3. Story: Rosie's Hat / 10 minutes

You will need: Book

Introducing FCs: 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.

While there are some new nouns, the focus in this book is on new verbs and exclamation words. As you read aloud these target words, make memorable motions or emphasise the onomatopoeia to help STs really grasp the meaning, for example, flap a wing while you read ‘fly’ or make a squeak sound while you read ‘squeak’. For all age STs this is a great book to have your STs repeating the exclamations and verbs and the paired motions. Simplify the sentences for younger levels.

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. 

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.

Ensure repetition of the key words.

Having introduced the FCs before or after the story, drill the new vocabulary with a game or two.

 Click here for examples and instructions on the flashcard section of the session.

Example game: T says a word and the STs have to do the assigned action. T: ‘sneeze’

STs: STs fake sneeze

T: ‘tickle’

STs: make a tickling motion with their fingers

Once they understand the game, have a ST call out the words.

Extra Traction game - Simple Present Tense [grow, fly, splash, squeak, blow]: Point to a FC and have the STs create sentences with present simple. T demonstrates, for example: points to: Owl, makes the sentence: The owl flies.

Extra Prep game: Explain the verb ‘grow’ again if needed. Write out “A girl grows into a lady” show the STs the FC of the girl growing into lady. Have the STs create sentences with ‘grow’ and respective nouns.
