What do you think of ….? Feedback

Donna has sent in this great feedback for the What do you think of …? lesson.

This turned out to be a really exciting lesson. I divided the board into 3 parts: the “What do you think of THIS, the HIM and HER. It could get a bit confusing if the kids aren’tΒ familiarΒ with THIS-IT, HIM-HE Β and HER-SHE but they catch on fast. Here the kids can add a lot of new adjectives – the best ones were: crazy, stupid, bad, ugly, beautiful,super, delicious, terrible (if you use food cards). I passed out the Β cards and everyone put a Β card on the board and gave an opinon, “I think it’s/he’s/she’s . . .” Cool clip art figures get a good rating (a lot of adjectives!) Sometimes it’s a short discussion if a monster is a IT or a HIM. For homework they had to draw 4 pictures on the worksheet. This was a realΒ surprise. They were so excited to show me their drawings. Scenes from movies, figures from computer games, books, rock stars, etc. One boy brought in his hard rock/heavy metal CD and we listened to it. Sometimes I bring in a box of flea market junk, pass out the objects and let the kids ask each other. This is a lot of fun.

Have you tried this lesson yet?

P.S. there’s also a Him/Her song on the beta test forum!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. 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. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!

    I love this lesson;

    next step for me is to combine it with other verbs; I’m not quite there, though it should be easy:
    I think he can…
    I think she looks…
    I think he should…
    I think it wants…
    I think we’ll…

    And thinking about it isn’t it amazing how advanced the English looks by just adding these two words:

    I will go to the pool tomorrow>> I think, I’ll go to the pool tomorrow.

    Just great!

    Hi Richard, I’ve lost my copy of the “test” lessons 1-21 (the list of 20 or 21 questions to check if the Ss can understand you. But not the Line Quiz). I cannot find the link to it on the website. Can you post it for me please? Thanks
