Make a sentence:
Materials: You will need to display a list of concepts either via the board, a chart, an overhead, or an LCD projector.
Object of the Activity: Review previously learned vocabulary.
Instructions: Display a list of 30 or 40 previously learned vocabulary words. Have the students come up with sentences (questions) using vocabulary from the list.
Instructions to the students:
Using this following list, come up with a QUESTION that incorporates at least 2 signs from the list.
Your question can be as long as you would like and you can use other vocabulary that we have learned in class.
Teaching notes: Model a few questions for the students. Then ask for volunteers. Bribe as necessary. :) Then have each student come to the front and ask a question. AFTER the question has been asked, call upon a student in the class to come up and answer the question. (It is important to call up a student only AFTER the question has been signed. That keeps ALL the students awake during the question because they don't know if they are going to be called upon to answer it.
