Here is a simple worksheet for lesson one that matches what I got of here for fifth grade. I like them to match. It has vocabulary, key sentences, and the dialogue.

- The usual worksheet, this one with just one activity instead of two
- Meals Around the World PPT (good for I Spy/whiteboard games)
*- Adding on another food PPT, this one exploring some of the regional cuisines of China, the U.S. and Brazil, per student request. Notes for many of the dishes are in the note section.

*Suggestion for extension with the longer PPT...after introducing and discussing the hows/whys of each type of food over three-four class periods (maybe 10 minutes per class), had students work in groups to explain the what/how/why of different Korean foods. Just give them a piece of paper, instructions, and a bit of guidance. Some students really got it and tried to explain how bibimbap is healthy and filling but cheap, perfect food for mountain farmers who can gather things like gosari easily; and others just told me tteokbokki was delicious. But mostly the former.

Omigod.
I hate this book so much.
So I'm making a worksheet for the first lesson, a gap fill exercise for the first dialogue, and this is the kind of stuff that's featured:

Doil: I'll have Chinese food, too. Let's go together.
All: Okay.
Chinese: Would you like to try some dim sum?
Lisa: Yes, I'd love to. Mmm, it's delicious. Doil, what will you try?
Doil: I'll try this noodle. Hmm, this is nice.
...(later)...
Jimin: Would you like to have some gimchi?
All: Ha ha ha! Yes, I'd love to.


*facepalm*

1) It's Doyle, not Doil.
2) Seriously? "Chinese?" "Mexican?" That's their title? *groan*
3) "I'll try this noodle." Oh, will you now? Just the one? Have fun with that, kid.
4) You can either have gimchi or kimchi. Pick one and stick with it.
5) Of course it ends with kimchi. Of course. What's next, they marvel at the foreign kid being able to use chopsticks?

~~

I'm ready to change jobs now.

Edit: can't spell.

Practice ppt with the key phrases.

Writing Telepathy Game. I got this from another grade/poster. I just modified it. Each group gets a small whiteboard (or by themselves in their notebooks). They choose one of the choices. The last sentence left is the winning sentence, and whoever wrote that sentence gets a point.

I was trying to find a good activity that got the kids using the key phases from the lesson. So I created this activity that I will use for the first class for lesson 14. I call it "Paragraph Partners." I couldn't think of a better name. But basically I created short scripts and each student has a different sentence and they have to find the other people to complete their small dialog. I tried to make it obvious what scripts go together.

I was just about to comment on how much I hate this book's dialogue when I came across your post. I think my favorite line from this book is now:

Seho: "A taco? How do you spell it?
Mexican: T-a-c-o
Seho: "Aha, taco. It looks tasty."

I want to quote "Aha, taco" ad infinitum. As in "Aha, taco, we meet again!" And they are in the sixth grade. Do you also want us to spell out the words "cow" and "the"?

It's right up there with such stellar, realistic dialogue as
"I have a big plan."
"Can you tell me ABOUT your plan?"
"I'm going to run a marathon!"


Here is an old Subway commercial which uses the line "Would you like to try our big, big burger?" I'll be using it as inspiration.

Here is a rock band template someone else made (which is awesome) and I used it to review the expressions for this chapter. You need to make your own slide 7, where the students are timed and given 30 seconds to answer 5 questions. I couldn't figure out how to modify that slide, so I am just going to start the timer and show different pictures of food that they have to identify.

To open the class I am going to show Gover Waiter, when he serves spaghetti.

i used the meals from around the world concept and did much more with it. students will read or listen to the description of the food. (translation into korean might help). students have to guess the food and the country.

i made this not necessarily easy on purpose. feel free to feed as many hints as possible. i divided them up into small groups of 2-4 and they competed freely. class seemed generally interested and engaged the entire time.

great for period 1/listening.

Well, since you've decided to criticize me for the materials I decide to share (a pretty rude thing to do, just sayin), let me explain.

Since I like to teach, not entertain, I keep my powerpoints real simple: same font, same backgrounds. This creates a very low visual context; the kids can then focus on what I'm saying, the words, pictures, etc. I will use this powerpoint to have them guess what the foods are. They will probably use Korean words; then we'll talk about similarities between the two. You'll notice there are a huge number of slides, far more than you could productively use in a single period; so, if you'd like to use it, I suggest you pick the foods you do know and use them.

*Edit: which is what you decided to do! Great, nice modifications, very good for the type of lesson you want to teach I'm sure.

Here's an intro power point I modified from somewhere else on waygook. I introduced different foods from different countries at the beginning of the first class. I let the students guess the name of the picture as it came out and then guess the type of food after they saw all four examples.   At the end of class I played 4 corners with the same foods. on each slide students would chose one food and go to that corner. I would ask "What will you have." They would answer "I'll have _______."

I used the same items to play a guessing game I made in the second class. The pictures flash on the screen and the students have to guess the type of food they saw. Played in teams, but if a team said the wrong answer another team could guess. It was pretty easy. (except for candy-they all guessed chocolate first, and melon bar-took a few tries to get) I also played pictionary  with pictures of the same foods (just print out the static slides from the first powerpoint). They actually really really liked pictionary.

a bang game for the reading section

how to play:
Student draws a card and reads the sentence.
The student with the most cards wins.
But if you draw a BANG card, you lose all your cards and put them back at the bottom of the pile.

 Make sure the students know that if you get a bang card, you can still keep playing. Some thought they were out and stopped playing. I guess you could play that way, but if they stay in they practice more and still have a chance to win.

Also don't play too long or students get bored. So I set a timer for 5 minutes and the winner at the end of that round gets a point. You could play multiple rounds this way and have multiple winners. You might even shorten the rounds.

I made a Starcraft game for this chapter. Included lots of food words, of course. And some funny lines/pictures as much as I could.

Hi,

Don't check this site a whole lot so apologies for the delayed response.  Game will vary based upon material.  Haven't used the set yet, but we'd play like this...

Give students 5-6 cards of the set (they can pick at random).

Set a time limit and let students walk around the room and play RPS (does it ever get old?).  Winner asks the loser, "Would you like to try some _____?" from the set.  If the loser has that same card, that student responds, "I'd love to, but I can't" and gives the card over.  If the responding student doesn't have that card, he/she replies, "I'd love to" and each student moves on (no card changing hands).  Repeat this for the duration and the student/group with the most cards wins.

Note:  I realize some of the cards have the response, "I'd love to" and some have "I'd love to, but I can't."  Might need co-teacher to translate the fact the student response might not match the card response in this particular case.

Hey guys, here's the script from this lesson (one has blanks for the students to fill in while listening to the story)

Sidenote: did you know that in Korea they don't have school dances or similar giant social events in school?

I was trying to find a good activity that got the kids using the key phases from the lesson. So I created this activity that I will use for the first class for lesson 14. I call it "Paragraph Partners." I couldn't think of a better name. But basically I created short scripts and each student has a different sentence and they have to find the other people to complete their small dialog. I tried to make it obvious what scripts go together.

I like the idea for this one.  However, considering how unnatural the dialogue in the book is, I think you might have missed an opportunity for presenting some more natural sounding speech.

   Today, I ate a tasty hamburger.
   A hamburger sounds good. Would you like another hamburger?
    I would love another hamburger.
   I always enjoy a traditional hamburger.
   This must be a special day, I ate two hamburgers!


How many conversations have you had like that?!

Just a friendly thought, please don't take it personally! :)
