Open class with a "hello song" in which students practice saying 'hello,' asking 'how are you,' and introducing themselves.
Show students flashcards with pictures of the target lexical set. Use concept checking questions to ensure that students understanding the meaning. Drill the spelling and pronunciation of the words.
Have students work in pairs to complete the worksheet. Students draw lines from each picture to the word that it matches. In a second exercise, students practice spelling of each word.
Pass a ball around the circle of students. When the timer rings, the student holding the ball must answer a question, make a sentence or say a word relating to the target lexical set.
Arrange students in a circle. Present flashcards again, and ask each student individually, "What is this?" "How do you say it in English?" "How do you spell it?" Then have students work in pairs to find the real object in the classroom and point to it.
