"Be the Teacher" Class Activity Idea!

 Often times the students feel lethargic and tired by the end of the day - and not to mention how much the teacher's vocal chords are needing the time out! :P
This activity will help reinforce grammatical strategies as well as get the class talking - and add a little competitiveness and screaming to the mix if your class thrives on competition!

Firstly, write out a few sentences for each group on the board, observe below:

Have a look at the example below. Then ask the students to talk amongst their groups about how to correct the errors in each sentence. (In a low voice)!
Then one by one, students will come up to the board and correct each sentence.
This activity really enhanced my students' skills of 'attention to detail' - because later on, I made a mistake on the board and they noticed it! Ha! Talk about 'being the teacher'! :P

Hope you enjoyed this post, would love to hear your comments if you've used this or anything similar in your classroom!
Always on the prowl for ideas. :)
