Today’s conversation was about choice – the act of selecting or making a decision when faced with 2 or more possibilities.
We looked at some adjectives that go with choice – right, wise, careful, good, bad, wrong, difficult, and hard. Other adjectives are – free, first, second, consumer, popular, career, moral, clear, and multiple.
We looked at some verbs that go with choice – make, face, be faced with, offer, give, have no, and have little.
Next we discussed our personal choices that we make daily and some other life choices we’ve made. We may not realize it but we make lots of choices everyday throughout our lives. We talked about what type of choice maker we are – do we make choices quickly or do we take our time and think about our choices before making them. Making choices can be difficult when there is too much to choose from like at a store
or picking an item from a menu at a restaurant
Then in pairs we asked each other some random this or that type choice options. It was a fun way to get to know each other through our choices!
We listened to a poem called “Choice” and after listening talked about the words in the poem and what it meant. Then we watched this video which goes with the poem “Choice”
Watch the video with the transcript of the poem, and you will see that the message of the film is that the writer of the poem has chosen to ask his girlfriend to marry him and she has accepted. We looked at the use of “choice” and “choose” in the poem and the ways choice is described.
