How many of you know how to play domino? It’s everybody’s childhood game, I guess. It doesn’t need special skills to play this game as far as I know. What you have to do is match the dots here and there. Well, that’s the simplest way I know. There might be other more advanced ways to play domino out there. What I’d like to share here is applying domino game in class.
Actually, you can use domino to teach any levels and any language target. What I did in class was teaching preference. What I did was teaching some expressions:
I prefer ____ to ____
I like _____ better than ____
I would rather _____ than ______
Make sure you have taught the above pattern before you assign the students to play domino. Oya, there are also some target vocabulary that the students must use from the lesson. Such as: interesting, clumsy, informative, horrible, fantastic, etc.
