Card Game Activity: Go Fish!

Hello, everyone! My name’s Cris. My name is Ana. And this is Great Ideas for Teachers and Students Subtitles are available in English and Portuguese. Subtitles are available in English and Portuguese. On today’s video we’re gonna teach you a card games you can play with your students.

Here’s an idea for you to review vocabulary and the simple present. For this game you’ll need a deck of cards. Let’s review the vocabulary for cards first, shall we?

This is a deck of cards. There are four suits: spades, diamonds, hearts and clubs. There are 13 cards in each suit. We have 9 number cards And there are 4 special cards: the ace, A, the jack, J, the queen, Q, and the king, K. There’s also a very special card: the joker. For this game, we don’t need the joker, so discard it. The name of the game is Go Fish.

The objective of the game is to make a group of four equal cards. So the students ask each other if they have a card. So for example, they say, do you have a 2?

If thestudent has the card, he has to give the first student the card. If he or she doesn’t have the card, he or she says, Go Fish! If the student makes the group of 4 equal cards, he lays down the cards. The winner isthe student who has the biggest number of groups of four cards.

The game ends when one of the students doesn’t have any more cards in his or her ends or when theteacher interrupts the game. Let’s demonstrate! Pedro, you’re the dealer. Please shuffle the cards. Okay OK, now deal 8 cards to each player.

Ooh, my cards are good. okay Ana, you start Pedro, do you have a queen? No, go fish. No, I don’t. Go fish.

No, I don’t. Go fish. Cris, do you have an 8? No, I don’t.

Go fish. Ana. Do you have a king? No, I don’t. Go fish. For more card games, navigate to this website.

Ana, do you have an 8? It’s my turn! oh Pedro, do you have a jack? No, I don’t. Go fish.

Ana, do you have an 8? No, I don’t. Go fish. Pedro, do you have a king? No, I don’t. Go fish.

Ana, your turn Pedro, do you have a 6? No, I don’t. Go fish.

Pedro, do you have a 7? No, I don’t. Go fish. Pedro, do you have a 6? No, I don’t. Go fish.

Ana, do you have an 8? Yes, here you are. okay I won! You can use a regular deck of cards or you can make your own deck to review any vocabulary you want. For example, with this deck of cards you can review the letters of the alphabet. Or with this one you can review animals.

While students are playing the game, they internalize the structure of the simple present, for example, do you have, and the answers, yes, I do, no, I don’t. Because they are entertained, and their objective is to win the game, they’re not paying attention to thestructure, so they really automatize the structure. They learn while they are playing and having fun. Well, we hope you have enjoyed playing cards with us. If you like this video, please hit the like button. And subscribe by hitting the red button.

Betting, WCG and ProTips: The eSports Show

Good afternoon, good evening or good morning depending on where in the world you are watching. It’s time for baking, scalding and steaks… err, I mean streaks. I’m Luke “Dorjan” Kneller and this is the International eSports show. LemmingBake, OdemJam, Liberty Egg; League of Liberty team 1 and 2 were both disqualified from competing in the Russian Wargaming League’s season 3 finals for match fixing.

The information passed from the bookies shows that a few players from LOL Team 1 and 2 betted against themselves. Not surprisingly; they lost these matches… Four players from League of Liberty Team 1, including TpTp and Captain Streko and BYRANTINO from League of Liberty Team 2 are now banned from all Wargaming Leagues and events for the next two seasons. LOL Team 1 is moved to the Silver League and cannot be promoted for Season 4 plus they lose 75% of their winnings amounting to 1312 US dollars and LOL Team 2 loses the right to participate in the season 3 finals but gets to stay in the Golden League and lose 25% of their earnings amounting to 350 dollars. This completely ruins LOL Team 1’s chances of getting to the grand finals even though they were one of the favorites.

Lesson to learn from this? Betting is all good and fun if done sensibly but don’t bet against yourself; ever. Virtus-cake, Nod-pie, Olive-Ace Continuing the bad news; CEO of World Cyber Games Inc., Brad Lee, has announced that they have lost their sponsor and have therefore cancelled all future tournaments. WCG began in 2000 as the “World Cyber Game Challenge” sponsored by the Korean Ministry of Culture and Tourism and a high profile electronics company.

But after 14 years of successful competitions, things come to a close. Mr Lee makes clear that the brand name ‘WCG’ is still available for use, so there’s a silver lining to all this. PandaFace, Na`vi Tank, Syner-snack Some teams like hiding in Go4WoT; one such example is Virtus.Pro who renamed to Wild Boars just for this. Other teams, like DeNova have renamed to one of their sponsors instead.

So look closely when competing in Go4WoT and A-Series… you never know when a wild pro-team might appear. Also in A-Series; Freefall has at last been defeated by the LemmingTrain’s Super Pazie in a very tight match bringing their winning streak to an end at a total of 13, a record I don’t think anyone can break this season as it finishes in two weeks. Challenge accepted; next season of A-Series let’s see if we can get a higher streak as a collective community, OK? On that note I’ll wrap things up for today.

