Make the reading activity more fun. After the students guess each word, you can make it more challenging by asking them to use the word in a sentence.

A little late, but here's my contribution adapted from "101 Games & Activities for Primary English."


Not late at all. Many schools - mine included - are starting lesson 9 this week.
Thanks.

With so many buttons, I'm a bit lost as to how the speed quiz is supposed to work.

the different buttons make different noises but mostly you will just use "correct" and "pass" if you downloaded it onto a mac then the hyperlinks wont work

The 'here you are' game...with the pictures on the bulletin board....how exactly is this game played.  i get what the students are suppose to say.  But some of the links to the other slides are off and I'm not sure if I'm suppose to click back on the number postit we were just on or just pick one at random.  Whne i pick one at random (like post it note 3) it sends me to the end of the ppt.  I really appreciate this though.  I have to condense all the periods into once a week classes so it's nice to find maretials that can cover everything.

So to play..

1. Team decides on a channel, each channel is a different set of words
2. The students use the vocab somehow (May I use your pencil case?)
3. If they're right, press correct otherwise click pass
4. Repeat until you get to the end?

Are they supposed to get 30 seconds in total or per word?

Here are 2 more powerpoints and a board game.  One is the pass the ball game (the one with the korean name that is completely in Korean).

Hope these are useful!

My CT wants our students to focus on using the phrases: "May I use your____? Can I read your book?" etc. With the response of "Sure, Here you are."


I found this game at Dave's ESL Cafe and hope to offer it to my CT as a replacement activity for lesson 4.9.

1. Split the class into teams. If they are in columns of desks, saying the left hand column is team 1, the next team 2, etc. is usually best.
2. On the board draw limbless, featureless faces and bodies (the number you draw should correspond with the number of groups you have)
3. Tell the front person in each group to stand up.
4. You then ask the kids who are standing up a question. The quickest one to raise their hand can answer, if they're correct, they get to roll an inflatable dice (I actually made a big dice out of cardboard)
5. If they get a "1" they can draw an eye on their team's face. If they have a "2" they can draw an ear. Similarly, "3" is a nose, "4" is a mouth, "5" is an arm and "6" is a leg.
6. However, each team can only have one nose, one mouth, and two each of everything else. For example, if your team already has 2 arms, and you roll another number "5" then that go is a "pass" because you can't add another arm (this gives an added competitive bit to the game, complete with praying, clapping and cheering!)
7. The next person in each group stands up and repeats from step 4,
8. The winning team is the first team to get 2 eyes, 2 ears, 1 nose, 1 mouth, 2 arms and 2 legs. If you run out of time then the team with the most features is the winner!

Instead of having each team send up one represenatative, I will request they come in partners. I will either create a PPT or use classroom flashcards for the word that fits the blank. So, Ss will see a 'pencil case' and one partner will say: May I use your pencil case? Partner responds "Sure, here you are." One rolls the dice - other draws corresponding body part and viola!

If CT doesn't want it -- I'll save this ESL cafe idea for another time - regardless, hopefully it's helpful some someone out there!

Play go fish with the picture and word cards in the book. 

Mix all of the students cards, small groups (max5)
deal 5 or 7 cards depending on time and amount of students
Have the students put down the word cards that match the picture cards
Play go fish using the dialog "can I use______" Can I read _______ and Can I have________
if the student has a matching card they say sure, "here you are!" and give the student the card
If the student does not have a matching card they say "Sorry you cant" and the student picks from the middle cards.

The lesson is about "May I ___?" rather than "Can I ___?" I think that's a good thing as "Can I go to the bathroom?" is a ridiculous question. The correct answer to that is something along the lines of "Well, I assume you're toilet trained."


You could keep it focused on "May I___?" and play Go Fish. Be warned however, Go Fish eats time up like few other games. Be aware of that before you play it and maybe tell them that they have x minutes to play as otherwise games can easily last 20+ minutes.

I disagree. Use of "can" regarding permission is very common, and it's in the OED. English is defined by common usage; and "may I..." is not in common usage. Long-term, I think it compromises a student's English to teach them old or overly-formal structures like this.
But this is the same book that thinks they'll find the question "whose boat is this?" useful ^_^

"Mother May I" Game

 One person is chosen as the “mother” (or “captain” if it is a male).  She or he stands facing away from a line of kids and selects a child at random, or in order.  The mother/captain calls out a direction, step type, and number of steps.  For example, the mother/captain can say: “Scott, you may take seven (or any other number)’ baby/normal/giant steps forward/backward.” The child then responds with “Mother may I?” (or “Captain may I?” if it is a male player in charge).  The mother/captain states “Yes” or “No”, depending on her whim, and the child obeys and takes the steps.  If the child forgets to ask “Mother may I?” then he/she goes back to the beginning of the line.  The first one to touch the Mother/Captain wins and becomes the new Mother/Captain.

First post wooo! Here's a great youtube for the lesson!  Bill Deal & the Rhondels - May I

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSUrF_MCHTE

May I! may I!
May I, may I
May I be your boy
May I speak with you
May I bring you joy
Girl I've been searching
May I, may I, may I, may I
Touch your hand in mine
Such a thrill divine
Girl I've been searching for someone like you
Well I've said everything that I can say
Done everything that I can do
For you girl
Yes I have
So in love with you
May I, may I, may I, may I
Touch your hand in mine
Such a thrill divine

Here you are: Game

Students all put one item into a bag.  You and your co-teacher then distribute the items onto the other groups’ tables.  Get the students, one by one, to go search for their item.  When they get to the group that has their item, the group has to ask “May I help you?”  and the student has to reply “Yes please, where is my pencil/ruler/bag etc?”  The group then replies “here you are.”  And the student says “Thank you.”

Here is a ppt I made to go with this. I am going to try it in class tomorrow. I could only come up with 16 questions, so you may want to add more if you are going to play this for a longer amount of time.
