Modified a taboo game I had to fit this lesson, gonna teach it now, hopefully it works the way i think it will.

What's going to give it the edge is opportunity to have a shot at a target on the board with a tennisball, IF the team completes four slides within a minute.

Hope this helps someone, for once i am giving and not just taking haha,

Here's a lucky wheel review for chapter 2. I used the vocabulary list posted here (20 items, 20 questions in the game). Does not work properly with Powerpoint 2010 (something about enabling macros will fix it).

This is the modified version in which I corrected an error, so apologies if you downloaded the original with the error on the "proper nutrition" sentence.

There are similar games for Chapter 2 of Grades 1 and 2 as well.

Slide 4 is blank, LEAVE IT THAT WAY. It might screw up the links if you don't.

This is what I made for the first half of Lesson 2, Grade 3.
I attached a file of blank calendars that I gave to every student to fill out. (~5 minutes). This would be the schedule they would use to make plans with their partners according to the day I chose. (See slides 8-10).

Slides 11-14 were used for a classroom game in which I told the students that this was their schedule. Then, I asked a question such as "I'm going to the movies on Friday, the 10th. Can you come with me?" Using the schedule I gave them on the board, the first team to answer correctly would win a point. This tested them in understanding one way to use "I'd love to but I can't..." for times in which they could not "do" something with me.

(I know that was confusing. Ask me for clarification if necessary!)

Here is Grade 3 Lesson 2 A and B

For B... the connect 4 "game" you need to copy/paste more green and red markers and move them once your students say the correct sentence

Something I learned about using ppt that might be helpful... for the connect 4 game when you're in presentation mode on ppt you can just click the red/white stick in the lower left corner and be able to mark directly on the ppt.

 Maybe I'm not explaining this correctly... but I added 2 photos that might help you.

This is my first time uploading anything...here goes!

Sorry for the weird formatting in the powerpoint, I don't know how to use that program in English, let alone in Korean...but the content is all fine and usable (I hope!)

I teach each class twice a month and am not supposed to use anything at all from the book other than the target phrases. So this lesson focuses on giving advice ("I suggest you take some medicine"), and the second lesson I do for these guys will be on "I'd love to, but I can't."

The problem cards activity and worksheet is adapted from bogglesworld esl and the Kanye stuff is because he came up in a ppt I got off here for the last lesson and they were curious about him. It accompanies the video "Through the Wire." We'll be watching "Heartless" and giving him dating advice next time^^

First half of class we did "Sideways Arithmetic". They are fun little puzzles. Basically, each letter is really a number and no two numbers are the same. So, for the first problem:

.      e  l  f
.      e  l  f
.   f  o o  l

f must be 1 (no two single digit numbers can add to more than 18, or 19 with carrying)
the 1+1=2, so l is 2.
and so on.

I had students work in groups of four. after three minutes whoever had the right answer got a point. we only got through three. some kids loved it and some hated it, which was kinda what I expected. I was trying to insert a left brained activity into a right brained class.

for the second half, I showed picture of problems (taken from an earlier post) and had ss come up with solutions in their group. we then voted for the best and that team got a point.

Here is a listening "quiz" I'm doing for fun with some of my classes since it's review week. It's a bit of a challenge for students who are only used to "north american standard" accents, but my kids (who are not particulary bright or well-behaved) did pretty alright with it. Almost all of them were engaged throughout the activity and were howling with laughter as I defined slang terms like "skint" for them.

The video link is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4nGvUVTbGo

And my accompanying worksheet is attached.

40 minute lesson that targets "I'd love to, but I can't."

slides 3-7
I let the day of the week pop up and then elicit responses for what I’m doing that day. Then the class practices the dialogue: “I’m going to ______ on _______. Can you come with me?”

slide 8
introduces more natural language (Do you want to come with me? and Do you want to go with me?)

slides 9-12 use the schedules on page 27 in the book for practice.
(We wouldn’t really say “I have to finish the report” but “I have to finish a report” so I clarify that.)

slide 13
gives some other options for “I’d love to.”

slide 14
introduces the handout for the activity (Thanks Waygook JASinDaegu)
Students will fill out their own calendar and I’ll ask questions.
“I’m going to (give activity) on (give a day/date). Do you want to go with me?”
Students will respond according to their calendars.

slide 15 will be up while we’re doing the activity to give students extra support if they need it.

Thanks, Meaghan, for the idea and several of the slides.

This lesson covers giving advice and ends with giving advice to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson after she was seen kissing another man. Feels cheap, I know, but it is middle school!  ;D

PPT for speaking lesson (p43) on advice. Begins with a review from previous lesson. Has some Fail giff videos, and the students give the "crazy people" advice. Also includes a Sleeping Elephants speaking activity. And concludes with a challenge to present a short advice skit with a partner.

I know this is pretty late for the chapter, but hopefully someone will get some use out of it.

All about giving advice. The powerpoint is based on materials gathered from this thread (so thanks guys!). After the warm up/review, students view a powerpoint and then play a game. The files for the game are attached and instructions are in the powerpoint. To prepare the game, you need to print the cards and glue them to each other, so one student can read one side and their neighbor reads another. This has worked really well for getting my low level students to talk. I also put colored stickers on the board corresponding to each sentence stem. Students also have stickers and put them on their game pieces when they've successfully said a stem. The winner is the first with every sticker (like collecting pie pieces in Trivial Pursuit).
But how do I know what to lick and what not to lick?
