Shopping Phrase Review
1.    1 min: ALT and JTE: Explain activity (next we will play a game where you must remember both A and B parts of Key Expressions, so this is your last chance to memorize)
2.    2 min: Students: Stand and memorize both clerk (B) and customer (A) lines from Key Expressions (practice with me and classmates, may write on back of paper to help remember)

Let’s Go Shopping Game!
1.    Students: put away notes (just keep Handout #1 with Step 1 folded down, pencil, and book for writing surface)
2.    ALT and JTE: Explain game (students will use the memorized Key Expressions to “buy” items from shops; 10 students will be customers, 10 will be clerks, then they will switch roles for the 2nd round; see “Directions” below)
3.    Split class in half to make 10 customers and 10 clerks. Give fake money ($20) to each customer. Each clerk will stand behind a desk to sell their 3 items.
4.    ALT and JTE: Model and explain directions
5.    Students: Play 1st round (10 min)
6.    Students: Return money, switch roles and play 2nd round (10 min)
7.    At end, collect money, put back items and collect Handout #1

Hanko Points
--Pairs can get up to 4 hanko points for Key Expressions presentations
--Hanko criteria:
•    1 pt.: memorizing
•    1 pt.: presenting at the front of the class
•    1 pt. using original and creative Key Expressions (not just copying the book)
•    1 pt.: using smooth, almost natural-sounding English (students work hard to meet this challenge )
•    total=4 hanko points!

Key Expressions Presentations!:
--“Score” section on Handout #1 is just happy and sad faces—please add these to the boxes under the Key Expressions Presentations chart

Shopping Game:
--Have word suggestions already written on board (thinthicker, etc.), grammar (try vs. try on, 1 dollar 2 dollars, this chocolate vs. these oranges, etc.)
--Directions: customers will have 10 minutes to buy at least 3 items from 3 different “stores” using their Key Expressions. They may look at the whiteboard for ideas. After they buy an item, they must write on Handout #1 Step 2 the item, price, and get the “clerk’s” signature. If it’ll be easier, they may put “bought” items on their own desk. Students will be graded, so they must participate. During this activity, the JTE and I will move around the room to help students and be sure they’re using the Key Expressions. If students have too much trouble remembering the phrases, they may just glance at the Key Expressions.
