HELPING LEARNERS USE CHUNKS COMMUNICATIVELY

 

In this video we talk about how we can help our students use chunks communicatively - we share 4 ideas that have worked well for us in the classroom. We’re using an interactive video quiz in one of our ideas, which you can find here.

Enjoy!

I really mean my thank you because my bright and peppy students decided to do this assignment over than just doing crossword puzzles for fun Friday and trust me that means a lot. After watching this movie clip and answering the questions they learned that they need to listen to the sounds and facial expressions that the animals are showing and take an educated guess using context clues so THANK YOU!-Caydence Walker.
