Conjunctions - and/but/because

Escape from each room by using the secret clues. Each true answer gives you an opportunity to find a clue in the room and click on it. If you are lucky enough you can get out only in one right click on the right clue but if not you must keep on answering the questions to have new opportunities to try again.
Here is another game which even catches the interest of the most reluctant students. All the students and even the less hardworking students join the lesson in all ears. Because this is an escape game... Kids really enjoy looking for clues and thinking creatively. And with this game I can exploit it and show them the conjunctions. But what is an escape game? After clicking on the right option, you activate an object in the picture. There are 4-6 objects that you can activate. But only one object is working. If you find the correct one, you go through another room. If you click on the wrong object you see another question for another try. And it goes on until you reach your complete freedom. İ.

Here is "How a surprise party can be given!" The target vocabularies are given step by step with pictures and multiple choice tests. The illustrations are funny.

Daily Routines / Simple Present / Test

Click on the right option and then the next button for the next question.
This work is based on SIMPLE PRESENT TENSE. It is a test and its targets are; to revise the simple present in general, to remind the students when to add -s to the verb or not and finally to remind them the daily routine expressions. After the test, as a post activity you may ask the students; "Now, listen everybody... listen and do...close your eyes... and think of the future... you are in 2050... everybody, think how old you are... okay... it is December... the day is Monday... you hear an alarm clock... it is ringing... you wake up and...." here want your students to write a passage about how the day starts, goes on and ends. To speak frankly, if you want them to tell anything without the fear of making mistakes they can surprise you... Whenever I do this exercise I meet with great enthusiasm, eager and creativeness... and also lots of lauhgter. Because when kids thinks themselves as an adult (for example married with children and going work), this excites them a lot. And this gives a great pleasure to a teacher when they do it this way. İ.

Food and drinks

Click on the right food or drink according to the speech bubbles...
This is a game which can be applied to elementary students. With this you can revise the food and drinks. The aim in making this stuff was, first to make it in a funny way and also to show the students the food and drinks as we use them in our real life. In each slide a character tells us a diet menu that s/he will eat. And according to her/his menu the students set the table. If they click on the wrong food or drink, it disappears; but if they click on the right stuff, it goes throuh the table. Whenever I use it in my classes, students especially laugh at the characters I use. Anyway, after the presentation, tell your students to prepare a menu for a person who has got flu/measless/cold, etc. In preparing their menu, want them to use "In the mornings, you should eat ....... / In the afternoon ...etc. Also want your students what the ill person shouldn't eat. Also you may want them to prepare different menus for different people... e.g. for a boxer, an overweight person, a very thin person, a diabetic person , etc. İ. Gürkan BOZKURT

Adjectives / Find the opposite adjective

Click on the opposite picture and then the next button for the next question.
The aim in preparing this slide was to practice and teach the adjectives with its opposites. You can use it to teach the adjectives or when you want your students use "to be verb" ( He is old/tall...) and also as a warm up before you teach comperatives and superlatives. With this they can revise the adjectives. If the students know the word and click on the right picture, an animation appears. However if they click on the wrong picture there appears another animation which are funny enough to make them laugh. So in this work they want to see what animated pictures are behind the wrong answers. Anyway, the goal of this slide is to gain their attention and it really does. İ. Gürkan BOZKURT.

Superhero / Especially for 5th and 6th grades

Click one by one and do the true/false section.
The purpose of this work is to show the students how we can desribe a person with his/her abilities, likes/dislikes, have got/haven't got, can/can't, is/isn't, routines in a day... etc. To do this I created a hero and showed him in different sceenes to descibe who He is, one by one. At the end of the slide you can see a true/false section, a post activity for what we watched. So, tell this to your students before you show this slide. After it's done, want your students to create their own superhero just like the Hugeman. However, you may also want them to choose a superhero that we have already known (superman, batman...etc.) and to write about him. In one of my classes (5th grade) I couldn't do this activity because of the limited time and wanted them to do it as a homework. I wanted them to imagine that they are a superhero/superheroin. And if they can, they will be able to bring a superhero costume to school and wear it before the class and tell us what kind of a superhero/superheroin s/he is. The next week, almost all the students brought costumes with them. Some brought superhero cloaks, some brought masks... When I got in the classroom there were nearly 20 superheroes. I was really surprised. Anyway, they came to the board one by one and told to the class about themselves by miming and doing effects. Among them there were also bad characters such as Joker. It was really fun. İ. Gürkan BOZKURT.

