I almost trashed a perfect classroom material, without realizing its value.
The other day I just cut off the label from my son’s new pair of trousers and was about to throw it away when I discovered its unorthodox contents:
YES! Recycling and reinforcing clothes and other everyday items vocabulary can be extended to practicing (creatively and fun) related verbs (good old -ing in disguise).
Students design similar labels for e.g. umbrellas, paper tissues, chewing gums, …
Students try to match the item with the label.
(It’s up to you to decide.)
