Last week I used two leading questions on the board and found out details about who had gone to movies and games. Kids wanted to be able to tell me what else they’d done, so I asked them all to list three activities they’d participated in that weekend in English in their journals. I made a master list of those and presented them with a chunk of the activities, then went down the list, asking who had…visited a friend, eaten birthday cake, watched a football game (surprisingly, not too many!) or slept a lot. Once we’d talked about a bunch of those, I asked kids to write down three things they’d done or not done this weekend. A couple asked for extra phrases: was sick, went snowboarding, but there was enough for almost everyone, and now they will start having a list. Combining this new list with the super power list, I think we’ll have a lot to talk about.
