Once upon a time, it seemed like this class stretched out before you and your students like a long road - and now, here you are, already at the end. Well, maybe you’re not feeling quite that emotional about it - but even so, the last few classes with your students are an important time. Although many of them probably look like they’re ready to slip out the door already, the end of the year (or the class) is the time to run back over the essentials of the grammar and vocabulary you’ve taught, and do your best to make sure your students remember not just what you worked on toward the end, but at least some of what you’ve addressed throughout the whole class.
That’s a tall order - which is why a lot of teachers just kick back and take it easy for the last few classes. But why quit while you’re ahead? Why not spend the last few classes reviewing what you and your class have worked on, with some fun, light-hearted activities that’ll boost their confidence as they try out their newly-learned English skills. Sounds like a plan, doesn’t it? All that’s left is to figure out which activities to use.
