KARUTA - Japanese Slap-the-Word Game Directions




ORAL LANGUAGE BUILDING - POWERPOINT PICTURE GAME - GREAT TO PRACTICE INTERPERSONAL

Directions:
Teacher can use PowerPoint slides, a blank book, or any photos. Divide the class into two teams.
Use the first slide as your modeling slide, giving points to both sides as they tell you everything they can about the picture they see. Use a timer to give the teams 30 seconds to come up with as many vocabulary words or statements about the picture as they can. After 30 seconds, Team A has the first chance to answer. The teacher awards 1-4 points for answers (add more points for sentences, versus just words). When the Team A has “exhausted” their answers, the Team B can say anything the first team missed. Teams take turns having the first chance to give answers. I use bingo chips and cups on two desks for points. For older students, you can say that if Team B says any answers that have already been said, you will take points OUT of their cup.
