At the restaurant

Lucky me, during this school year I can split the grade 4 class in two groups of 12 children. This means I can devote some “golden” time to oral production without the inconveniences of a big group.

Last October we prepared a role-play, in which children had to play the role of customers and waiters/waitresses in a restaurant.

Children made their own special menus, they gave a name to our particular restaurant, they wrote the dialogues, and they look for some “attrezzo”, plan the rehearsal of the role-play and design the assessment rubric!

Lucky me (again!), the only thing I had to do was to correct some mistakes, and record the play in video.


And, this is the result! (only one group).

For those of you who wants to try this role play in your class, here you are the menu prepared by the students (with a little help of new technologies!)

Role Playing? What's that?
