Daily Routine Card Games

Students practise verbal expressions for daily activities.

Level: Primary, Junior_Secondary

After introducing daily activities with pictures, teachers can reinforce the expressions with the games below.

If appropriate for students, a teacher can use the opportunity to raise awareness of grammar by comparing the use of the particles を and に. If you teach these expressions in the plain form, the particle を can be omitted, eg. あさごはんたべる。

Make two sets of picture cards of daily activities and play the following games:

  • Card matching
  • Concentration
  • Snap (Karuta)
  • Lotto
  • Go Fish
