Today’s post is particularly designed to English teachers. We’re dealing with the use of the famous app “Heads Up!” in the language’s classroom; however, being used in a different way: to enhance the teaching/learning of grammar points. Yes! It’s possible! Teaching grammar can be fun! 😉
To those who had never heard of “Heads Up!”, it is the fun and hilarious game from TV host Ellen DeGeneres. She generally plays it on her show, and you can play it with your family and friends. From naming celebrities, to singing, to silly accents — you have to guess the word on the card that’s placed on your head (it’s going to show on the screen of your mobile device) from your friends’ clues. All before the timer runs out!
It’s quite funny and students, in general, love when you take “Heads Up!” to class. It’s really entertaining.
In the video below, you’re going to see a different way to use “Heads Up!” in your classroom. I’m presenting you with one of the ways that I personally use it with my groups, as previously stated, to work with grammar.
The grammar point here is WISH, and I’ll give you a quick step-by-step of what I do and how you can build your own decks (according to the content you’re teaching) to use them with your students.
