Holiday and Review 1 (LPO7)
Teaching targets (varies based on levels)
Verbs: to go, to play
Nouns: beach, mountains, plane, train, hike, swim, games
Questions: What [or question word] + going to + verb?
Sentences: I am going to + verbal phrase.
1. Hello Song / 5 minutes (recommended for younger groups)
2. Recap last session's target language / 5 minutes
Take out the flashcards from the last session and see who remembers the words or phrases
3. Story: (Monster School Summer Plans) / 10 minutes
With this lesson, we are focusing on teaching 'going to' for future plus phrasal verbs. The STs are definitely excited about the upcoming holidays and want to share - take this oppurtunity for the STs to discuss them in English. Add verbal phrases as needed - eat out, read a book, visit family, etc.
Read through the book, concentrate on encouraging repetition of your target words and or phrases. Give time for the STs to see all the details in the pictures.
4. Game / 15 minutes
Introduce the flashcards one by one, displaying each one on the wall. Encourage the group to repeat the words several times as they are introduced. This can be done before or after the story.
Play some vocabulary integration games to make it fun and enhance word retention.
Begin by saying one thing you are going to do on holidays. Then, have a ST say what she is going to do and then what you are going to do. Continue to build up the activities until everyone has gone. To make it competitive, add the rule that if ST forgets something they are out. With this, the game can continue with STs giving a second and third item until only one ST is left.
5. Song / 10 minutes (recommended for younger groups)
Recommended for groups under 8 years. Older groups can move straight onto the individual activity time.
You can change the lyrics and use respective vocabulary instead (e.g. “The giraffes on the bus go up and down…”)
6. Individual activity/ 10 - 20 minutes
The aim of this section in the session is to spend time with each ST individually. Encourage each ST to either repeat vocabulary and sentences or to produce them independently, depending on their level.
Initiation HO: can be used for colouring as you interact with each ST individually or, for olders, explain and request that they follow the instructions for the exercise.
7. Recap / 5 minutes
Briefly, have STs recall the vocabulary they just learned.
8. Goodbye Song / 5 minutes (recommended for younger groups)
Remember to consult our level guideline regularly to ensure the best progression for your groups.
