Using arithmetic to practice counting/numbers in the ESL classroom

Here's another way to practice numbers. Here we're using simple arithmetic to practice numbers. To play you can divide the class into teams or groups and give one person from each team a problem to solve. Make sure that the numbers suit their level. For example, you could say, "What is 25 + 23?". You can give the winner a +1 for their team.

"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
