How to use this activity
Display the poster on the screen and give your students a time limit to generate as many correct phrases as possible by associating the two sentence halves.
My mother worked… as an accountant / on Saturdays / at a factory.
To make it harder, add a constraint such as funny/sad/boring/normal sentences. For every correct sentence, the student earns a point.
You could also ask your students to make long sentences by putting together several of the sentence halves on the right side in a logical order.
Being able to describe your work day is good, but being able to talk about work while reviewing how to create well-structured sentences is even better!
If you are talking about jobs in your ESL classroom, this activity is a good start. Whether you use it as a warm-up, a time-killer, or an end-of-lesson activity to introduce the next class, it’s a good alternative to the usual textbook conversation prompts.
Oh and just like our other Jukeboxes, it can be used online and offline for groups or one-on-one lessons!
