Lesson Plan Text

Like/Don’t like TPR coin game
Choose one of the phrases below. Before you start miming, secretly flip a coin. If you get 
heads, mime a positive 
“I like…” sentence about the thing on your card, e.g. someone 
enjoying an ice cream or someone smiling while doing karate. If you get tails, mime a 
negative 
“I don’t like…” sentence about that thing, e.g. someone holding a tea cup and 
saucer and frowning or sticking out their tongue each time that they sip from a cup. You 
can show your positive or negative feelings with your face, your body language, how 
quickly or slowly you do something, etc, but you can’t make any sounds. The first person 
in your class to say the whole correct 
“I (don’t) like…” sentence that you are miming gets 
one point. 

Things to mime

… playing football (= soccer)

… ice cream.

… painting.

…tea.

…karate.

…horse riding.

…bananas.

…crisps (= potato chips).

…massages.

…stroking dogs. 

…bird watching. 

…playing tennis.

Do the same with your own ideas for “I (don’t) like…” sentences. Write a sentence that can
be mimed, flip the coin, then mime your positive or negative feelings.
