CHRISTMAS ESL GAME – WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR CHRISTMAS?

In this Christmas ‘Telepathy Game’ students must ‘read the teacher’s mind’ to guess the answer. This game is a lot of fun and a great way to teach Christmas vocabulary and expressions to kids and beginner learners of English as a second or foreign language. 

Expressions include ‘What do you want for Christmas?’ – ‘I want a (skateboard).’ See below for detailed instructions on how to play this fun classroom game.

HOW TO PLAY:

There are 10 rounds. In each round students will see two letters to Santa. Students must choose ONE and write it down (or indicate their answer by raising their hand / moving to one side of the room, etc). To guess the answer, students can use ‘Telepathy’ to read the teacher’s mind. 

PAUSE the video when you see the pause sign to give students time to guess and write down their answer.

Then students will see the present from Santa. If they guessed correctly then they get a point. 

TIP: Students love to pretend that they can read minds. So, to make it more fun, the teacher can pretend to be sending the answer to the students through the power of Telepathy.
