What's this? (ES, any grade)
Name of Teacher: James Pashley
Class/Grade/Language Level: ES, any grade
Textbook and specific lesson: Can be used after students know "What's this?" and "It's a/an ..." phrases
Goal: Practice vocabulary
Using familiar vocabulary, this is a simple guessing game. Usingthe board draw a line at a time and ask, “what’s this?” after each one. The students must guess and call out using “It’s a ~ (It’s an ~)!”. The winner gets the chalk and draws the next object eg. Cat, boat, monkey, etc. Introducing dramatic phrases such as “I don’t know, help me!” can liven it up further.
