For The Lower Levels: An Activity And A Song

The latest activity and song in the Media Center are designed with lower level students in mind. The source material is authentic and not designed to be used for language instruction, but the tasks for each activity are suitable for a beginning student.

Cooking shows are popular with many of our students, but catching the all the necessary vocabulary (including measurements and amounts) can be a challenge. This short clip offers a chance to do some close listening for that vocabulary.

This classic pop song by Elton John is lyrically very simple, and makes a nice cloze exercise. If your students watch American Idol (which I'm sure some do), you can follow up with this performance from the current season.

The worksheets are available in the usual places: wiki, the binders by the faculty computers, and on the board outside the Media Center.
