Descriptions

April 18th, 2011 by Maya Dougherty · No Comments · Uncategorized

Last night in class we worked on teaching words that are used to describe people. We cut out pictures of people from a magazine, and then had our students use some of the new words we had taught them in order to describe the people in the pictures. We then had each student choose one picture, and write a brief description of that person, such as what their name is, how old they are, what they look like, and how they act. We then had them read their descriptions out loud. I thought that this was a particularly good activity, because it got them to practice both writing and speaking. We also reviewed words for body parts, and played Simon says and hangman. Overall I think that the class went fairly well, and that it will continue to get a bit easier to teach one we know who is consistently going to show up to the class, and what levels they are at.
