Procedure (36-48 minutes)
Since we will be starting a new unit called storytelling, the students will first be shown an image that should get them to predict what this new unit will be about. The warm activity for this lesson will be chain storytelling, the student will need to come up with a story based on the vocabulary on the ppt.
The pre-reading activity for this lesson will be prediction. The students will be shown images and titles of the two texts they will be looking at. They then will need to discuss what they see and predict what the two topics will be about.
Once the students have read their text, they need to predict the endings of the stories since they are incomplete.
Students will be given the meaning of the bold words in the text. They will need to in pairs match the bold words in the text with the meanings given using context clues.
Students will be allowed to practice their speaking skills by sharing their views on what ending they found to be the most effective. Students will be also be asked to share any stories any personal stories or stories that have been shared with them with morals.
