Today is Gonna Be a Good Day – Picture Prompt #1

Today is gonna be a wonderful day!

This prompt is a great way to follow up a lesson on using “going to” (or gonna) to talk about the future. I would recommend that you display the prompt on your projector or Smartboard, and read it aloud with your class.

Tell your students that you would like them to make a list of things that are going to happen that will make today the best day ever. Remind them them that the “be creative” part is key: Their sentences don’t have to be realistic at all. Tell them that they might say, “I’m gonna win the lottery!” or “I’m going to go to the airport and get on a plane to Hawaii.” Model a few sentences for them, and then give them some time to write. This can be done individually, in small groups, or in pairs. Your choice 🙂
