Letter to Myself
Inspired by Angela Aki’s Tegami
After reviewing the grammar point, ask students if they were nervous in March the year before, when they were elementary school students. If/when they say no, get your OTE to tell you if they really were or not.
Explain that they are going to write a letter to themselves back then and talk about school life in junior high. Because they are writing to their past selves, they have to use the future tense.
I gave a couple of example sentences to get them started:
“You will be in the baseball club. Ms XXX will sit next to you.”
It helps to have your OTE translate the instructions for weaker students.
