Seats with words


Here is a great fresh post by Cristina Cabal about using collocations or definitions to assign seats to students. While the version with taping parts of collocations to chairs seems a bit too much work, it may be worth it at the start of the year, when you need everyone to meet everyone, or when you use this for extensive vocabulary practice. I heard about a simpler version from a colleague: every class starts with the same routine, when the kids get a word or a definition and have to find their new partner and sit together. Really helps when those girls refuse to work with the boys, or vice versa!

P.S. Do we really have to change the learners’ seating? Oh yes.
