Letter L phonics - lesson 1
A1 - grade 2 level


Students will review and clarify the "l" sound, with teacher modelling, video modelling, worksheet work and the "Look look look" story. Students will as a result, be taught various vocabulary words beginning with the "l" sound.


Main Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a phonics focus in the context of the ''Look, look, look'' story

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of words starting with "L" in the context of the Look, look, look story


Warmer/Lead-in + highlighting (8-10 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The T begins the lesson by using "look" with vocabulary ss already know. e.g. "Look a kid", "Look a TV", and follows with "Look! What's this/that" The T then shows a slide with all the vocabulary elements of the TL, and asks the same questions. He only answers and models once or twice, whatever the ss apparent level of success. The T then gives the instructions and demonstrates the WS.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

First the T plays the bounce patrol video as a breach in the teaching and a review. Then the T goes through the ppt to clarify the meaning of the story and of the correct pronunciation.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To check spelling and prepare students for more meaningful practice
