Post Activity to learn vocabulary

This year I found a new activity to learn and practice vocabulary. We call it the "Magic Box". You need a card box (you can see through it) and little objects to put inside.
Every English class one or more kids list everything that's in the box (we have now 14 different things), and then we add something new.
Now we have things from the classroom but also things that the kids bring for the Magic box (little toys for example).
It works very well, the children are very interested and eager to do the list.

It's a good activity to start the class.

What a lovely idea. Thank you for sharing it. A fine way to keep revising vocabulary.

I always do this activity at the beginning of the year, but with questions, such as What is your name?, age?....etc and it works great too.If they do it correctly, they have a sticker.......bye

I use this game: I prepared a board with the letters of the alphabet, then prepared a set of cards. In each card there is a question whose answer starts with letter a, one question whose answer starts with letter b, and so on, covering all the letters in the board. Students roll the dice. If they land on letter "b" they are asked the question and they know that the answer starts with letter b. The objective is to get as many letters in the board as possible. If they fail the question, they can go back there but only after getting a different letter first.
