Class theme/topics discussed:
I SPY『○から始まるものなあんだ?』

How did you pick this theme or topic?

How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Pictionary uses drawings to elicit vocabulary from students.

How to play: This game is really easy to set up and play. One student will draw an object on the board and ask a question to the rest of the class to elicit a response based on the drawing. The first student to guess correctly draws the next picture and gets a point for their team.

1. Add a time limit.
2. Limit the amount of guesses the students can have.
3. Draw the picture s-l-o-w-l-y.

Why or why not?
Intermediateと同じ内容のクラスでしたが、Advancedのクラスというだけあって、Vocabの幅が広かった。また、クラスの物を対象にして“I SPY”している時、細かい所までよく見ているなあと感心させられた。クラスに(なぜか)松葉づえがずっとおいてあって、前に『松葉づえ』という単語を教えたら、忘れずに覚えていたようでI SPYゲームで使っていた。ヒントを聞く際にもみんなを困らせるようなヒントをだし、とても楽しんでいた。対象物をクラス以外のもの、たとえばスーパーだったり、駅だったり、映画館だったり。テーマを自ら決めてI SPYするのは本当に盛り上がった。
