BRIEF OUTLINE: Students fill-in-the-blanks of a MadLib and read their funny stories. 

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After explaining what a verb, place and problem (doshi, tokoro, and mondai) is, give each student a handout and have them fill it out.
  2. Then, collect the papers and choose some of the funnier ones to read to the class. Having the JTE translate the story as you read them might make it a tad bit more humourous for the students who a not so good at English. 

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Instead of reading the stories to the class, have the students read their stories outloud.
  • Instead of having the students fill out their handout, for smaller class sizes, go in a cirlce and have each student say one word. This will only work for classes smaller than ten students because there are only ten blanks on the MadLib.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • For larger classes, have the students work in groups to complete the MadLib.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Verb endings may need to be changed depending on what students pick. However, this is not a bad thing, rather a good way for them to learn new irregular verbs.
  • Not to be sexist, but usually having boys in the class makes this activity more fun and interesting.
