BRIEF OUTLINE: Using the classic game, kids practice school subjects, days of the week, and using both in the context of a sentence. 

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • ScheduleTicTacToeWorksheet(optional)
  • Days of the week flashcards, school subject flashcards, blackboard
  • Chalk to draw a large tic-tac-toe grid on the board 

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Review necessary vocabulary.
  2. Draw a large tic-tac-toe grid on the board.
  3. Introduce the concept of tic-tac-toe to the kids. It's very intuitive and if you do a quick demonstration with your HRT the kids will understand right away. Believe it or not, tic-tac-toe seems relatively unknown in Japan (or at least, it's unknown to all my students and teachers!)
  4. Assign a day of the week flashcard to each horizontal row (total of three), and one school subject flashcard to each vertical column. In order to place a mark, a student must say "On ____day, I study ____." The day determines which row the mark goes in, and the subject which column (think Battleship!)
  5. Once they get the concept of the game, you can split them into teams or pairs to play.
  6. If you're playing together on the board, switch the subjects and days out a bit to have them practice all the target words.
  7.  

VARIATIONS:

  • For larger classes, or if you prefer, you can make this a pair activity by preparing a couple on a worksheet in advance and letting the kids play in pencil (just erase and play again!)
  •  

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • If you want to make the kids comfortable with playing the game first, do a round of teachers vs. students, except the teachers say "On ___day, I teach___" instead of "I study ___."

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • This activity should be used only after the kids have learned the days and subjects reasonably well and are ready to make simple sentences.
