Do you have any games or activities that you've already tried with your groups?

are they large flash cards, or small game cards? a good game is using the cards to play a connect four type of game. each student gets a set of cards, color coordinated is easier for them. they will start with the first row and try to connect four while blocking the opponent.

Another good game is pair the students up, one student places their cards face down, the other places theirs face up. the one with their cards face up wants to turn all of the cards face up, And visa versa. They junken each time, the winner picks a card, says the target English, and flips the card. The first person to have all of the cards flipped, wins.

If you are using large flash cards, and teaching elementary or pre-school. you can lay all of the flashcards scattered out on the floor. Then you sit in the center and count down from five with your eyes closed. the students will run to a card of their choice and stand over it. When you get down to zero with your eyes closed, you call out a flash card. the students standing over that card will join you in the center to repeat. once a new card is said and those students join you in the center, the previous students can go back to the outer circle.

I like to play a game similar to "what time is it Mr. Wolf" but with flash cards. go over the target cards. then have the students stand in line at one end of the room. and try to guess which one of the flash cards you chose, by saying the target sentence. if the guess wrong, they have to take one BIG step forward. once they guess right, they have to race back to the wall without being touched. If they are touched, they join you as being the "ONI."
