I used the first two and last activities in this plan to teach about possessive apostrophes and it worked out well. Family vocabulary was more of a revision topic for my students. Then I added a game to practice possessive apostrophes. The topic of the British Royals was very popular with my students from Burma and they all wanted to keep the pictures.

Hi Jo I have seen many of your works on this site, and am very inspired by them. I am having my first full day teaching on 2 Nov to intermediate class who will be doing the Cambridge PET exam. Do you think to bog the students down with writing eg short essay will be too much for a one day teach? I thought to concentrate on conversation, with games more appropriate, hence reading up on your games. Any other ideas would help... first teaching lesson nerves that I wont be prepared enough or will run out of times given is a scary thought ! Kind regards and thanks Fiona

I found this is an learning and attractive order so i think so it is very useful and cherished. I would like to be in touch thanks you for the hard work you have made in inscription this article.
