At one of my smallest elementary schools, the 5th and 6th grades are combined. This school year there is only one 6th grader and no 5th graders. I'm sort of at a loss on what to do with her. She's already done all of Eigo Note 2 as a 5th grader, and it seems the JT wants to do it again with her this year, which is fine, but I want to do something a little more engaging than just sticking to the textbook. Does anyone have any experience in this kind of situation or can offer any suggestions for activities? Thanks!

Have a look olive for games aimed at private lessons.

My elem private student is pretty high level but some of the games we play are:

Make a load of cards of words you're studying (fruit or whatever, I do verbs with their past tense) and do that game where you find the pair by turning over two at a time.

Draw a secret picture each and describe it to the other to draw. "there is a cat on the table. Next to the table there is a book". That takes a lot of vocab prep but it's good.

Lots of songs and tongue twisters etc.
