|Goal of Lesson:||All students practice oral sentence patterns|
|Time Needed:||20 Minutes|
I usually have to teach dialogues to my students and they are low level. My classes have about 18 students and many are shy to talk. One activity that is fun is a call and response activity.
Divide your class into 2 groups on separate sides of the room. Tell one side, they must ask the question. “What do you like?” Then show a flashcard or give the answer to the other side. The other sides responds, “I like apples.” Then the first sides asks again, “What do you like?” The other side answers “I like oranges.” Go back and forth until each side has had a lot of practice.
Next, change the roles. The second side asks the question and the first side says the answer.
The activity should be loud and fun.
Instead of a group asking the questions, call one student to ask the question and the group responds. OR, the group can ask one student a question and that student responds.
It’s fun and gets the class talking.
