Students draw fortunes (omikuji) from different categories to determine their futures!

- OmikujiFortuneTelling attachment (includes fortunes and worksheet)
- Four envelopes or boxes to hold the four categories of wishes.
- You'll need to cut out and fold up the fortunes before class (which took me a lot longer than I was expecting), keep them in envelopes/boxes in the 4 separate categories: Money, Job, Home, Love.
- Review the grammar with the students.
- Hand out the worksheets.
- Split the students into 4 groups (unless you want to add more categories or prepare more copies of the fortunes)
- Hand out the worksheets, and give one envelope to each group.
- The students draw their own fortune, and write in on their worksheet.
- Rotate the envelopes until all groups have had all 4 categories.
- Share answers, this can fill as much time as you like, as you can ask "Who will live in London?", "Who will be a teacher?" etc, and you can get students to read their fortunes. There are a lot of possible answers, and they really enjoyed seeing the different combinations, some turned out to be really funny in my classes.
- Printing the four categories on four different colored sheets will help keep them from getting mixed up.
- Please read through all the wishes. It's likely you will want to change some of them to suit your area, your students or your personality.
