- So to start with, for the younger ones the expressions are introduced with an ACTION-SONG.
- I then usually get them to play SNAP with CHORES CARDS seeing if they can think of a complete sentence using this expression, perhaps adding a little fun by ringing a bell for the first person who can think of a sentence. (Get students to draw pictures to illustrate the CHORES CARDS)
- Every time they turn a card they have to throw one or more dice and create sentences accordingly.
- Finally I show them a film with questions to verify how many of the expressions they remember. The film is about a boy voluntarily carrying out a lot of household chores for a specific reason. It’s very touching.
The results are surprising: students are constantly engaged, having fun and learning a lot!
