To provide specific information listening practice using a text about classroom objects
Procedure (39-49 minutes)
Greet the children and ask "Are you happy today?", "Are you angry today?" "Are you sad today?" by changing tone of your voice. Revise the numbers they learnt in the previous class via a numbers song where students sing and dance at the same time.
Bring a school bag and say " This is my school bag and I have got lots of things in it." making them curious about it. Introsuce the objects and ask them if they have the some object in their school bags or pencil cases. "This is my pencil." "Have you got a pencil?" "Show me your pencil." Put the objects on the floor and have the students repeat the words.
Hold up the flashcard of Frodo. Say "Listen and follow the footprints with Frodo the frog". Play the CD. The children listen and follow the footprints with their fingers. They stop by each picture as they hear the word and they repeat the word.
Stick the word cards on the board in jumbled order (at the children's height and away from the flash cards). Point to one word card, e.g school bag, and read the word. Say "Look for the school bag". Give the children time to do this. Ask a child to come to the front of the class and stick the word card for school bag by the corresponding flash card. Ask the rest of the class "Is this right?" and get them to say the word. Repeat the procedure with the rest of the word cards.
In this stage, the ss listen and sing the song (PB page 14) Point to Pip and Squeak in turn and ask "Who's this?" The children identify the characters. Say "Pip has got a......(pencil)" and the children identify the objects each character is holding. Say "Listen to the song. Put the small pictures (prepared by the teachers in advance) in the blanks in the song." Do not forget to demonstrate the activity! The teacher gives the answer key to the children to check their answers.
Read, colour and say. Use objects and clothes to check that the children remember the colours brown, pink, blue, green and red. Say read and colour the pictures. They work individually. Check the answers by pointing to the pictures in turn and asking individual children to tell you the correct description for each one. Look and Write Ask the children to identfiy the object in each picture orally. Draw their attention to the example and the words in the box. The children write the words.
The students do the word search activity in three groups. One student from each group come to the board and try to circle the classroom objects. If time allows, the students play hangman.
