Daniel just sent in this tip to go with the Where are you from? lesson.

To tie this topic in with holidays and to review the vocabulary, I …

1. Place flashcards with the countries’ names/flags around the room.

2. The students stand together and ask me “Where are you going on holiday, Mr. Wolf?”

3. Mr. Wolf (me!) chooses and replies,

4. And the children must run off to different countries to me to avoid being caught.

5. When a child is caught, they become “Mr. Wolf” (beware, they get good at this really quickly, you need to be quick :-P) Also works well with landmarks, places around town etc.

That’s a pretty cool idea I reckon!  What do you think?

P.S.  There’s also the Dream Holiday song in the advanced Genki English set!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...

    This is a great game that can be modified in so many ways. In my summer camp, the lesson was “Planning a trip.” The students formed sentences of the variety “I’m going to China by car.” “I’m going to Canada by boat.” The countries and transportation were scattered around the room. Students had to run to the transportation picture first and then to the country picture. Our room was big enough to have them run to two places and it worked out great!
