BRIEF
OUTLINE: Students write a series of 'I am ~.' sentences about themselves.  The ALT collects the papers, reads a sentence out loud, and the students guess who wrote the sentence.  

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Print the worksheet front and back.
  2. Hand out the worksheets.  Help the students answer the questions about themselves.  For questions 1 and 2, the students only need to circle their answer.  The students should change the underlined part of the phrases in the phrase box.
  3. When they are finished writing, have the students flip over their worksheet to the scoring section.
  4. Collect the first row's papers only and have the first row stand up. Read one sentence to the rest of the class while keeping its author a secret.   
  5. The students must choose whose sentence was read (from the standing students only) and write their name in the appropriate box. 
  6. Return their papers and do the same for row 2 and so on one row at a time. 
  7. When you are finished, check the answers with the students.  They will write a O for correct and X for incorrect.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • When reading the sentences for each row, it may help to write the sentence on the board.  Row 1 is sentence 1, row 2 is sentence 2 and so on. 

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • You will need to keep the sentences author secret.  Don't give it away by reading it directly from the paper.
