Language learning with games and reading out loud

Reading Frog & Toad

When you’re learning a new language, don’t forget to have fun!  Because we were finished our book, we took the morning to practice skills by reading out loud, as well as by playing a variety of word games.  “I packed my bags for Jasper” helps for remembering the alphabet, and for using a wide range of words.  My favourite books for reading out loud are the “Frog & Toad” Learn to Read books.  The vocabulary is simple, but not easy, and the stories are funny and enjoyable.  They’re good for practicing rhythm and intonation.  We also hid balls and other objects around the room, and then students had to say where their object was located (under the chair, on the bookshelf), so that we could use prepositions in context.  Finally, we played several word games, with students spelling out 4-letter words (Slam) and using letter tiles to write out “something you like”, a person, a verb, a positive adjective, etc.   Games and reading make a nice change from doing exercises in a book!
