6. Vocab games. Children can pick a card and write the word or a sentence about the picture on the card.
7. Find a partner or make a group. Print out 2 copies and hand them out randomly. Children must then find the person that has their matching picture. To make a group, simply print out more of the same pictures.
8. Play a guessing game as a whole class or small group. An adult can start off by showing the children how to play. Pick a card without anyone seeing and give clues for others to guess the card. For example, I am green, I might grow in a forest, I am often decorated.....
9. Hot and cold game. One child leaves the room. Someone hides a card in the room. When the child comes back into the room to look for the hidden cards, the rest of the class must tell them if they are "hot" or "cold". (Nearly found it or nowhere near it) "warm" or "cool" (quite near or not very close)
