Third Person Singular – Introduction Cards
Third Person Singular (Affirmative) – He wants donuts. She plays the guitar.
Print enough for each student to have maybe two or three. Then cut. Hand out to the kids. Have them struggle reading the names, regret what you’ve done and push through it anyways.
Hand out a few cards to each student. Have them stand up and walk around the room introducing the character cards they hold in their hot little hands.
Student A: Hello. This is Berri. He wants donuts.
Student B: OK! This is Sunny. She likes natto.
Rinse and repeat until all cards are finished.
Then students will awkwardly stare at each other for a moment, then move on to next person.
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.
AND YES I ADMIT, not all the names on the sheet are accurate to the actual video game. For example, the lizard with the shorts real character name was Prince Fleaswallow. A glorious name for sure, but it wasn’t going to fly in my class. I have no regerts about it.
