Practice Your Pronouns: Shopping Vocabulary

Use this quick activity around shops and shopping to practice either pronouns or shops around town.

How to use this activity?

Display the activity on your screen for online lessons or project it in the classroom for offline lessons. Have a student read out loud one of the green or purple cards. Give students a time limit (around 60 seconds) to write in the chat, or on a piece of paper, as many replacements for the underlined pronoun as they can. Once time is up, have students share the results with the class. For every logical and original answer, students earn 1 point. Play all the cards and save the red one for last.

NOTE: The green cards are easier than purple cards.

This is the double jeopardy round. Have students bet the points they have accumulated throughout the game before they correct the sentence on the red card. Be sure to hide the writing on this card with something like a colored rectangle on zoom etc. before beginning the activity. 

To go a little further, have your students make up their own riddles for the class. Play the same way as with the PDF.

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!
