Beginning the lesson
- Wait by the door and greet the children as they arrive.
- (An activity to revise the vocabulary from Unit 3a.)
Take out the flashcards of Mummy, Daddy, cake, pink, sit down, stand up, clap your hands. Shuffle the flashcards and show them to the children, one by one, without looking at them as you say, for example: Mummy. If you guess correctly, the children raise their hands silently and you lay the flashcard aside. Otherwise, you shuffle it back into the pack. Continue playing until you have guessed all the flashcards. You can repeat the activity with various children taking your role.
