FOR anyone teaching 6th Grade Elementary English in Korea – this is for you!
MY 6th graders have a speaking test this Thursday and my CT requested a worksheet that covered lessons 10 & 11 from our text book – What Do You Think? and Who Drew This Picture? – that could be completed while students do the speaking test one-on-one.
I took this opportunity to review a few bits and bobs that continue to trip them up – namely question words and days of the week.
I’VE attached the worksheet and the answer sheet below.
YOU’LL notice that the Lesson 10 part of the worksheet has not right answers. This is because it depends entirely on the students.
THE general idea is that the first three parts of the Lesson 10 section will look something like this:
A: I think it’s fun. What do you think?
B: I don’t think so. I think it’s boring.
A: I think it’s expensive. What do you think?
B: I don’t think so. I think it’s cheap.
I’m using the text book vocabulary here, but you get the idea. My students were much more creative with this and used a wide range of vocabulary, along with corssing out text where needed:
A: I think it’s exciting. What do you think?
B: I think so.
I think it’s .
The last two parts of the Lesson 10 section are identical, both talking about TV. I wanted my students to write in one why TV was good and in the other why TV was bad, again calling on the text book expressions.
ALL in all this is a really fun. simply activity that the students enjoyed. We let them use their text books and notebooks if they needed them, but encouraged them to go without. We also encouraged them to help each other before they turned to their textbooks. All in all, they did a super job and we’re really proud of them!
