Last year's lesson on "What a ___" (exclamations/adjectives):

http://waygook.org/index.php/topic,1194 

(Old Lesson 4 - What a Nice Day!)

Our lesson this year also includes describing tourist attractions, which kind of ties into the Old Lesson 5 "Where is Gyeongbokgung?" except that we already covered directions in our lesson 6 this year...

New language:
Do you know (about) ____?
It's a famous ___ in Korea.

I didnt like anything i found, so i made a running dictation. you can make it easier or harder depending on your students. my students are pretty good, so i gave them a little extra.

running dictation works like this:
the first student reads the first sentence and goes to the first student and whispers the first sentence. now that i think about it, it's more like telephone... anyway. the students are all lined up and whisper the message down the line. when it reaches the end, the last student will write the sentence somewhere. I will have everyone working at the same time.
when time runs out or they finish, you can check the answers. fastest time and the most correct answers wins.

it is the same 20 questions on all 4 pages, but shuffled around a bit. this was done to keep groups from cheating. i hope to see this game evolve or upgraded in future lessons!

Here's a simpler version of Blazing Pens than the one a few posts up... this one only has vocabulary words. Can be used to review new words at the end of 11-1 or 2.

Here's my game for Day 1 (or 2).

Word Lotto!


Ss write 3 words from a choice of 9.  Then reveal the winning words.  Award points based on how many correct words they picked.  After the first 6 rounds, they must write 3 sentences and get double points. 

Takes 10+ minutes if you only do the first 6 rounds, or up to 20 minutes if you do sentences, too (up to round 10).  (You can stretch it out longer by making them read the words/sentences as a class before revealing the winners.)

Many of my students didn't bring their notebooks, so I had them write on the final page of the book, which has a big picture of Parliament and Big Ben.

Hey folks,

Wanted to post something that we're gonna do in addition to the "Story Land" feature in Chapter 11.  The story day is always a snooze, and as much as I try to come up with some role plays and activities my students might get into, they're a little wild for anything too organized. 

So I decided to make a "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" kind of game--2 students will come to the "stage" area we have in front of our room, using stickers as the incetive.  I'll elicit roles (characters, celebrities, superheroes, anything) for each performer from the students in the "audience."  I'll also elicit some emotions or other characteristics (Psy with a broken leg, Superman looking for his girlfriend, etc.), and have the students start a free, small dialogue.  The only catch is that I'll keep changing the background (aka the pictures on the attached PPT).  They're all about buildings, palaces, towers, etc. (things from THIS lesson) and people (from the previous lesson, 10)--students will have to talk and pay attention to the changing backgrounds, making sentences like "What a ______ __________!" (What a handsome guy, What a tall tower, etc.).  After about 5 slides between the 2 students, we'll clap for them and bring up 2 more volunteers.  Hopefully this is a fun but not too organized way to get them focused and having some fun.

You'll want to just change a few slides around, as I put a slide of my school and of myself at the beginning and end.  Hope this will work as an idea for someone at the very least!

Day 2 ppts

Grammar PPT [What a(n) adj + noun!].  Made from about 3 different ppts from last year.  Only includes the "What a..." target sentence, since I focused on the others on day 1.

What a... Hidden Picture Game.  A new one I put together, since I wasn't happy with any of the old ones I found.  Includes the numbered boxes so you can let students choose, or draw random numbers to make it more interesting.

Half - decent Hot Potato game I made for the reading section, the kids loved it.

Basically split into 2 groups or teachers vs. students. One student stands up and reads the 1st word, another stands and reads the second word etc.. until they reach the end.

If two students stand or speak the word at the same time, they are out and the class loses one life. They only have 3 lives and if they can't complete the sentence they don't get a point (or teachers get one if it's a group warm-up). There's green, yellow and red traffic lights in the corner of the PPT. Press them in sequence and it indicates they lost a life!

I also included a practice PPT before the game that you can omit at your discretion, I only included it to encourage the weaker ones. I recommend facing off 2 groups against one another as it's pretty intense, but another class enjoyed it as a group warm-up too so it's maleable enough I think.

One more thing, almost all sentences are lifted from the books reading section, and a sparse few from other similar sources (such as look and listen) So I really hope you find this useful!

For this lesson, we discussed Lesson 10 as well since we did personal descriptions (adjectives) in that lesson.'

The PPT was lesson intro and we did a lot of discussion on adjectives and positive and negatives with that. My CT did some translations in Korean and then we got the Ss talking about positive and negative adjectives. This can get a bit wild!

After we listened to "What A Wonderful World" and they did a worksheet. After we pointed out some adjectives they found in the song and played a game.

Hope this helps someone!

Here are more PPTs.

1) What a Wonderful World with the song embedded and timed.  (I added the timing and tweaked some of the animations from the original version I found last year.)  Just start the slide show and it plays automatically.  Pretty female vocals.



And a couple PPTs to go after showing two different cartoons that I used last year with lesson 4.  (I used to show a cartoon every Monday, so two per lesson.)  Practice "What a ___ ___!"  I'm probably not using both of them this time around, but since I have them; here they are!

2) Bugs Bunny - Little Red Riding Rabbit

3) Tom and Jerry ep 1 - Puss Gets the Boot

Here are links to the cartoons.  I have HQ versions, but they're too big to post here.

Little Red Riding Rabbit (I couldn't find it on YouTube!):

1. Video for motivation (my students were able to make such phrases as: What a crazy man! What a handsome man! What a wonderful diving (I allowed it) and What a tall building/tower.

