Lesson Plan Text

How Questions- Gapfill Guessing Game
Choose one of the sections below and read out the phrases there with the same key word 
(the one written at the top section) missing for your partner to guess, e.g. saying 
“That’s 
BLANK pity” or “That’s LA LA LA shame” for “a”. Your partner can only guess once per 
hint. If they still haven’t guessed when all the examples are finished, make up other 
sentences with the same word missing.

That’s right. 
I think that might also be possible, but that’s not the word I have here. I’ll give you 
another hint.
