    Thanks.

    The reason why I started this thread is because on other EFL forums activities based upon say, a certain grammar point like the Present Perfect, or Possessive Adjectives are scattered all over the boards, in separate threads.

    This one thread can be for any question or idea, but also for an instructor the put something up and ask for suggestions to make it more adaptable, or have it improved.

    Activity
    Level (usually variable)
    Function/Grammar point
    Age

    I got the idea for one thread on Activities and ideas and comments because of Mrsquirrel's thread about personal pronouns with false beginners.

    Here, instructors can just come to this thread, if they want, to find stuff.


    Just MHO,

    I do appreciate your comments Willy.

    OK - I changed the title.

    Milky, perhaps you would like to start this thread off with something, then I can delete all the off-topic posts (or just all of KW/MrT's).

    well that's more or less what I was trying to say (in perhaps a slightly less polite way!)

    OK, I'll start.

    Activity - Put together the sentences.

    Take a written page of notes or story from a book or just a single paragraph - photocopy it. (I find it helps to print it using large font or double spacing or enlarge it on a photocopier)
    Now using a paper slicer ( scissors take too long ) slice the pages into thin strips of paper such that only single lines of text remain on each piece.
    Place entire page/paragraph into an envelope.

    Repeat as many times as you have student groups.

    The students then receive envelope of paper strips, a blank sheet of paper and a gluestick, the idea is to put the strips back together using the text as a clue.

    Level (usually variable) - almost any level depending in what sort of text you use.

    Function recognizing sentence structure, fosters collaborative work, problem solving, competition - can be a good icebreaker activity.

    Age -
    almost any provided they can read. I've used this with adults on workshops as an introduction to a dry topic and it always works well.

    Maybe you shouldnt have changed the name of the thread Marmite, I can think of tons of fun activities that dont have anything to do with teaching.
