Brief Outline: Students wander around the class asking each other when their birthday is.

 

Materials Needed:

  

Detailed Explanation:

  1. First, call out various months and have the students born on that month stand up and together with the rest of the class ask them the question, "When is your birthday?". The standing students answer, "It`s in (month)."
  2. Then, stand the students up and have them wander around the classroom playing Janken. The winner of Janken asks, “When is your birthday?”  The winner writes the loser’s name in the appropriate box.  NOTE: encourage them to write their names in English.
  3. Students change partners and play again.
  4. The students keep playing until they complete worksheet, or until the class starts to lose interest.

 

Teaching Suggestions:

  • There are two worksheets created for this game - ES & JHS.  Feel free to use which best suits your class.
  • On Patrick's worksheet, there are five boxes next to each month.  The extra boxes were added for students who share the same birth month.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This game was originally an ES game, hence the translation...

概要:  児童は教室内を歩き回って、いつが相手の誕生月かをお互いに聞きあうゲームです
 
必要な教材:
  • WhenIsYourBirthdayのプリント:Patrick'sかVishal'sの2つのオプションがあります
:
  1. まず、いくつかの月を言って、その月生まれの児童たちにまとまって立ってもらう。他の児童たちは"When is your birthday?"と質問する。立っている児童たちは"It`s in (month)."と答える。
  2.  次に、児童たちは立って教室の内を歩き回って出会った児童ジャンケンをする。勝ったほうは“When is your birthday?”と聞き、負けた児童の名前をプリントの適切な枠内に書く。 注意: 名前を英語で書くように促してください。
  3. 児童はパートナーを変えてもう一度、ジャンケンから始める。
  4. 児童はプリントを完成させるまで繰り返す。または興味を無くすまで続ける。

 

推薦を教えること:

  • 2種類のプリント-ES & JHSがありますので、クラスに合ったものを選んで使ってください。
  •  Patrick's worksheetのプリントでは月の横に5マスあります。それらは同じ誕生月の生徒のために加えられました。
