Vocab Slap

Another great vocabulary game from Maria Heron’s workshop at the TESOL-SPAIN Convention. It’s a great game which can be played again and again and requires very little preparation.

Write the selected vocabulary on cards and place them face up on the table. As I said, there are different variations of the game which I’ll explain below, but the aim is to slap the correct word in order to win a point for the team.

English-English – say the word in English, good for lower levels and young learners
Translation – say the word in L1
Synonyms and Antonyms – for work with adjectives and some verbs
Definition – give a definition of the word
Mime – works with most vocabulary: adjectives, verbs, nouns

…and I’m sure there’s more!
