Speaking Club
Grade 4 level


In this lesson, students practice speaking based on BUMP UP blue, the first unit. Ss are assumed to understand, read and use all the words in a proper way. The lesson starts by warming up where Ss have a discussion about the story of Aesop's Fables. This is followed by teaching SS vocabulary using flashcards. After that T tests Ss comprehension. Finally, there is some controlled practice through sentence reformulation and free practice via final role-play speaking activity.
