Draw Your Name
Beginner Adult Students level
To provide opportunity to discuss their pictures with others.
To provide opportunity to write the simple names of my pictures.
Personal Aim to practice sharing with students to think about timing. I am not sure how long each step will take. How long should I give them to draw their own pictures? 7 minutes?
I will introduce this game and then draw my pictures. The pictures I have selected are sun, hat, ear, leaf, lamp, yellow. I will do this before class begins because it will save time.
I will have them guess the first word. When they guess correctly, that person will be invited to come up and write out the word. They will be able to receive help from the other students.
They will think about their own names and draw pictures for each letter.
They work in pairs since many people may not know many words. I will monitor the class to see if they need some help coming up with words.
I tell the students to arrange themselves by their height. And then split them into pairs. They will discuss their names with each other.
They will introduce their partner to the rest of the class. And tack the drawings on the glass or board.
I will ask the students which pictures were only used by one person. I will ask the students with letter were hard.
