I had the same issue, although I have 6th grade. I think these ideas could be easily adapted to middle 1 and 2. Here's some things I did:

musical genres, play videos, teach some descriptive vocab, they write down opinions then survey each other (2 classes)

the optical illusions I found on Waygook.

The Pixar idea above

Food: review food terms, “how to order” roleplay, make a menu project

Shopping: More in-depth review of shopping terms, roleplay, bargain game, clerk/customer game

What Happened Next?: Students learn concepts related to “What happened next?”, creative writing project

All Free-talking class: free-talking using “I would” (“If I won a million dollars, I would … / If I had three wishes, I would wish for…/ If I was Principal for a day, I would”), review game

Common Mistakes: introduce most common English mistakes, games to review these points, free-talking

Let’s go to the movies: Movie poster project and presentation (reviews shopping, directions, creative writing).

Sports Day: Students learn game rules and vocabulary, Ultimate Frisbee, freeze tag
 (not good for weather now, but in a few months...)

I had them do research projects and presentations about famous English-speaking historical figures. Split them up into small groups, give them a couple of days to do research in the computer lab, and give them some poster board to make visuals. Afterward, you can post them around the English zone, and your co-teachers will think you're amazing for basically sitting on your hands for a week or two.

Wow! I can't thank you enough! I'm sure that this will be so helpful to let my students prepare for NEAT.

Here is a hidden picture worksheet i made. It's just a time filler, or you can base a lesson off the vocab, by playing a game after completion. 

I have no technology in my MS classrooms, so I am constantly trying to come up with new things for the kids to do.

This booklet is amazing! I have been struggling with coming up with simple and easily explainable tasks for my first year students since I don't have a co-teacher to assist me with instruction or discipline.

With 20+ kids, the class can become very chaotic when I do group games and group activities. These short, 15 minute focused activities are perfect and can be modified for the different levels I have.

Thanks for sharing

I find this website great for my afterschool classes. It has several board games, puzzles and worksheets that are easy to print and the students enjoy doing.

A bit late to reply but wanted to throw this out there - The British Council offers some great lessons - I've used the ones under 'skills' with the worksheets provided. http://learnenglishteens.britishcouncil.org/skills


Middle After School Club Curriculum (Working)
« Reply #28 on: April 01, 2021, 02:39:22 pm »
Just thought I would share my basic outline for a yearly curriculum of themes and rough weekly lesson ideas for the year. Originally for Middle School but I plan on making a simpler version for 3/4 and 5/6 Elementary.

Hope it helps!
