The students have just finished their summative assessment for their unit "accent impacts the message we communicate". The students have regularly practised their accent and pronunciation and they have also learned a huge amount of questions, vocabulary and phrases. So, today I though that it would be a good opportunity to take these skills and knowledge and adapt them to new situations and allow students the opportunity to be creative.
I already have some props and costumes in my classroom and this morning I raided my son's chest of toys for additional fun items to bring into school. I laid the props out in preparation for the arrival of the students and wrote out the vocabulary ready for them to use.
Next, I organised the students into groups and they started to create their dialogues. As always, the students were super creative and among the scenarios we had a dialogue at the train station that was performed with puppets, and a dialogue for buying food in a shop where the shopkeeper was robbed and they had to call the police.
