Presentation & Practice
- Flashcards (school, pen, pencil)
(Activities to present and practise the vocabulary of the lesson.)
Pin up the flashcards, one at a time, and say the appropriate words. Children repeat, chorally and individually. Hold up a finger and ask the children to do the same. All together say: one. Do the same for all five fingers and then children count out loud from 1 to 5, holding up their hands and counting on their fingers at the same time. Ask children to take out their picture cards (school, pen, pencil, one, two, three, four, five). Call out the items in random order. Children listen and hold up the corresponding picture card.
- Draw a large 20 on the board. Point to it, mime and say: Open your books at page twenty!
