What will my ESL young learners learn?
There are several variations so you can easily differentiate the skills practice. Choose the word to word or word to picture options if you want to practise literacy skills, or choose the picture to picture options for children who aren’t reading yet.
The ‘make your own’ dominoes sets allow you to provide even more practice as they make their own copies of the dominoes to take home and play.
Depending on how you conduct the activity, your students also get plenty of practise of their listening and speaking skills.
Don’t forget the valuable classroom language you’ll be helping them learn. See a summary below:
