Christmas Food Reversals

This is a Christmas oral language activity that can be done with pupils in middle and senior class standards. On each card are the names of three items of Christmas food. The purpose of the activity is to help develop the working memory of the pupils, while at the same time encouraging them to speak aloud and learn some new language. The more you do this activity, the better pupils become at it. It is also an activity that pupils will really enjoy.

Christmas Talk About

Christmas Talk AboutThis is an oral language activity that can be done with pupils from about first class upwards (unless the teacher reads the topics on the card for the infant classes). On each card is written a Christmas-themed word. The purpose of the activity is for the pupils to talk about the word for as long as they can, aiming for at least a minute, which can be quite a long time for some pupils. The more you do this activity, the better pupils become at it. The aim is to develop fluency of thought, speech and delivery.
