This is such a great activity for consolidation and reinforcement of learning.

Loop cards involves writing a number of incomplete sentences about a topic, for example partnerships or sources of finance. The sentences are then cut out and randomly handed out to students in the class.

I tend to place them in a circle (loop), hence the name. I then start off the loop with the first sentence. At the end of this sentence another student needs to continue that sentence with their loop card and so on and so forth.

For example, I might start off with “A partnership is a business owned….“to which the next student continues with “and controlled by between two….”. The next student would continue with “and twenty people. A benefit of a partnership is….” etc etc. Once the whole activity is complete, I collect the sentences in, jumble them up and start again.

A good thing to try with this is to time each ‘round’ to see if the students get faster. This adds pace to the activity.

What I like about this is that it involves the whole class, develops listening skills and reinforces prior learning. Once you have a number of ‘topics’ developed, you can keep bringing them out throughout the year as a starter. This aids revision throughout the course, which is no bad thing…............
