All About Me
I prepared this activity to get the grade 3 level kids to practice the material before their exam. It includes all the topics except weather and directions (since they have a good handle on that), but it is editable so you can change it. These self-intro type activities go over well in Korea. Also, at the end of each studentīs speech, I ask questio...

I have used this on my adult students and they really appreciate it. All tenses. The answers are in MC format so students donīt have to formulate the answer.

This jeopardy game MUST be resaved as Macros enabled. I save it here as ppt, but it must be resaved as ppm (macro enable). You can find it in the drop down menu when you go to save it.
