A classroom activity for the start of the new academic year

New Academic Year

In order to start the new academic year on a positive note, why not organise some classroom games for pupils to revise grammar structures and vocabulary, whilst also getting them to work on improving their listening and speaking skills? Here are some activities which allow the teacher to test course pre-requisites in a fun way whilst using a kinaesthetic approach to learning. The word kinaesthetic derives from the Greek kinéo (to move) andaisthesis (meaning sensation). So let’s get to work because as J.Piaget says “Play is the answer to how anything new comes about.”
