BRIEF OUTLINE: Students race to read and write sentences and complete the passage. 

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • LetterFrom,A worksheet: Cut out each sentence and tape each sentence around the classroom. Also, you will need to change the letter to include your own details and place you live/visited.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Split the class into groups of four -- two students are reporters and two students are writers.
  2. The reporters will read the sentence and report it to the writer who will write the sentence.
  3. When they have completed all the sentences they have to put it in the correct order and find the magic word: morning.
  4. When students have finished this activity they have to check if they were correct, answer the questions and write their own letter. 

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This activity always works really well. It combines reading, writing and speaking.
