Halloween is coming!

Last year was super as we held a ‘pumpkin’ competition for our 5th and 6th graders. Students were just so commited in doing all sorts of Jack O’Lanterns! They decorated the school’s lounge and did all these amazing projects with help from teachers and parents. Here’s a bit of what they did.

This year we will try something different, we’re going for Halloween hats.

Roleplaying

Today it was just awesome! I had my 10th formers roleplay a dialogue at the gym. One had to enrol while the other had to test the client’s fitness providing a  Fitness Profile at the end. At first they’re always a bit shy and I get no volunteers to start. As so, I usually call a team I know will have no trouble in standing before the class. When I still don’t know the class well I  just go for the most participant or the funniest students that stand a better chance to amuse the others and relax them.

The first team was quite nice in the sense that they used vocabulary correctly, they were fluent and funny. the class relaxed and so I could go on. We had a good laugh as the clients paraded following the instructor’s orders. Wouldn’t like to go to that gym though. Too tough! 🙂

I’ve used ROLE PLAYS FOR TODAY (photocopiable resources) by Jason Anderson

Later I’ve found it in Scribd free downloading:

My new experience with Lingtlanguage.

You can record your voice and set assignments. Students do it at home. They can record their voices as many times as they wish until they’re happy with it. assignments can be either oral or written and you can submit feedback afterwards.
