Fun and Exciting No Prep Teaching Games for Any Subject

Use these games to review and practice grammar, vocabulary, listening, speaking and even phonics. The content is up to you!
These class games are easy to use and can be played without any preparation. They don't need to be installed and don't require an internet connection to use. You can simply start the game and follow the on screen instructions to play.
Games themselves have no content and you can use them over and over when teaching different topics.
If you want more control, you can also add your own questions, keywords, and even use your own pictures to play.
These fun games can be played in a real classroom or when teaching online.

Practice and Review Any Content with Four Question Prompts
Each game includes four different question prompts.
Prompt 1: No prompt: Simply ask a question to your students without the use of a prompt. You don't need to prepare anything ahead of time when playing with this prompt.
Prompt 2: Questions Display: You can prepare text questions ahead of time and use this prompt to display them when you play. The answer and question will be displayed. You can prepare more than 30 different questions ahead of time simply by editing a text file.
Prompt 3: Picture Prompt: Display pictures related to your content and ask questions based on them.
Prompt 4: Keywords: Display up to 16 different keywords related to your content at a time. Ask any question you'd like using the keywords displayed.
When playing, you can FREELY SWITCH BETWEEN PROMPTS AT WILL and use a variety of question types in a single game. The teacher is always in control when playing games from Happy Everyday English.

After answering a question, students stop the spinner and their monkey climbs up the tree...or they may be able to drop a coconut on another team's monkey!
Why I Develop These Games
When I started teaching more than a dozen years ago, I found most interactive white board games and software to be lacking, limited, or too cost prohibitive for a new teacher like me to afford.
It was then that I set out to develop high quality interactive no prep ESL games that teachers under any budget could afford.
I had a few goals that I set out to reach when developing these games. Thus, all games that I develop:
no preparation time required
are easy to use, fun, and interesting
are usable with any topic and content
give complete control to the teachers
are more powerful than PPT or Notebook made games and software
require no installation to use
require no internet connection to use
are inspired by the sort of things that children love
