Third Person Singular – Worksheet
Third Person Singular (Affirmative) – He wants donuts. She plays the guitar.
Print enough worksheets for each student.
Hand out the worksheets and have the students make up names and sentences for each of the three top characters. Some of my students wrote their friend’s names down. Others were smart enough to call the last character “Onionsman”, which I loved.
The last section is for the drawing of your friend/teachers/ or whoever you feel is necessary for the process. I had my students draw my JTE face, after I made him list off a few things he likes and plays. Once completed, I had a few brave volunteers come up and present their drawings while speaking the target language. Good laughs all around when it came to the face reveals.
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.
