Music – Conversation cards (Elementary)

Cards - MusicIt’s been a tough week as I started teaching an intensive course to 10 and 12-year-olds on the topic of music. I’m making all the class materials myself. There is one more week to go and I thought of designing some conversation cards around the topics that I introduced in the classroom to help me with the revision. We talked about types of music, various artists, musical instruments and the materials they are made of.
So… if you teach a similar class, maybe the conversation cards below will come in handy.: )
Let me know!
Happy teaching!

‘Should’ – Giving advice

Should - Giving adviceThis is a speaking activity that you can use as freer practice in your one-to-one sessions or as pair work in the classroom if you want to revise or consolidate the use of ‘should’ for giving advice.

Each circle includes a number. Use dice to establish who’s going to read the situation or just choose a number between 1 and 15 and then read the corresponding situation. The other student in the pair will then offer some advice based on the situation. Students can also ask additional questions so they would find out more about the problem. This could develop really nicely into a longer conversation.
