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’t familiar with THIS-IT, HIM-HE  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  cards and everyone put a  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 real 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. 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...

    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
