Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    Then later you can play the same game with different cards (word cards; I, went, to, the, shop, cafe, home, my , friends, and, we, wanted, to, buy, eat, and, met, pizza, bus station, bus ticket, to, Bangkok, go…..etc) (hat, shoes, green, coat, blue, I, she, he, my friend, wears, is, wearing, and,…..etc) build sentences. When a group runs out of hands (like your teachers did) instead of collapseing the tower call for reinforcements from other groups. If you limit the number of cards correctly then you can avoid (boo, hiss, why deprive them of this motivation?!) students standing on chairs!
