Listen and Speak Part 2

"Have you heard about"/ "Did you know"

Warm-Up: Spot the difference. Skipped for many classes, as I wanted more time for the end game. But really good to get the sluggish classes going.

Practice: Review last week. Intro to language. Another quiz game. Teach them about some cultural practices abroad. Also, just a general knowledge questions. CLick on the black squares to make them disappear.

  • Battleship. Plugged in the key expressions. Students work to find each others ships by asking questions in English. I drew on 8 different boat configurations by hand and then made copies. Takes way too long for the students to draw their own. Make sure all students are facing each other and put up books or folders as dividers between them. It's been working absolutely wonderfully and gets them speaking for 25-30 minutes!
  • Quiz game. I adapted a quiz game I got from one of the Grade 1 posts. So props to the person who made it originally. First a multiple choice round, and then a writing round. This was back-up in case a class ran too long or Battleship bombed.
  • The Hardest Quiz. This was a  suggestion from my co-teacher. We tried it in class as a practice activity, but it took waayyyyy too long. The idea is not bad and could work as a production. Each group or student writes one general knowledge fact they know. They are trying to stump the other groups or team members. They ask the question and each group has to answer if they've heard of that information before.

I made a hot seat game for "Have you heard about...?" and the students loved it. It took almost all period. Maybe 30-35 mins.

One slide had my picture and the principal's picture so just make sure to add yours. Slide 47 has Pak Nam Jun's picture which students learned about in Unit 7. I talked about him before so they knew about him, but it might be hard for your students if they didn't go over that section or they might not remember him.

Also, there's a timer in every slide so you must click on the timer for it to start counting down

I did a hot seat game for the first period, it went over really well so thanks for that  ;D.

For the second section I started with a Word Wall activity (I am doing one at the end of each month), did some review from 8-1, speaking practice for Possible/Impossible and then a worksheet. I got the sheet from

They need to check whether each event is possible, impossible, or certain. I included a slide about the word 'certain' for this. At the bottom of the worksheet, there is space for them to make their own sentences (it is possible to.... it is impossible to...)

I asked for volunteers to read their sentences. If they read it aloud, they got to choose a video for us to watch at the end of class (the last slide has all the links, all about things you can do in space. Taken from Chris Hadfield's YouTube channel)

This is for Unit 8 LS 2. I reviewed the material from last class and continued with the round 2 of the game someone posted earlier. My students are a low level so this helped them remember what we learned previously. The rest of the lesson I found on waygook and tweaked to work.

I tried the game with my students and it worked okay. If you don't have low levels then do the game. If you have low levels try a different game. My kids are really really low. I can only teach 1 maybe 2 expressions at a time.

I thought that I would add a fun lesson that I did with my third graders for Listen and Speak #2. It takes a lot of prep though, so just a heads up.

Warm-Up: Tongue Twister competition; we start with a tongue twister. I read the tongue twister first and then we read together as a class for practice. Depending on your students you can give them a minute to practice on their own after you read together. Once the students have practiced, we then have a competition to see who can read it the fastest. You can offer a prize for the person who reads the fastest, but you don't have too.

Review: Usually, during this time we review the last lesson, in this case, it was "Have you heard of . . . ?" We did a quick round of Hot Seat where there were 3 teams and each team had 2 minutes to guess. The one with the most correct guesses was the winner.

New Phrase: We then go into the next key phrase, in this case "Is is possible to . . . ?" We go over a few examples and the students respond to whether or not it would be possible. For two of the slides, there are questions posed as to whether it is possible for the students to complete a task in a certain time limit. If they respond that it's possible we invite them to try. We only call on a few, not all to see if it is possible.

Challenge/Practice: After reviewing the key phrase examples, we then begin to practice understanding the meaning behind "Is it possible . . . ?" We did this through the "Is it possible . . . ?" Challenge rounds. We split the class into 5 different teams based on their rows. Each team would choose one student to compete in the challenge. There were 6 challenges. This is the part that takes a lot of prep. Each challenge requires the student to do something and see if whether or not it is possible.

Materials needed:
- Cookies
- Candy
- Velcro Dart Board from Daiso
- Timer (I usually use my phone)
- Puzzle (I made my own puzzles out of cut up cereal and choco-pie boxes. I then attached magnetic tape to the back so they could all be at the board together.)
- Present
- Oven Mitts

You can add more challenges as your class needs for them to understand the meaning behind, "is it possible . . . ?" The students really seemed to enjoy the lesson and it was fun to watch them get excited. I did this lesson after exams, so it's a good way to keep them engaged during that crazy after exam period. The clip art and background is from the seller, Paper and Clips, on teacherspayteachers .com. I hope you enjoy this lesson, feel free to modify if needed.

I thought I would finally upload some of my lesson plans. Most are generated from other waygooks and then edited to my style. Shout out to the other waygooks for helping me! :D 

My classes are 10-15 minutes of the textbook using a computer program for it and then a little bit more review and then a game.

Hope you like them and that they're helpful!

This lesson plan is heavily based on all the others found in this thread on waygook. I just tweaked it a little bit to suit my classes.
In my class, the teacher has already been teaching the chapter, so it's really me just giving them extra time to practise it.
Also, it needs to be noted that I only have 6 students in this class.
Hope it helps!
Lesson 1
1st: Warm up game-explained in pp
2nd:Introduced key expressions with pp and then I turned the practise section into a game giving the kids points if they guessed the correct answer. This game took ages. In hindsight, I would have made it smaller and introduced another activity.
3rd: Pretty sure we just played hangman to round out the lesson. Not gonna lie, this was not my best lesson but what can ya do.

Lesson 2
1st: Warm up game-explained in pp
2nd:Introduced key expressions with pp and practiced.
3rd: Worksheet-pretty self explanitory.
4th: Mini comic strip and then the kids presetned it.
