My Korean kindergarten students LOVE Angry Birds! Each day they bring in Angry Birds backpacks, badges, lunchboxes, pencils, toys… They hardly had any prior English knowledge but they could all recognize and say Angry Birds!
One day I was cleaning the board, narrating what I was doing, when one student heard the word ‘board’ and shouted out ‘Angry Board!’ One thing led to another, and we ended up spending a good 10 minutes listing ‘angry’ things. Angry Caterpillar! Angry Dog! Angry Teacher! The students loved this, and the joke kept going for days.
This really easy lesson requires no preparation, but if you want to make it a bit more structured, you can print phone and tablet templates so that the students have something attractive to take home.

Ideas for using the resources below to increase vocabulary and basic word order.
If you want to teach animal vocabulary, flashcards are useful. I love the animal resources from Twinkl!
If you want to teach emotions vocabulary, try these emotion words cards from Twinkl.
Just for fun, you can find a bunch of Angry Birds coloring pages here.
And finally, I wouldn’t do this in my classroom, but….Angry Birds water balloon game!
