Post Fortune Telling Hand
Hey, I was wondering if anyone has a picture of a fortune telling hand with easy explanations the students can read?

I want to use it for the grammar point "I will..."

I did that activity some years ago and I found a picture like you ask for in internet. You just need to search for it. It is easy to find it with explanation.
Sorry I lost it.

Thanks, Cynde! To be honest, I don't know a lot about the palm reading thing. I was looking to practice the future tense with my kids by using grammar and vocabulary my Japanese kids already know, like this:

Looks like fun. You might use a crystal (beach) ball too and they can just take turns reading each other's futures from the ball.

Hello,
I usually teach the "will future" with a lind of Fortune teller, made in origami. You can find it here:
http://www.mathematische-basteleien.de/ ... teller.htm.
When the origami is ready, in the inside you can write numbers, or use different colours. Behind the numbers or the colours you write a tip, for example: marry young or win the lotto... anything.
Then, the students in pairs, ask: What colour , or what number?
Student B says a colour or a number and Student A has to build up a sentence like this " You will marry young.
Hope you find it useful and funny
Olinda

Lind, huh? Is that what they call those things? LOL! I was just sitting aound with a bunch of other teachers the other day and none of us knew the proper name for that origami contraption. We ended up calling it, "Double Mouth."

My god, misspelling is a very bad thing. It was a mistake , I wanted to write " a "KIND of " , not a " lind of". So sorry.
Shame on me.

....and now all over the globe the origami thing once known as Double-Mouth will henceforth be called a lind! Funny how things get named, I'm sure typos have been the reason for many names throughout history! Especially since they couldn't get corrected within hours like now! :lol:
laughing,

Hello, fellows
I'm glad you love my "lind". I think it is going to make a very big career and, who knows, I'll become famous because of it. It is in the top 5, by now, and I bet it 's going to reach the first place.
And, obviously, now that my "calss" are just starting, I feel a KIND of magic in this forum.
Be happy and keep laughing
Olinda
