Lesson Plan Text

Zero Conditionals and Feelings- Personalised Sentences Guessing Game

Choose one of the feelings below and say something that makes you feel that way or what
you do when you feel that way without saying the name of the feeling, for example 
“If/ 
When I feel this way, I usually chew my fingernails” without saying “stressed” or “If/ When I
have a test, I almost always feel this way” without saying “motivated”. Your partner should 
then try to repeat the sentence back to you with the correct feelings word

Example dialogue
“When you feel bored, you usually chew your fingernails”
“Actually, if I feel bored I just have a nap”
“When you feel stressed, you usually chew your fingernails”
“Yes, that’s exactly right” 

Useful phrases for playing the game
“If/ When I feel this way, I (always/ almost always/ usually/ often/ sometimes)…”
“If/ When…, I…”
“That’s right”
“That’s also true, but that’s not the sentence that I wrote”
“No, that’s not true for me. In that situation I… Try again”
“Shall I give you a hint?”

Without looking above for now, put at least one suitable word into each of the gaps below. 
A slash (/) means the words should have similar meanings and a dash (-) means that the 
words should have opposite meanings. Words which weren’t above are also fine as long 
as they match the gaps.
