Thanks to dessa for putting up "Bob's Week" which I used as a handout, along with the "I never go to Work" fill-in-the-blanks.My students, used to wordsearches, had some problem with the word maze, and so I made this Powerpoint which guides them through the drawing. They tend to get right to work once a piece of paper is in their hands, so prior to the exercise, to give them a sense of the narrative, this powerpoint begins with the story of Bob. I had students take turns and read it in turn, with each new reader repeating the text leading up to the new verb. To help them connect the meaning with the words, I've added animated .gif's to reinforce the meaning. The maze draws itself with only a few clicks.
Practice with days, classes, key sentence and then the minesweeper game.
Here is a speed mime game for Lesson 2. Let the students view and practice the PPT first.1. Divide the students into teams.2. Give each team member a number.3. Let number 1 face the TV screen and the rest of the team have their backs to the TV. They should be about 5 metres away. Start to time the team and the first student looks at the picture and mimes the class/practice. When the team has guessed correctly the 1st student re-joins the team and the 2nd student replaces the 1st and mimes the next picture and so on.4. Give each team 2 minutes and count the number of correct guesses. The team may choose to 'pass' if they cannot guess. The team that has the most correct guesses in 2 minutes is the winning team.5. For each team you have, scramble the slides by dragging them to a new location. So, for example if you have three teams make 3 copies of the PPT and scramble the order of the slides.Hope this works okay, please give me feedback and comments if you use this PPT.
