There was a request to include additional points in my class openings:
- How's the Weather?
- How are you?
- Today is....
Materials: Weather, Days and Months Flashcards to be posted on blackboard; Feelings flashcards.
Blackboard materials are to be posted by Class Leaders before
class begins. In the beginning, ALT leads Listening and Repeating, but over time this is to be done by Class Leaders.
Teacher to Students- Listen and Repeat (some or all)
Hello, Hi, Hey, Howdy, G’day, Good Morning, Hola, Aloha, Bon Jour, Bon Dia, Bon Journo, Ni Hao, Konnichiwa, Anyohaseyo, Sambaino, Kiola, Selamat Pagi (am) (pm-Siang), Shalom, Jambo, Asalamalekum, Zzdrastvet-yah, Namaste.
How’s the Weather? -2 minutes
Materials- Weather flashcards
Blackboard- How’s the Weather? (flashcard)
ALT- Ask Ss, “How’s the weather?”, then go thru each flashcard, saying each to ask Ss, ‘Cloudy? Windy? Sunny?’. Post the right flashcard on the blackboard. (Ordering the flashcards before beginning so that day's weather is the last card allows you to go through all the flashcards for practice every time.)
Students- As time goes on, give the flashcards to the class leaders and let them do the activity.
How Are You?- 2 minutes
Materials- Feelings flashcards
Blackboard- How are you? (flashcard)
ALT (later, class leaders)- ‘How are you?’, then one feelings flashcard at a time- students raise their hands and Listen and Repeat, “I am OO.”
Students- Raise hands for your feelings when card is called out, then repeat “I am OO.”
Today’s Day and Date- 2 minutes
Materials- Day and Month flashcards
Blackboard- Today is... (flashcard)
Class leaders- Put the day’s flashcards on the blackboard.
ALT & Students- later, class leaders and students- Listen & Repeat “Today is Monday, June 28.”
