Has Got Practice & Numbers

Skill: Speaking
Topic: Numbers
Type: Bubbles

This “has got” activity is designed to encourage your students to familiarize themselves with “has got”, practice numbers, and differentiate between the teens and tens.

How to use this activity?

Put your students into a maximum of four groups. They can complete this Has Got Practice Activity individually, in pairs, or in small groups.

  • The poster has four characters in the corners, assign a character to each group. The groups must then name 7 things their character has by associating a number with the thing. Simple! Then the groups must present their character and what they have. If your students are a bit more advanced, you can ask them why they think their character might have this or that.

For example: Steven has eight tractors. Why? He is a farmer and he has a very big farm!

  • Another way to use this activity is to put your students in 4 groups and have them take turns describing their chosen character by telling the class what they have. This time, the numbers can only be used once! Describe the characters until the class runs out of numbers.
  • Please note: We have chosen the numbers specifically for their difficulty for beginner students. Have them work hard on differentiating the difference between the teens and the tens! Seventeen and Seventy. As for me, I try to get my students to pronounces their tens with a soft /d/ sound rather than a hard /t/ and that seems to make a big difference for them!

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
