Ask students to think of a word that best represents their last weekend. Have students write the word on their notebook or just say it out loud. Students sit in groups or pair up with a classmate and explain why they picked that word.
a)Students can think of words that best represent their : day, last vacation,mother,personality, work, country,etc.
b)Instead of sitting in groups to talk about their words, students can write a short paragraph.