Jobs / Animated ( It works like a powerpoint slide)

Click one by one and learn the jobs.
Instead of just writing on the board and want my students to write, I prepared this presentation. Because they remember much more easily when they see pictures rather than just words. In the slide there are lots of occupations. After this you may want your students how many of them do they remember and tell it to the students. I want a student to tell me the occupations s/he remembers without looking at her/his notebook or anything else... And if s/he can tell 5 or 10 of them, I tell the class if there anyone who can remember more. Then another students repeats what the first student said and adds some more... Suddenly it turns out to be a competition. Believe me a few minutes later you can hear all the occupations... Isn't it what we want! İ. Gürkan BOZKURT

Present Continuous Tense / Children at The Park


Look at the red arrow and find which game are the kids playing and find it above and click on the correct sentence.
To make the grammar points tangible is crucial in gaining a taget language. Before this I used to tell my students to imagine themselves in a playground with whole classmates and would say "I can see, I am sitting on a bench. Emel is skipping rope... What about you... Who is playing what... Tell me!" They would say I of course I would write them on the board. I still do this but before this I show them this slide as a warm-up. With this they feel like they are in the playground... and they smile and emulate... They want to play like the kids at the slide... This is the time when I again, have them all involved in the lesson... İ. Gürkan BOZKURT

Prepositions / where is my hamster?

A runaway hamster, keep your eyes on it and click on the right option....
This game is designed especially for very young learners. They really love it and can't help getting excited when they see the hamster moving. Also you can apply this for 5th and &th grades as well. Here the basic prepositions are given. There is a playful hamster loves hiding. The boy wants our help to find it. And each time we tell where the hamster is, it runs away and hides another place before the boy arrives. İ. Gürkan BOZKURT

Wh- Question Words / find the right option

This grammar point has always been underestimated. Or as far as I have inferred from the students. Because they can understand it, however when it is time to make sentences they failure. To show them the grammar point in real life and to emphasise asking the question, I prepared this slide. In the slides I prepard real life scenes, as I have always done, and wanted the students to find the right question or vice versa. Also I tried add some animations to make it more interesting. I use this to foster my students speaking abilities. İ. Gürkan BOZKURT

Prepositions Game / Hide and Go Seek Game

Read, look and "CLICK" on the correct "PREPOSITION".
It was the very early years of my first teaching experiences... 6th grade students and the topic is "preposition". I drew straw men on the board and a box next to him and I wrote "next to"... Then I noticed that the kids are reluctant to draw pictures of a straw man. Then, the next lesson. I improved my drawing and illustrated a straw man next to a tree and counting with his hand on his eyes(playing hide and seek). Then, I drew lots of things on the board where people may go and hide. I drew a boy hiding in a tree and wrote Ali who is the name of a student in the classroom. Suddenly all the students said:"Teacher, please use my name, too." I said the class if you tell me where you are hiding in the picture then I can draw you there and write your name. That day I had to draw 25 straw men on the board, that means everybody in the classroom. This experience gave me the idea of preaparing such a slide. Today I use this as a warm up. And if I have enough time, I start drawing... . Gürkan BOZKURT

Simple Present Tense

This is a video about a man's routine life... He looks around from his window and tells us what happens as usual. I show this video to my students to let them see how this tense can be used in real life. After the video I want my students to talk about a day of their own, but this time not about what they do everyday. I want them to talk about what people around them do everyday. I want them to think like a documentariest. For example;"My mother wakes up early..." İ. Gürkan BOZKURT
