Have you planned the last lesson before Christmas yet? If not, here are a few suggestions that we hope will bring out the Christmas spirit in the classroom. Have fun!
Music – A Sure Thing
Nothing brings out the Christmas feeling quite like music. Here is a light-harted music quiz for that very last lesson. We wish you a melodic December and all the best for 2018!
It May Be Old, But It’s New To Your Students
Have a look at our suggestions from previous years:
Two Truths and a Lie, With a Christmas Twist
Students love playing “Two Truths and a Lie”. The game is easy to play, and it does not require any preparation. It is a fun game, where everyone gets to participate.
Who am I?
“Who am I” is probably familiar for most teachers. Still, it is a fun game where all your students engage orally, in a festive competition. You may choose to play the game with the whole class together, or you can divide into smaller groups.
Are You Looking for a Suitable Christmas Text?
Food as a Bearer of Tradition
If you teach vocational English, you may be familiar with the text “Food as a Bearer of Tradition” from “SKILLS Restaurant og matfag”
If not, we suggest that you order a free trial period of the Smartbok. Use a projector to share the pages with you class, click on the audio icon, and listen!
The Blue Carbuncle
You may also want to check out the story “The Blue Carbuncle”.
This is one of Sherlock Holmes’s famous adventures. It is set on the day after Boxing Day in Victorian London. At this time, most people had a goose for Christmas dinner rather than a turkey. In this story, a certain Mr Henry Baker has lost both his goose and his hat on his way home and, without realizing it, put the solution to a major crime in the hands of the master detective, Sherlock Holmes!
Most of the story can be found in SKILLS RM page 61. The ending is a listening exercise. You will need to log in to the teachers resource to hear the ending, or you may just read from the manuscript.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
