Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

- Teacher greets the students - Teacher asks the students if they know the names of animals when they are small (give some time for them to participate, but if they take too long then provide examples like "kitty", "puppy", etc.)

Pre-Reading (5-7 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

- Teacher reads the storybook for the students. Throughout the reading, the teacher should make an effort to show the pictures and narrate the story in a melodious way. - When necessary, the teacher should make questions to allow students to predict what will happen in the story (Participation during these questions is the activity, so Teacher should make sure that everyone participates at least once)
