Here's what I'm doing for Listen and Speak 2 this week. The intro PPT is an edit of another Waygook's work that I took from the first thread. The mystery box game I wrote myself as a review of both listen and speak sections.

L+S 1, "Do you mind ___ing?"

I found this worksheet on bogglesworld.

On that site, there is a creative suggestion on using the dialogue that I haven't tried yet, but quite like:
Students practice the dialogue in threes. Two people must perform it while the other student acts as a referee. If the referee hears a mistake, the students that are performing must start again from the beginning.

This is a complete lesson for Chapter 9, Part I.  It covers Listen & Speak 1.

In the attachments are a Lesson Plan, PPT Presentation, Do You Mind Permissions Game, and associated audio files.  The LP has more details; some of the slides in the PPT have notes, so more information also available there.

Cover "Do you mind..." and appropriate responses with the students.  Since the responses are reversed, i.e. yes = no, no = yes, this may be confusing for the students, especially lower-level classes.  I hope this presentation makes it a bit easier to explain, and fun and enjoyable for the class as well.

I'm not including the two video files I used in the PPT, but the links are available in the slides.  Also, make sure to save the audio files in the same directory as the PPT.

This is a complete lesson for Chapter 9, Part II.

This covers the Listen & Speak 2 section, "Why do you think ...?"  In the attachments are a Lesson Plan, PPT Presentation, and the L&S2 audio file.

I found my students had a hard time with the "Do you mind" expression from the first part of this chapter, so I start with a quick review of it.  Go into "why do you think...?" and do L&S2 from the Workbook.

To practice "Why do you think...?" I give the students 5 pictures with a question using the expression.  They have to come up with as many possible answers as they can.  This may be difficult for lower levels with a limited vocabulary, but I'm not being too picky about grammar and complete sentences...I want the students to be able to get their point across rather than forming grammatically perfect sentences.  FYI one of the photos is of me, so you may want to swap it out for one of yourself.

Finish the class with another review of "Do you mind."  Personally, I think this expression is far more difficult for the students (and more useful in English conversation) than a glorified version of "why?"  It's a simple choose the correct answer activity.  Have two students ask and answer; they can then pick the next two students.  There are 15 questions.  Have them decide what response to give (+ or -) with a coin toss.  More info in the PPT and lesson plan.

Hey everybody,

I'm doing this lesson for open class and am having a hard time thinking of something creative to do for this.  Economics is not my best subject and I don't really teach the 3rd graders.  Also I've only been at this school for a month, so feeling a little overwhelmed about the open class!

Any ideas on how to do this creatively or out of the ordinary would be super appreciated!!

I altered PJblake's ppt a little, changing just under half of the questions to "would you mind," explaining beforehand that it can be more polite (deferential, really). Section C of listen and speak includes adding -ing to verbs when using "do you mind" to make a request, so I wanted to incorporate this as well as using "do you mind" to ask for agreement/permission.  The "would you mind" questions I used for making requests in the ppt.

My ppt file does work in recent versions of PowerPoint, although the numbers don't disappear after they've been selected.  The more devious students memorize which numbers correspond to questions like "do you mind if I dance" so it can be used again.

Overall it worked pretty well, thanks for your original Pjblake!  I think my students now properly understand how to respond to a do-you-mind question  :P

My coteacher has informed me that Lesson 9 is being cut out of my third graders' final exam this year. Score!

But, a fun lesson is one of the Price is Right templates floating around here. That's what I did last year anyway.
