Modified version of the speaking game from period 2. Students write their names on the back of the picture cards, get into groups of four, and put all the cards together with the picture up. The first student chooses a card (without looking at the name) and says, "Whose _______ is this?" (If you have high-level students, they can say "What a nice ______. Whose is it?") Next, all the students guess whose it is by pointing at the student and saying, "It's hers/It's his/It's mine." Reveal the name. The student whose card it is says, "It's mine." The student who guesses correctly gets the card. (RSP if there are multiple winners.)

Here is a very detailed PPT to explain the game. Even my low-level students could understand this complicated game from the PPT. The game is great practice for his, hers, and mine. I even heard some students naturally using 'yours' also. Overall, they had a blast.


Sonic game for lesson 2. You'll need a big dice, a basket, and a ball (or substitute with the big dice).

Quick pens writing game for period 5.  Lasts 20 minutes.  Instructions on the attached PPT.


Purpletequila uploaded a nice connect four page, I've tweaked it a bit and added another page to make the activity longer and include more expressions (I swapped out the project for period six with this activity which the students much preferred). Have the students play in groups, and make a team with pairs (2 vs 2 is ideal) within the group. Have the team mates take turns asking and answering. The first team in a group to connect four wins. I printed these on a full-size page, double-sided.

I've also included a ppt that will be helpful for explaining. The ppt pretty much explains itself, just refer to the cues and explain what's going on (asking, answering, ways to win etc.)

Here's a game of Pyramid you can play with your class. It's a variation on the Evolution Game.

INSTRUCTIONS:

Students start on level one of the pyramid and choose one of the four pictures. Students hold up a finger/fingers to show other students what level they are on. They go around the class until they find someone who chose the same picture (or who is on the same level, it doesn't really matter).They ask, "Whose [umbrella] is it?" They then play Rock Paper Scissors. The winner says, "It's mine" and goes up to level 2 and the loser says, "It's yours" and stays on level one.

Students repeat until they get to level 3, where they have to play the teacher to win. Some students who lose several times get stuck on level 1, so make sure you are there to help them.


I know this is late but I figured I'd post it anyway. (If someone else already posted it I apologize. I didn't have the energy to go through all 8 pages to check) I made a "spy game" for this lesson. It basically goes over the vocabulary "Where are you from?" and "I'm from _____".

In case you don't know the spy game, basically you give each student a picture of a country or a spy. Students must make groups of 3 (or 4 if you have a larger class) by asking each other "Where are you from?" They must keep their pictures a secret, because 3 (or 4 - again, if you have a larger class) students are "spies." The spies can be from any country and their job is to infiltrate another group.

Once students make a group of 3, they must come up to the teacher who will ask each of them "where are you from?" Then they must show their pictures. If one of them is a spy, the spy wins. If there is no spy then they win.

I hope that made sense. This game can really be adapted to almost any chapter/question-answer dialogue and it takes very little prep time. I've attached the photos for this chapter. I've always found that kids have a great time playing it, though it can go quickly. If it does go too quickly, just take all the photos and redistribute them for round 2.



Here is a Frozen bomb game for this chapter. Huge thanks to the original creator of the template! Enjoy!

Oh man... Q: "Whose chicken is it?" A: "It's Yuna Park's."

Might wanna fix that. :huh:


Thanks again to the creator of this template. Review for Lesson 2.

Give each student two small squares of paper.  Each student should choose 2 items from the vocabulary and draw them.  Then, group the students.  In each group, the students put their drawings face down in the middle.  Each student is trying to guess who drew each picture.  If they guess correctly, they take that picture out of the middle and keep it as a point.  The 1st student will choose a picture from the middle, and say "Whose ____ is it?  Is it yours?" as he/she indicates another student in the group.  The other student then says "Yes, it is" or "No, it isn't."  Students should be careful not to let other students see their drawings before the game begins.

Thank you so much! I've made a PPT with instructions and changed it to 4 drawings per kid.  The kids loved it! It took about 15-20 minutes to go over instructions and play the game depending on how quickly the students did the speaking part.

I hope it's helpful!!

My kids liked this if you have access to their school pics:

I cropped out one thing from each photo and put each on a different slide of the PPT. For instance, I only showed a small section of a student's shirt then asked "Whose shirt is this?" for them to answer with the correct sentence on their individual whiteboard. Then I revealed the full picture on the next slide. If they wrote the correct answer (It's ____'s shirt.) they earned a point.

They particularly enjoyed that the photos were almost two years old, because they are SO much more grown up now. :)

Here are some Madlibs adapted from another Waygookin's post for a different textbook. I translated the parts of speech into Korean so hopefully this won't be too difficult for my students.

Does anyone have any ideas for a fun activity/game for period 3 that will make use of most of the key expressions?

What a nice _____!
Whose ______ is it?
It's _____.
