Clothes Shopping
« on: November 19, 2009, 11:12:42 am »
So I decided to do a clothes lesson, I added to RTalbot's clothes powerpoint and taught them clothes vocabulary and grammar surrounding wear and buy.
Then I gave them a catalog with different clothes with prices and colors available. So they choose what they want to buy and in what color. Once they are done (this takes a while especially with girls) they stand up and say what they want to buy.

My middle school girls loved this, all girls love to shop for clothes. I also made a boy's catalog too.

This is really great! If our printer and copiers weren't crap I'd be all set.

Awesome, awesome, awesome. I'm reposting this on a different thread since it corresponds almost perfectly to a chapter in the textbook I'm using.

I love this a lot! I am doing a shopping unit for a university freshmen conversation class, and I decided to use your powerpoint as a review for the first class.

I added some other vocabulary and photos if anyone would like it- attached here.

(I'm not sure why it attached twice, but both files are the same)

Very useful powerpoint. I used it for my after school class and they loved it.

I did your lesson on Clothes shopping with my After school English class! It was great but they new a lot of the words so I did a second lesson where I just went over some more fashion vocabulary and adjectives for describing good style. This went over really good and the kids learned a lot. It was fun watching them guess the words and trying to recall some words from the previous day (i.e. visor which they got a kick out of).
I wanted to give something back to Waygook, which has given me so many awesome ideas! I hope this is of use to someone!

I just taught this class with my 1st grade Middle school girls. It was a great success! In fact we didn't finish in time. Next time I will allocate at least 15 minutes to the shopping task. I also deleted the 'Grammer Time' slides because they didn't seem necessary and I swapped out the $300 for 300,000 won.

The main powerpoint I have to give most of the credit to two other waygooks.  I added the dialogue slides.  You can play a hangman game to help them fill in the blanks.  Then get one student to play the shopping assistant and one student to play the customer with each slide.  I offer candy as an award for participation.  I got the dialogue from a worksheet I found on islcollective.  I've also attached that worksheet in case you want to use it as well.  I end the class with a pass the pencil game which is the same as pass the ball.  I divide students into groups for the game.

Okay I made my powerpoint more interesting.  It was a bit too easy for my middle school students before and I teach in a VERY rural area.  I added patterns in the powerpoint like striped, polka dots, plaid, and checkered.  I also teach them what a skork and sweat pants are.  I review the vocabulary words dress shoes, visor, blouse, etc.  Enjoy.

Well this PowerPoint is a total of 93 slides.  I added a lot more examples for patterns.  Should be good.  I'm planning on using this for a period and a half for my camp.
