‘Objects’ are a very well-used tag in my blog, but there can never be too many realia in the classroom, right? Even an unglamorous kitchen utensil will shine if you know a few tips and tricks. Read Lana’s post to find out how you can use spoons to practise pronunciation, review vocabulary and organise stirrers. For even more ideas, check this video from the Teaching Channel on how to combine spoons with sticks to encourage student engagement and help with nomination in large groups; also, have a look at this version of the Spoons game by Jennifer Findley which requires some initial learner training, but is infinitely reusable.
