Procedure (40 minutes)
Before the lesson I prepare name tags with students' names. I'll say "Hello children, my name is Marina!" Then I call each child's name out and ask them to say 'yes' when they hear their name. At the same time give them their name tags and say 'Hello' and ask them to say 'Hello'.
I'll ask children to stand up and form one big circle. Then I say "My name is Marina." and I pass the ball. Each student will do the same, say their name and pass the ball.
I'll introduce my stuffed dog toy to the students, by approaching each student and say "Hello, my name is Max. What is your name?" and then "Goodbye" or "See you" I'll do it with few students and then put all of them in pairs and let them to introduce themselves to each other.
I'll teach students new vocabulary and act it at the same time. First, I'll say 'stand up' and act it. They'll to the same and repeat after me 4-5 times. Then 'hands up/hands down', 'jump', 'run/stop', 'turn around' and finally 'sit down'.
I'll take out my toy again and start saying 'goodbye' and 'see you' to few students, showing as an example. Then, have students in pairs saying the same thing to each other.
