Copy of Introducing and Practising Vocabulary
To provide clarification and practice of activity words in the context of 'At the Park'
To provide listening practice for activity words in the context of 'At the Park'
Procedure (39-54 minutes)
Ask students where the characters are and what they're doing. Use flashcards to elicit vocabulary. Leave the flashcards on the board for when they're playing a game later. Ask Students to practice the new actions (e.g. jump) on the spot and play Simon Says.
Play the chant and encourage the students to mime the actions. Play the chant and encourage the students to join in with the echo line and the final line. Divide the class into two and let them practice the chant.
Give out the photocopies of the action picture cards and the word cards. Let the Ss colour and cut out the picture cards, and then cut out the word cards. Then let them play a modified version of 'Snap' using these cards.
On page 52 of the Activity Book, Ss will listen and number the pictures in the correct order.
On Page 62 of the Activity Book, look at the picture with the Ss. Talk about what the children are doing in the park. Ask the pupils to point to the four different gates. Explain that they have to listen to the CD and follow a route through the park. They start at one gate, follow the path with the actions they hear and finish at another gate. The Ss then put a dot of colour on the gate they finish at. When the Ss finish listening they can colour the gates completely
Using the flashcards left on the board, play a modified version of a board rush with the Ss. Thank them and allow them to go on break.
