ELS Barrier Game developing listening and speaking skillsMonday, 26 May 2014 11:14
The ELS team received a teaching resource made by Miss Julie, (Miss Melinda’s sister).
This ‘Barrier Game’ develops listening and speaking skills.
You place a barrier between 2 students. Each student has a doll shape, an identical set of hats, shirts and trousers for their ‘person’. One student selects a hat, shirt and trousers for their person and then describes the outfit to the other student. The listener has to choose the outfit based on the description. Students then compare the outfits to see if they have been successful in speaking and listening.
The first ELS group to play this game came from Year 3. It was a valuable learning experience that allowed even the shyest speaker to talk in a non-threatening context. All of the students were enthusiastic. They developed more specific vocabulary incorporating mathematical language.
Students comments included “ The bestest ( best) game I have ever played.” “ I like this game.” “I had fun.”
