- (Listening comprehension activities)
Set the scene by asking children what they can see in the pictures illustrating the dialogue.
(Picture 2 – pointing to Tommy the tortoise) Who’s this?
(Picture 4 – pointing to Chuckles) What is Chuckles now? etc
- Next, mime and say: Listen and look. Play the cassette/CD. Children listen and look at the pictures illustrating the dialogue.
Larry: Ha, ha! Tommy the tortoise is funny!
Lulu: I can’t see his mouth!
Larry: Look! Here’s his mouth!
Lulu: But … he hasn’t got a nose or ears!
Nanny: He’s got a small nose and very small ears.
Larry: Ha, ha! Look at Chuckles! Now he is a tortoise!
Lulu: A tortoise with big ears and a big nose!
- Explain the listening task. Point to the first picture and ask (looking puzzled): What’s missing? What is it? Let’s listen. Play the cassette/CD. Children listen and draw. Allow children some time to complete the task. Check children’s answers. (Tommy the tortoise)
- Play the dialogue again with pauses for children to listen and repeat. Check children’s pronunciation and intonation. Extension: Hold up your book to the class. Say the dialogue and point to the pictures in turn. Repeat, this time inviting children to complete your sentences.
Teacher: I can’t see his …
Children: mouth! etc
