Collocations, the building blocks of language
Transcript of Collocations, the building blocks of language
the building blocks of language
Presenter: Jason R. Levine
the building blocks of language
Design a classroom activity for learning and practicing collocations. You can
incorporate any materials that you wish (those you create yourself, materials you
find in textbooks, on the internet, etc.) and may design the activity for any group
of learners (any age, level, class size, class length, etc).
Please be sure to carefully consider who your learners are and design your
activity with their needs and interests firmly in mind.
To do this assignment, you may simply summarize your activity in a paragraph or
two, create a lesson plan-style procedure, or use more elaborate tools and
materials. It depends on how much time you have and how inspired you feel!
The class is composed by 11 boys and 8 girls. They are 8 years old.
They are a heterogeneous group with difference grades in their competence in English language.
A small group (3 members)has a high competence for their age, a big group has a good competence, only two students present difficulties in learning English.
Silvia is mildly cognitively impaired. She can speak with difficulty and can remember words only several repetitions and a massive exposure
Luca is a dyslexic boy.
He needs learning methods that fit his thinking style.
The teacher has to always make learning as multisensory as possible (See it, Hear it, Say it, Write it, Type it , Draw it, Act it out!)
Luca needs that words are visualised and represented in stricking pictures, then repeated a lot of times.
Students have to learn words expressing feelings.
Students will be able to talk about their feelings and say how they feel.
Students will be able to ask how people are feeling.
Students can know how to deal with different feelings in different ways.
Students will be able to understand and appreciate others' feelings even if in contrast with theirs.
Students will be able to use spontaneously collocations speaking about feelings.
Listen to the new words expressing feelings
Let's write feelings words on a wall chart
Look for the correct word
LET'S LEARN HOW TO ASK ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE'S FEELINGS.
LEARN HOW TO ANSWER.
-USE THE QUESTIONS : "HOW ARE YOU, TODAY?"
-TRY TO REPLAY
Let's watch a video
Sometimes I'm happy,
sometimes I'm sad.
Sometimes I'm frustrated,
Sometimes I'm excited!
sometimes I'm bored, don't know what to do.
sometimes I'm shy.
Sometimes I'm embarassed, don't know why.
Sometimes I'm delighted,
sometimes I'm glad.
Sometimes I'm angry,
There your emotions,
let them shine through.
Trust your emotions, they'll help guide you.
There your emotions, let them shine through,
trust your emotions, there a part of you
Let's listen to this song. Then mime the words coloured in yellow.
Let's draw : "How are you now?"
Show your picture to your classmates, they have to guess your feelings.
Luca and Silvia could also watch the video on their computers reading subtitles which were previously added on the video for them. In this way, they will feel more comfortable when the teacher hands out the sheets with the written song.

How are you today?
*paper, scissors, pencils, crayons,
felt tip pens.
In group children have to prepare a dialogue in which some characters they like are speaking of their feelings. Then they will act their scene for classmates.
