Listen & Speak 1

Here is my PowerPoint presentation and game.
The game is the "4 Corners" game but used 3 corners instead. The key phrases for each corner are "I agree", "I disagree" and "I'm not sure" (other responses are included and taught also).

This game is not heavy on speaking, which I am aware of, but used it to stop them from sleeping, zoning out and being unresponsive. However, I did tell them that one student who presents the reason to their answer, in English, would receive pluses (using the school's student point system online). That motivated some to share their points in which I received very unique answers. The others would answer with the help of my co-teacher.

The signs I posted in the room are in the Lesson 2_G3_Three Corners Game attachment.
I think this game will be helpful for higher level students and smaller classroom sizes. But if you just want the students to stay alert, then this will help! :wink:

**There is an audio clip needed for the 3rd slide as an example for students to respond. Include the sound clip in the same folder as the PowerPoint.

This is a debate activity. Each slide has an argument such as "Computers are better than televisions." I had two students come to the front and debate, offering separate opinions.

E.g., A: "I think computers are better than televisions because they are more useful."
        B: "I don't agree. Televisions are better because they are cheaper..."

An alternate activity is where the class is split into two teams, pro-computers and pro-televisions. Starting from the front, each student gives one reason why their side is better. Go down the rows.

This activity was surprisingly successful. There are way more slides than are actually needed, so maybe the activity can be recycled for a future class or a warm-up.

Enjoy! ^_^

Listen & Speak 2

I'm uploading my Lesson Plan and a PowerPoint Presentation that includes a game.

In the presentation, I wanted to stress the difference between the key phrases, "You are supposed to..." and "You should...". Although they seems the same, I believe the key phrase of this lesson strongly suggests what needs to be done in the future rather than an opinion of what you should do.

The theme is Grand Theft Auto or GTA because that game is riddled with so many things you aren't supposed to do! Also, my boys were more focused in answering because it was something they recognized right off the back, even by just looking at the title screen.

The game is Unique Answers where the students must advise a "first-timer" what they are supposed to do in a certain place. However, only the group who advises someone with a unique, but sensible answer will get 5 points. Same answers as another team will get 1 point and teams that advise something that I don't have to do, gets 0 points.
Group: "You are supposed to be quiet in the hospital."
Teacher: "But what if I am in a lot of pain? What if I am giving birth?"
*This helps students to really think about their answers and be specific.

The game starts on slide 16 of my PowerPoint.
(Save sound clip in same folder as the PowerPoint)

I hope your kids enjoy it :azn:

Here is my ppt for lesson 2. The theme for this lesson for me was nature and dystopia.

My powerpoints have the key expressions, but I do most of my explaining vocally, so there aren't a lot of words in it. There are "notes" in the "notes section about what I plan to talk about with each slide.
