*Great speaking and listening activity for ESL students during the first weeks of class, and beyond. This bundle includes 7 think-pair-shares to get your students talking and moving around the classroom.
Each t-p-s is a 2-page, or double sided, handout of 10 questions (1 student created), and is a great speaking activity for English learning students to engage with one another. After previewing topic and related vocabulary, ask students to interview one another about the specific questions listed on the handout. You can make a rule that students are not allowed to ask the same student more than one question to ensure that there is movement in the class.
After the activity is complete, you can even ask students to present on information they learned from their classmates in an impromptu presentation. I always ask students to pick 1 interesting answer they heard and prepare to share the answer and why it is interesting with the class. Print in landscape mode with .5'' margins for best results.
5 Think-Pair-Share topics in BUNDLE: Non-traditional introductions, first week of school, family, travel, person admired, summer, and end of class (preview topic and vocabulary in handout prior to activity)
Level: intermediate beginner and above
