Go through the usual greetings. Ask ss what they remember generally from prvious lessons. El;icit specific things. Like who Beeno is, or what spelling means.
The T asks the students to open their books on page 7. The T reads the story out loud and the ss repeat each sentence. the T uses this to check understanding of the different words and sentence patterns of the text.
Using a ppt. The T draws attention to and clarifies the relationship vocabulary. The T then sets up a game for which a St needs to read what the T writes to get the chance to throw a ball at the picture of the corresponding word. After the game a second reading of th text is done as a whole class. Individual ss are then asked to read sentences playing out the different roles.
The class plays the game of hangman with the different elements of the TL, to consolidate their ability to read them.
