A lesson all about plants? Perfect for a running dictation. This activity covers 8 different plants, and is differentiated between advanced, intermediate, and beginner levels. Have fun.

I loved your input ppt, Jharris. Really nice and clear. I just changed "would like" to the contracted form.
Made a worksheet with a word match, gap fill and find your best friend format. Thanks everyone for the ideas and material.

edit: I made a typo on the worksheet so reuploaded it.

edit2: Really liked the blockbuster game. I just made a few adjustments for my beginner class.

edit3: Oh dear, well that worksheet was for 2nd grade practising "be good at ...", this is the one I made for 3rd grade. Apologies.

Drill for Listen and Speak 2, part C + 'find the star game' (I got the template from an elementary thread and then edited accordingly)

The game is briefly explained in the ppt - let me know if you have further questions!

Here is my PPT for the day, I used JHarris' contribution (with some editing) and combined them since my Coteacher likes to do two pages at a time. Edited a Blockbusters game to have my students practice more of the key expressions through roleplays. Will probably make another edit which will include the actual pages as well. Enjoy!


Thank you woodsworth English.

Thanks for your great contributions, everyone!  I used two extracts from aklimkewicz's running dictation as part of my worksheets covering study points 1 & 2.  For next week I used an absolutely awesome LOL PPT game template I found in a different thread yesterday, and that I'll be adapting for other classes too.  I will have to add it at a later stage as it's on the desktop at my other school.

For my second week of this lesson I'm doing a modified version of Jharris's ppt (thanks!). But, I've also created a presentation for Focus on Sounds, a crossword puzzle, and a picture drawing worksheet that replicates p. 31.

That's really amazing material!
One of my classes is beginner level so I made a lyrics sheet. I'm going to do a "last one standing" activity with the song. You can cut out the words on page 2 and give each student. The students won't see the lyrics on the monitor, just listening. 

I'm going to do the crossword as a pair activity. One person has across the other, down.

Thank you for sharing this!

I played a NASA space test. The story goes you crash on the light side of the moon and need to walk to safety. You have 15 things that would commonly be on a space craft. You have to decide what things you should bring to help you survive your walk and get to safety.
It uses "do I need to bring..."  It's only loosely related to the book but all my classes participated (which I have never seen). I was mostly excited by how creative their answers were "Do I need to bring 2 guns?" "Yes because there are many aliens!" "Do I need to bring a first aid kit?" "No because there is no gravity, so you can't get hurt"
I show them the story. Give them about 7 minutes to rank the items (and answer why for 5 items). Then we chant "do I need to bring ____" I give them a chance to answer why. Then they can see the answers. At the end they can look at how well they did. The lowest I've ever gotten was 9 and the highest was 90.
You can decide if you want to give prizes for the best answers/best score.

The first slide of the PPT is the worksheet to print out. The rest of it should be self explanatory.
You and a coteacher will probably have to walk around answering questions. The students try to catch a lot of things on technicalities (the heater has no power? The milk is more calories than the food? The flares use oxygen?).

Here's a Minecraft Bomb Game I recycled from elementary, and edited slightly for middle school. Props to the maker!
