Lesson Plan

Days of the Week (LPM)

5 min Greeting

Hello Song - Click here for hello song ideas 

Calendar, Rules, Colours, etc.

Spend some time asking BASIC QUESTIONS: How are you? How old are you? What's your name?

5 min Review last week 

Take out the flashcards from the last session and see who remembers the words or phrases. If you gave homework - go through the work as a class.

10 min Introduction of topic

Introduce the topic FCs one by one displaying each one on the wall as it is introduced. Top tip! Encourage the children by allowing the children that repeat the word correctly to stick it up on the wall/board. Encourage the group to repeat the words several times as they are introduced. Play games with FCs to reinforce new vocabulary. Examples here.

Use the calendar to show and talk about today and the other days of the week. Sometimes, there is a calendar in the room - you can draw the connection if children are having a difficult time to understand days.

15 min Book

Before reading, revise the vocab using flashcards. Read through the book:  Days of the week -by ESLkidstuff.
