Verbal practice activity: students choose 3 stationery and name it in Mandarin in front of the whole class; next time, students can just share it with their partners
1) Basic matching card game (individual or partner) - match the pictures to the Mandarin phrases as fast as you can; name it in Mandarin as you go
Variation: take turns to say a stationery in Mandarin, the person who names the stationery needs to find the picture, the other person looks for the phrase on the table
2) Memory game - Flip all the cards facing down, take turns with your partner to look at cards (2 at a time). When you find 2 cards (picture + words), you keep them. If they don't match, you put it back down. Game ends when all cards are gone. Person with most pairs win.
3) Teacher facilitated game/competition - teacher calls out stationery in Mandarin, student (in pairs) need to find them as fast as they can and hold them out (without calling out). Allocate points as appropriate. Alternatively, ask students brain questions where you say the stationery in English, and they have to tell you what is is in Mandarin.
Variation: get a student to call out the stationery in English/Mandarin
Worksheet: Cut & paste stationery (pg.2) onto sentence blank space (on pg.3)
PAGE 3 is a worksheet, and page 2 is the required resource that goes with it (There are 4 columns, each student only needs 1 column) You need to cut the columns up before you distribute to students.
这 是 means "This is"
E.g. If student pastes (qiān bǐ 铅笔) onto the first line, they need to think about what stationery it is. In this case, it means pencil. They then need to draw a pencil in the box on the left side of the sentence.
Students cut the stationery out from the column, and paste it onto the lines (in no particular order).
