Daily Questions Row Column Game (JHS)
Name of Teacher: Bob George
Class/Grade/Language Level: JHS
Textbook and specific lesson: daily questions
Goal: practicing basic questions; warm-up; test review
Preparation: a sheet of daily questions
Class time: 5-10 minutes
Using a sheet of daily questions created by the JET’s, I ask the students questions. After raising their hands and being chosen(either by me or the JET) the student answers. If correct, they can choose their row-mates or column-mates to sit down with them. The students are tested several times throughout the year on their knowledge of the daily questions (through conversation tests conducted by me), so making practice into a game acts as a warm-up and as test practice. As an added bonus students often use the daily questions as a starting point for random conversations with me.
