Lesson 9: The Gift of Understanding
« on: January 27, 2012, 08:31:02 am »
Grade 3 lesson 9 example
Hi. I seem to be in a special position in Korea in that my classes have to follow the book but I am absolutely not allowed to teach from it. I am a 'speaking teacher' and am strictly not allowed to teach vocab, grammar, listening, writing, or reading. So I am basically bound and gagged professionally.
It is not a good position to be in and if anyone else out there has a similar problem I offer my classes as a guideline. I have to follow each lesson for roughly 4 weeks so I will be posting the 4 parts of lesson 9. The format is pretty simple, you identify the topic and say anything you want about it, then go through each picture forcing the kids to make sentences using the topic, about the picture. Then when they have the hang of it you make them create their own dialogues with partners and present them to the class.

Grade 3 lesson 9 part 2
The format is pretty simple, you identify the topic and say anything you want about it, then go through each picture forcing the kids to make sentences using the topic, about the picture.

You could also make a worksheet to go with these, but when I did it my co-teachers had a massive fit.

Hi guys,

I took a ppt game uploaded by chris0206 on the old thread and updated it a little. Students have to practise asking  for permission and responding. If the student responding gives permission, the student asking has to perform the action. I made them a mix of silly (so they want to give permission), gross (so they want to deny permission) and benign to reflect the nature of my middle school girls. I also added in references to current dance trends and some cute gifs.

Choosing students at random was causing a riot, so I draw two student numbers from a paper cup to select the students with the minimum of fuss. About half an hour gets through all 32 students, depending on how reluctant they are to carry out the dares.

My girls and my co-teachers have all universally loved this game! It's great for hammering home exactly what "Do you mind..." means, as it's less straight-forward than "can I..." and can be a bit confusing. Thanks to whoever originally created this ppt!

Hey kittybawden, I stole the same game as you did! It was originally posted by rookiewaygook for J.L. Haas's book, grade 2 lesson 7. That's where I got it from anyways.

Mine is different in that instead of drawing randomly, the students pass a stuffed moose around while I face the whiteboard. Whichever pair of girls has the moose are my victims and they have to rock paper scissors and all that stuff.

Also this PPT includes an explanation of "Do you mind" vs "Can I"/"May I" etc and a worksheet for them to fill out.

I have some kids who refuse to do anything so I made a translation worksheet.

It works with the "Do you mind chicken" PPT and game posted earlier. (Thanks btw^^)

Basically, before playing the game, have the kids write each "Do you mind if I......." question.

Then translate it with the Korean teacher.

That way, when the kids play the game they can refer to the translation if they don't understand the instructions.

This also kills like 20 minutes and helps the kids that are low level. (Basically,  my entire class!)

Good luck^^ :laugh: :laugh:

Here is Grade 3 Lesson 9 part A and Part B.

For part A there is a "Do you mind if... game"
-->Divide the class into 2 teams
--> 1 vs. 1 rock paper scissors
--> Winner picks #
--> Loser reads the question
--> Winner picks an answer

Not at all = +1 point for both teams
Sorry, but ~ = +2 points for winner team

*If winner picks "not at all" than the loser must do what it says*

Here's a review game for the lesson - thanks to the op for the template.

(just save the sound files into the same folder as the game and it should work well. My second school doesn't have the sound working in the English room, but it was still a fun lesson.)
