My kids are has bored with the textbook as I am so I decided to venture off the textbook for this lesson. I used a powerpoint from user - landry's ppt - Talking about Pets then blended it with Mlatte's ppt People and their Pets.

It includes:
            names of different pets
            descriptions
            question: do you have pets?
                  possible answers/more than one
            people and their pets
                  pets are friends and part of the family
                  some people look like their pets
                  people dress their pets up
                  pets have birthdays!

I hope it works better than my other lessons.

The activity section could be a big mess since my kids can get a bit out of hand. We'll see!

I can swim.

I began the lesson by writing the phrase "Things we can do" on the blackboard and I got the students to name different things we can do such as walk, talk, read, write, etc. Afterwards we did word puzzles and then played bingo.
  I printed out pictures of different actions and got the kids to pick a card and make a sentence beginning with "I can.../I can't + action"  the rest of the class matched the action to those on the bingo card and crossed it out.

This was the first lesson I taught and I made a prezi for it, but it would be useless for anyone else as I incorporated introducing myself into the lesson.
Anyway, my lesson went really well, after I show a few pictures of my family and the like, I went into things that I can do: I can paint, I can sew, I can write my name in Korean (the kids liked that). I then moved on to what I can't do: I can't play basketball, I can't drive a motorbike, I can't do taekwondo. As I went through this I asked the kids randomly, "can you do this?" and the like.

We moved on to the book and filled in page 48 in about 10 minutes.

Then we played a game called "I cannot speak English". The game can be found here: http://www.sendaiedu.com/bynewhorizonstext1.html under section 10-1
The students really enjoyed it and it was easy enough to explain, I let them walk around and ask different people "can you speak French?" and the like. The first with 0 cards won, although I ended up with about 5 winners.

I hope this helps someone, if you want to see my prezi it's here: http://prezi.com/btyymy7k7wlw/an-introduction/ although I don't think it will be useful as it starts off with "Hello, my name is Anneka"

 :) This was a superb PPT and my students really enjoyed it. I loved the review section at the end particularly, as often we forget about consolodation of new concepts when teaching and just assume the students have taken it all in.

Annekat your Prezi is beautiful but what I found of more use was the link you shared! Thank you! That site has some really great ideas that can be easily adapted to teaching in Korea~!

Here's some stuff I came up with. You'll need pics of the six animals described in the book. I also can't find the question sheet I came up with for the story (which I read aloud). It's actually a true story about my sister.


                What Can the Animals Do?                     Name: _______________


Look at the following six pictures of animals and write down their names:

1.   ___________________ __
2.   ___________________ __
3.   ___________________ __
4.   ___________________ __
5.   ___________________ __
6.   ___________________ __

Now, look at these verbs: say (English words), bark, spin (a web), fly, run, hide (easily hide), swim, bark.

Look at each of the animals and write down one thing it can do, and one thing it canít.

E.G.: A cat can run.
     A cat canít fly.

1 . ___________________ ___________________ _________________
___________________ ___________________ _________________
2. ___________________ ___________________ _________________
___________________ ___________________ _________________
3. ___________________ ___________________ _________________
___________________ ___________________ _________________
4. ___________________ ___________________ _________________
___________________ ___________________ _________________
5. ___________________ ___________________ _________________
___________________ ___________________ _________________
6. ___________________ ___________________ _________________
___________________ ___________________ _________________


                          Letís Compare!                      Name: _____________

Change the following adjectives to comparatives:

1.   dangerous _________________
2.   large ___________________ ___
3.   small ___________________ ___
4.   fast ___________________ _____
5.   delicious ___________________

Now, make comparative sentences with these words:

1. (cobra / rabbit / dangerous) ___________________ ___________________ _________________
2. (bear / monkey / large) ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ __
3. (mouse / dog / small) ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ____
4. (cheetah / gorilla / fast) ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ __
5. (cow / monkey / delicious) ___________________ ___________________ __________________

Next, make some sentences with better than and worse than:

1.   Ms. Lee / Mr. Gu / speaks English:
___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ _________.
2.   Stephen / I / speaks Korean:
___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ _________
3.   Koreans / Americans / like kimchi:
___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ _________
4.   my mom / my dad / cooks:
___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ _________
5.   my dad / my grandma / drives:
___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ _________

Finally, make some comparative sentences about things in our classroom:

___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ________
Look at the following six pictures of animals and write down their names:

1.   ___________________ __
2.   ___________________ __
3.   ___________________ __
4.   ___________________ __
5.   ___________________ __
6.   ___________________ __

Now, look at these verbs: say (English words), bark, spin (a web), fly, run, hide (easily hide), swim, bark.

Look at each of the animals and write down one thing it can do, and one thing it canít.

E.G.: A cat can run.
     A cat canít fly.

This is a lesson focusing on the can / can't portion of Unit 4. I will first go over the PowerPoint and then play the "Can You?" game with the students. The PowerPoint reviews can and can't as well as incorporating different animals. In the "Can You?" game, students must go around the classroom and ask their peers "can you..." followed by one of the twelve options. If the peer can do the task, they can write their name down in the box. If not, students must find another peer who can complete the task. The goal is to find a different student for each box.

Started getting ahead of my co-teacher in the book, so added this fun lesson as a bit of relief for my first graders.
It includes revision of the 'My Pet' lesson using another posters ppt slides and is generally based on the Flanimals books by Ricky Gervais. If you sign up, you can copy and edit the prezi as you see fit.

My co-teacher asked me to focus on comparatives and superlatives.
This lesson is just comparatives.
We went through the powerpoint together (very easy for both A and B levels), then I had them draw cards of two famous people and in partners (A classes) or groups of 4 (B classes) write as many comparisons between the two as they could. For the B classes we ended up saying at least 5 comparisons; some of my A classes kids filled up an entire page.
Finally I had them get in two or three teams, each person holding a celebrity card, and would call out a comparative, such as "taller." Each team had to line up tallest to shortest.
You might want to change some of the famous people. I had 12 people, six famous Koreans, six non-Koreans. I try to mix up the diversity and profession of the celebrities I use in class (and I get bored of the same uber-famous names.)

Here are 2 great You Tube video for comparatives.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNYf-wl-foI&feature=related
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNYf-wl-foI&feature=related

A great game idea for this grammar is to divide the class into teams. Handout the page with all the nouns on it to each team. Have a set of your own. Cut up the grid into separate words and place them in a bag. Have each team alternate turns by picking a student and having that student blindly pick a word from the bag. The student then has to use comparatives to the words on the team's page to explain what the word is without actually saying it.
Eg. The student picks the word shark. He looks at the team sheet to find comparisons. He chooses "mouse" and says "it's bigger than a mouse" or the word "tree" and says "it's more dangerous than a tree" etc
Allocate points accordingly.

It is probably a good idea to start off the lesson with a good set of adjectives to teach to the students so that they have the words necessary for the game to be executed successfully.
