Tower Blaster Game

Standard

Tower Blaster

A game from Sandra.  Good for older students, Levels 3 and 4 (or precocious Level 2s), and those with an affinity for physics.

Sandra says, “It can work (with extra help) with younger students, but it is best with older students who can grasp the game mechanics. They can really get into it! It helps them with their numbers, and orders. I think it’s different from the usual games, so it adds some variety.  I just do the first level with them, and it can take anywhere from 4-10 minutes (depends on the game/students)!”

For those of you who (like me) are slightly traumatised by the numbers and wish to sneak in a bit of history, Murder is Everywhere has a good blog–though it’s at Level 5, so you’ll have to summarise for the students.

 

ESL Games Plus

Awesome new game site for everyone!  (Thanks, Stephanie!)  An easy way to introduce the boring-but-necessary vocabulary.

Crocodile Games would be great for Beginners and Levels 1 and 2.  The games with the light green backgrounds depend on audio (you’ll have to repeat what the game says), and the games with the dark green backgrounds depend on reading. 

The Memory Games are just like the ones on Hangmouse website; best of all, they have a Colours game for those who can’t get the old one to work!

If you have older students at lower levels (or scurvy scalliwags of any age), you can also play Pirate games.

Levels 2 and 3–and maybe even 4–may like the Spelling games

Levels 4 and 5 can beat their heads against the Connector games.

Of course, nothing is perfect: the Crocodile games have annoying background music that I can’t seem to get rid of on my computer.  The Pirate games, though, were nice and silent. 🙂

News In Levels

News In Levels

Christine found this website.  It would be good for Levels 2-5.  The articles are less than 100 words each, and each article comes in three levels.
It’s not “current affairs”, which will make it even more appealing to the students.  🙂

On the left, there’s a link to some dictionaries.  If you’re going for “all English”, I’d recommend the Longman Dictionary.
