Checker Board Games

PhonicsConsonantLettersmnqrvxPhotoChecke

Photo Checkerboard Game-ESL Fun Games

How to Play It:

Play checkers with two people and a board consisting of 64 squares. The board alternates between 32 black and 32 red squares.

Each player begins the game with 12 colored discs. Players place their pieces on the 12 black squares closest to them.

Black moves first. Players then alternate moves. Players can only move on the black squares, so pieces always move diagonally. Single pieces are always limited to forward moves (toward the opponent). A piece making a non-capturing move (not involving a jump) may move only one square. A piece making a capturing move (a jump) leaps over one of the opponent's pieces, landing in a straight diagonal line on the other side.

Only one piece may be captured in a single jump; however, multiple jumps are allowed on a single turn. When a piece is captured, it must be removed from the board. If a player is able to make a capture, there is no option, the jump must be made. If more than one capture is available, the player is free to choose whichever he or she prefers.

When a piece reaches the furthest row from the player who controls that piece, it is crowned and becomes a king. One of the pieces which had been captured is placed on top of the king so that it is twice as high as a single piece. Kings are limited to moving diagonally but may move both forward and backward. Kings may combine jumps in several directions, forward and backward, on the same turn.

Single pieces may shift direction diagonally during a multiple capture turn, but must always jump forward (toward the opponent).

How to Score It:

A player wins the game when the opponent cannot make a move. In most cases, this is because all of the opponent's pieces have been captured, but it could also be because all of his pieces are blocked in.

With all English checkerboard moves, students will fill in the blanks, use photos or written prompts to use the target language. If students give the correct answer they can remain on their spot until their next turn. If students give the incorrect answer they must go back to their previous spot and wait until their next turn to try again.

Notes:

Each game includes a checkers cut up sheet.

All checker board games must be printed on legal size paper.

Answer Key Included.

Sinking Ships Board Games

PhonicsConsonantLettershhwwzhzySinkingSh

Sinking Ships Game-ESL Fun Games!

How to Play It:

Sinking Ships is a game for two players.   Players try to guess the location of five ships their opponent has hidden on a grid.

Players take turns calling out a row and column, attempting to name a square containing their opponent's ships.  The goal is to sink all of your opponent's ships by correctly guessing their location.

Each player gets a game sheet with two grids and five ships.  There is one 5-length ship, one 4-length ship, two 3-length ships, and one 2-length ship.    Students secretly place their ships on the lower grid.  Each ship must be placed horizontally or vertically (not diagonally) across grid spaces.  Ships must not hang over the grid.  Ships can touch each other but can't be in the same space.

Players take turns firing a shot to attack enemy ships.  On a turn, students will call out a letter and a number of a row and column on the grid. Their opponent checks that space on their lower grid and says miss if there are no ships there, or hit if they guessed a space that contained a ship.

How to Score It:

If a student "hits" an opponent's ship, their opponent must say a target language word or a sentence that is represented by the photo on the space that they land on.   If the student doesn’t succeed he/she must take the hit. If the student is correct his/her ship is safe for that turn. His/her opponent must try to get a correct answer on a future turn. Try having students write the word for an extra challenge.

When a ship is hit, students will put a checkmark on that ship on their lower grid at the location of the hit. Whenever a ship has all of its length spaces checked off they must announce to their opponent that he/she has sunk their ship.  Students will mark their guesses on their upper grid, with an “X” for misses and a checkmark for hits, to keep track. The first player to sink all of their opponent's ships wins. 

Notes:

The ships are included on page 2.

An answer key and instructions are included on page 3.

All Sinking Ships board games are formatted to be printed on legal size paper. However, you can use

a pdf editor to take a snapshot of the game, paste it into a clean word document, and then stretch or

shrink it to any size you want.

If you laminate the game, a dry erase or non-permanent marker can be used to put x’s and checkmarks. This will enable the game to be reused as often as you wish.

Slides and Stairs Board Games

PhonicsConsonantLettersbckcsdgjPhotoChut

Slides and Stairs Game-ESL Fun Games!

How to Play It:

You play Slides and Stairs like a regular board game except students begin at the bottom of the game and move upwards.

If a student lands on a space with a set of stairs they may climb up to the space where the stairs end. If they land on a slide they must slide down to the space where the slide ends.

As students move around the board they will say a target language word or a sentence that is represented by the photos on the spaces that they land on.

How to Score It:

If students give the correct answer they can remain on their spot until their next turn. If students give the incorrect answer they must go back to their previous spot and wait until their next turn to try again. Have students spell the words for an extra challenge! Note: Incorrect answers do not count with stairs.

Notes:

Paper markers and dice patterns are included on page 2.

An answer key and instructions are included on page 3.

All slides and stairs board games are formatted to be printed on legal size paper. However, you can use a pdf editor to take a snapshot of the game, paste it into a clean word document, and then stretch or shrink it to any size you want.

Tic-Tac-Toe or Bingo Card Games

PhonicsConsonantLettersfsklptPhotoTicTac

Photo Tic-Tac-Toe-Bingo Game-ESL Fun Games

How to Play It:

The teacher will hand out all of the other cards to the students. The teacher will read the information in the squares without the answers.

Students will search to see if they have the information square the teacher read. Students must then fill in the missing information, use the prompts to write a sentence or write the name of the item in the square. If students have the square and complete the information correctly, then the square belongs to them or they own the square.

How to Score It:

If you play tic-tac-toe the students must own 3 consecutive spaces, up and down, across or diagonally. The first student that does so wins the game.

If you play bingo you can instruct students to take ownership of the squares in a “U” shape, a “T” shape, a square or have them do a “blackout” in which they must own all of the squares on the card in order to win the game.

 

Notes:

Each game includes 4 pages with 4 cards on each page.

Every card has the information on a different spot.

The teacher will use page 1 for an answer sheet.
