Let’s set up the rules. We had four last year. Do we need to change them, add to them, subtract from them, or do they work?
What did you do this summer? Let’s talk about our great summer activities or our not so great ones.
Let’s talk songs: Which would you like to sing? I’m suggesting:
Chip N Dale’s Rescue Rangers:
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer:
Cheeseburger in Paradise
Possible topics and activities: What do you want to talk about this year? Suggest topics and let’s see what you want to know about the U.S., its culture and language. (Or we can just learn things like “Why does this dog smell? Because it’s wet and dirty” if that’s helpful to you.)
Vote and weighting: We have a limited amount of time hanging out together this year, so let’s vote on the topics and cover the most important ones first.
Word Game: Everyone gets letters. The first decision is if the person can make a word of three-letters or more. If so, take the word and keep the letters. Then place a tile in the playing area. If not, place a tile from your hand into the playing area. Each letter is worth a certain number of points. The person with the highest number of points when all the letters are used, wins.
