Namely hang the pictures on the wall in the same order as they are in the book pages 108& 109 . this will be on two areas in the class Give Ss some labels and give them enough time to check them. Ask Ss to go to the areas and label the pictures. Give them a written feedback. Ex 2 Ss go to their gallery and they put the pictures in the correct order. Write the answers on the right corner of the pictures . Make them invisible.
Give Ss a handout about the useful language. Let them work in pairs This is will be good scaffolding for them. Remind them with the importance of using these expressions when they tell a story. Stick the sheet on the gallery.
