5 Senses Flashcards: That looks ...

vocabulary: cool, itchy, silly, fun/like fun, bored, angry, heavy, painful, busy, difficult, simple, crowded, cute, good/delicious, dangerous, like an elephant, like a butterfly, scary, too big, (see)

Mark's Note: These cards also introduce the the concepts of 'too' and 'like' as a simile. I'll be adding game cards, bingo cards and maybe some other things to use with these cards.

I also use these cards to help the students express spontaneous thoughts and try to keep them from speaking L1. I think if you teach these you'll see that it really does help the students express themselves.
