Activity Post It Notes (Good for improving
memory, pre-teaching vocabulary before listening
reading, vocab building)
  • Preparation and Instructions
  • Look through the reading or listening
    comprehension for vocabulary that students might
    block and therefore make them disengage from
    the text.
  • Teach each word (in the TL if possible) and write
    it up on the board. Do not write the English
    meaning.
  • At the end, allow the students to copy down the
    words and ask them to write the English meaning
    too. They may not ask you what a word means. If
    they have forgotten they should ask a friend.
  • Ask them to shut their books and give them a Post
    It note.
  • Tell them when the music starts they should write
    as many of the words from the list as they can
    remember (without looking).
  • After about 30 secs stop the music and ask them
    to swap with their partner and try to add to
    their list (ie the words their partner couldnt
    remember)
  • Collect all the words back on the board from
    volunteers and check the meaning. Get them to
    stick the Post It note under their chair etc
  • Repeat 5-6 and then get them to compare their
    lists.
  • Variations Possibilities
  • Words beginning with a certain letter
  • Instead of pre-teaching for a comprehension task
    you could ask them to brainstorm all the pets
    they know, the school subjects etc.
  • You could allow them time with a dictionary to
    find words and then feedback to the class. Then
    use the Post It notes to help the class memorise
    and learn the new vocabalary.
  • They can swap Post It notes and write the meaning
    instead of adding to the list.
  • Consider
  • Have a responsible person in charge of the
    Post-It notes as they can be used inappropriately
    and found on someones back with an inappropriate
    comment!
