Wink Clothing/Places Game + Grammar "He/She needs [noun]."

I'm back! Yay!

Things have been really busy lately, but I finally managed to finish my most recent project, a "dress-up" game that is gender-neutral.

Here's a pic of it:



I didn't draw any of this myself.... I used Making Friend's doll templates and laminated each piece individually, and then used MES-English's Places vocabulary cards. I made the spinner on my own.

However, the spinner is a bit time consuming... My original thought was to make it like the American Pretty Pretty Princesses game, but in the end I realized it would be a lot more effective if I crammed other grammar into the game as well. So, here are the rules:

Things you will need:

-Places flashcards, or Times of the Day flashcards
-a one to two minute timer (I've been using my phone)
-Making Friend's doll pieces (possibly with extra pink pieces, if you're dealing with a lot of young girls in your class)

Each student picks a base to work from. Show boys that there are plenty of boy hairstyles and boy clothes so they won't feel like they are being forced to play with dolls (though I haven't had a problem with this yet, I'm anticipating i might in the future.) Pick a places/time flashcard or have the students take turns picking cards for every round. Inform the student that they will only have 1 minute or 2 minutes to dress their doll appropriately for the scene/time. I usually make a doll too, and during the first round, I dress my doll appropriately, but in the second round, I don't. This is where the grammar "He/She needs a..." comes in.

For example, say I pull the "desert" card, but dress my doll for bedtime. I ask the students "Is (s)he okay?" Most of the time they laugh and say "NO!!!!" So I ask, "What does (s)he need?" At first, the kids will only say the clothing items, which is fine, but older or more advanced kids can be challenged to say "(S)he needs shoes, a shirt, pants, etc...." The kids like it a lot!

Here are some more pictures:

I just read your clothing game and I think is marvellous! Is a multitasking grammar game.

Great game! Makes me miss those years when I used to teach in primary school.
