SAY IT!!



Tid: 15-20 minutter


Mål: Øve vokabular, grammatikk, innholdsforståelse.
Dette brettspillet går ut på at hver spiller har to kast med terningen. Med første kastet går spilleren bortover, og med det andre går han nedover det antall ruter som terningen viser.
Spilleren svarer så godt han eller hun kan på spørsmålet i ruten. Man kan velge å gi poeng for svarene , for eksempel 5 poeng for et godt svar og 0 poeng hvis spilleren ikke kan svare. Det er ikke alltid det finnes et riktig eller et galt svar, og her må læreren fungere som konsulent.

På forhånd kan man avtale en viss tid man skal spille, for eksempel 15 minutter og så summere poengene når tiden er ute.

Man kan selvfølgelig spille uten poeng og unngå vinnere og tapere i spillet.
Når en spiller har gjort sine to kast, overtar neste spiller.

Spillerne kan bruke samme rute om igjen flere ganger.


Det er svært viktig at engelsk brukes hele tiden under spillet.

”Straff” for å bruke norsk: Stå over et kast.

4.6 Working with passages from the book.
Asking and answering questions.
Copy two passages from the book for example p. 21 about Mary discovering the key to the secret garden and p. 29 about Mary meeting Collin for the first time.
Step 1.

Split the class into groups (two or more) and give each group one of the passages.


Step 2.

Each group works together reading their own passage, and discussing its place in the story so far. Any questions concerning the vocabulary should be resolved at this stage.

Step 3.

Tell each group to make up questions to the passage they have just read. Their questions may be on the actual passage or on the context surrounding the passage.

Step 4.

Tell the groups to exchange the passages and the questions they have made.


Step 5

Each group read the new passage and try to answer the questions the other group have made.


4.7 Making up the story based on illustrations
The Secret Garden in the Ladybird series comes with 12 colourful illustrations to the story. These illustrations may serve as cue cards for telling the story as it is presented in the book, or as a pre-reading activity to the story before the pupils actually read or listen to the story.
