Hi! This is my first time posting in Waygook, so I hope this helps someone. Here is a simple lesson I did for part 1 of this chapter. My 3rd grade class is horrid, so today I decided I was going to do the least amount of talking as possible. I did a quick PPT to go over the key expression "I am fascinated by..." and then showed a compilation of America's/Britain's Got Talent Youtube clips. The kids absolutely loved it! They were completely fascinated hahaa.

After every 2 or 3 performances I would stop the video and ask if they were fascinated, if so, what were they fascinated by. They had to use complete sentences. It worked great.

I'm pretty sure I'll use these clips and others at the beginning of class (before the bell for students that come early) or as a filler at the end of class when we have a few minutes left to spare. My second graders that came in right behind the third graders saw the word contortionist still on the board and were trying to sound it out. I showed them one of the clips with a contortionist act and they were all enthralled as well.

Hope this helps!

I only teach the phrases, not the rest of the book.

For Talk 1 ("I wish to be ____ in the future") I adapted a jobs lesson I found on here and taught them some job vocab.  I saw someone post on here about the activity I did.  I gave each student a piece of paper and had them write their name.  Then I took their papers and redistributed them to other students.  I had them write the Talk 1 phrases for the other student.  They were basically reading their classmate's "future".  I had the students stand up and read their classmate's future out loud by repeating the phrase.

Sometimes they are really funny, and sometimes they are jerks (examples: "I wish to be an erotic actor" or "I wish to be a pig").  I learned after a few too many students feelings' got hurt (at an all boys school, no less) to review the answers and write down good examples and then called on THOSE students to read theirs aloud.

Talk 2 ("I'm fascinated by") I took Colby's PPT from above and almost did the same thing but then I adapted it.  I explained fascinating then they watched two travel videos.  Afterward I broke them up into teams and had them guess what I was fascinated by in each of the screenshots from the video.  They had to say "I'm fascinated by ___ in ___".  If they were correct they got a random amount of points (that would pop up).

Videos for Talk 2:

My Grade 3 lessons for this series of books are a bit older, so I'm less confident putting them up here. Hopefully they serve you well.