2. Guessing Picture game - this is from prev. book actually but useful here anyway.

3. Mission Impossible Game:

I played this game in 6 classes and all loved it. However, it uses a lot of paper (so make sure to use only scraps) and is a little messy.
 *We set up tables in horse shoe arrangement in two rows to make sure all teams were at an equal distance from the box.
1. Give each student a paper (half or quarter works).
2. Make them write their team name (our grades are divided into permanent teams: red, yellow, orange, etc.).
3. Place a box in the center.
4. They should write down whatever the slide instructs them to do.
5. When time is up they should crumple the paper and throw it in the box.
Only the papers in the box and with perfect English can be considered for a point. My students are low-level so the slides are very basic, you can adjust.
6. After the game they are normally happy to clean up.

This is a second activity...

Group "Hot-Potatoe-Game"

Round 1: One fry, pass-between groups, yell stop and the group has to read the next sentence on the list.
Round 2 Two fires, pass-between groups, yell stop and the group has to read the next sentence on the list.
Round 3: Three fries, pass-between groups, yell stop and the group has to read the next sentence on the list.


The kids love these types of games...



Note: The power point is a handout to print out.

This is the Blockbusters Game, revised for this lesson.  There are two rounds, which, if you have time, will usually end in a tie score for the two teams (sometimes one team wins both, but not often).

A little more interesting than your standard bomb game, as there is also strategy involved to match your color across the game board.

**Note: You'll wanna change the slide of "Hoseong Elementary School" to your own school or something else.

Here is a little Avengers PPT game.
Lesson 11 mostly with some review slides on lesson 10, curly hair and all that jazz.

*This PPT has been acting up when returning back from the long, drawn out sequence slides (starting at the three helmets and then going into BATTLE MODE [A]). It has been resetting the numbers again to the beginning -so just watch out for this.
-Please reply if it still doing this.*

I begged my last co teacher to tell the school that uses these to switch over to another author. She didn't. No one cares about my opinion. I HATE the way this book is written. Why can't both my schools use Frances Sohn?

edited: I made a "Guess the famous place or vocabulary word" game. I included various places with their names but also the words "island" and "mountain" and a picture of Timon because I used him on an expanded version of the vocabulary for "I know".

This song is about the natural wonders of the world. There's a lot of new vocabulary so I added a ppt to help with the words. Also, I provided a fill-in-the-blank CLOZE for students to listen to. I dont expect students to memorize this song but to admire the beautiful planet we live in. Enjoy!

I took Marie's what a wonderful world lyrics sheet and made it into a simple fill in the missing words activity. If you want to 'original' lyrics sheet, just download Marie's. Also, it goes really well with Robotka's what a wonderful world ppt.

@MattAwesome:  Thanks for posting a new link to Red Riding Rabbit!

Here's a subtitle file I made to go along with it...with some help from a friend.  Still not sure about all the dialog in the copycat scene, but it's close enough.  Just rename the SRT file to the same name as the AVI file, and they should play automatically.

*NOTE: The ZIP file ONLY contains the SRT file, not the actual video, since I couldn't get the HQ version I have to convert from MKV.

And, the compressed AVI of Tom and Jerry.  Doesn't look great, but easier than trying to find the full video elsewhere.

I figured out how to convert the "What a Wonderful World" PPT to a video!

I really can't take credit for the PPT, since I just downloaded it from the old book thread originally.  I only added transition timing; all the text animation was already there.

So, here's the AVI version (exactly the same, but with the added bonus of being able to pause, which helps with the Fill in the Blanks worksheet by minamteacher...than ks for that!).

My students this year really seem to love learning English "pop songs," so we'll give this one a try next week!

Made a Word Race game for this chapter!

Print out two copies of the ppt. Cut out the sentences. Place the images on two ends of one side of the room. There should be one copy for each team. Two teams per class. Only one sentence available on the whiteboard/blackboard. Call out the sentence. Students will race across the room to get the image. Each team can get an image but only one team can race back and claim the sentence so if they get both, they win a point for their team.

I see it as a great opportunity to make them aware of how racist they are....I told them the girl is very cute....they responded as I thought they would and then I took it from there. The co-teacher was great and told them in Korean how rude it is etc.

This was a board game I modified from Kung Fu Panda.  Not sure who made it but wanted to share my verion of it.  I call this game, One Piece Island Adventure.   My students really enjoyed this game.  So the idea of the game is to end up in the very center of the board as it spirals around.

 Students take turns rolling dice and when they land on a space they read the target sentence,  What a __________!  Now if you don't have dice, you can have them play rock, paper, scissors.  Each one will be a number that they can advance.   rock - 1, paper - 2, scissors - 3  The vocabulary words are long bridge, big mountain,  beautiful palace, tall tower, nice temple and small island.   

I provided a ppt with instructions as well as practice for each vocabulary.   It's a good idea to practice saying the sentences before you begin playing.   Hope this is useful to someone and enjoy.

Snakes and ladders game.
Matching game -  Print and cut out the first page to play in groups.  Students should find matching pictures and then say the sentences. Eg  Do you know about Taj Mahal?  It's a beautiful palace in India. The slides after the first are just to practice with them.

Here's a worksheet, Paper clip game and Bingo game.  For the Bingo game, print the pages on both sides so you can play twice. 
How the paper clip game works: Students play in pairs.  Give each pair a paper clip and the print out.  Students take turns placing the paper clip in the center of the circle, with the pencil holding it in place, and flicking the paper clip.  They then need to complete the sentence in the box below with the same number as the pie piece they land on.  The first student to complete all their sentences is the winner.

Used someone's great Halloween Telepathy template that I found on this site.  Thanks, whoever made it!

I used a few monster vocabulary words at first, but then switched to target sentences from this lesson, as well as reviewing lesson 9 and 10. 

I added points and changed the font to Chiller for more Halloween-i-ness.  I also only used 8 of the 10 available rounds, since my students usually get bored with writing games around round 8.
