1) a powerpoint with the printable cards on it. There are 80 characters. You can print it front and back because there is a design for the back (so it's not see-through) There are 10 cards per page, so in all, it's only 8 pages.
I laminated and cut them.
that part was easy.. it was putting together all the pictures and descriptions that took forever T~T but you don't have to do that haha
1) Each student gets one character card in the beginning (it's a secret from their classmates).
2) The card has the character's name, a rock-paper-scissors symbol in the middle, and three sentences (the 1年 version), or what it is -a dog, a human, an alien, etc.- and two sentence options (3年). 3rd grade must make the sentence by using the card -> "Hello Kitty is a cat who lives in London" but they can choose between the two options. 1st graders only have to read the 3 sentences.
UPDATE: I've added one more version for 1年. It's for gerunds. They have to read two sentences on each card, but change the verb to -ing form.
3) Basically, they will walk around ad introduce their characters to each other. Both people have to read the card to each other before they say "1..2...3..." and show their cards to each other. Whichever person beats their opponents card at rock, paper, scissors gets their opponent's card.
4) I have the deck of extras sitting at the front of the room. If students lose their only card, they can draw another one from the deck and keep playing.
5) After 5 minutes, ask the students how many cards they have. The person with the most cards is the winner, and I give them prize stickers.
The large cards in the powerpoint are so you can print two large ones to demonstrate with your JTE.
The students REALLY liked this activity. They kept wanting to play it again and again, but it's good practice for reading / using the grammar points too, so I think it was really fun.
