Based on a variety show game.
-Something for students to write on (I use tablets, but whiteboards or notebooks can also be used.)
・Students form groups based on columns. (For small classes, 3-4 ss per column works.)
・Show students the demonstration slide. Hopefully this is visual enough to be self-explanatory but I would demo with the practice slide.
・On the practice slide, there are two cards on the trees. The green one leads you to 2nd year's when/if sentences, whereas the blue spades leads
to 3rd year's ~makes... sentences.
・Show the example of how the sentences will look on the practice slide.
・Explain that the other students have to use telepathy to guess the first row students' answers and if they each manage to guess correctly for their
team, they each get a point.
・After the let's start slide, the sentences appear with blanks that are filled with the category name.
・Setting a minute, I make sure the first row wrote their answer and check on the other ss if they look like they need help.
・Once the minute is up, I go to each student from ex. A team, and then ask the first row A team member to reveal their answer.
・I count how many got it right, and write it on the board.
・Repeat the same step for the following teams.
Feel free to add or subtract slides according to your class.
For my 3rd years, I didn't stress how correctly they wrote their answers as much as how they read the whole sentence. For example, A team's Asami wrote "Ramen" for her answer, so the other team members would say "Ramen makes Asami happy", or "Parfait makes Asami happy". Then Asami would say her answer at the end, "Ramen makes me happy."
For 2nd years, the sentences were too long, so I just had A team say their answers and then Asami would say her answer following the sentence, "When I'm hungry, I eat Ramen."
