Make a Witch with Voki

I'm using the SideVibe application in this case, as it's very convenient to have the task right before your eyes while carrying it out. For those who aren't familiar with SideVibe it looks like this:

Go to the SideVibe website, sign up/log in and write describing people in the search box.
If you don't want to bother yourself with any applications, just give your students the instructions below and send them to the Voki website:

Talking about people - 8 activity cards

I'm going to use these cards with my 4-th graders, so that we could review the material from the previous year. I'm planning to use them in several ways.
  First, each student takes a card and tells the class about the child/children on his card.
  Next, each student chooses a card and the others ask him/her special questions to find out as much information as possible. Then they say what they've found out about that person.
  Finally, students work in pairs and try to guess which picture their partner has chosen. They ask general questions about age, clothes, food, favourite season, hobbies, country and nationality and name.

The activity cards are editable.

My Family - a speaking activity

 Student A and student B are two siblings who " have lost their memory" as a result of a serious fight. They ask each other general/special questions to find out the facts they don't remember and circle the right words / fill in the missing information. If they don't know how to write a word, they can ask the partner to spell it.

e.g.: A   - Is our grandma's name Liz?                          A   - What's my name?       
         B   - No, it isn't. Her name is Mary.                      B   - Your name's Lucy.
        A   - Is our grandad on holiday?                               B   - How old am I?
        B - Yes, he is.                                                                 A   - You're 11.

The worksheet is editable, so you can change anything you need.

Just Me And my Dad - Part 2

Here's the second part of the video. You'll find some online activities to use with it here.
There are 6 activities (True/false, choosing the correct verb form, completing the song with the missing words, numbering the pictures in the correct order and writing the story).

You can use the interactive book from Mercer Mayer's website to practise speaking (retelling the story, using different tenses etc.)
