Third Person Singular – Board Game
Third Person Singular (Affirmative) – He wants donuts. She plays the guitar.
Print preferably on A3. Bring dice. Put students into groups of 3-4.
Toss the dice and boards at the students. Jaken to see who goes first. Roll the dice and land on a character space. Each character should be denoted with a “He/She” followed by the verb and noun underneath with the appropriate addition of “s”.
Dice roll of three
“1, 2, 3. Oh, etooooooooo. He wants a cat”
“1, 2, 3, 4, 5… ah. Go back 3….1, 2, 3, She likes sushi.”
Warp pads are safe spaces. Do with them as you see fit.
Straight forward? I hope so. I believe in you… I gotta believe!
More about this
When I have the time/inspiration, I have attempted to do “themed” lessons. My first fully successful “themed” lesson was with Third Person Singular all with Parappa the Rapper.
Some of you may be too young, too old, or just don’t care. But Parappa the Rapper was an PlayStation rhythm game featuring a whole cast of goofy and weird characters. This really worked well for me as I was able to adapt whatever character to whatever scenario I saw fit.
Parappa is old and may not warrant the attention I gave to it. Many of my students had no clue what the characters were all about, but seemed receptive to the color and wackiness of it all.
Oh. I also used this font for some of the Parappa the Rapper Aesthetics. Word of caution. The “K” in the font always looks like a capital K. Hence, why I switch fonts from time to time.
