BRIEF OUTLINE: Student make a Cootie-Catcher in order to practice engaging each other in simple conversations.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Scissors

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. NOTE: The Present Tense Verb grammar point is used below to explain the activity, but it can easily be changed to practice Demonstrative Pronouns.
  2. After practicing the dialogue with the students, get them to make the Cootie-Catchers.
  3. One student should run up to another student and ask, "What do you have for breakfast?" The other student replies with a number from 1-4.
  4. The student whom asked the question moves his catcher the amount of times as the other students stated number and opens it up.
  5. The student who was asked the question then says, "I have... How about you? The other student replies, "I have..." The answer should be based on the food showing on the Cootie-Catcher. The student then lifts up the paper fold and underneath the food it should say, "How about you?" and have a blank space next to it. The student whom they did the dialogue with should sign the blank space.
  6. Reverse roles.
  7. After a set period of time stop the game and see who has the most signatures.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Since both parts of the dialogue ask and answer the question. The way to reward and recieve a signature can change.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • The dialogue is from the New Horizon English textbook series, but can easily be used with any other English textbook.
