Lesson Plan

1. Hello Song / 5 minutes (recommended for younger groups)

2. Recap last session's target language / 5 minutes

Take out the FCs 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: Wake up do, Lydia Lou! / 10 minutes

You will need: Book

This is a simple book. Read and emphasize the phrase ‘Wake up…’ You can even add in the other target phrase ‘go to sleep’ by saying it in present or past at the beginning of the book (it is not written in the text)

Give time for STs to interact with the book as there are plenty of target words in the pictures.


4. Game / 20 minutes

You will need: Flashcards

Nouns: dream, nightmare, ghost, night, bed, lamp, teddy bear, adjectives: scared, happy, relaxed, verbs: wake up, go to sleep,


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

Example game: T tells STs to ‘go to sleep’, ‘wake up’, ‘have a relaxing/happy dream’, or ‘have a scary dream.’ STs must act out the different instructions. After a few rounds, have a ST call out instructions.

Extra Traction game: Go around in a circle and have the STs practice telling about a dream using “and” to connect their phrases, e.g. T: “Did you have a dream?” ST: “I went to sleep and I had a _____ dream, and then I woke up.” Use the FC with the sentence as a prompter for the ST speaking to hold.

Extra Prep game: Have ST speak in partners and ask/answer target questions: What time do you wake up? What time do you go to sleep?
