    2. ···是因为···;只有···,才···;···被···为···;···用···作为···(optional)
    3. Teacher splits the class into small groups of even numbers. Each group forms into two even lines facing each other. A student in one line will select one sentence (try to select different sentences for each partner) and read it to the student directly across from them in the other line. The other student will read his/her own sentence which has the same sentence pattern as his/her partner. When the other student reads his/her sentence, you need to write down his/her sentence besides your own sentence.
    4. Once you are done reading, everybody shifts to the right with the people on the ends with nowhere to move switching to the other line where your role of the first or second one to read will switch. Reading continues until you are back with your original partner. The group that finishes first wins.
    5. Teacher will then review sentences through having 3-4 students
      read their own and their partners’ sentences.

     

    2. Pair my cards

    1. The teacher divides students into groups of 4-5, and then give
      each group one set of character cards which are from the new vocabularies in this topic.
    2. Have each group shuffle their cards and put the cards in a
      facedown pile.
    3. Each student takes turns picking cards until the draw pile is depleted.  Students will then pair the characters on the cards together to create a sentence.  Each student will make as many pairs as possible. They can place the cards on the table once they read it out loud correctly.
    4. Once all members have finished pairing the cards in their own hands, they will pick each other’s cards.  If they pick the card that matches the card in their own hands, they must read it out loud and make a sentence using it correctly, then place it on the table.  If not, they must keep the cards. The first student in each group who places all their cards on the table will win the prize.
