What worked well in this class? What did not work?

Things that worked well:

My Intermediate group was really creative and they came up with super funny ideas:

Group 1: Given words: MOO, 大白, driver, restaurant, Snow, Moon

MOO met 大白 in a restaurant. They fell in love on the first sight. One day they walked pass a lottery station and brought one and won 5million dollars. So they brought an airplane and flew to the moon and got married…

Group 2: Given words: Moo, 嫦娥, Mars, Jupiter, waiter

嫦娥 met Moo on Mars and there was a bad guy (the waiter) who wanted to stole their money. They ended up with a fight on Jupiter. And the bad guy was defeated…

Things that did not work:

The class went pretty well! We had a lot of fun. Some of the words that students came up with (like 火星 Mars, 木星 Jupiter etc.) were not familiar by the others, so I wrote them down on the blackboard, but it was a bit time consuming. Next time I’ll ask if they need new word in advance and write them down before their show.

If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that).  Please attach any handouts as well.
