This book provides easy-to-use resources to help you write fun lesson plans. With over 100 activities and games, this book also includes rubrics, spreadsheets, materials lists, and templates. this book can be very helpful for keeping students learning actively while teacher works with an individual or group of students, for energizers to start up the day, or to break up the day when students are obviously overwhelmed and need to process some of what they've learned. The strategies of this book use language creatively and actively, to help make the learning experience more fun and the language easier to internalize. Most of the games come complete with templates for quick recreation, and most of the activities require materials that are commonly available in your classroom resources.

Some of my favorites were the "self-portrait," which combines description, listening comprehension and writing, and the basic "ball toss," which is great for kinesthetic learners and has multiple adaptations. I also appreciate that at the beginning of each section, Buttner breaks down each activity based on what skills it uses--i.e., vocabulary, grammar, content, culture, and oral and written language
