Jack and the Beanstalk HSK 1 Mandarin Story

Jack and the Beanstalk HSK 1 Mandarin Story

This is a simplified Mandarin version of Jack and the Beanstalk story using only HSK1 vocabulary. It is made to accompany the Kindle version which has clickable pinyin but can be used without the Kindle book. Inside the pack: - ppt of the whole book so you can read along with the students (note, I had a slight issue with converting this, hopefully it's fixed, but let me know if there are any typos!) - a pdf version of the whole book - pdfs of the inside text and outside covers separately: the reason I did this was so that if you want to make the books longer lasting to reuse with another class you can print the cover on card (also using sticky back plastic is a good plan). Hope your students enjoy it! As with my other resources, please feel free to download and use in any way you see fit, but please do not re-upload elsewhere to prevent my costs, thank you.

BOUM! PowerPoint Game template - Make your own games!

BOUM! PowerPoint Game template - Make your own games!

This is a template - not a full game! You can view and download a FREE example of the game here for French grammar: https://www.tes.com/us/teacher-lessons/boum-imparfait-et-pass-compos-review-end-of-year-end-of-unit-game-11640689. Please click "open as read only" to play the game. With this template, you can make the questions exactly what you want them to be by editing the questions slide. I would advise against changing the order of the slides (e.g. moving the bombs around) as the game relies on the hyperlinks I have created. Please note that the currency is Euros because I teach French! However, you can change it to anything you want! All text is editable. MATERIALS NEEDED: Each team will need a small whiteboard, board marker and eraser (If those are not available, scrap paper does the job too!) HOW TO PLAY: This game can be played individually or in groups. Group games are more fun! To be more effective, avoid having groups of more than three students. 1. Teams first name themselves and take it in turns to choose a number. 2. Once a team has chosen a number and it is not a bomb, all teams attempt to write the verb. They must use the verb indicated on the slide in the correct tense / mood. 3. The team who chose the number has priority: they show their answer first. If their sentence is correct, they win the amount indicated on the slide. If it is not correct, the other teams show answer and they all have a chance to win half of the amount indicated on the slide. (Click the picture of the house in the bottom right hand corner to go back to the numbers grid.) 4. The teacher must keep a record of how much each team wins on the board. (I like to use fake money I printed and laminated and give it for each correct answer! The kids love it!) 5. If a team uncovers a bomb, they lose all their money. There are 6 bombs in total. 6. The team with the most money at the end of the game wins. You will notice that as students choose a number, it changes colors – this will allow you to track the numbers that have already been called.
