Lesson Plan

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

Introducing Flashcards: FCs can be introduced either before or after the story. You may want to show all the FC or half or just a few, depending on age/level, before reading the story so that the STs can make the vocab connection within the story. Either way, present FC one at a time when introducing, have the STs repeat the word after you and pin it on the wall for all to see. If this is done before reading, then STs can also be seeing the FCs while hearing the words.

 

3. Story: Giraffe on a bicycle / 10 minutes

You will need: Book

This book is a shopping adventure with Dad which does not actually include a lot of the grocery nouns that you can find in the pictures. While you are reading the book either have the students tell you what food/products they see or point out the food/products and have them repeat the words (which they will be learning on the flashcards or ones they may already know).

For younger children (3-5), you may want to read only some of the text and concentrate more on keywords. Ensure repetition of those key words.

4. Game / 15 minutes

You will need: FCs: nouns: Mum, Dad, daughter, shop, shopkeeper, list, trolley, cans, fruit/veg/meat/carbs/dairy; Bread, oranges, toothbrush,

soap, eggs, pickles, broccoli, tuna fish, cheese, milk, cauliflower, apple, banana, pineapple; verbs: buy, need, want, should

Example game: Fill the trolley - The point of this game is to use the present tense of ‘to need’ and new vocabulary. T should demonstrate first. T asks, “What do we need?” St raises hand to say, “We need oranges,” The student puts the mentioned item in the trolley.  T asks, “What do we need?” St replies, “We need toothbrushes.” ...etc.

Extra Traction game: Memory game - The point of the game is to use the target verb ‘to buy’ while each St adds a shopping item on their turn. T demonstrates,“I go to the shop and I buy an apple.” Next person: “I go to the shop and I buy an apple and soap.” Next person: I go to the shop and I buy an apple, soap and eggs.” ...etc. *For older levels, you may want to practice the past tense - with I went/I bought.

Extra Prep game: Need vs Want → Should - The point of this game is to understand the meaning of need/want/should. T has a shopping list to indicate what should be bought. T should demonstrate first. T asks: “What do we need?” St raises hand to say, “I want to buy sweets but we need broccoli.” T asks: “So, what should we buy?” → The worksheet has a small dialogue that could be helpful with this game.
