Letters and Numbers

Objective
Can be used to practice whatever students are currently studying
  • Students are divided into six groups and are each given a set of 26 cards. On one side of the card is a number, and the other side is a letter of the alphabet. A=1, B=2, C=3 etc.
  • Ask students to push their desks together and spread the cards on their tables with the numbers facing up. The teacher then reads numbers, and as the numbers are read the students should flip over those cards to reveal the letters. The students must work together to make a word using all the cards which have been read out.
    E.g. 5, 8, 16, 12 > E, H, P, L = Help
  • First team to finish raises their hand, and if correct, their team receives a point. The team with most points wins!
