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

3. Story: (Katie in London/Bears on Holiday) / 10 minutes

For the last session, we are reviewing all the vocabulary we have learned thus far. Bring as many FCs as you can. Play many games with the STs and you may  or may not wish to read a story with them. You may even decide to read a story that they really enjoyed from a previous lesson.

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.

Place the FCs around the room in full view. Tell a story using the FCs words. STs must run to the word they hear. The last ST to arrive at the FC has to sit out for the rest of the round. The last ST standing gets to call out the FC words or depending on the level, creates a story of their own.



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)
