So they had to say, *Go north on Malvern, turn east on Broad Street, etc.* Helen ====================== 96/12 From- [email protected]: Re: places and giving directions and houses An activity I have used successfully to teach directions is to have the students guide one another through mazes. I think it was a good activity because in addition I indicated on the board the four cardinal points and this was an added dimension which the textbook didn't include. (Mrs.) Kendall Mellem ====================== 95/11 From- Subject: Re: Request for Elem/French ideas Teach them simple directions: stand, stand up, sit, sit down, jump, show, turn around, point at, touch, etc. The door, window, chair, desk, book, pen, pencil, blackboard, parts of the body - the list is endless. Or you bring in a bag of items and for each item you pull out of the bag, they have to name the place where they would get it or find it. Sometimes I let them help name the streets, which is also fun. To just practice the words for places, you could play charades where they act out what they do in a place and the group has to name the place. Some kids live at a distance so the board was full by the end of the activity.
- I have seen a teacher in new jersey, draw a map of South America, and kids ( 2 or 3) were called to play twister on it - I have traced a huge car, and reviewed car parts in French on the car - and kids played twister with it - they had a lot of fun. If you have lots of time, lots of cooperation and lots of well behaved kids (you are very blessed), you could set up a scavenger hunt throughout the school.
Deby Doloff ====================== 96/12 From- Subject: Re: places and giving directions and houses I just did this activity with my students: I asked for volunteers to tell me how to get from the school to their houses.
You could also name a room and have them act out what you do in it (sleep - bedroom, eat - dining room, etc.) Hope this helps.
(I forgot to mention that I have pictures high on the walls of places the kids recognize from the text.) I give them a time limit, so they have to come back within a reasonable amount of time. Shari Kaulig ====================== 96/12 From- Deby [email protected]: Re: places and giving directions and houses Using pictures or drawings of places on the student desks, you could arrange the desks in a town format.
From time to time the tape instructs them to identify a landmark. Go to the blackboard; turn around and touch your nose! Students then take take turns giving directions as other students "drive" small cars on our streets.
("At the intersection with the Goethe Gasse turn left and continue to the bus stop." etc.) When I want to test that the kids know how to follow directions, I send them out two at a time, each with a different tape in a Walkman. Bonne chance, Martha ====================== 96/12 From- Kaulig [email protected]: Re: places and giving directions and houses I have used masking tape on the carpet of my classroom to create a "mini-city" and used children's toys as trees, monuments, pedestrians, and used small boxes that I labeled as buildings.
