Target Language

VOCABTIVATE: School is a collection of 4 activities focused on SCHOOL and EDUCATION related vocabulary, grammar and functional language.



Each activity is graded individually, but all activities are meant for A2-B1 students.
However, they can be used for more advanced learners, too!



A printable PDF with the following 4 activities:

Teacher’s pet: Take a trip down memory lane with your students and their time in grade school and high school. What kind of students were they? Did they get in trouble a lot or were they the teacher’s pet? Find out together while discovering and reviewing useful vocabulary.

Shattering clichés: Practice writing and review expressions of opinions while opening up debates and discussions in the classroom. Which of these clichés can your students shatter? Which do they think are true?

Adulting boot camp: This task-based activity gets students to organize an adulting boot camp for highschoolers. Group work gets your students talking and the activity guides them along.

Homeschooled: Another task-based activity that involves critical thinking and reading comprehension. Organize a homeschool curriculum in small groups or as a class for imaginary families.

    Great resource! I use it with my private students as well as groups. It’s a great way to practice oral expression, but also writing skills.
