Writing about a memorable event – lesson ideas for A1/A2 students
In order to help my students write about one of their interesting family life events, I decided to prepare a very simple, step by step, model text for their next exercise. One can say it is nothing special, however, transferring it into a picture video on mysimpleshow.com (my new discovery) and then doing an interactive exercise on wardwall.net (another useful online tool) may help even the most resistant students create a decent text. At least, I hope it will.
1 Rebecca described her unforgettable birthday party. Put the parts of her text in order, so that you can get a logical and consistent description. Then watch the video and check.
2 Read the text and answer the questions.
a) Why did Rebecca’s parents organize a special party for her?
b) Where was the party?
c) Were there many people at the party?
d) What surprised Rebecca most?
e) What present did she like most?
3 Complete the text with the correct words.
4 Now it is time for you to describe a memorable event in your life. In your text write about:
- when and where the event was
- what happened during the event
- how you and other people felt after the event
In your description use the following sequencing words: first, then, after that, finally.
