Hi all -

Here is my lesson for grade 3, chapter 1, dialogue 1.

As you can see, it's all about hobbies. I go through the dialogue and give a brief explanation of things you "like" doing, "enjoy" doing, and "love" doing. I go through some of my own hobbies. I explain that your weekend hobbies (when you have more time) may be different than weekday hobbies (when you don't).

The bulk of the lesson is a student-driven activity where they write down several of their own hobbies, then find other students in the class who have the same ones and write their names down. Then one student at a time shares their hobby and tells us who has the same ones.

Then they get to choose the next student to present. I find they have an uncanny knack for finding the student who needs the most practice/is paying the least attention/is asleep/etc.

Do note that my name is on slide 15 and there is a picture of me on slide 16, so if you're downloading this at the last minute (we've all done it), be ready for that. Otherwise it should be good out of the box.

No difference between PPT and PPTX, but I know not everybody can open PPTX.

Enjoy!

I found a great worksheet for students to connect pictures of hobbies to their names. Even the 3s will like it.
Here's the website: http://youronlinenglishclass.com.pt/?cat=36

*** Edit ** the worksheet is in British English. Therefore snorkelling -> snorkeling, -> horse riding -> horseback riding, and
skating ->skateboarding.

I've made the mods and am attaching a US English version.

I am attaching my lessons for Unit 1 (Part 1 + Part 2).

Part 1 covers the listening and speaking sections for the TEXTBOOK.
I have also included the KPOP Rebus game just for fun if you have more time.

Part 2 covers the ACTIVITIES BOOK.
A section of the lesson includes a movie clip from "The Joy Luck Club" with a worksheet. I have attached the movie file as well.

I have taken some ideas/slides from others on here so thank you for the contributions. Hope this helps

davjs, thanks for that lesson. i only got to the first part of the worksheet with my students, and they needed a  few hints to get it done, but the lesson was fun and engaging for them with the variety of activities. thanks!

We played a game using the expressions learned.
The instructions and Q&A's are all in the PPT.

One thing to remember is to make the students repeat the questions and answers after every question.

I made my own rule to keep the class under control. I gave bonus points for the team who all participated in the repeating section and minus points to the team who gets too loud.

The team w/ the most points win the game. Everyone gets a chance to participate and it's quite fun. But when students get too excited,  or run too fast, they may get hurt. So in that case, I didn't allow them to run, but to walk fast.

You can try it your way. Have fun!

This is Lesson 1 ~ 3 Listen in, Speak out Vocab sheet

I picked out a few words from each lesson and made a vocab sheet. I gave this out for HW, or if you want to do it in class, you can get the help of your coteacher to explain the Korean meaning. We always review the words before we start the lesson, and it definitely enhances students' understanding.

Here's a bomb game to use for the review of Lesson 1: The Full Jar - for use with low level students.
