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: Giraffe on a bicycle / 10 minutes

You will need: Book

This book has some odd phrasing for English learners so you may want to rephrase some of it. The actual story is also a little odd and funny and we decided to focus on teaching bicycle vocabulary. Therefore, while it will be great to point to the animals and have the STs review that vocab, make sure to also emphasise the bike parts and ‘ride,’ ‘fix,’ ‘break’. Also, since we are learning, “I know how to count…”, while reading you can have STs count animals on any given page to practice numbers.

Read through the book, concentrate on encouraging repetition of your target words and or phrases. Give time for the children to see all of the details in the pictures.

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.

For the extra traction levels, encourage them to repeat full sentences based on your T target above.

For extra preps, encourage to children to take turns trying to read pages to the group and to decipher the meaning of the story at the end.

4. Game / 15 minutes

You will need: Bike flashcards

Having read through the story, introduce the flashcards one by one, displaying each one on the wall as it is introduced. Encourage the group to repeat the words several times as they are introduced.

Play some vocabulary integration games to make it fun and enhance word retention: Click here for examples and instructions on the flashcard section of the session.

Example game - Broken Bicycle [I know how to fix..]: T creates a broken bicycle with FCs and STs have to say, “I know how to fix a [wheel, basket...etc.]” to pick the correct FC that is the fixed version of the bicycle.

Extra Traction and Prep game - after the bicycle game, add in other ‘how to’ sentences - I know how to ride a bicycle, I know how to swim, I know how to count to..;

5. Song / 10 minutes (recommended for younger groups)

Recommended for groups under 8 years. Choose the song that best suits your group.

Older groups can move straight onto the individual activity time.

 

6. Individual activity/ 10 - 20 minutes

You will need:  handout and markers and/or pencils.

The aim of this section in the session is to spend time with each child individually. Encourage each child to either repeat vocabulary and sentences or to produce them independently, depending on their level.

Each handout is age-specific, please ensure you use the handout that corresponds to your group. You may decide to use a handout aimed at a different age if you group is of a high level.

Handout 1, 3-7yrs (PS, MS, GS, CP, CE1)
