ESL Games: Bullseye

From YWAMKnowledgeBase

When teaching young kids English (or any other language) a game can be essential not only for them to learn, but for you to motivate them to participate. Here's a idea for you if you're looking for a game.


Go to the blackboard and draw a circle and then draw a larger circle around that one and finally another larger one around that. You should have 3 circles that increase in size. Also known as a bullseye.

Each circle is given a point total with the smallest circle being worth the most. Maybe 5, 3, and 1. If a student answers a question correctly they are rewarded with a chance at throwing a ball at the target. Whatever circle they hit that's the point total they've earned for their team. The team at the end of class with the most points wins.

For another active ESL game check out hit the target.
