Lead in (2-6 minutes) • To set the context to raise interest using auditory aid and let the ss make predictions about the topic

T greets the ss and asks how they are feeling. T shows the ss a thinking bubble and tries to elicit the word "think"/ 1"imagine" Then T tells the ss - I'll put some music. Close your eyes and imagine/ think what's happening. T plays the auido ( ocean waves and whale sounds) for 30-40 seconds. Then T stops the audio and tells the s to open their eyes. T asks only a few ss - What did you imagine? ( Ss' own answers ) - Where were you? ( In the sea/ ocean) - Which animal was it? ( Whale) Then T shows the ss the picture of Moby Dick and asks whether the ss know it or not. If not, T tells the ss the name of the whale and T tells -We're going to listen to a story about Moby Dick, Katie, Alex, Pip, Squeak and the pirates ( Each time the T shows the pictures of the characters and elicits the answers from the ss) T puts up all the pictures on the board.

Controlled practice 1 (2-8 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a story and providethe ss with a gist activity to develop their listening skills

T demos the activity T shows the A3 sized cut up scene cards stack and then T takes the paperclip and puts the cards randomly on the board. Then T chooses one volunteer as a pair and says -Listen and put the pictures in order with your pair. T plays the recording and does the first one as an example. ICQs -Are you going to do it alone? No (pairs) - Are you going to write anything? No T pairs up the ss and hands in the cut-up scene cards. T asks ss to take the paperclips off and asks "Are you ready?" Then T plays the story and monitors the ss. While they're listening, T sticks the Answer Keys around the walls. After listening to it once, T asks the ss if they want to listen to the story again. Then T tells the ss to check their answers looking at the AKs on the walls.

Clarification (3-7 minutes) • To get the ss to consolidate and use what they’ve learnt in the provided context and develop reading skill- reading for a gist

T demos the activitiy. T shows the ss A3 sized of the question card and the story card. T demos the first question. The first question is " Who are in the story?" ( Katie, Alex, Pip, Squeak, The pirates, Moby Dick) T elicits the answers from the ss and writes the answers on the HO. T praises the ss. Then T tells the ss that they will do the other 3 questions in their groups. ICQ's - Will you do it alone o with your group? ( GROUP) - Will you write the answers o the paper? ( YES) T puts the ss in groups of three ( tiger, zebra, snake, giraffe,iguana/ elephant). T gives out the Question card HO, Story HO and a marker. T monitors th ss closely. T ends the activity when all the groups are ready. To check the questions, T shows each question and elicits the answers from the ss.

Controlled practice (3-10 minutes) • To provide ss with a controlled activity allowing ss to practice writing and personalizing the context

T sets the task. T shows the ss the last picture of the story which the T didn't use it in the previous activites. T last picture has blank speech bubbles for each character. T asks the ss to fill in those speech bubbles both looking at the Picture and using their imaginations. T does one of the speech bubbles with the whole class first. The ss work as closed-pairs. - You have 3 minutes to write what they're saying with your partner. T gives the A3 sized HO to the pairs and monitors closely. T finishes the activity when the time is over. T praises the ss and says - You all did a great job! Now, put your papers on the walls and read your friends' papers. Draw a star on the ones that you like the most. ICQ - Are you going to read only your paper? (NO- ALL OF THEM) - Will you draw your picture on your favourite paper? (NO- STAR) -Will you stick your papers on the desks? ( NO- WALLS) T gives the ss blu tack and monitors the ss.

If time allows • o provide the ss wth extra writing activity
