Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To meet students shortly, give some hints about the lesson context and engage students

Greet students by using the puppet and introduce yourself shortly. Ask their names one by one to encourage them to participate in the class.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through "hide and find " game

Before the class, hide the following toys around the classroom (under chairs, in bookshelves, etc.): teddy bear, doll, blocks, robot, puppet, ball, balloon. Also, print the same flashcards as the toys are hidden. At least one toy per student. Have all of the students sit down. Give each one a toy flashcard and tell them that hidden around the room are some toys which they have to find. Model the activity, by showing one toy flashcard (e.g. a picture of a doll) - wander around the room looking in different places until you have found a toy doll. Now, let everyone get up and search around for their toy and then sit down again in their place with the toy. Once all the toys have been found go around the class and have each student hold up the toy they have found. For each toy say and chorus the toy word (e.g. Teacher: "a ball"; Students "a ball"). Next, collect up the flashcards and get each student to hide their toy again - but in a different place. Now, give out the flashcards again, but make sure each student has a different toy flashcard to the one they had before. Let everyone go off to search for their toy, and as before, chorus each toy once they have all been found.

Highlighting (4-5 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Have all of your students sit down. Start by holding up each toy and eliciting, chorusing and passing the toy around (when passing make sure each student says the word for the toy as they pass it). Next put all of the toys in a box and have everyone close their eyes. Pull out a toy and say "Open your eyes" - everyone must open their eyes and shout out the word for toy that you are holding. Play this for all of the toys.

Clarification (4-5 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Play "I have got" toys video. Ask students to sing the song together. Repeat the song and drill "have got" and the toys.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Ask students to have a toy ad sit down. Play the song again but silently this time. Have one toy and star singing; I've got a kite (show the kite and rab another toy) and I've got a ball... Ask students to come to the board and sing and dance with you one by one. Elicit the volunteers first; give them a chance to chose the toy and sing Encourage all students to come to the board, make a circle, sing and dance with you.
