My key philosophy of teaching English to kids: I don’t care what we are doing or talking about as long as it’s in English. I like to introduce new games into my lessons.  I explain the directions in English as I show them what to do and we play using only English. Games are great because they introduce a limited vocabulary set that is repeated frequently and the child is motivated to participate.

I look for games that are fun to play, are easy to learn, don’t take too long, and easy to replicate in Russia.  Battleship is universal and fun for both kids and adults.  I found a great printable and it comes from a counterpart of mine in the Canary Islands.  Must be a great idea!
