Here are a few activities I use (together with fun visual videos) after we’ve finished all the lessons and reviews:
-Picture games, basically like very short rebus puzzles
-Opposite game, name the opposite
-Numbers game, for example 88 KOAP means 88 keys on a piano. There is a visual hint for each one
-Top Five listing game, general topics
-What is it? close-up/hiddwn pics

Two new sixth grade filler activities, for the last classes before summer break:
-slang and text lingo: this is a combination of a few different things, on the theme of lingo, how people greet each other, some slang terms, text icons/emojis and text lingo. The main activity is for Ss to work out the words of a popular song after I’ve put them though a “texting translator” (old Dave Deubelbeiss activity updated w graphics and songs) There are plenty of songs, but stop about 9 min before end of class to watch the story of Gerald McBoing-Boing (this version I’ve added some subtitles to, but not too much): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33SIj7OsKvA
-Icon game, I don’t remember where the original come from, but I’ve pared it down and made a team-style whiteboard quiz out of it. Teams try to recognise and write down the five names in a category after seeing the “icon” image of each. Categories include people, cities, countries, brands, tv/movies, characters. I’ll bookend this with a couple videos of street/sidewalk art from YT.
