To be clear, or not, for next week (our last week) you should choose 9 words from your article (normally from the vocabulary list you wrote on here) and make 9 "taboo" type cards for a vocabulary game next week.That entails writing the word to be guessed at the top of the card and then 3 or 4 words below a segregating line that cannot be used to help define it. Here is a template https://d1uvxqwmcz8fl1.cloudfront.net/tes/resources/11308465/0ae96af7-bb97-47df-b9b7-319f9e2dc8d5/image?width=500&height=500&version=1467107905042 but it doesn't really matter as long as you come with 9 separate pieces of paper in the format outlined above.

If you don't arrive with them I'll just give you a hard and boring Grammar exercise instead.
