So... since the lesson was so successful and since my ladies begged me for a copy of the text that we had produced... I adapted another of Jason Renshaw's resources found here to create a piece of follow up work which again adapts another JR idea... the wordwise sheets.
This is my finished piece:
I guess it's nothing that special to anyone else but I know my learners will love it and it'll give me a chance to go over the vocabulary they said was unfamiliar and hopefully embed it a little bit deeper into their consiousness than most normal vocab activities.
I came back from work on such a high, showed it to my husband who tried to be suitably impressed and encouraging about a topic he knows very little about :-)
It just looks professional and more than that it's theirs... they made it! One of my fellow teacher's even said she'd like to use it with her lower level class as a reading. What a compliment for my class when I tell them :-)
