Grammar lessons are usually seen as the less fun and interactive- but it doesn’t have to be like that all the time. Here are 3 grammar activities you should try in your ESL classes ASAP.
#1 Escape rooms & Stations
Escape rooms and stations are fun and engaging way how to practice grammar of any kind and level. As a bonus, you will get your students moving and interacting with each other- and that is simply a win-win, isn’t it?
Even though flipbooks are more common for students at younger age or lower levels, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a go! The flipbook making stage gives you enough time to revise grammar rules, it is very hands-on & it provides students with ‘a cheatsheet’ they can use whenever little extra support is needed.
Firstly, if you haven’t read the post about teaching with songs here, you should do it right now.
Songs give you a wonderful opportunity to connect learning with something everyone loves- music. Whatever you teach, I’m sure there is a perfect songs for that.
Are you teaching present tenses? Check out Bruno Mars- Just the way you are.
Are you teaching past tenses? Miley Cyrus- Wrecking ball could be a good choice.
Are you teaching conditionals? Try Beyonce- If I were a boy or Adele- If it hadn’t been for love.
You see? Teaching or learning grammar doesn’t have to be boring!
