BRIEF
OUTLINE: This listening activity is for helping students catch the difference between "teen" and "ty" at the end of numbers--thirteen or thirty, fourteen or forty, etc.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Briefly drill students on the difference between 13 and 30, 14 and 40, 15 and 50, etc.
  2. Pass the paper out to your students.
  3. Tell the students to take out a pencil.
  4. Tell the students that you will start at "Start" (point to the "Start" on the paper) and
    say a number (13 or 30). "The first number is...." Tell the students to circle the
    number that they think you said.
  5. Continue on in that way down the paper. "The next number is ..."
    "The last number is ....."
    6. When you reach a character at the bottom of the paper, ask the students which
    character they think it is.
     

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This activity can be done three times in a row as students seem to (reasonably) enjoy it.
    I suggest going somewhat slowly the first time, but for the second and third times you
    might want to pick up the speed a bit. This activity is fairly easy for most students but a bit challenging for some.
  • For the second and third times, you can tell the students to use a different color pencil or pen, or to put a triangle or square around the numbers you say.
