With the goal of eliciting a response of "Me too.", students walk around and talk to many different students in the class. Use this activity to practice using "I like ~." or "I don't like ~."
|Level:||Elementary, grade 5 - 6|
|Works with:||I like, I don't like|
|Class size:||Medium to large|
You will need:
- Students walk around and find a speaking partner. Paper, scissors, rock.
- The winner gets the chance to collect a "Me too." The winner says "I (don't) like apples."
- The loser responds honestly with either "Me too" (in which case the winner gets 1 point) or "I see." (no points).
- Goodbye and repeat.
- In the case the loser doesn't agree, there are various responses, based on how you want to do it. Possible suggestions:
- I see (The easiest, coverall response.)
- I (don't) like something else.
- Not me.
- Ask students how many "Me too's" they got to finish the activity.
- The response is perhaps the hardest part, so making this more difficult should only be attempted with confident students.
