Sugestões de Atividades:
Goals: to practice vocabulary; to practice using descriptive language
A surprise box can provide a lot of fun while reviewing vocabulary. If your
students are learning the names for shapes, put a plastic circle or triangle in
the box. If you're working with classroom objects, put in a crayon, a pencil,
or a piece of chalk. When you're talking about food, use a carrot, a banana,
an apple, or an orange.
Use a large cardboard box with a top on it. Cut a hole in one end. The hole
must be large enough for a student's hand to go in, but not so large that he
or she can see the object inside. (If you prefer, use a bag or a large sock.)
Put an object inside the box and fasten the cover. Let individual students
reach inside the box, feel the object, and try to guess what it is.
As students learn more English, ask them to describe the object before
naming it.
For example:
"It's little. It's square. It's an eraser."
Students might also describe the object and ask the rest of the class to
guess what it is. An alternative would be for the class to ask questions of
the student at the front to try to guess the object.
As students become more proficient at identifying items, place more than
one in the box.
