Teacher prepares cards with words. Words can be from the last unit to recycle them or from the unit that is going to be covered. This activity can be used as a pre-activity to teach vocabulary or as a post-activity to verify comprehension. Teacher says that they are going to create a story using the words in the cards. Each student should build a sentence with his/her word. Teacher asks students to sit in a circle. Teacher distributes cards. Each student picks one card. Teacher gives one minute for students to think about their sentence. Students may ask meaning of words in case they do not know them. Teacher or one of the students begins the activity, and they go on with it in turn. Teacher asks students to summarize the story.
