These are like the flash cards I put up before, but they are smaller and used for a different game. This is a speaking/matching game, so only print one set. The aim of this game is to practice vocabulary. These cards are made specifically for Japanese STS, but the cards are fully editable so you can replace the Japanese with whatever language is useful to you. Every ST will receive ONE card. The point is for each student to find the match to their card, showing comprehension. The STS walk around and find a partner. They rock, paper, scissors to see who will ask the question. The speaker will ask "Are you a month?" or "Are you a day?". The STS must answer "Yes, I am." or "No, I am a month/day." If the answer is "yes", the speaker then asks "Are you _____ (whatever is on the card)?". The STS must then answer "Yes, I am." or "No, I am not." If the answer is "yes", the STS stay paired and check with the teacher. If the answer is "no", the STS find a new partner. The size of the class controls how much vocabulary you can use, but you may have the time to do the game again with different cards/vocabulary. Also, the teacher may have to be a match for someone. This is a complete set of 38 cards. If you have more than 38 STS, maybe you can use them as pair checkers or print an additional set. I created this game because I noticed some students were still having problems remembering the English, even when asked in their own language. I made this for more practice. It was a big hit with my students screaming, "One more time." The cards are to be PRINTED ON B4 sized paper, otherwise you have to resize it. Thanks to Phillip Martin for the clipart. I hope you enjoy!
