Motivating activities are needed

Unread postby sedaevgulu » Thu May 17, 2007 2:07 pm

Hello my name is Seda I am a teacher of English in a primary school in Turkey.In the school I work classes are very crowded
(45-50 pupils for each class) and my students are very poor.Most of them are working after school so they don't have any enthusiasm for learning English,therefore I need practical,motivating activities espcially suitable for crowded classes.
Any ideas,suggestions wellcome.
Thanks just for now.

Dear Seda,
It is a challenge to have so many students and it must be very tiring trying to keep on top of the noise if you try any games or activities with movement.

I do have some free games that you can sign up for which have large class variants and you could try these out.

Here are two links to two of the free games for you to try:

I hope they go well for you.

Kind regards
