Share link to lesson Jamboard. Say: Hi class, today we have a very special lesson. We will be using the same text as Lorena’s lesson but, instead of talking about the weather, we are going to be learning new phrases to describe likes and dislikes. Instructions: First, I am going to send you to your breakout rooms. I want you to quickly read through this list of items and decide whether you like or dislike them, then discuss your answers with your partner. You have 2 minutes. Topics: cold weather hot weather swimming picnics (eating outside) snakes cooking photography (taking pictures) Instructions: Next, we are going to go over our answers by playing a game. It’s called “Like or Dislike.” I am going to say one of the topics you just discussed, and you will give thumbs up if you like it, and thumbs down if you dislike it. Ready? Let’s begin. Let students vote on each item/phrase. If time allows, ask a few students at random to quickly say what they like/dislike about a particular topic. Conduct OCFB
