BRIEF OUTLINE: Students pass an object around while listening to music. When the music stops, the student holding the object says a target vocabulary.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Music (use upbeat music).
  • Potato item: Paper airplanes, big squeezable die, fake cellphones, crumpled balls of paper. Start the game with one item, then when the students get the hang of it, try adding more items.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Start the music and have the students start passing the ‘potato item'. You might need to explain that they're to pass the timer not sit and play with it or stare at it in wonder.
  2. When the music stops, have the student holding the ‘potato item(s)’ stand up and say one of the target vocabulary words. If you have more than one item in the game, don't allow students to choose the same word.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • For more advanced classes, make the students form sentences, "I like ~," "This is a ~," "This is my ~."
  • Roger's Speak-n-Pass Variation:
    • After teaching the vocabulary, pass each item around the room. When the students receive the item, they must make a sentence. For example, "This is a pencil," and then pass the item to the next student.
    • Do this for all items and then start the review game, which is also extremely simple. Simply ask the students: "What is this?" or "What was #2?"
    • The first team to answer receives a point. Play until you've gone through all the items, or until the class starts getting bored.
    • Materials needed: Flashcards or objects.
  • Aimee's Here You Are Timed Race variation:
    • After having the students sit in a circle, give one student a ball. The student then passes the ball to the person next to them via this simple conversation:
      • S1: "Here you are."
      • S2: "Thank you. Here you are."
      • S3: "Thank you. Here you are."
    • Time how long it takes for the ball to get around the room.
    • Get the students to decide on a faster time and try again.
    • Continue 2-3 times or until you think that the students have reached their fastest time.
    • This game is a confindence booster game. Do not change the order of the students, or you may end up with a slower time and frustrated students.
    • Materials needed: Ball and stopwatch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

概要: 生徒は輪になって座り、音楽を聞いている間、品物を回します。音楽が止まった時、その品物を持っている生徒は目標語彙を言います。

 

必要な教材

  • 音楽:軽快な音楽を使ってください。
  • ポテトアイテム - 紙飛行機、大きくて柔らかいサイコロ、おもちゃの携帯電話、紙を丸めたボールなど。ゲームを1つのアイテムで始めてください、そして、生徒がこつをつかんだら、回すアイテムを増やしてみてください。

 

手順

  1. 音楽をかけて、学生にポテトアイテム(品物)を手渡し始めさせる。生徒にそれらが品物を渡すことであるのを説明する必要があるかもしれない。
  2. 音楽が止まったら品物を持っている生徒を立たせて目標語彙の1つを言わせる。同じ生徒がまた品物を持ったら、同じ語を選ばせないで、違う語を言わせる。

 

バリエーション

  • 上級クラスの生徒には、"I like ~ " "This is a ~ " "This is my ~ " のような文を作らせてみてください。
  • Roger's Speak-n-Pass バリエーション:
    • After teaching the vocabulary, pass each item around the room. When the students receive the item, they must make a sentence. For example, "This is a pencil," and then pass the item to the next student.
    • Do this for all items and then start the review game, which is also extremely simple. Simply ask the students: "What is this?" or "What was #2?"
    • The first team to answer receives a point. Play until you've gone through all the items, or until the class starts getting bored.
    • Materials needed: Flashcards or objects.
  • Aimee's Here You Are Time Raced バリエーション:
    • 児童の順番を決めてから、下記の会話をしながら1個のボールと回す。 となりの人にあげる。この会話がある:
      • S1: "Here you are."
      • S2: "Thank you. Here you are."
      • S3: "Thank you. Here you are." など
    • ボールが全員に回すまでの時間を計る。
    • 次回の目標タイムを決め、再挑戦する。
    • 達成感を与えるように目標タイムを決め、同じ順番で数回挑戦する。
    • 必要な教材:ボールとストップウォッチ。
