Listen and Speak 1

I have attached the lesson plan and materials for LS1.  I will start by explaining the key phrases on the board and ask students for help with silly things, then use the pictures in the PPT to reinforce the material.   We will then do battleship and lastly the help me game.  I understand the Help Me Game is not directly related to asking for help, but I wanted to provide alternative uses for the "okay no problem" "sorry I can't" phrases, and the kids just love this game.  If you only have a few minutes at the end of class, the No Laughing Game goes faster than the Help Me Game and should be used instead.

I am new to the book (same as the 1st grade book), but here's what I came up with.
The intro ppt covers Pt 1 of the listening and speaking, Pages 110-111 in the book concerning ASKING FOR HELP and the appropriate responses.  In the Girls Generation ppt, I might have included my name on a couple slides (for comedic effect, just like in the Grade 1 version for chpt 6), so you might want to go through it quickly.

A quick note about the whole shootin' match:

It was considerably above my student's level (lowest level I've taught, perhaps), but we muscled through half of it in one period.

The Girls Generation Game accompanies the intro, and should work fine as long as the students have completed the intro and have a grasp of the dialogues.  I showed my students 2 of the questions (I let them pick, and they loved it, but it was hard for them).

Either way, as always, blessed are the template makers, and enjoy!

Here's my lesson for Listen and Speak part 2- Complaining. It's been a pretty successful lesson so far and all my kids get really into the warm-up game, which helps them continue to be active the rest of the class.

Warm-Up: Older or Younger? Doesn't tie to the lesson, but to the chapter title. Simply guess who's older between 2 celebrities. Mix of Korean and American celebrities. Also, I used the Korean ages for all the celebrities. (even the American ones). Did this using whiteboards and then had groups say a sentence out loud. 2 points per right answer.

PPT- introduce the language (upset) and the dialogue sentences. Then help student practice making problem sentences for the pictures. Or if your class is low just drill and repeat and with the help of a co-teacher explain the structure of the sentences.

Textbook (i have to do the listening sections A&B)

Make your own comic story- Depends on the class if you have enough time to do this. I would say 15mins is the minimum needed to complete the project.

I used the Help Me Game and the students loved it! Thank you so much. I attached a modified version I made that is usable for the general public. Although I did use "she" in one of the slides because I teach all girls middle school. Thanks again!

Listen and Speak 2 ~ Complaining

A lesson on complaining ... I love the little buggers, but if there is one topic every level 2 student has mastered, it's this one! lol.   

I'll start the lesson by writing “Complain” on the board, ask students what people might complain about and write the answers on the board. 

Next I'm going to do a Running Dictation activity:  Strips of paper will be put all over the classroom in strange locations, students will have to find the papers and relay the sentence back to their partner.  After about 5 minutes, partners will switch roles.  The sentences are in my lesson plan. 

Following this activity I'll do a quick pass the pencil, attached (I threw it together pretty quickly so it's not great.)  And if enough time remains, I'll show the students a quick video and talk about the opposite of complaining: gratitude.   

Hope this helps!  Happy Chuseok!

L&S 1: Help Me

This lesson plan is heavily based on another found in this thread on waygook. I just tweaked it a bit to suit my classes.

My co-teacher also suggested having the entire class read the question during the 'Help Me' game so that everyone speaks more in the lesson.

A great twist that everyone loved is that about 10-15 min before the lesson ended, I handed small pieces of paper to students. In pairs, they had to think of their own 'Can you______?', fold it up, and throw it in a bag I had. Then we continued playing the game, but instead of choosing a number on the screen, the winner drew a piece of paper from the bag. (mostly this lesson went flawlessly, but in two of my all-boys classes the things they wrote were inappropriate, you might want to read the papers before allowing them to go into the bag)

L&S 2: Complaining

I once again mashed together a bunch of the lessons in this thread, so credit (and my sincere thanks) goes to all of you!

