I used someone else's great vocab slides and added the key expression sentences. I also made a matching game to help students practice key expressions.

Anyone else consider the Story Land section on page 146 grossly inappropriate to teach to children in a country with blatant racist issues?

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.

Here's a comic strip with the Eiffel Tower. The PPT has the speech bubbles blanked out. I print it out for students and they fill in the blanks with their own dialogue. The original comic is here, too, just in case:

If they look totally stuck, I tell them to include the phrase, "What a beautiful tower!" and go from there. :azn:

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.
