Review activities for Hi, friends! 1
Lesson 1 Hello!
Lesson 1 is about greetings and introducing yourself. There are also international greetings.
Review lesson 1 with:
- someone else's name activity
- the teacher saying international greetings, the students remembering which country and trying the greeting themselves.
Lesson 2 I'm happy.
Lesson 2 is about replying to the "How are you?" question.
In every school I've taught at, this is part of the greeting at the start of every class. I assume this is that case at your school too and if not, why not implement it so students get daily review here.
Lesson 3 How many?
Lesson 3 is learning to ask "How many apples?" and answering.
Review lesson 3 with:
- the "How many fingers?" game
- students asking the teacher a few "How many ~?" questions they think of themselves. This is a really good follow up to the above game to reinforce the communication element of "How many ~?"
Lesson 4 I like apples.
In lesson 4 students say what they like and ask their friends if they like it too (or if they like a certain thing).
Review lesson 4 with:
Lesson 5 What do you like?
Lesson 6 What do you want?
Lesson 6 grammar changes from like to want. Students enquire about what others want and reply.
Review lesson 6 with:
- Give 'em what they want game
- The stationary shuffle
