how to play

This flashcard game idea can be adapted to any language concept (in this case, to our Months of the Year topic). The instructions below are just a starting point to inspire you.

  • Give each student a set of flashcards. They put their cards face up (answer side down) in any order.
  • Have them to put their cards in a line in month order. You can give a time limit.
  • When finished, students flip over the game cards to check their work.
  • Now ask questions to reinforce month order. For example, Which month comes before March? Which month comes after September? What is the fifth month of the year? What are the spring months?
