STORY WRITING (COLLABORATIVELY) (1B2)

narrativewritingconceptmap1

“Suddenly something has happened to me As I was having my cup of tea Suddenly I was feeling depressed I was utterly and totally stressed Do you know you made me cry? Do you know you made me die?”

THIS IS THE NICE BEGINNING FOR A STORY. WATCH THE SONG CLIP AND TELL US THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG… SHE IS UTTERLY AND TOTALLY STRESSED………WHAT HAPPENED TO HER?

 

FUNNY MISHAPS (1B2)

UPDATESPIN6

MISHAPS ARE MINOR  UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENTS MAINLY BECAUSE OF BAD LUCK,……. UNPREDICTABLE ACCIDENTS THAT ARE UNFORTUNATE. SOMETIMES THEY CAN OCCUR AROUND THE HOUSE AND MIGHT INVOLVE SOME CLEANING OR EVEN SOME REPAIRS…

LOOK AT THIS ADVERT. IT CAME ON BRITISH TV…….. IS IT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN? ‘Mum doesn’t let us watch wrestling on TV, but she seemed quite good at it with daddy’ was the line that got me and really made me giggle. WHAT´S IT ALL ABOUT? CAN YOU THINK OF ANY OTHER COMMON MISHAPS? DO YOU HAVE ANY PERSONAL MISHAP TO SHARE WITH US? LISTEN TO THIS CONVERSATION: http://www.esl-lab.com/night/nightrd1.htm logo2007
