Scavenger hunt fun with Pingu

 

 

 

An indoor scavenger hunt or house hunt is great fun to do in the home.

They are easy to set up, adaptable and can use whatever items you have around the house.  A scavenger hunt will develop a range of skills in a fun, relaxed, and natural way. And if you can play scavenger hunts in teams at home, they will also encourage teamwork and problem solving. And good for parents, a scavenger hunt can last for quite a long time!

Prepare a list of items for your children to find around the home. To make the game more competitive you can set a timer to see how quickly your child can find the items. To practise their English skills be sure to include numbers, color and nouns, depending upon their ability.

 

 

 

For example,  ask them to find one green scarf or brown shoe, two black socks, find something beautiful, find a white envelope, find something shiny or a sparkly bag.

Or you could introduce shapes and have a scavenger hunt to find something circular, triangular shaped and square.

Why not have a colour themed scavenger hunt? Ask your child to find something from all the colours of the rainbow. Or a pirate or superhero version! If you have a garden you can do one there, with items you might find in the garden. The options are endless and such fun to watch as they run round the house finding the items.

When they return with the item they have found, help them sound or spell out the word. And remember to praise them for their efforts!

When the game is finished, do remember to get them to help put the items away too.

You can download this activity here. And do post pictures on our global Facebook page of what items your child has found around the house during their scavenger hunt.

Testimonials

We at the British Chamber of Commerce worked with Linguaphone Group to find them a new in-market partner for the Korean market. Throughout the engagement we had with Linguaphone Group, we found them to be passionate about education, supremely professional in their approach to business and both responsive and personable in their interactions with ourselves and Korean partners. Korean investors were attracted to the best-in-class program which Linguaphone Group offers, the strong reputation of the company and the heritage with which it is associated. These are qualities that resonate globally.

Our Experience with Pingu’s English has been profitable and positive from the first year. We relied on their professionalism and heritage, their staff is always prompt to assist with the latest trends and ideas on the market. We were looking for a brand who can guarantee us quality and a solid method but at the same time would leave us the freedom and flexibility in order to succeed in our challenging and competitive market like the Italian one. We built Pingu’s English project in Italy by mixing their huge international experience in the English training with our knowledge of the Italian market. All this enabled us to do the right decision for our winning investment. Today we have over 40 Pingu’s English centres and thousands of happy children learning English.

I knew about Pingu’s English School through a friend. After research about the school, I decided to enroll my daughter and it was one of the best things I could do to her. She loves studying at Pingu’s English and she cannot wait to the day of the class. I also love Pingu's English School, because there she learns by playing and I can see her progress day by day.

Now she is studying at Pingu’s English School, my daughter only wants to talk to me in English and she is always singing the songs.

Cristiane Doimo

Pingu's English Student's mother /Brazil

Regarding the teaching method they use a figurative storytelling way of starting the lesson,  trying hard to involve the child and make the them curious about the situation. Tom is very happy to go to Pingu’s English because he perceives the School as a playful moment and not just as a learning moment while at the same time he is learning a new language
