Hope everyone enjoyed the vacation. I threw this lesson together very quickly as I wasn't expecting to have to teach the book this week. Might be useful for some to start their lessons.
Focus is on page 120.
What did you do during the summer?
What are you going to do this weekend?

Also used a bomb game using annoying orange covering what job would you like in the future. Found the game somewhere here on waygook.

Thanks so much Enders! You have saved my life. I am so jet-lagged I had no energy to make a lesson.  :laugh:

Hey guys, here's what i'm going to do next week.

Focuses on

"What are you going to do this _____?"

"I'm going to ______."

* I have updated the ppt with a slight change to the activity at the end. It seems to flow more in class ^^

This is to teach the students the use of "going to".

Lockstock - how many activity cards do you give out? Is it just one to each student and the first student to get eight cards wins? Or does each student have more cards to start with? Sorry - long day!

I made this to get students to practise "You are going to..."

The first one is an example. I had my usual teams set up and revealed the full picture (you can try and get some language out of them during this).  I then asked them a question about the picture, e.g. "I've put on my hat and coat. What am I going to do next?" If students answer by using the illustration (for example, "You are going to put on your hat and coat") just repeat and emphasise 'next'. I gave one point for a good, relevant sentence and two points for a correct sentence as per the slide.

The original template was not made by me - I got it from Waygook a while ago and can't remember who did it.

Gapfill stolen from somebody else on waygook. Worked delightfully well. The first two are full sheet versions, the last is the half-sheet version.

The above gapfill as ppt files, since Word doesn't work on my computer (oh, Korea...)

Here is a great way to take it easy for a class.  And it would work for other lessons too.
All you have to do is explain the activity for 5-10 minutes and the students do the rest.  It looks complicated but it's not.  It's actually a lot of fun.

The prep work:

Go to storybird.com and just play around...get to know the site and then create your own short story to use as an example to show your students.

Tweek the powerpoint to fit your goals.  i.e. make a phrase from the lesson be required.
Get your co in on your plan.
Let the students have fun.
You do need to moderate the activity of course.  Keep reminding them of the requirements; it's amazing how fast they forget about them.
If it looks like they aren't getting anywhere don't panic.  With all of the classes I did it all came together in the last 5 minutes.
I've created a grading rubric.  Adjust it to your liking.

Important:  Keep track of the participation of each class.  I just noted immediately after each class the percentage of participation (noting cooperation).

Have fun.

Christiannika - looks great as long as you have a bunch of computers for each student.

I go to their homeroom for my classes and the co-teacher brings a laptop for ppt stuff. So, that's not very helpful for me. I suppose another way to do it, without computers, would be to have a set of pictures or dixit cards for the students to use, and do a worksheet. It can be done, but I dunno...

I made an introductory/explanatory worksheet with some exercises.  After they finished it, they could choose which worksheet they wanted to do next.  I will let them do more speaking practice next week, and use the textbook. I didn't have the second CD loaded on my computer at the beginning of the week, so I haven't done the textbook this week with any of my classes.

For the second week I did a little textbook work and then let students play Bingo for speaking practice.  I made each student choose their activity before they started so friends couldn't team up and make it easier to fill a line.  I shamelessly stole the pics from someone else's contribution on here - thank you for that!

I went thru the activities and excursions and summer past tense ppts as a refresher and to give them some ideas. Then gave them time to fill out the ws and did the I know what u did last summer game/ppt. The ppt explains it but I tried to guess what they did last summer and I i didn't I ate bon daeggi. If I guessed it right they ate salt and vinegar chips which I got from iherb, but u can obvi substitute something else u know they hate!

This is not mine. Someone posted it recently and I'm using it for my Elementary school, as well as, for Part 1 of this lesson. Thanks to the original poster! I hope you find this helpful as well.
