I plan to start the class with a video about the environment (i dont know what yet). We will spend a few minutes talking about ways to shop with the environment in mind. Then I will start the PPT.

It is basically having them play The Price is Right with whiteboards in teams. They must read the dialog together as a class. Bonus points can be given if the winning team reads their price in English outloud.

My ppt for Unit 7 Listen and Speak 1. No worksheet this time.

Self explanatory. Warm up taken from the book to introduce the topic (shopping). Using the first slide, elicit some more expressions that might be used in a shop, then move to the second slide.

The majority of the ppt is just introducing and breaking down the dialogue.

First, there is the 'a / some' distinction, with some practice. After each picture shows up, get students to categorize it (a jacket, some shoes etc), then use the key expression ("I'm looking for a jacket / I'm looking for some shoes etc).

When you hit the 'How about this one' slide, explain the meaning of the expression, then use the picture to elicit likes or dislikes fro the students. Elicit what expressions they might use to express their like / dislike of the jacket. If they dislike it, try to get them to go further and explain why.

Use the dollar sign to elicit the next key expression 'how much is it?' and then ask them what they might say if they want to buy the item or don't want to buy it.

Put this all together and practice the whole dialogue using the next four slides, then complete the textbook.

Then use the role-play cards. Have two students come to the front of the class, and choose a card out of a hat. Have them create a simple role-play using the location on the card. Rinse and repeat. Relax.

This is a magic tile game for the expressions on unit 7 based on a template from a different lesson and book. I tried it out today and my students really seemed to like it! The directions are on the powerpoint.

Here's my lesson for Listen and Speak part 2 (I'm thinking of ...) (What are you going to do?)

Warm-Up:Spot the difference. Have students use English to tell me what the differences are.
Good for getting them speaking in a fun way. So far this has been shockingly successful.

Brief intro to the 2 key phrases, and practice

BookWork (Mandatory at my school): Listen & Speak A&B

Games: I made 2 games because I realize it's going to be class dependent. One is a basketball shootout game. I edited the template somebody else made. Basically student must make a sentence to respond to "What are you going to do/eat etc?) using "I'm thinking of..." If they make a correct sentence they get to shot a small ball into a bucket (you can use a piece of paper and a trash can as well). Points if they make the shot.

Game 2: Run and Write. Can be done in pairs or groups. To speed up the game and because I have some kids that don't even know the alphabet, I play as a group with 3 runners and 1 writers. Dialogue adapted from the textbook Letter C.

Hopefully, this can be of some help or inspiration!

Listen and Speak part 2. -"I'm thinking of ~ing..."

Introductory PPT, worksheet, and some bingo cards.

PPT should be straight forward. I've included a couple slides at the end with various pictures of activities if anyone wanted to modify or add additional stuff. All my PPT files tend to be very basic, and I elaborate as (and where) necessary, depending on student level and understanding.

For the worksheet all they need to do is make one conversation similar to the example, pretty easy. I write the key expressions on the board in both Korean and English for the lower level students, so they can just copy that into the blank for the first part of the worksheet.

The bingo game is easy, start it off by asking a student what they are thinking of doing this weekend, and have them select an item from their paper and reply. The class listens to the reply and checks off the item. Then they ask the next student the question, the next student replies, and so-on.

Hope someone finds this useful.

I was in a bit of a rush so it's not perfect, but here's a battleship ppt print-out that focuses on the "I'm think of..." portion of the Listen and Speak pt 2.

While I don't think there are any incorrect spellings, the syntax might be bad (capitals, periods, etc.)  I was in a rush last night as there was a fire in my apartment building and it took up an hour of school work prep.

It should work, though!

As always, blessed are the template makers.

Here's another quick and easy one for practicing the shopping lingo from the listen and speak portions, i.e., May I help you, It's 5 dollars, How much is it?, I'm looking for a cap, etc.

Self explanatory, and you can do a quick drill and practice on the 3rd slide (I think that's the slide) for all of the 7 sentences.

Easy peasy.
Blessed are the template makers.

Here's a review game using the Avengers template from the Lesson 7 thread of the first grade book.  It includes both Speak Out sections of Lesson 7 as well as some of the vocab from "Journey of a T-shirt". It was a little easy for my higher levels but worked well with the rest. Hope this helps someone.

Thanks to 올리버-uh for the lesson template images.

Unit 7: LS 1

Here is my unit on shopping.  I started the class by putting several clothing items on the table, and asking for a volunteer, I provided the student with the script and we would pretend he was shopping at my store.  Some students started haggling and the class thought this was hilarious. 

Then I gave them cut outs of clothing and they went shopping with each other.  Lastly we played Price is Right.  Overall the class was quite popular.

Shopping game:
My lesson for this chapter last year went horribly, so I was excited to re-do it and the students loved this game.
We went over the dialogue together and then I gave them each the hand out. They had to fill in the blanks with something on the list from the dressup powerpoint, choose a price, and circle "it is/they are" etc, depending on if their item was plural or singular. Then I randomly called two students and gave them one of the dialogues to read. After they read the dialogue, I click the circle next to the item they used in their dialogue and it will appear on the person. They thought the pink skirt and earrings were hilarious.

Part A -  we worked through the key phrases and bookwork (itís an all-girls school, so forgive me for the shameless k-pop idol pics), and ended off with the Price is Right game. Found the template left behind by the previous teacher. Students wrote down their estimates on mini whiteboards, and each group read out their numbers.

Part B -  did the bookwork, a pair worksheet, and then got into some numbers practice (taken from the legendary Leo Fuchigamiís PPT -

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.
I also had to split this topic into three lessons. Also, it needs to be noted that I only have 8 students in this class.
Lesson 1
Went over the expression with power point and practise.
Activity one: In teams of two, I printed activity sheet one and cut the paragraphs into strips for the kids to arrange in the correct order. I colour coded each paragraph to make it easier.
Activity two: Printed a set of images for each student and cut them up. Teacher says object. First kid to find it gets a point. Then I say price, the first person to correctly write the price gets another point. Now they have to make a sentence using the object and price.
Activity three: Board game-This game went over really well, I made it quite difficult for them hehe.
+(I was also super keen and have an extra worksheet if time permitted...there, in fact, was not enough time).
Lesson 2
Went over the expression with power point.
Activity one: Work sheet-self explanatory
Activity two: Charades-also went over really well.
Lesson 3
First was a guess the brand-they loved it. Then a review of the past week weeks worth of expressions and practise.
Activity one: Price is right game-also got super into it.
Activity two: First split the students into two teams. One student from each team came to the back of the room, read the expression and then had to whisper the sentence down the line of their teammates till the final student wrote it on the board.
Activity three: Connect four-at the bottom of the connect four was a picture for each expression, they had to say the expression before they could make their move.
+ extra time activity.
