Resources and materials for ESL Kids teachers

Get Dressed! This is a game that I used with my primary school children who have just started learning English:

  1. Split the class into 2 or 3 teams.
  2. On the board write teams 1, 2 and 3 plus the names of the team members.
  3. Each team needs to designate who they are going to dress.
  4. Write items of clothing (between 4 and 6 items) under each group.
  5. Tell the children that the first team to dress their person is the winner. Tell them to 'get ready', count down and then empty a bin bag of clothes on the floor.

The kids loved this game. Even the 2 children who wanted to sit out and watch were screeching with laughter. To add a bit more fun, if the team has chosen to dress a boy in their group I add 'dress' or 'skirt' to their list. (Submitted by G Holwill)
