- (Activities to promote receptive and productive language skills.)
Set the scene by asking children what they can see in the pictures illustrating the dialogue.
(Picture 1 – pointing to Larry) Who’s this? (Point to Sumeet looking puzzled) Who’s this? Then say, Sumeet! (ask children to repeat chorally)
(Picture 3 – pointing to bed) Where’s Sumeet? etc
- Next, mime and say: Listen and look. Play the cassette/CD. Children listen and look at the pictures illustrating the dialogues.
Larry: Nanny, this is Sumeet!
Nanny: Hello, Sumeet!
Larry: Look, Sumeet – this is my room! I’ve got a
blue bed, a green chair and a red table!
Sumeet: Wow! It’s very nice!
Larry: I ’ve got a TV, too!
Sumeet: Oh, good! Let’s watch TV! What’s that?
Larry: It ’s Chuckles! He’s under the bed!
Sumeet: You’ve got a chimp too! Cool!
- (Focus question).
Point to Sumeet in the third picture of the dialogue and say (looking puzzled): Let’s watch …? What’s missing? What is it? Let’s listen. Play the cassette/CD. Children listen to the dialogue again. Point to the third picture again and ask the same question. Invite the children to give you the correct response. ( Let’s watch TV.) Allow children some time to draw the TV. Check children’s answers.
- 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: Nanny, this is …
Children: Sumeet. etc
Ending the lesson
- (An activity to revise the words from Unit 7a.)
Pin up the flashcards of the vocabulary of Unit 7a on the board (room, chair, TV, table, bed, under). Ask the children to close their eyes and remove one of the flashcards. Children open their eyes and try to guess what’s missing. Repeat as many times as you feel is necessary.
