Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: Modal Verbs for Advice - Should











This used to be one of my favorite childhood movies and the remake is absolutely fabulous. I used this scene to have students practice modals for advice in a contextualized manner.


I. Watch the movie segment and make a list of 4 inappropriate behaviors these children have. Observe both  Veruca and Augustus to come up with sentences.


VERUCA:

1 ............................................................

2. ...........................................................

3. ...........................................................

4. ...........................................................


AUGUSTUS:

1. ............................................................

2. ............................................................

3. ............................................................

4. ...........................................................


II. Rewrite your sentences above, using modals for advice.


III. Imagine you are supposed to give these children's parents advice. Pair up with a partner. One of you is Veruca's mother and the other one is Augustus' s mother. Role play a situation, giving each other advice for better behavior.
