Verb tenses

Languages

Let the student create a grammatically correct sentence by combining a randomly selected subject, verb, and tense.

Dice

Math

Perform a live probability experiment by repeatedly rolling dice, and recording the results.

Heads or Tails

Math

Perform a live probability experiment by repeatedly tossing a coin, and recording the results.

Make up a story

Languages

Tickle your student's imagination and let them write an inspiring story about a combination of a random everyday object, a person or animal, and a place.

Introduce yourself

Misc

A fun activity to get to know each other at the start of the year. Let a randomly selected student talk about a randomly selected topic.

Multiplication Tables

Math

Learn the multiplication tables by repeating lots of different multiplications. In this example, every number is only listed once, making each of them equally likely to turn up. Make the exercise more challenging by removing the easy numbers 1 and 10, and adding more instances of the numbers 7 and 8 (so they are more likely to come up).
