3rd Grade: I can Swim Parts 1 and 2

Friday, November 03, 2006


Due to vacation and other delays like picnics and stuff I have to get through the last two chapters in 1 month when the curriculum says I should take two.

I can Swim.
1. I'll first go through the dialogues in the book and then show flashcards of people swimming/skiing/playing soccer etc and ask kids things they can do and they can't do.
2. Then I'll show a picture of a bear/alien/mouse/ and a fairy and ask things that they can do and can't do.
3. I'm going to jump ahead to Look and Listen 2 and Listen and Repeat 2 in the book.
4. Chant.

Help Me, please!

Help! Help! Help me, please.

Help! Help! Help me, please.

Wait! Wait! I'm coming.

Wait! Wait! I'm coming.

Help me, please.

I'm coming.

Help me, please.

I'm coming.

Help me, please.

I'm coming.

Whew!

(Repeat.)



GAME:
I can/I can't charades. Kids have to mime out things they can and can't do and the class has to guess. I would have to do this by incorporating many of the words I taught in the lesson. I figure that the "I can't swim" or "I can't run" will be a bit challenging to decipher and it'll get some laughs.

Split them into teams and only the team can guess. They have 20 seconds to act out the word.
