My next topic that I want to work on is Baseball. Here's the idea. I will draw a baseball diamond on the board and get them to tell me the positions like 1st base, 2nd, 3rd, shortstop etc.
I should get some images of Korean Baseball players. Maybe a song? Take me out to the ballgame?
I think it would work (but, I have to get it to work by next class...).
The idea is to teach Abbott and Costello's Who's on first. Time for this exercise should be about 20 minutes but it could stretch to 30 minutes. I think I could get half the class to read for Abbott and the other half to read for Costello.
Would they get the jokes? I think they would as long as I explain them. I could throw a ball and get them to yell out what positions people are at.
I think this project would work for the my 5/6th grade classes, but my 3rd will be a problem. I don't know what to do for them....I could do sports, but I need to make something simplier for them.
I think I can do baseball and do the pronounciation game that David was telling me about. I should focus on phonetics with them and vocabulary and get them to play a game or two based on baseball.
Let's hope my plans work.
