ESL class on May 7

June 1st, 2011 by Julienne Hoffman · No Comments · Uncategorized

I was unable to teach ESL this Saturday because I had a paper due on Monday and my sisters were visiting me.  However, I planned the lesson with Claire so she could teach it alone.  We decided we wanted to return to the past tense because we had discussed it earlier, but it became to overwhelming with all the irregular verbs.  We decided to play hangman with verbs that are irregular in the past tense.  We made a list of there words to give out to them, which Claire would choose from and use it for hangman.  Once they guessed the word, Claire would do the word in past tense for hangman and they would have to guess.  Mari told us about this game and we really liked it because it helped with spelling, past conjugation and made the game more difficult.  Then we planned to make sentences using verbs in the present tense and then changing them to the past tense.
