Don’t Mention It 01

Don't Mention It 01This is a seasonal oral language activity in a Powerpoint Presentation that can be done with pupils probably in the middle/senior classes. A pupil stands with their back to the IWB screen while another pupil faces the screen and describes to the first pupil what the object on the screen is. However, they must not mention any of the three words on the right hand side of the slide.

This forces the pupil to be clever with his/her use of language and sentence construction. The aim is to develop fluency of thought, speech and delivery. The first pupil needs to be able to guess the word that is underneath the image.

There are 30 slides in this resource. This oral language game could be played at any time during the school day.

You can choose to download the Powerpoint file by clicking on the link below or to view the presentation in the embedded Slideshare. I’ve also included the presentation as small cards (6 slides per page) if you’d prefer to print those out and have a pupil describe what’s on the card and get the class to guess what he/she is talking about.
