Speaking / Listening Activity #1: Task Cards
There are 24 Task Cards included. (If you have more than 24 students, simply print more copies.)
Students will work in pairs. One student will ask partner questions
from his/her task card and then switch. (For example: Student A will ask
partner questions from Task Card 1A. Then the partner will ask questions
from Task Card 1B.) Each pair of task cards (For example: Task 1A and 1B)
has the same picture, but different questions.
Speaking / Listening Activity #2: Find the Differences
Students will work in pairs. Each will have a picture of a house. Each picture will have some differences. Students will compare the 2 pictures to determine the differences. Students can write the differences on their papers OR just practice speaking and listening. Depending on the level of students, pairs can look at each other’s paper (option A) OR hide the paper from their partner (option B). Option B will require students to ask and answer questions. (For example: “Is there a cup in the microwave?”)
: Students can use these vocabulary lists as an introduction or review of house vocabulary. Students can also label the parts of the house for extra practice.
