Variation 1 - for speaking practice and groups of 10 or less: Scatter lots of flashcards face down on a large table or several small tables pushed together. Use as many flashcards as you like, but you need at least one per student.
Make sure all the chairs are out of the way! Play some fun music and children dance around the table, moving in the same direction. When you stop the music they pick up the card nearest to them and hold it up in the air. Ask them each in turn to say the word they have. They then place the cards back on the table face down and continue to dance around until you stop the music again. Variation 2 - for listening practice and groups of 11 or more: Play the game as in variation 1, except that when you stop the music and the children pick up the card nearest to them, call out one or two of the flashcard words.
The students who have those cards hold them up. Ask them to repeat the word, or use the word in a sentence eg. If none of the children hold up a card check that none of them have it, and say another word. Afterwards they place the cards back on the table face down and continue to dance around until you stop the music again.

However, I would advise you to do this only when the children have a good grasp of the key vocabulary.
It's better to keep it simple at first, particularly with younger children, to ensure that they don't mispronounce the words too much.
