What Makes Our Lessons Different?
Teachers Save Time
Reduce lesson planning and gain freedom in the classroom. With all students busy, the teacher can casually roam around the classroom and offer assistance wherever needed.
Students Learn by Doing
Minutes after beginning each lesson, classes often become noisy. At times, very noisy. Why? Students, in pairs or small groups, actively engage in completing the lesson task. They use English to learn English.
Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing
Oral communication is important. Listening and speaking have priority in our lessons; students need to carefully listen to each other. Reading is also important for the success of the lessons. The amount of writing required varies.
Fun for Teachers & Students
We believe students learn better when having fun. Our lessons range from silly to serious but each has a solid task-specific educational goal including grammar usage, vocabulary building and fluency improvement to name a few.
The Sun Vs. Wind - May 25, 2015Lesson Collection #3 - Lesson 14g
The final lesson in this series encourages students to listen carefully in order to spot errors in English grammar and syntax.
There are three sections on this worksheet, A, B & C. Each section has nine sentences and each sentence is exactly the same except that only one of them uses correct English; the other two have one mistake each.
Students, in groups of three, have to discover who has the grammatically correct sentence. Many of the errors are with missing or incorrect articles (a, an or the), a dropped (or unnecessarily added) "s" or inaccurate verbs.
By working closely together, and listening carefully, students can easily identify the incorrect sentences simply by comparing the three.
There is even a "built in" confirmation with this lesson; once students have finished, they insert the code and hopefully will spell out the title: Sun vs Wind.
There are five similar lessons available. They are:
Sour Grapes (see Lesson 14a above)
The Lazy Grasshopper (See Lesson 14b above)
The Smart Crow (See Lesson 14c above)
The Clever Fox (See Lesson 14d above) -and-
The Greedy Dog (See Lesson 14e above) -and-
The Silly Crab (See Lesson 14f above).