I did however change some things, including the comic strip. Getting students to make those comics were like pulling nails. I had to threaten taking their break-time more than once. So what I've started doing is making it more of a running dictation game.

I introduce the pictures on the comic, and the corresponding sentences, to the students on the PPT. Then I paste the sentences all over the class. Students have to work in pairs, one running to find the sentence that matches the picture, memorising it, and running back to their partner who has to write down the sentence they tell them. After everyone finishes I have the ss read the sentences out loud as a class.

With the time left over I write 'headstone' on the board and have students think of as many words as they can using those letters. They write their answers on the board and the class with the most words will win the competition at the end of the week. Thus far the record is 50 words.

Heres my lesson. It's simple, I had a hard time coming up with fun activities.

The students will learn the new key expression "I always have to ____, It's not fair!".
They will repeat information as a class.

After I will give all the teams a white board and instruct them that they need to fix the sentence on the board and hold it up when they are finished. Each round a new person must write on the white board. First team to finish each round gets points. It worked suprisingly well and I heard most students repeating the key expressions loudly to their team mates.

Extra time will be left. I just played some random games like "word wall". Students find words from other words in their teams, they can keep their whiteboards to play this.

UNIT 8 LS 2

I started my lesson by explaining the target sentence.  I then wrote blatantly wrong sentences on slips of paper such as "Melanie teaches math".  I walked around the room and gave the paper to a random student who would read it, then as a group we would reply "I'm afraid that's not right" and give the correction. 

I then did battleship (attached, but I did not create the template).  Students then played battleship using the target sentences.  I drew the four ships on their sheet for them beforehand, because it took the kids way too long to do it themselves in class.   There are several personal references you will have to change "Canadians ..." "Melanie Teacher..." "____ students..." and "...live in Gwangju".

Lastly, thank you Kingeudey for the pdfs, I have attached a ppt of just the puzzles in a format that will use much less paper when you print them.  I printed each set in a different colour and laminated them, so when they were finished with one, I could see which one they needed to do next.  I turned it into a race (who could finish all 4 the fastest) and the kids loved it.

Could you please explain how to use the puzzle game? How do you solve it?
Thank you

Part A -  we started off with the younger / older guessing activity, which went down well. Then we worked through the textbook, did the worksheet, and got to the flick board game that my previous teacher left behind. The rules are in the PPT, but it’s pretty straightforward –one student at a time flicks the coin and makes a sentence depending on where she lands. This went down really well, especially with the novelty of using real coins (teacher, money!!)

Part B
- we did a review of family words, using the Simpson’s family tree. We did the bookwork, and finished off with another comic activity, focusing on complaining (again not sure who to credit for the template)

GRADE 2, UNIT 6 (Listen & Speak)

This is for Listen & Speak 2.

Warm-up: Older/younger game. Not relevant to lesson at all, but it wakes them up. I took this from amreeves, but the rest of my lesson is completely different.
Review: last week
Learn: New expressions.
Textbook: parts A and B
Worksheet: Unscramble the key expressions.
Speaking practice: They practice the key expressions with a partner using the pictures.
Game: Body Language. The telephone form of charades. I have 36 students in my classes and thought this would be a disaster, but it went really well! Even the low level students can participate. My kids really got into it as well.

Hope this helps someone!

This lesson plan is heavily based on all the others found in this thread on waygook. I just tweaked it a little bit to suit my classes.
In my class, the teacher has already been teaching the chapter, so it's really me just giving them extra time to practise it.
Also it needs to be nothed that I have only 8 students in this class
1. Go through key expressions and practise with examples from the pp.
2. Small worksheet matching the action with the complaint. After students have finished I usually as a class get them to read it all out loud. They found this worksheet super duper easy and finished it in 2 minutes.
3. I distribute one picture to each student and make them stand up and find their pair.
4. Create there own comic activity-kind self explanatory :)
5. I also made a find a word because at the time I was worried we did not have enough activities. This was more than enough content, but I thought I would attach it anyway.
