**Time-Bomb-Game (is the main activity I usually choose to check my student’s vocabulary knowledge): Take a stop watch, put it on the blackboard and set it to 2 minutes. Decide the student who will start to read the first letter (of the Alphabet letter flashcards) and push the start button of the stop watch. The first student reads the first letter, the second student the next letter and so on. When the alarm of the stop watch rings the student who was next has to stand up and read out loud 10 letters and all students will repeat after him/her. Afterwards I usually give this student a sticker for his\her pointcard.
