Middle School Hobbies Pictionary

Here’s this week’s lesson plan, but first, a bit of explanation: there’s only a lesson plan for the first graders, since the second graders are doing their oral tests this week. Next week the first graders will have their oral tests. It will be on their hobbies. So, this week’s lesson will incorporate a bit of lesson 10 – The Use of Timestamps – and their Hobbies Lesson from a while ago. Essentially we’re playing Pictionary. The class is divided into three teams. One person from each team will come up to draw what’s on the card I show them. It will include a timestamp (such as Always, Sometimes, Often, Never, etc) and one of the hobbies from the gamecards a while ago (Cooking, Dancing, Singing, etc). First team to guess it wins a point. Hooray! Loads of fun. When we run through the cards, we play a sentence completion game. They’re now in the mood to get up at the boards and perform, so in this game we keep it going. On the monitor I pop up three words and they have to make a sentence out of them. One of the words is almost always a timestamp. First one to write a proper sentence with no mistakes wins. Huzzah!

  1. Please please please, pretty pretty please, could you upload all those marvelous lesson plan, handout, powerpoint, explanation and all the esl goodies? I would be forever grateful (and in your debt). I also saw that others are requesting them in other post related to esl content on the website, then I wouldn’t be alone in all my gratefulness towards your awesomeness!

      • God, I’m such a lunatic, forget what I said earlier, it seems to work fine. The only thing that does not is the “http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/category/esl-lessons”.

          Thanks for your understanding :)

        • The PC version of 
          http://www.eatyourkimchi.com/how-to-talk-about-music/ gets me to “An error occurred while processing your request” everytime too. It’s also the only one that does that for now, the others ESL lesson tagged post seem to work just fine.

      • Oh, sorry, this one still works, it’s the “previews” that don’t. I’ll recheck elsewhere, but I’m still sure that many other doesn’t work anymore since I’ve tried to get them and miserably failed.

      • They mostly don’t work anymore (throughout the website). The only thing that still does is the picture of the lesson plan in some post, like this one.
