Lesson Plan Text

Months- Hangman Guessing Game
Months spelling practice/ Present Simple speaking

Instructions
Choose one of the months below:
 January
 February
 March
 April
 May
 June
 July
 August
 September
 October
 November
 December

Draw a blank line on the board or a piece of paper to represent the name of the month that
you chose (“___________________________”). (Don’t write shorter gaps for each letter 
like normal hangman, because this will make the game too easy).

Give one hint about which month you are thinking of, using a phrase like those below. 
Your partner can then guess one letter of the month that you are thinking of, e.g. 
“T”. If 
they are right, write that letter in the correct place on the blank line. If the month that you 
chose doesn’t include that letter, then draw a cross instead. Continue until your partner 
spells the whole month that you chose, then switch roles and try to guess the month that 
your partner chooses. Continue switching roles and doing the same until the teacher stops
the game. The person who guesses a whole month with fewest crosses (e.g. just one 
cross in the seventh round) wins the whole game.
