My mini blackboards!
One of the things I bought for my mini school a few months ago was a "mini blackboard". You can easily find one of those in any R$1,99 store. Actually I got two of them in order to use in class when I have two private students studying at the same time. Last Wednesday I made use of those boards and it was a nice activity. I was teaching "feelings", such as: hungry, sad, tired, thirsty, etc. So I told them I'd mime one of those and they were supposed to find out what I was feeling. All they had to do was to write in their "mini blackboards" (dont forget you need chalks,too!) the word related to what I was miming.But they couldn't look at each other's answers and they couldn't change them either, you know, just like certain game shows on tv! Remember that any extra material you bring to class can improve your lesson and get your students even more motivated about what they're learning. Have a beautiful Sunday, colleague!
