Match Mine: Language Builder Book
Teach vocabulary and communication skills with this cooperative game. Partners sit on opposite sides of a barrier. Each has a game board and game pieces copied from this book. For example, each student receives a zoo game board and zoo animal game pieces. One student places her animals in the empty spots on the zoo game board. Now here's the challenge: Through talking only, that student must describe how she arranged her animals in the zoo so her partner can ?match? the layout. As students try to make a match (?place the zebra in the bottom space that has the tree on the right side?), they must communicate clearly using the target vocabulary. Book includes 30 games focusing on must-know vocabulary including: animals, food, clothes, transportation, weather, sports, human body, and many more. 136 pages.

Smart Card: Second Language Learning
Whether learning English as a Second Language or a World Language, having multiple opportunities to practice the target language allows for increased retention and acquisition. With this Kagan SmartCard you will have some of the best strategies to organize communication for all learners, at all levels of language acquisition. These simple, yet innovative Kagan Structures promote communication and increase language production. In the traditional classroom, students practice language only when called upon to produce language. In the classroom where the teacher uses Kagan Structures, the frequency of student communication and language practice is increased significantly.
