I only teach the phrases so I have to figure out how to make it 45 minutes and interesting.

Talk 1 was kind of boring.  I taught them different ways of replying to it (in addition to "No Problem/My Pleasure") and then made a game where they had to talk thank different people ( couldn't use the same person twice) and the person had to respond.  Each "thank you" was worth different points that progressed them on their game board. 

Talk 2 I made into Pet Peeves.  I taught them what a "pet peeve" was, introduced them to common pet peeves and then made them play charades.  Each team would send someone up to the front of the room and act out a pet peeve and the first team to guess by saying, "I can't stand [the pet peeve being acted out]" got a point.

EDITED: Lesson deleted when Waygook started charging for material we made without consulting users first.

Review "Do you mind?"

Introduces "Why do you think he's...?" and gives different examples where the students have to guess the reason for the feeling.

Hi there,
Here are some activities which focus on "Would you mind...". "Not at all" or "Of course not"

The first is a charades game.I print just print a few copies of the cards, cut them up and put them in a bag. Then I divide the class into 2 teams. 1 person comes to the front and pulls out cards from the bag. As they act it out the rest of the team shouts out the target language "would you mind dancing?"

The second activity is called perfect partners. I give each student a card and they must move around the room using the traget language. If they have a match they must respond with, "not at all" but if they don't match they must reply, "sorry I can't". When they have found their perfect partner (3 matches) they must come and show me and then sit down.

The last activity is simply a chicken game. I chose two students (by pulling names from a hat) who come to the front of the class. They then play rock scissor paper. Winner choses a sentence and the loser has to choose a hand from the teacher or pull a slip of paper from another bag. In each hand is a slip of paper saying, "not at all" or "sorry, I can't." If they choose not at all then they must perfom the action. NOTE: I totally cheat and add way more "not at alls" to make the game fun.

Thank you to everyone on this thread! This book is always such a pain in my butt to lesson plan for! I used a bit here and there from all of you guys. It's even harder to plan for this book because I only use it in one of my schools and I have 5 students in my class, that's it.

Shoutout to @elacosse for the PPT, and @dewsbury89 for the worksheets, y'all are the best!

@Alex Hoy I've played the chicken game before with a different textbook and the kids always love it, for next week when we do the Conversation Zone, I'm going to give them the option of a game where they can "embarrass their friends" (the chicken game) or do a charades game where they compete for a stamp (my rewards system) and I'll be the one embarrassing myself.

 I'm modifying the charades game so I will split the class in 2, each team has a white board. I will act out the card and the first team to write the correct sentence (e.g, Would you mind closing the window?) gets the point. I figured I'd post my game modification in case anyone has a similar issue as me with such a small class. Thanks again to everyone on here, saving my butt one worksheet at a time! Hope I can return the favour soon.

Hi guys,
Here are two activities for the sentence structure, "I'd like to know about..."
First up is a rows and coloumns game. It's fairly simple and the instructions on how to play are in the ppt. I usually accept any language that uses the target sentence. My second activity is a very simple board game. To make it more exciting I use "yunori" rules. In other words if a player lands in the same square as another player, they 'kick' them back to start. This also makes the game last longer.

Thanks so much Alex for the chicken game. My students loved it. :)

For those that teach the grammar points, my lesson on correlative comparative went well. We went through a bunch of examples and went through some riddles. After we played "a pictures worth a thousand words". I put a gif/picture up and they must complete the sentence with the correct comparative. For example, I put a gif of Squidward eating hamburgers and getting fatter. They wrote "The more he eats, the fatter he becomes".
