Grade Level: 1st grade
Materials: Funny pictures or caricatures of people.
Form the kids into groups of four to six students. Distribute one caricature to each group. Have them invent and write a self introduction for that character and then present it in front of the class. To vary the level, certain grammar points can be required, or examples can be written on the board. Especially useful for targeting self introduction sentence structures such as "I am", "I like", and so on. Also good for practicing third person, by having the students use the form "He is" instead of "I am" and so on.
