I think I might do a spin the wheel type game for talking exercise C1.  I downloaded the wheel off of waygook and just changed the text.   I'll either divide the class into groups or just ask for volunteers to spin the wheel and say the dialogue with the given situations.  I haven't finished tweaking the wheel yet, but I uploaded in case you want to use it!

How do you stop the wheel?

I did finish it.  Here is my complete powerpoint for that lesson.  To stop the wheel, press 1.  To resume the wheel, press ~ (to the left of 1).  Let me know if you have any other questions about it!

Given the topic of the Unit, I felt that this video fits well. It is basically just a guy exploring Toronto's multicultural side. The students got a real kick out of seeing Korea Town on the other side of the world. I used it as an introduction to what multiculturalism means.

It's your turn - Part 1

I have attached the two activities I will do after my presentation.  Map activity is a speaking activity that students do with their partner, and the second is a pass the pencil game for the last 10 minutes of class.

Part 2: Do me a favor, please

This is the activity I have planned for the last 10 minutes of class.  Each slide is a funny picture and a sentence, each team must say the sentence without laughing or smiling.

Concerning asking for people to do favors for you, the G2 textbook by Judy Yin (Chapter 6 - Being Older or Younger) deals with this in the Listen and Speak parts.  It's nearly identical: i.e. "Can you water the plants for me.", "Can you take care of my cat / dog." etc.

Not really a grammar lesson, but more of a theme-based lesson.  Be advised, this lesson is designed to encourage conversation (*gasp*) between the class and the teacher(s), so be prepared for that awkward silence then they realize they're actually going to have to say something.

In the lesson there is a short presentation about multiculturalism as it pertains to Korea.  I ask the class questions like "What do you think about foreigners living in Korea?" or "The number of foreigners in Korea is getting bigger...is that a good thing or a bad thing?"  Continue on with showing Koreans as foreigners, using the video from dfresh above as a tie-in to the theme.

Finish the lesson with a Q&A session.  I put the students into small groups (about 3) and give them some time to think of a question about multiculturalism.  I give them several example questions, which they can ask, but they are strongly encouraged to think of their own.  Also, the question must not be answerable with "yes" or "no," and must be more intelligent than "Do you like kimchi?"  I then answer their question truthfully, and then get to ask them (as a whole) a question about Korean culture.  My questions were "Why do K-Pop groups have so many singers, but no one plays any instruments?" and "Why are windows opened in the school when it is cold inside?"  My classes were actually quite surprised that bands elsewhere in the world usually only have one lead singer and everyone else plays an instrument and sings chorus.

As a reward, we finish with a game of Jeopardy, which they really enjoyed.

AUTHOR'S NOTE:  this lesson can either be a great experience or a miserable failure.  I've found if you really play up the energy and present the material as though you are really interested in it, the class feeds off of it.  That being said, I have yet to try this lesson on my lower-level Grade 3 classes, so "buyer beware!"

I've attached the audio files (for Jeopardy) and the video file I used (for the presentation).  Unzip the file and make sure to save them in the same directory as the PPTs.

Good luck!

Here is a very simple Battleship covering only the goodies, phraseology, and structures from the Listen and Talk Part I of the chapter.  I hope you can use it!

And here's one for part II of the Listen and Talk with a little taken from the activity book *(green line) as well.

Enjoy.

These work really well for my super low level students to get them reading and speaking the book dialogues and such.
