    personally, I always thought "Brummy Bars" sounds particularly delicious.

    hannah-

    if you want an activity to help with their speaking have you tried battleship? Do have a copy of the team taught pizza book? Has the rules all out in japanese and instead of doing A-I and 1-10 as the grid markers have it ask questions, well part questions such as

    "can you ~?" where the other have might be something like "play the piano"

    my girls really seem to like and my supervisor thinks its one of the best ideas.

    The Battleships works top notch! (Did it with ni nenseis) Mind U, I am the school where the kids do behave on the whole. The seemed to enjoy it (it is difficult to tell sometimes!)

    I'll attempt it with the rest of the Gojo rascals in the coming weeks!

    Noel, I sypathise I really do! Go with the wordsearches if that is what works with the little buggers! (being polite!)

    Oh no, I love my students. I much rather have lively students than quiet ones!

My school is really low level, so basically if I can get the students to behave, the JTEs are happy.
    I took the word search idea on board.

    Most of my classes are planned to be 2 weekers. I usually get the students to write something along topical guidelines using a certain tense or vocabulary group and then in the second week they have to give a speech or a skit on what they have written. When I give the handouts now I attach a wordsearch to the back.
    It stops the lazy kids from sleeping but also gives the smart ones something to do should they finish everything before the end of class.
    It is very useful in classes of mixed ability (which unfortunately all of my classes).
