"Spelling Bee I" is a spelling activity that works well with large ESL classes

This is a fun spelling activity that works well with large classes. It involves lining your students up and giving them a word to spell. Often any activity that involves this can work well with large classes. To do this spelling activity:

  • Create two lines of students facing the board.
  • You'll operate one line by standing in the front and have your co-teacher or pick a higher level student to operate the other.
  • Give the first one in line a word from your lesson to spell.
  • If he or she spells it correctly give their team a point.
  • Then they go to the back of the line.
  • Give the next student a word to spell.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
