I only teach the phrases, not the whole chapter.

For Talk 1 (I wonder) I made a compilation of fail videos.  I broke the students into teams.  Then I played the beginning of the video, paused it before the fail happened and asked the teams to write on their white board what they think will happen.  I offered them suggestions on the white board.  (Example: I WONDER IF he will hurt his groin.)  I asked each team to say their answer aloud together and then I played the rest of the video.  If they guessed right, they got a point.

For Talk 2 (You know what ___ is, don't you?) I described what it means and then basically played an adapted team bomb game.  I adapted it by saying the team who was playing needed to choose one team to "challenge".  The original team would ask the challenging team "you know what ___ is, don't you" (there's a picture on the slide to give them a hint) and then the challenging team answers by saying "Isn't it ___" or "No, what is it?"  If the challenging team says, "No, what is it?" the original team MUST answer their question to get their points.  As long as each team is correct they both get points.  Any bombs only apply to the ORIGINAL team, not the challenging team.

You need to edit the Talk 2 ppt "Exams" slide.  I said "When is it" and it should be "when are they".

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

This PPT is a fun relaxed lesson that covers the content in the real life zone. The kids love watching the short movies and helps you drag emotive speech out of them very easily. I found small groups or paired work with white boards worked well when it can to writing the story and answering the questions about the films. It also makes writing the positive and negative emotions into a bit of a competition that helps drive them to be creative.

Hi there,
Here are a few more activties to help flesh out this lesson. The first is a 'I have, who has' game but instead using the key expression "I wonder..". My grade 3 classes range from 25 to 30 kids. I printed the numbers on the back of the cards so I could easily add or remove cards without messing up the whole game. But if you think it makes it too easy then don't add them.

The next activity is a pair dialogue called ask the right question. Students fill in the worksheet. Then instead of asking the question and answering, student A answers first and student B tries to guess which question the answer relates to. Change partners and repeat. I printed 4 pages to a sheet which is why the font is soooo big.

The final activity is a yes / no game. The students are divided into groups of three and each group is given a set of short answer cards. The cards are shuffled and dealt out evenly. The first player picks one of their cards and thinks of a yes/no question that will yield the answer on the card using the key expression, "I wonder.... The player then directs the question to another student in the group. If the student gives the same short answer that is on the card, the player wins and discards the card. If not, the player keeps the card. Players take turns proceeding in this way. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins the game.
