How Does She Look?
|junior high school second year to third year||To practice, "How does s/he/it look?" "S/he/it looks ___".||Adverbs||10 mins||Lots of clippings of people from magazines from your country.|
Each row / lunch group is a team. Have all the students stand. You simply ask the question, "How does s/he/it look?" and show them a picture. The first student to raise their hand may answer the question. If they answer correctly they may sit down. If not, the next student to raise their hand may try. If students are reticent in raising their hands select them via the use of 'Volunteer Cards' (numbers 1 - 40 on individual cards), or by throwing a soft object for them to catch (the student on their right/left/etc.). Continue in this vein, showing a different picture each time, until one entire team is sitting. These students are your winners.
To make this activity more challenging (harder), write each adverb on the board as it is used, and forbid the use of it again. Another variation is to let the student who answered the question, choose the next picture and ask, "How...?"
A word of warning. Some JTEs view ALTs as relief teachers, and will doze off at the back of the class if you let them. Whether you feel happy with this arrangement or not, your role is to ASSIST in a team teaching effort with the JTE, and this means joint planning of lessons as well as joint teaching. Don't allow yourself to be assigned the job of planning and teaching all team teaching lessons alone; whether you prefer it that way or not!
