(2011 National) Grade 5, Lesson 12 - "This is a Bedroom"
« on: November 07, 2008, 10:30:34 am »
I am constantly trying to supplement the Grade 5 textbook. I generally skip all the activities that are linguistically incorrect, racist or just plain wrong (like pointing to a dining room and calling it a living room). I never do the chants or the songs, and my students only take about 2 minutes to write the Grade 2 level words (like "grapes" or "apple") that are in the book.

Here is an example of something I've done recently:

1. Ask the students about the rooms in their house. How many bedrooms? Who sleeps there?

2. Write "Dream Bedroom Design" on the board. Words like "dream" and "design" have been konglishized, so they should understand. Use this website to further introduce the idea of designing your own bedroom, and get them excited about the prospect:
http://www.oyunlar1.com/online.php?flash=11

3. Give them a worksheet, but tell them not to write on it until you have told them to. Then, question by question, brainstorm answers. Example: What is your favorite color? And write all the colours that they shout out to you on the board. It greats a great energy. Do this for all 6 questions. You're just reviewing basic vocabulary here... colours, sports, animals... so it shouldn't be a problem. Write them on the board, and stick appropriate magnets/flashcards next to them for your visual learners.

4. Explain/translate "theme"... in Korean: 주제 or 제목 (ju-jae or jae-mok). Essentially, they choose one of their answers (or a combination of them) and make up their theme.

5. Each student draws out their dream bedroom. Again, you may want to show the website flash game again. You can also go over vocab like bed, dresser, carpet...

6. The 2nd part is more difficult. Basically, once they colour in their picture, they have to tell you about it, using "There is..." and "There are...". Illustrate the difference between these two. This part takes a lot of teacher support... and you'll end up with similar sentences (There is a blue dresser)... but hey... it's a lot better than singing a decontextualized song about a future house that makes no sense to anyone....

Future house?   Seriously, that's the best they could do?  Rather than just talking about the houses or apartments the students have, they talk about future house?  Surprised they didn't have a few Koreans in blackface sweeping up.  That book was brutal.  It was fun not being allowed to deviate from it whatsoever. 

This lesson is awesome, thanks for sharing!

Thanks!

I'm going to upload more of my elementary lessons... Those of us who never have co-teachers in the room while we're teaching (ahem), should start deviating more from the textbook.

If I could get my hands on the people who wrote the more racist bits of the book....

Simple vocab game - the students work in groups and make lists for vocab topics relevant to the lesson. Each team gets 2 points for a word no other team writes, if no team wins a round then each team must keep naming words until they can't name anymore.

Rooms of a house song:

Also uses the "-ing" form from the previous lesson, so a good review AND introduction.  Two birds!

Much love for The House Song, especially "kitchen, not chicken, it's kitchen."  I've been looking forward to using this song since March!

Nice house song.

Here are some things I will use. In the first period I am going to use a revealing game where the students have to guess what room the hidden picture is. I don't know where the original ppt came from but I am very grateful to whoever made it because my students really love this game.

In the third period I am going to use the wordsearch and crossword (the crossword clues will be read) and also because it is nearly halloween I am going to use halloween monsters to review prepositions and then play a guessing game. The students have to guess what room the monster is in and secondly where it is. They will get 1 point for each correct answer.

My co-teacher really wanted to 'make a house' so we're taking 2 lessons for craft-making.  We downloaded the 'In my home' pdf from kizclub.com. I've attached it below.

I was a little worried about the lack of spoken English during this craft-making time, so I used the fortune teller game put on mediafire.com by another teacher.  I've attached it below.  I tweaked it a little and made a workable template you can change and print out.  I played this with the students in groups while they were making their houses.  They loved it.  Maybe next lesson we'll get around to them actually making their own fortune teller.

Here's a simple watch and answer questions activity. They have learnt the rooms of the house an items before hand. Discuss answers and talk after.

Watch this simpsons house tour once discuss what you see and get students to tell you what they see, then hand out the worksheet and play a few more times.

Family Feud ppt that I made for This is a bedroom.

Divide the students into three groups. Have each group take turn picking a room. They can only say three wrong answers, then give the other students to guess the rest of the items in the house. 

Click on the numbers, then the answers and points will appear. If the students gets the answer wrong, click on the X's...

I suggest printing out the slides before class because it get confusing which items are in the room, and the number of the item..

let me know if there are any problems with the ppt. ^^

EDIT:  I think I figured out the problem! Please let me know if there's still a problem with the ppt.

Hi!

Sorry, I think this family feud game looks really fun! However, I am a bit confused.

So I divide the students into three groups. Then group one gets to pick a question at the top is the correct? When click the question a name of a room appears. But when I click the number an x shows up and not the answer. If you could please explain that would be terrific!

Thanks again for your help!

I had the same problem at first but i figured it out.  There is a small area where you have to click the numbers.  If you don't click on that exact spot it goes to the 'x' or the next slide.  Just fiddle aroudn with it before you use it in class so you know the exact spots.  the pointer finger should show up when your on the link.  I had to do a lot of playing around and random clicking on my own just to figure it out...once i got it the kids loved it.

It was a bit of a  pain though, because if you don't hit it just right it can delay the game while you click back.  hope this helps.

Hello everyone. I have stolen so much from here already, it has really got me through the first few weeks here. Now I offer my first original work back to you!

I made a guessing game for this one with pictures of rooms in the house. The premise is that they see the pictures extremely zoomed in at first and can gamble and guess for higher points before the picture becomes clearer and they can see what room it is.

We always have our class divided into 6 teams and they played in their teams. After each slide, we asked if any team wanted to 'play' and if they did, they had to tell the c-t what their guess was. We kept it secret so they wouldn't all just guess the same thing.

My kids seemed to enjoy this a lot, hope it might be of use to someone.

Grade 5 Lesson 12 - This is a bedroom MARIO GAME
« Reply #19 on: October 11, 2010, 11:30:07 pm »
A Mario game adapted from Sally's wonderful template. I added numbers to help select the questions and changed the scoring, eliminating the negative scores and replacing them with "switch points with another team", "steal 4 points" etc., I also wrote out Princess Peach's "ransom" note. I've played this game with 6th, 5th and 4th graders and they really enjoyed it. Thanks again to SALLY for her great work creating a great alternative to the traditional bomb game!
