any good idea for teaching "birthday party"
Hi, there
I am going to teach my ESL students about "birthday party"
Do you have any good idea about it??
the new words in this lesson are birthday cake/ party / surprise / party hat / decoration / balloon / present ......
Can you think of any interesting activities or games???

How about asking the students to go shopping for a birthday party?
If you have pictures of these things, you can mix them up with other things you might find in a store... and then ask the students to make a list and pick them out when they go "shopping"

Another thing you could do is play HANGMAN or a guess the word sort of activity, depending on how old/young your students are.

On a personal note, I love taboo because it involves creativity and thinking.

How old are your Ss? If they īre small you could show them Peppa Pig - very sweet cartoons which last 5-10 min - there are a couple of birthday party episodes.

For example "Daddy Pig īs Birthday" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1O8sV4u_CGA
