Divide the class into two.
Explain the rules. You will give the students a category.
Call 2 students from each team to the board.
Set 2 minutes and tell them to write the words that come to their mind.

Adjectives that describe personality.
2. Right Word, Wrong Place
Prepare a handout with newly learned structures or some quotes on the topic you’d like to discuss in the class.
Make grammatically incorrect sentences changing the place of two words in the sentence and ask students to correct them.
3. Catch the words
Draw a circle and write some letters with which students form words. Prepare a handout jumbling the words you’ve recently studied in the class.
On slips of papers, write sentences or ask students to write sentences.
Put the students in pairs.
Give each pair 4 slips of papers, preferably the same 4 sentences and tell them to write a dialogue and insert the sentences they have on the slips of papers into their dialogues.
5. Comprehension Questions
Write the topic of the reading passage/listening activity on the board.
Tell students to copy it on a piece of paper and then write a question about it.
Then pass the paper to their friend and ask them to write another question. Then tell them to pass it to the next student. When each student receive their own papers, ask them to read the text and try to find if any of the questions are answered.

Hello Eva, my name is Sarah Carl and I am a junior, elementary education major at the University of South Alabama. Monday mornings are always difficult to get the students brains awake and these activities are great ways to get the day started. Thank you for the fun ideas. I will keep these in mind and use them when I have my own class one day. My blog is carlsarahedm310.blogspot.com
