This is a very basic ppt covering a Jenga game for my first day of class. Honestly, there isn't much material here, but since it is the beginning of the semester with a new group of students, I'll do other introductions and warm-ups to start with. I've revamped and reuploaded my new version. There are lots of pictures, which should help clarify the introduction phrases, but really this is something that lends to a more physical (moving around and doing the actions) class. This is my first time with this book, and it looks even more sparse (only teach 2 pages per lesson) than the one I had last semester. Anyway, my lesson plan is to teach the key phrases, then do Listen & Speak 1 and 2 (p. 12-13) and then play Jenga.

Oh yeah, and to do this properly, you'll need at least one Jenga set. I found a cheap one at e-mart called "Family Board Game" for 8.000 won. Mark 12 blocks with an exclamation mark, and 21 each with 'P' (pass) or 'Q' (question). I've never played Jenga with a class before, but depending on how it goes, next time I'll add more difficult questions and maybe divide classes into smaller groups with their own sets.

2015 EDIT: I've since lost my set of Jenga blocks, but I've gained a front desk type push button bell. So I've uploaded a simple mod of the game simply titled Ring the Bell.

Thanks for posting this, I like the idea of having them choose the wrong answer. I think that helps reading and speaking comprehension, and doesn't just pigeon-hole them into the whole "remember this like a robot/ there's only one answer" thing. When I make my presentation, I'll share it too.

Ok, re-posting this now that I have been teaching this lesson and it worked alright. I edited the powerpoint a bit, and only taught up to slide 6 for the first lesson. After doing two pages in the book, I did an activity where each group is given a picture of a famous person and they have to introduce them to the class. Some loved it, others just played around laughing at the pictures. Oh well, cheers!

Here's my easy power point for the first Listen and Speak page. I followed the powerpoint by the getting-to-know-your-classmates worksheet, and then the word search if there's time. I liked the worksheet especially because I made them romanize their names which is a nice bit of practice.......

My school actually decided I'm going to be teaching whatever I liked of the Bring Together/ Let's Communicate sections as well so I've included those in the ppt for Listen and Speak 2....

I'm kind of stumped when it comes to a worksheet/game for the second part, though.   Lies! BEHOLD: "to be" battleship!

Fair warning: make sure to take my pictures out and put yours in!

berkley - the battleship game looks awesome. I'm going to use it for a lesson review.

I've never played it before so to ensure my girls understand as well, I made a PPT explaining the rules.

****I changed "Students" to "I"

Here is Lesson One .I took from several people and just tweeked it to suit my students.I hope someone finds it useful.I have been asked to do lot's of role-play so I teach the appropriate "phrases" , and then we practise the dialogue and lastly each group gets to role -play for points...I mostly give points for speaking clearly and for participation,as most student's are very shy.

My emphasis was also to get the student's to use the different greetings instead of the everyday"Hello",how are you?" phrase.It's working!!! ;D
Thanks to all the people who put up such fabulous PPT's....
NB.Part Two can be done as a separate lesson!

Here is a complete lesson for Chapter 1, Listen & Speak 1.  In the attachments are a PPT Presentation, Lesson Plan, and associated audio files.

This is my first year working with these books, but I've found that all of the English textbooks basically teach the same thing, with some minor differences in wording and order.  I've taken many of my previous lessons with a different textbook and adapted them to fit these lessons.  I'll be sure to upload them as time goes on.

For this lesson, there is a lot of additional information in the Lesson Plan and comments on some of the PPT slides.  Also, I hate using the CDs, so I typically incorporate the audio from the CDs into my PPTs, so that I don't interrupt the flow of the class by switching back and forth between screens.  Instructions on how to operate these slides are in the comments.

Be sure to save the audio files in the same place as the PPT, and everything should work fine.  I've included links to the videos I used in the PPT, as file size limits didn't allow me to upload them.

Good luck!

Here is a complete lesson for Chapter 1, Part II.  It covers Listen & Speak 2 and Let's Communicate.

The PPT is pretty self-explanatory.  Please note there are comments on many slides, and this lesson has a few personal photos that you will have to swap out.

I've included a Famous Introductions activity and cards to print/laminate.  Students volunteer to introduce a famous person or character to the class for practicing the key expressions.  There is also a Nickname activity, where students choose a nickname for themselves and then must introduce their nickname to the class in order to play Connect 4 (a nice incentive to get them to participate and pick a nickname).  Lastly, as an optional activity or short time-filler, I've included a Nickname Rebus with 6 rebus puzzles.

There is a lot of information in the Lesson Plan and comments sections in the PPTs.  The audio files in the .zip are for the Listen & Speak slides; be sure to save the audio in the same directory as the PPT and everything should work fine.

The clap game is a pretty simple game. It is similar to the "Down by the bay" childhood game.

The way the game work:
1. Everyone stands in a circle holding hands.
2. Your right hand is palm up on the hand of the person on your right.
3. Your left hand is palm up under the hand of the person on your left.
4. You take your right hand and slap the person's hand that's on your left hand.
5. This cycle continues until everyone slap each other's hand.

Normally I would embed songs in ppts or download the file from youtube, but my computer at the middle school can't download JAVA's update so I added a link. I hope this helps someone.

1. Kinetic warm up then a simple story book for my low level 1st graders
2. Picture puzzle warm up to change the focus followed by vocabulary for some fill in the blanks for the gap-fill of the song. Students listen to and watch the lyrics video.
3. Role Playing ppt practice + actual role plays using the text
4. Pass the ball - Students answer various questions about themselves
5. Watch the original video if there's any time left over
happiness is everything

I can't remember where I got this from, but I added to it and my students loved them. They introduced their famous friend to the class and it was hilarious, but fun!

This is my first year teaching in Korea and my first lesson I ever planned so I broke Lesson 1 up into 3 parts over 3 days but you should modify it however you like. Thanks to everyone on their thread to contributing their materials to help me make this!
Click the links to view/download on Google Docs.

L1 Part 1 PPT
The final game is a card game I created where the students are each assigned a number in their groups of four. Student #1 holds the cards and always asks "How are you?" and the student whose card comes on top of the deck must respond. #1 again asks "How are you?" and puts the last card face down to reveal a new card. That student must respond appropriately. Students race to see which group can get through the fastest without cheating. I also change the students' numbers so they all get a chance to practice all the key phrases.

Card Game Word Doc

L1 Part 2 PPT
For the review, I have students pass a ball around the classroom. The passer asks "how are you?" and the receiver responds with however they feel, then passes the ball on and asks the next student "how are you?" Continue until all students have answered.
I show a short video clip I found on YouTube so students can see how the key phrases are used in a conversation. I review some vocabulary first, play it twice, then students should fill in the blanks of the sentences. Your co-teacher may have to help explain the joke at the end of the video.
Final game is a variation of 'Murder' where students have to walk around shaking hands as a group of two in order to be able to introduce their classmate.

YouTube Link to Video


L1 Part 3 PPT
I tried to make Bring Together Activity B more fun by having students make 3 lines in the back of the classroom. The 3 students in each row of the lines make a group and practice the dialogue from Bring Together. Then, the lines on the left and right move opposite directions and the students in the middle line stay where they are. This makes a new group who practice again. Repeat as many times as needed.

Just an amalgamation of previous posts. The game is not mine. Enjoy.
