Let's Talk About Smartphones

Students learn some useful phrases regarding smartphones, and then they write about if they think smartphones are good or bad.

I didn't want to do the telephone dialogue in the textbook as I think it's becoming obsolete since smartphones have taken over. Instead, I made this sheet to show how we connect with others on a smartphone.

I also used this lesson to talk about the danger of strangers and that they should only use social media with their friends/people they know.

Part 1 - Learn some fun phrases on the front side of the paper.
Part 2 - Answer this question on the back: "Smartphones and social media have become very popular. Is this good or bad? Why?"
There are some positive/negative clipart pictures and a box of words to give them some writing ideas.

The third page is my writing example that I read and then kept up as they were writing.

      The Irasutoya dangers-of-smartphones images make me chuckle. Watch where you're goin', buddy!

      Same! There were so many good ones that I had a tough time choosing which ones to use
