD, in April 2016.

For this super-duper advanced group of teachers of English to speakers of other languages, we played the Fly Swatter Game with 13 words from Look in the Lake Deck 5 Vans and Fans:
bass, cab, cap, cuff, cup, desk, dish, fan, fist, van, vase, vest, vine

For students of English, use fewer choices depending on the proficiency of your learners. I recommend viewing Pronunciation Doctor's Games Playlist for ideas about other games and activities to promote communication, vocabulary, grammar, speaking, pronunciation, and listening.

  1. Hi Marsha, I just attended your Playing Cards session at the ARKTESOL conference. I had asked about criteria for making sets of cards for particular content areas and you had shown a slide showing the process you went through/suggest for those making their own cards. Would you mind please posting that slide and/or this process.
