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.
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?

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.
