Welcome to Kirby Cafe!

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

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!

      @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.

      my kids enjoyed this a lot! I took out some of the prices and printed it out to have the kids guess how much the item is. Some were real surprised it was so expensive or cheap (bread lol).

    22. Furachan September 29, 2023

      Wow! Never mind the students,I just want to eat all the stuff on the menu! Well done!!

    23. Gaijingaiden November 21, 2023

      This is pretty good. I'm going to adjust it a bit and try it with my SN class.

    24. LyricaLottie November 28, 2023

      This looks amazing! I'm going to use it as inspiration to make a Pokemon cafe-themed lesson for my JHS 1nen class.

      THIS IS SO WELL MADE AND AMAZING!!!!! My base school is a JHS, but once a week I teach 1-on-1 lessons at a hospital school and this is perfect for my ES student there. I showed my OTE at JHS, who loves video games & tech & KIRBY and he was blown away!!! Even though I won't get a chance to use it in his class, we both just wanted to say THANK YOU for all your hard work and creating this awesome lesson!!!
