Age: 11 -13
Number of SS: 9.
Goal: To read actively.
The teacher’s first step is to read the text and prepare some questions related to it.
I prepared ten questions and printed two sets, one green and one red. Then, the questions were cut in slips.
The students were divided in two groups. They got their books and sat on the corner of the classroom.
Then, one student wrote the answer on the board. Students took turns doing that.
One group got the green questions and the other the red questions. After answering all questions, we corrected the answers together. I read the questions and they told me the answers.
The result of the activity was excellent. They practice scanning and skimming in a very engaged and fun way. They all participated and liked to find the answers reading the text, I guess they didn’t even had the feeling they were reading it. The reading process naturally happened. The two groups answered the questions correctly. After that, they easily answered the book’s questions and they were very concentrated while they were doing that.
