Default Re: Does anyone know some good activities for large classes?

I use this with lower level adults to teach prepositions. It works with kids very well, we have done it at church as well (teaching a different concept altogether)

Find a simple picture in a magazine or newspaper, or draw one yourself on a large 11 x 17 piece of paper. Choose one student to be the "artist", let them volunteer or pick someone. Then, show the class the picture and don't let the artist see it. Have the students tell the artist how to draw the picture using on, next to, between etc. Then when it's done, see how close the artist is to the original picture. You can do this several times if you have different pictures. I have used pictures of homes and rooms, they are simple for the students. You can also introduce new vocabulary like roof, chimney, window pane etc. Good luck.
