MagazinesPicture Fun. Have students cut out a picture of a person in a magazine.  Students should describe the person, how old they are, what their job is, what their hobbies are, etc. and then present that person to the class.  This is good for practicing adjectives (e.g. tall/short, fat, thin, slim, long hair, etc).  (Submitted by Kelly).

Smells BadSmells Game. Preparation: Take eight small, empty jars; opaque jars work best (e.g., plastic vitamin containers). Put good-smelling things (e.g., shampoo, syrup) in four of the jars and bad-smelling things (e.g., vinegar, strong dried herbs) in the other four. Only a small amount is needed. Place all the jars in a big paper bag.  Execution: Write "It smells good" and "It smells bad" on the board. You can also draw a happy face and a disgusted face to clarify things. Teach the phrases. Each student then comes up to teacher, one at a time. The student is then blindfolded and you hold an open jar under his/her nose. He/She must say whether it smells good or bad. Great fun!  (Submitted by Max Becker-Pos).
