a years worth of lessons
« on: October 11, 2012, 04:15:13 pm »
Almost all of this material is from this site. I have simply borrowed and  altered. Many thanks to the original producers for their hard work and creativity!

This is almost my whole year of lessons. I am sharing this both to get my altered PPTs on here for others to use, and just to show the noobs what a whole year of lesson plans looks like. I do play games here and there, but I try to intersperse them between non-game-based lessons.

Rules (too many! I know! These kids know the rules. This is just to let them know we won't play games everyday, and that I actually do have expectations of them aside from [not] learning English.)

I just made a giant PPT of pictures from home. The first day with students, they are always pretty excited and interested, so if there is time left, just take questions.

 :o Jimmy!! Thanks for sharing all your hard work! I often get stuck with choosing random lessons. These are awesome and come in rather handy. I absolutely love your "what are we doing this week" starters; so do my students. You're the man!!

I played Stop the Bus this week with my students. The usual headings for this game are rather boring and don't really engage them chilluns, so I done changed them around to make them a little more interesting.  Just have fun with it and be creative! The possibilities are endless with this game, and your students will appreciate your lesson a bit more!

Stop the Bus Game

Students will copy the Stop the Bus chart into their notebooks with the following headings: “Letter, Idiom, Something that is red, Something that is bigger than Beomseo Middle School, Something you can kill a zombie with, Someone the class president loves, Sentence.”

Introduce students to the phrase, “Stop the Bus!”

Teacher will say “Stop the Bus, Stop the Bus,” and students will reply with “Stop the Bus.”

Teacher will then say, “The bus stops at the letter --.”

Students must fill out their chart. They must fill out each column with one word that begins with the letter the bus stopped at.

For example:
“The bus stops at the letter ‘A.’”

Idiom: A piece of cake
Something that is red: Apple
Something that is bigger than Beomseo Middle School: Airplane
Something you can kill a zombie with: Axe
Someone/Something the class president loves: (The) Avengers
Sentence: It was a piece of cake killing a zombie with an axe in the airplane.

Notebook Check

All of my students have English notebooks for my class. They are required to write the warm-ups and idioms for each day, and there are select parts of the lessons that I require they write down as well.

For notebook checks, I just play a movie and collect their notebooks and check them during class. I look to make sure they have written each warm-up, idiom, and other notes for each week. This is really helpful in getting my students to pay attention during class because I can tell them I will look for 'this' during their next notebook check.

I also make two questions for each of their exams, so most of my students know they need to take some notes during class.

Exam Review Game

Thanks to Sprite06, the creator of this game! My students loved it! I make two exam questions for each exam, and I almost always focus them on idioms, so the review games are idiom based. If I have questions left, I will draw that material from some of the other topics we have covered in class, but my students know they are just 'fun' questions, and they won't be on the exam.

Vacation

I am slacking because I only have a month left! This is just a quick lesson I threw together after vacation. I just showed my students some pictures from my vacation. Then we filled out the worksheet using my vacay as an example to model what I wanted them to do. Then I passed out the worksheets and had the students complete them. After they finished completing the worksheet, I had them choose one statement from the "what did you do?" question, and they had to write that one statement in the box at the bottom of the paper. Once they were finished, I had them tear that box away from the rest of the paper, and I collected their sentences into a bag. I had all the students stand up. Then I chose one piece of paper from the bag and read it aloud. If they did this activity, then they continued to stand, but if they did not do this activity, they sat down. I did this until there were a few kids left, and after asking them a few questions about their vacation, I gave them stamps. We played a few round of this before the bell rang. Done.

This week I played Leo's Big, Bigger, Biggest game with my students. It didn't go over well, so I cut it short after a few classes.

You can find the game elsewhere on this site if you want to give it a go.

Here is a lesson I put together by combining a few other lessons on this site. It goes well over the 45 minute mark, so run through it and choose what you want to keep in and what you want out. There is a game made by another user of this site that I used after the astronomy PPT.
