Valentine's Day

Lesson Time Length:
N/A
Lesson Point:

Lesson Plan:

Some pictures, worksheets, and activities related to Valentine's Day. They can be used as is, or to make karuta cards, or other activities.

Board Game

Lesson Time Length:
40-50 min
Lesson Point:
Speaking
Lesson Plan:

This is good for high school, English Club, and eikaiwa classes.

Materials:
Board game
Game pieces (I usually use foreign coins)
Dice

What to do:
Make a board game with different questions and topics in each square, or questions tailored to a specific topic or subject. You can change the level depending on who you will use the game with. If the questions are fairly easy, you can ask 1st year to say only 1 sentence for each, 2nd years to say 2 sentences, and 3rd years to say 3 sentences, or tailor it depending on the class. For high level eikaiwa you can ask them to speak as much as possible about the topic.

The first person in each group to reach the finish will win. Groups of 4 to 6 people are good, depending on class size. The fewer people, the more chance each student will have to speak.

Even my classes that are not interested in English enjoyed this. I also told them that if the JTE or I heard them speaking Japanese they would have to go back to the start. I mostly just gave them warnings rather than send them back, but it did encourage them to try to use English.
