Shiritori game in ESL class


Shiritori is a Japanese word game in which the players are required to say a word which begins with the final kana of the previous word. I’ve modified this into English version where the word is determined by the last alphabet of the previous word. For example: ape, elephant, tiger, rabbit.

This is a good way to revise on the topics that have been taught or simple a fun game to play as a reward for their good work.

The children had a lot of fun playing it. This one is produced by my S4 students in the beginner’s class. 1 point is given to each correct picture and additional 1 point for each correct spelling.
