Dinâmicas para volta às aulas

Dinâmicas para volta às aulas costumam ser um recurso muito útil para o início do ano letivo. Afinal, que professor não fica ansioso para conhecer os novos alunos ou sente aquele friozinho na barriga ao  imaginar e planejar atividades para grupos que ainda não conhece? Tudo isso faz parte da vida de ser professor.

Por esse motivo, reunimos algumas atividades de fácil preparação para auxiliar você nesse início de ano. Esta lista contém warm-up activities e fillings que farão seus alunos falarem, lerem, escutarem e escreverem em inglês.

Two Truths and a Lie

Level: Mid or high

Players: Whole class

Grammar Point: Used to, daily routines, present perfect, etc.

Time: 15-25 min

How to Play: Students think of three facts about themselves, 2 that are true and one lie.Remind the students that the lie can be the first, second or third sentence.

As a writing activity: each student writes down their name at the top of a sticky note and their three sentences below. Students walk around the room, putting a tick on the sentence they think is a lie. Then, students take turns revealing the correct answer.

As a speaking activity: Each student says their three sentences aloud, repeating if necessary. Next, hold a vote to see which sentence the other students think is the lie. The speaker can then reveal the correct answer. Two Truths and a Lie can be used as an ice breaker activity to get to know students on the first day of class. It can also be used to review or produce a grammar point. Challenge the students to include a certain grammar point in their sentences (ex: used to, daily routines, present perfect, etc.).

What Are You Doing?

Level: Low or mid
Players: Whole class or small groups
Grammar Point: Present continuous
Time: 15- 25 min
How to Play: In this improve activity students can practice present continuous as well as vocabulary. Form a circle with a student in the middle. The student will mime an action (cooking, sleeping,etc.). A student from the circle will ask “Hey (name), what are you doing?” The student in th middle of the circle replies with a different action, unrelated to the action they are miming.
(ex: “I’m watching tv” while they mime that they are cooking.)

The student who asked the question then enters the circle and begins doing this action (following the example, they mime that they are watching tv), while the original student rejoins the circle.

Now, a new student asks the question “Hey (name), what are you doing?” and the activity continues. Encourage students to be creative in their verbs, and you are sure to get some laughs!

Big Red Balloon

Level: Low or mid
Players: Whole class
Grammar Point: Phonics or spelling
Time: 10 – 20 minutes
How to Play: Draw a picture of a hot air balloon on the board and announce to the class “I’m going up in a big red balloon and I’m bringing a ________________.”

Depending on your grammar point (sound or spelling pattern), you will give an example of an item that fits your chosen pattern. For this example, let’s use double letters, so imagine I tell my students I’m bringing a tree.

Ask students to guess what else you are bringing by repeating the sentence “I’m going up in a big red balloon and I’m bringing a _______________” and filling in the blank with their own example.

If their example matches your pattern, tell them “Yes, you are.” If their example doesn’t match the pattern, tell them “No, you aren’t.”
You will be met with confused looks at first, but eventually, it will click with a student or two! If your students aren’t quite getting it, give them a few examples to coax them along.
