Problems and Advice - Cards with Pictures
« Reply #1 on: April 07, 2011, 03:07:24 pm »
I made some problem and advice cards with pictures to go along.

Laminate and cut out the cards.
Use them by handing out 1 card to each student and then give the students 5-10 minutes to walk around the room finding their "match".

*I have enough for 36 students, but if you have less students just be sure to use an equal number of matching sets. If you have an odd number, throw yourself into the mix!

After the students have found their match, have a few pairs stand up and go through the dialogue for the class.

My co-teachers want me to do the project portion (Think and Write, page 43) for Unit 2. I made a quick ppt about Dear Abby and advice columns - we're planning to have the students write anonymously, then shuffle them up and have a student or teacher read them out loud, then have the class suggest advice vocally. Any other ideas for this lesson?

Here's a game I made about giving advice. It's for higher level students. They have to come up with their own advice for the problems. I got some really funny answers in my classes. Hope it works out.

Ps. I made thsi ppt in openoffice, so when i saved it, i think some of the animation gtes lost, you may have to add it back in

A lot of material came from other posters; I may have changed some things to suit my students.

loved the ppt above for Giving Advice, class absolutely loved it too.

For the 2nd part of the Teen Years week, there seems to be no info nor any good youtube videos or anything. So I plan to do a version of 20 questions but more centered around directions and questions than objects. And they will have to ask multiple people to find a partner. I haven't developed this game quite yet, but I have a few days to work on it. :) 

How can you get information? Do you know how to ask for help?
Start ALL questions with:

A: Can you help me please?
Can you...
Do you...
Will you....
Have you...
I need ...

B: Yes, I'll try.
Sure, what do you need?

A. When will/can
What will...
Where will...
Who will...
Why will...
Which ..will.....
How will...

A: It will...
It is...
You need...

I'll be creating cards, 2 matching sets. For example:
"Find a hotel"  <You need to go 2 blocks down and look on your right. The hotel will be there.>
"Find your driver"  < Teacher will drive you to the meeting.>

This will force them to ask questions like "can you give me directions to a hotel?" and "Do you know who will drive me to my meeting?"
Each card will have that one word that lines it up. Hotel, meeting..etc. Then they have to go around and ask questions until they find their matching partner. This works best with large classes, although with small, you can just do the game multiple times.

Here is a Mario Blast PPT I threw together this morning before my only 3rd grade class that is up to this unit  ::) It elicits the questions that are used in Listen and Talk 2

Who
What
When
Where
Why <- only one question with why
How <-didnt use any questions with how

The slides don't include having the student generate any answers, however.  Please feel free to add it in if you want ^^

Can someone help me with the Mario blast powerpoint please? :)

When I get a Star or a Monster, the music starts playing fast and then it loses it's memory of which mushrooms have been picked previously! Is that supposed to happen?

Hi all! Here's the powerpoint that I will use to introduce the lesson material. I'll start with the listening part in the book, use the Powerpoint, then have the students practice the dialogue in the book. Afterward, we'll play the Mario Blast game above.

Laminate and cut out the cards.
Use them by handing out 1 card to each student and then give the students 5-10 minutes to walk around the room finding their "match".

*I have enough for 36 students, but if you have less students just be sure to use an equal number of matching sets. If you have an odd number, throw yourself into the mix!

After the students have found their match, have a few pairs stand up and go through the dialogue for the class.

This made for a fun, if chaotic and noisy, warm-up. The pictures are almost too good - that is, they hardly require any English knowledge to figure out.

My 3rd graders loved this activity. Thank you!
I used it as review in the beginning of class. It  only took about 5 minutes for all the kids the find their matches.

This is what I did for unit 2. I combined my ideas with other waygook lessons. I found the game in a previous waygook post

Lesson 1 - Good old Running Dictation

Print and laminate the problems and advice cards before class.

I introduced the lesson trying to elicit some problems from the students. I work in a boys school. If you have a student not answering you just ask them if they have a girlfriend. If they say no then you have your problem and a whole class waiting to give him ridiculous advice. If he says yes you choose a student without a girlfriend and get the one with a girlfriend to give him advice. Normally you'll get a couple of other good problems you can get them laughing at as well.

Next, go through the PPT until you get to the running dictation exercise. Again, it's probably easier demoing the activity than using the PPT explanation I made.

I then got my co-teacher or another student or two to help me tape the problem cards at the front of the room (on the wall) and the advice cards at the back. I like to tape them upside down and face down so that the students just flip them up to see the answer. This way the writers have a harder time cheating. I reward severe cheating with tearing up of their paper and a written assignment that sucks. Circulating and helping lower level students is also key to keep the flow of this game as most of the problems and advice are new to them.

Remember, I made this for an all boys class so change the cards as needed.

Thanks to all those who have contributed to this.

Hi all.
For the final 15-20 minutes of my lesson on advice I played clips from the t.v show "Britains Got Talent". I put the students into groups, and told them that they were the new judges of the show. After the students watched an audition I gave them a few minutes to write down their advice for the person who had auditioned. Then each group read out their advice before I played the next audition. Some of the advice the students came up with has was utterly hilarious and very imaginative. The clip on youtube I used was http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPA-bfKGTIQ.

Used the Britain's Got Talent idea and created a simple worksheet for it - I left out the farting one (girls MS here) - also made my own PPT using the dialogue and fun examples
