Set the scene by asking children what they can see in the pictures illustrating the dialogue.
(Picture 1 – pointing to Larry) Where’s Larry going? (pointing to children) How many boys? How many girls? etc
- Next, mime and say: Listen and look. Play the cassette/CD. Children listen and look at the pictures illustrating the dialogues.
Nanny: Have a nice day at school, Larry!
Lulu: Bye, Larry.
Bus driver: Now, let me see! How many girls? One, two, three. Three girls, good!
Bus driver: Now, how many boys? One, two, three, four, five – huh?
Larry: Oh, Chuckles!
Bus driver: Goodbye, Chuckles!
All children: Goodbye, Chuckles!
Bus driver: But… what’s this?
- (Focus question) Point to the pictures of the girls and say (looking puzzled): How many girls? Three? Two? Let’s listen. Play the cassette/CD and children listen to the dialogue again. Point to the pictures again and ask the same question. Children circle the correct number. Check their answers. (three girls)
- 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: Have a nice day at …
Children: school. etc
Ending the lesson
- (An activity to revise the words from Unit 4a.)
Provide children with a sheet of paper. Ask them to draw as many pens (up to five) as they wish and write the number below them. They hand in their drawings as they leave the classroom. Make sure you display their work in class or somewhere in school to promote self-esteem and a sense of achievement. As they leave, ask them about the number of pens.
Teacher: How many pens?
Child 1: Five (pens). etc
