About

A short post about a very BIG topic - Guessing. Along with prediction, it is a very important skill in any English teachers arsenal and one that can be used with great effectiveness.

Last night, was visiting this amazing site - Children's Books Online: The Rosetta Project (to make a literary book I'm working on) I couldn't help putting some things from it together to make the Riddle Book more presentable.

Students read and guess. You can even take the ppt and print out the pages and give to students who can do this in pairs/small groups. A nice activity and appealing for the "retro" photos!

Other ideas for guessing games? Just a few brief ones off the top of my head....

1. I've use the green board a lot with flashcards stuck on it. But just a big series of photos will do. Describe and students guess. Try these online photos of musicians!

2. Pictionary / Charades are BIG! Try Draw My Thing online...

3. Online. Why not reverse things and let students see if the computer can guess? Try AKINATOR! Also, for young learners - What's In The Bag is great! Or how about, Where's The Bell for phonics?
