- (A listening comprehension activity to familiarise children with spoken English.)
Set the scene by asking children what they can see in the pictures illustrating the dialogue.
(Picture 1 – pointing to cat) What has Kitty got?
(Picture 2 – pointing to dog) Can Danny jump? etc
- Next, mime and say: Listen and look. Play the cassette/CD. Children listen and look at the pictures illustrating the dialogue.
Nanny: Where are my sausages? Come back, Kitty!
Lulu: Look! Kitty’s got Nanny’s sausages!
Larry: Kitty can run!
Lulu: Danny can run too!
Larry: Look! Kitty can jump!
Lulu: Danny can jump too! Now Danny’s got the sausages!
Larry: Look! Kitty can climb the tree!
Lulu: Can Danny climb the tree?
Larry: No, he can’t!
Larry: Danny can’t climb the tree, but Chuckles can!
- Explain the listening task. Point to the pictures of Danny and elicit: run, climb, jump. Ask: Can Danny run?, Can Danny jump?, Can Danny climb? Let’s listen. Play the cassette/CD and children listen to the dialogue again. Point to the pictures of Danny again and ask the same questions. Invite children to give you the correct answers. Run – ✓, Climb – ✗, Jump – ✓
- 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: Where are my …
Child: sausages? etc
