This chart was created to help students practise grammatical structures with the verb ‘can’. Divide students into pairs and hand over one copy of the chart to each pair. The game begins with one student from each pair picking a single animal from the chart (but not saying out loud which one). The other student has to guess which animal it is by forming questions: Can it fly/jump/run etc? Student 1 then needs to answer these questions based on the data in the chart, in full sentences: Yes, it can. / No, it can’t. Once the student 2 has guessed the correct animal by way of elimination, they switch places.
Weekly behavior chart is a great way to facilitate positive student behavior in a classroom through objective and systematic performance assessment. Whenever your students follow or break the classroom rules, draw a smiling or sad face on their chart, explaining the reason behind your decision. This will help them stay focused throughout the day and better understand the consequences of their own actions. Once a person reaches 5 smiling faces, let them suggest a game that you will play in the classroom together, and if they score 5 sad faces, ask them to perform some extra activity or a chore.
