- (An activity to revise the language already taught while children practise fine motor skills.)
Tell children they are going to make rabbit ears. Photocopy and hand out the Craftwork Sheets. Guide them through the cutting and gluing of the rabbit ears. Go around the class as the children complete the task, providing any necessary help. Invite children to colour their ears and put them on. Go around asking questions about rabbits (e.g. Can rabbits run? , Have rabbits got big ears? , etc) During this stage, feel free to play any song from the module.
Ending the lesson
- Invite the children, one by one, to the front. Hand them an animal flashcard and ask them to mime the action. The rest of the class has to guess what the animal is. The first child to answer correctly takes the next turn.
