BRIEF OUTLINE: Students pass around pictures of sushi with music playing. Whoever is holding sushi when the music stops has to write a sentence.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. All of the students form a large circle and start passing around the sushi cards when the music starts. When the music is stopped, the students holding the cards must come to the blackboard and write a sentence using a word with the first letter of the sushi name. For example, "kanpachi" starts with a "k" so a word like "key" is acceptable.
  2. This activity can used for various grammar points as well. For example, if the grammar point was "How many...?" They have to make a sentence using that point.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Small groups like lunch groups work great for classes with little space to move the desks around. 

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • I used the song, スシ食いねェ!by シブがき隊, it's from 1986! (≧∇≦)
  • Make an audio CD with the song you choose. A computer's volume is not enough.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • The classrom can become noisy. Don't let the stuents throw the cards as they should be lamented and tell them to hand them gently to prevent paper cuts.
