Hi there!
I have a hard knack to crack today. In a few hours I begin teaching, but there is no electricity, no phones, no light, no Internet at this school today due to some heavy snowfall.

I don't want to wast that time any ideas for a lesson in semi-darken classroom? No reading, no writing - just listening and speaking.

HELP :)

Cheers!
Mr_K

Sounds like a good chance for some modal practice; we would be able to x if we had y, we can't do x...

Souds good! I had that class and what I did was a ghost story reading class. With candles, a plastic skull and stories by E.A. Poe from abridged series. Followed by a discussion and a ghost story competition (homework but instead of grades just feedback and a prize for the best short story. <a copy of E.A.Poe's stories>)


Take care!
