Crazy Cut-Up Conversations
This idea is a fun one for beginners. The day before, have your students write a simple conversation. Example: At the store, At the restaurant, At the DoctorŽs office, etc. Then take their written conversation home and type them up. After printing out the conversations, cut them up line by line. Put each conversation in an envelope and have small groups re-organize the conversation by placing each sentence of the conversation in the proper order.
HINT- Conversations work well set up like a play script.
Mr. White: Good Morning, Mrs. Smith, can I help you?
Mrs. Smith: Yes, IŽd like some potatoes and rice.
The students enjoy the challenge and have fun working as a team. Have them race to finish for extra fun!
