#4 Four Wishes Game (Int.)

 Today's lesson activity has to do with "wishing". Practice beforehand the proper grammatical form of stating wishes. Then maybe tell the 3 genie joke as outlined in the handout --- marooned on an island each wishes to be home, the last wishes they'd come back, he's lonely!.  Here it is in presentation.

Once you've covered that, play the LIE game.

1. Write down 4 wishes on the board, one is a lie and the students guess which one is the lie. Use this form;

 

A) I wish I had ....................

B) I wish I could .....................

C) I wish I were .......................... er / more ....

D  I wish I had (n't) ....................... (regret)


2. Students do the same and others try to guess which is their lie.

3. Handout the cards and tell them they are genies but with only the powers on the cards. They walk around the class trying to get their wishes granted!

Really fun, read in detail on the handout below. Thanks to Jill Hadfield and her great set of Communication Games for the inspiration for this activity which I modified. Have fun wishing!
