Here is my lesson for this unit.

I played this video by Matisayhu to give the students a general feel for the topic.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYRS4FQXZrk

And I also played this video after I finished my power point to help the students generate some ideas on how they could lend a helping hand in their neighborhoods.

After they watched the video I gave them a worksheet and had them form groups of 3-4 to come up with an assignment in which they decide on ways that they can use their own talents to volunteer in their community.

I teach the listen and speak sections.

Here is my (simple) PPT designed to explain "be + going to" for the listen and speak part 1.

Very self-explanatory.

It starts with a simple visual explanation using a timeline.
There are a few slides where students can create simple sentences before completing the listening activities in the textbook.
There are then two slides with the target questions and answers for the speaking sections. You should pause here and go around the class, allowing students to formulate a simple question and answer. I might just introduce the structures before the speaking activities, then have students create their own sentences after we finish the book work.

No worksheet or anything, my students are fairly low-level this semester and I think the PPT + the book will take the full class.

Hope it helps someone.

After I introduced this lesson, went through several speaking exercises and activities, we put the books away and tried this "making plans" game that I picked up from orientation.

You show the PPT, go through the rules, distribute the half sheets, and let the kids go nuts.

Instructions:

For this game I had all students STAND UP after they chose one “tile” from each section.

Then, I would pick a “tile” from each column, have the students repeat the words/ phrases, and then instruct students who used the same word/ phrase in their own sentence to sit down.

The last student standing got a piece of candy or some school reward stamps.

We played maybe, 7 rounds… The students loved it and it required very little material.

This is a complete lesson for Chapter 8, Part I.

I'm responsible for the Listen & Speak sections in the textbook, which are generally pretty boring.  This lesson covers the "be + going to" section.

In the attachments are a Lesson Plan, PPT Presentation, Bingo Cards (enough for a 40 student class), Bingo Sentences, Draw the Missing Body Parts Handout, and associated audio files.

Review the future tense with the students, indicating that "be + going to" is really a future tense.  Practice using the correct form of the verb "to be" and do L&S 1.

The main activity is Draw the Missing Parts Dialog.  Instructions in the PPT and Lesson Plan.  Finish the class with a Bingo and/or a Writing Activity (end of PPT).  Some slides in the PPT have notes; more information available there.

Lastly, make sure to save the audio files in the same directory as the PPT to ensure everything works properly.

This is a complete lesson for Chapter 8, Part II.  It covers the Listen & Speak 2 section.

This lesson is probably over-planned, so you may have to cut a lot of material.  It is also handout-intensive, so be sure to do your printing/copying ahead of time.

After a brief presentation on "Would you like...?" and doing the L&S2 book work, have the students design and decorate their own menus.  I've provided several templates for the students to fill in, but you could just give them plain paper as well.  Once the menus are completed, have the students practice ordering from each other's menus using the script from the book.  I add in some Play Money so they can buy the food from each other; this can be cut as well to save on printing/cutting time, but it does add realism and the kids enjoy it.  The group who has the most money at the end of the lesson is the "winner." Use whatever reward system you have in place.

I had first used the Matisyahu video above as a warm-up activity, but it took too long and didn't leave the kids enough time to finish their menus.  So I decided to move it to the end of the class as a "reward" or filler activity.  I made a handout to check comprehension of the video, and there are slides in the PPT to check answers.

Lastly, I included a sentence writing activity, similar to the one I included in my lesson for Part I of this chapter.  I never got to it then, and I doubt you'll get to it for this lesson either, but it's there as an optional back-up activity.

There are notes on some of the slides in the PPTs; more info there and in the lesson plan.   As always, make sure to save the audio files in the same directory as the PPT presentation to ensure it works right.

You are seriously a legend. Your stuff is golden. Thanks. I used your body parts idea, it worked really well. My kids loved it.

I went over the target language "I'm going to..." and reviewed dates/time. Then they did a partner worksheet to practice speaking the target language. Finally I used the same writing game that AlexStoltz1 did. I'd been wanting to try it since I learned it at orientation, just never did until now and it went really well. I actually totally scrapped the worksheet portion for my first class this morning to let them just play the sentence making game and they loved it.

For the "Would you like some?" portion, I showed my kids a 1 minute video called "Eat" that I found on Vimeo, then had them name a couple of the foods they saw. Then we used those words to elicit the target language and practice speaking. I asked them to come up with a couple of ways to offer food besides the two used in their book.

Next, we watched a short clip from Ratatouille (we had a field trip Monday, so I used a lot of video clips to keep them awake) and had each table of 3-4 kids write down as many foods as they could that they saw in the video. They got weirdly competitive with that, and liked it more than I thought they would.

Finally, we played bingo using my favorite Bingo template ever (thank you thank you to the creator!) that makes them use the target language to move on to the next word.

Pretty easy, activity-heavy lesson to keep them awake and participating after a trip.

And here are the activities (video clip took up too much space to attach them all at once.)

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

(Just save the sound files in the same folder as the game and it should work. One of my school's doesn't have sound working in the English room, but the game was fun anyways)

Here are the keywords (with Korean translations) for the Speaking Listening section of the book.

My co-teacher has asked that I now add Korean translations to all the new word ppts, so I'll upload them each unit as I go.

If you find errors, please let me know.

Teach this to your students... they'll thank you for it later!

Just a heads up:  The sentence construction of "Going to + inf. verb" in this lesson is nearly identical to the L7 in the J.L. Haas middle school Gr 1 text. (Chapter called Let's Go Camping), so if you need some other stuff, you might be able to grab and alter.

Here's a Speed Reading Game with a variety of sentences from the Listen and Speak parts 1 and 2.  Oddly enough, *after I made it, it appears they have the same type of thing for a communication task on P. 142.

For those who don't know exactly what to do, you can put this up on the screen (*or print it and tape it to the wall) and have 2 lines of students.

One line begins at A and reads left while one begins at B and reads right.  Where ever they meet, they rock, scissor, paper, and the loser's team goes back to the start.  It can be great if they try.

The only thing of note, I believe having your co-teacher work one line while you work the other is the best benefit.  That way you can focus a little better on sentence completion, pronunciation, etc.

From when I used the Haas books, this was in a different chapter (I noted that earlier).  I just changed a few of the slides around and have made it more applicable to the listen and speak parts of this chapter.

While I kind of hate bomb games, my students are low level and it does get them talking.  You'd obviously need to practice the dialogues, drill the vocab and sentence structures, but this should help.

Blessed are the template makers.

I revamped my Panda game from last year's Haas book and utilized it for this chapter.  If I remember correctly, sometimes if it goes to a bonus slide like fighting Master Shen, it resets the alphabet, so I always write the alphabet on the board and erase them as I go (just for a backup).
Either way, this extensively covers the phrases and syntax from the listen and speak parts one and two and the communication task as well.
Blessed are the template makers.
Aloha.

I used this worksheet today, and while it went pretty quick, it seemed good review.
