Welcome to Kirby Cafe!
Practice ordering food and asking about menu prices, featuring Kirby Cafe!

Estimated time: 5~10 minutes per "section"
This is my 5th grade Kirby-themed activity for New Horizons E5 Unit 6 "What would you like?". The menu items are all food and drinks that are or were on the menu at the actual Kirby cafes around the country. The prices are all accurate as well, so students can practice saying bigger numbers in English. It's all way more expensive compared to the textbook examples! lol
This activity is split into three parts: 1) ordering food, 2) asking about the price, and 3) saying the total price of an order with more than one food item. I also added some buttons in slide 2 to skip ahead to the different sections.
I've done this activity over three different class periods in one class as a warm-up after they first learned the key phrase of each section, and all at once as a unit review for most of the class period at another one.
I've also prepared a printable version of the cafe menu so that the kids can reference it for the activity. Of course, you can also send the pdf file to the JTE/HRT and ask them to send it to the students' tablets so you can stay paperless. :) Enjoy!

Woah! This is the cutest! Amazing job.
this is all insanely well done! thank you for sharing! i will definitely make use of this.
i love this, it's too adorable. how do u usually conduct it? by calling on a pair of students to answer out loud, in groups, etc.? i'd love to try this but i'm wondering how i should illicit answers.
*elicit. and i'm supposed to teaching english smh
This is amazing work. Definitely using this!
@autumnhardesty It really depends on the class and how much time the HRT wants my activity to be--when I did it as a quick warm-up I simply asked questions to the entire class and when someone answered it right I got the whole class to repeat it, but in my other class where it was the main thing we did that day, I gave the kids time to discuss their answers in pairs so that everyone would participate.
@autumnhardesty We also did a little role-play practice afterwards using the Kirby Cafe menu instead of the picture dictionary! One student is a customer who orders whatever they want from the menu, and the rest of the class says the price and total.
This is so cute!!! I love it and hope to use it!
Incredible. So cute.
Amazing! Thank you very much!
