Classroom posters - Food

Who's hungry? Use our food poster to help you present, practise, recycle and build on language related to food.

Download the poster and teacher's notes below.

The teacher's notes have lots of ideas to use this poster in class to: 

  • present new vocabulary and practise pronunciation
  • practise vocabulary through games
  • recycle vocabulary with categories
  • build on vocabulary with functional language and grammar practice.

Games to practise new vocabulary include:

Write the words you want to practise on the board. Ask one student to come to the front and point to an item on the poster and ask another student to find the correct word on the board. Ask the class if this is the correct word. Can the class pronounce the word correctly?

Play ‘I went to the shop and I bought …’. Start by saying, ‘I went to the shop and  bought some rice.’ The next person has to repeat your sentence and add an item, for example: ‘I went to the shop and I bought some rice and a pizza.’ Continue around the class until someone makes a mistake. You could prompt students to use ‘a’/‘an’/‘some’ as appropriate.
