Game and puzzle resources

Custom Artboard 51 • Teacha

Let’s face it, we all love playing games. Yes, they have the potential of turning into World War 3, however, a few well-chosen games will add a new buzz to your classroom, and I mean a good buzz! It is a rare thing to hear children say: “Ah no, do we have to play a game?”  Apart from the obvious fun factor, games hold many benefits for your learners.

Transport Flash cards Isizulu • Teacha

IsiZulu Transport / Izokuthutha SNAP / Flashcards


This resource is made up of 12 transport cards, with three copies of each card. These cards can be used as flashcards or discussion cards where children can compare different types of transport. They can also be used to sort into land, water and air transport. This resource is great for games such as snap or memory. I recommend laminating the cards for durability. Snap: The cards are dealt out evenly to the players in the group. Players should not look at their cards. They should be kept in a pile face down in front of the player. The first player to go, removes the card from the top of their pile and puts it face up in the middle for all players to see. The next player does the same by putting their card on top of the previous player’s card. If the cards are the same, the player to spot it shouts snap. That player then gets all the cards in the middle. The aim of the game is to get all the cards. Memory: Choose 3 sets of matching cards. Place the cards face down. Player one turns over two cards, if they are the same the player gets to keep them. If they are different, the player must turn them over again, placing them in the same place that they were. Player two then gets a turn. This continues until all the cards have been matched. The person with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner. You can make the game more difficult by adding more matching sets to the game. Please note that I do not speak isiZulu and all my isiZulu resources have come together from the work that I do for an N.P.O.(Siyakwazi). I have spent many hours researching and finding words, phrases etc that can assist in creating much needed isiZulu resources.
