Beginning the lesson
- Wait by the door and greet the children as they arrive.
- (An activity to revise language taught in Unit 7.)
Pin up the flashcards from Unit 7, (room, chair, TV, table, bed, under) face down on the board. Above them write the numbers one to six in sequence. Invite children to choose a number and guess what the flashcard is: e.g. five, bed! Turn the flashcard over. If it’s correct leave it. If not, turn it over again and repeat the procedure with another child.
