To provide detailed reading practice using a text about action vocabulary in the context of At The Park
To provide listening practice
Procedure (36-50 minutes)
Students revise and review vocab from the last lesson by playing Simon Says and repeating the chant they learnt at the last lesson
Talk about the pictures of today's story with the students. Ask them to name all the characters and actions they know: "Who's this? Bing can jump" etc. Ask them to predict what the story is about. Acknowledge their contributions and recast them if they are in Italian. Play the CD and ask the pupils to listen and point to teach frame.
Talk to the Students about the silhouettes from the story. Explain that they have to look through the story, find each picture and write the number of the frame it is in. Give the Students a few minutes to find the pictures and write the numbers. Go through the answers with the class. Then ask the Students to try to remember what the character says in each case. Model the phrase and encourage the whole class to join in and practise in chorus.
Explain to the Students that they are going to listen to the story again, and mime it as they listen. Assign a character to each Student. Play the CD and encourage them to act their part. Encourage the pupils to say the words along with the recording.
Tell the Ss that they are going to make their own story book.
