    As the newest teacher where I’m currently working, I have become (by default) the "go-to" guy for assisting other teachers who are Chinese speakers. Many classes have primary students. The teachers who conduct these classes have asked me for help with "in class" word games they can use. I have searched on-line for links and seem to only find non-printable material–at least for the good games that would be successful in-class. Does anyone have some word games in their folder they can spare for PRIMARY kids–at low english level?? Even links would be helpful. Google.hk blocks some stuff which make it more frustrating to search. The more you can spare, the better. Any help is greatly appreciated as soon as you have time to post. Thank you.

    BTW, if you are in U.S. my school may be (thats the rumor) looking to hire another native speaking English teacher early next year. Not sure what level.

    What level of games are you after? And practicing what?

    I believe grammar & vocab would be the desired game forms–age/grade would be about 6 to 7 (as far as I know since I’m doing this for other teachers). But they are at primary level. They already know "hangman" and "hot-seat". Although I’ve introduced "Mad-Libs" which I think would be absolutely histerical for the class, though I’m not sure the kids know about nouns, or adjectives. Teacher(s) told me she is looking for something that involves entire class at teachers direction, and not something involving teams/groups, or printing out massive sheets of paper–as I’ve found from other sites. I’ve also looked for a good "build-a-sentence" printable, but only find on-line versions so far. But hopefully I like to find something the kids learn from or reinforces a previous lesson. I should also mention that this is China. Some kids have low-level english ability and may be lost–thus the reason for not attempting groups/teams. I appoligize if I have confused you or sounded too vague. I’m new to the school, so the native chinese teachers are looking to me for guidence–as a native English speaking teacher. I also ask because I have no clue on how to conduct a primary-level class.
