The months wheel
After a short round up about months, seasons and weather, the students empowered their speakin, writing and reading with their birthdays' month. They create a wheel with the twelve months, divided in four seasons: they decided the shape, the colours and how…
The result is the months wheel.
They use it to show other mates their birthday:
· ”My birthday is in April. My birthday is on the 2nd of April. April is in Spring”
· “When is your birthday?”
After using the first and second person with the proper possessive adjectives (just studied in their mother tongue) each student chose a Playmobyl character.
They have to use properly the third person singular (He/she) and plural ( they) with the right possessive adjectives.
They put the characters on a month on the wheel and introduce him, her or them to the mates. Fun activity for a better fluency in speaking.
After this, using the word bank, they write the previous sentences on a” birthday announcement.” Each group has a writer for the wall poster and a speaker.
They listened to each other catching informations: everyone paid attention!
The last step: a game! Guess who has birthday in June? And in April? They liked the activity very much.