Let me know in the comments what is your longest win streak in A-Series or Team Battle mode; and don’t forget to leave your region at the same time. For this week’s ProTip we have the Comix from Team Efficiency from the Asian Region give you general team structure and game tips. See you next week. Hello everyone, I’m comix from Team Efficiency here to talk about general tips for Team Battles.

The DPS tournament teams came together to make a guide for the 7/42 battle format; brought to you by Deathskyz, Grivyn and myself. It’s linked in the description, but let me go over the main points The first thing to do with your 7 players is to split them into 3 groups: The Captain, otherwise known as the Battle Caller or FC, has the final say and commands the team during the battle. It is important that this person has the final say during battles as it’s too easy to get locked down in debates, the time for that is after the battle The second group are your main tier 8 players. They are the ones who must know what the Battle Caller expects from them. Initiative is the keyword here; every player must understand that the Caller is unable to see everything and each player must have the ability to be proactive and cooperate with their team. The last role assigned to your remaining players is the role of the T1 driver; Never underestimate the power of a Tier 1.

The tier 1’s are the eyes and early warning system of the team. They can even turn the tide of a battle by damaging or even killing enemy T8s from the side or rear. Let me give you some rules of thumb for Team Battles: First; always do a comms check to ensure everyone can hear and respond clearly Second; do not ever underestimate the enemy as this maybe your biggest downfall. Always treat the opposing team with respect; do not ever humiliate them no matter how bad they played against you. Learn the proper times to suggest ideas to the Battle Caller.

Every member of the team is important, regardless of their role. Learn what equipment and crew setup suits your tank and role you are going to be playing. Location, location, location.

Know where the enemy is before advancing or risk charging straight into an ambush. And lastly; some things to avoid during a Team Battle: Do not overcall your Battle Commander. Ensure clear battle comms as multiple people shouting does not help at all. Avoid scolding in the heat of battle, save it for the debriefing.

A stressed player does not get calmer with someone shouting in their headset. Remember this; Don’t give up. No matter how badly you were beaten by the enemy team, remember that all teams lose. Never stop learning. Be Humble in both victory and defeat.

Trust your team and they will trust you. I am Comix from Team Efficiency, good luck on the battlefield..

Winning Slot Strategies – How To Play Smart At Online Casinos

Betting strategies are the act of betting in a certain way to increase your chances of success. There have been many techniques invented for casino games, such as the martingale system in roulette. But for now, we’re looking at slots, particularly the online variety. Seemingly much more random than other casino games. Is it possible to bet smart when it comes to online slots.

Firstly, let’s get all the myths out of the way. Betting higher is always better This doesn’t make any sense because you would either lose or gain money at the same rate. It’s good if you win money quickly, therefore counteracting your original bigger risk, but in the end it does nothing to improve your winnings. Bet amount should be decided by your bankroll and so smaller bets might let you play for longer!

Selecting certain paylines. All paylines have an equal chance of hitting. Betting strategies will often tell you to only bet on horizontal lines because they’re more likely to have something across them, but it’s rubbish. Symbols will appear randomly across reels, so there’s nothing to make them line up horizontally. It’s a complete misunderstanding of how slots work. Don’t listen to it.

Hot and cold slots. As soon as you hit the spin button, the outcome of the slot is decided. That spinning animation you see is simply a random number generator picking which symbols to show. There’s no pattern or routine to when symbols come up, it’s random every single time. Because of this, every spin has the same odds of winning or losing. You can’t wait around for a slot to pay out better. Hot and cold might be true of fruit machines in pubs, but online, it works very differently. So the options for betting smart are limited. But there are a few things you can do.

Find a slot with a high RTP, that’s the return to player rate. It’s your only insight into how much a slot will pay out. The higher the RTP the more you’ll get back. The RTP will always be below 100% meaning if you play long enough you will always lose overall. A slot with a 98% RTP is high, but on average over a long enough period you will lose 2 of every £100 you wager. Knowing that is a good way to choose when you should stop spinning.

Once you get ahead, get out. If you get a great spin early, then you might want to stop playing if you want that money to stay around. Another thing you can do is play simpler slots, with less variables, like fewer bonus rounds. This not only makes it easier to understand what’s going on, but it also means that your spins will be less diluted. A slot packed with symbols that have loads of different effects, makes hitting one of those effects less likely, with so many other features cramming for slot space. Some would argue more bonus rounds are better for making more money, but since their appearance is tied to the RTP, more bonus rounds isn’t necessarily a gain. Bonus rounds are usually where you win big jackpots, so their presence can’t hurt, but remember their payouts are still based on that RTP.

Based on Casinoslots experience, sometimes, you won’t make back the money you lost while getting to them. So remember, you have to learn the rules and your chances of winning. You shouldn’t hang in there waiting for you luck to turn. Choose your slot wisely, bet comfortably and get out while you’re ahead. Sometimes though it’s worth throwing it all out of the window; set your bankroll and get spinning on whichever games you enjoy. See where your luck can take you!
