Pandy the Panda INTRODUCTION What is it?

Pandy the Panda is a three level English course written especially for young pre-school learners (3 – 6 year olds). Each level has a Pupil’s Book, Activity Book and Teacher’s book plus relevant CDs, and the entire course rotates around topics normally dealt with at pre-school level in L1. The series uses classroom strategies and material proven effective with children in their early years of learning. Young learners will be captivated by the adventures of Pandy, his friends and their playhouse. It also motivates children through entertaining chants, songs, pen to paper activities, games, puzzles, stickers and stories.

Methodology

The methodology of the course is based on active learning and whole learning, with a child-centred perspective on education, and fully meets the needs of very young learners. Pandy the Panda is based on a spiral syllabus with continual opportunities to revisit language and structures. One of the keys to teaching very young learners is to go over material in a variety of different ways and allow for continual review and recycling.

Objectives

General Objectives of the series: Stimulate the physical, intellectual, affective and social development of children. Foster learning in a friendly, non-threatening environment in which English becomes a stimulating and enjoyable experience for very young learners. Provide a global and significant learning experience in which the acquisition of the new language becomes an integral part of the whole process. Use a variety of methods and other innovative resources to encourage learning (provide activities for all learning styles/teaching styles) Stimulate the development of the children’s social skills. This will contribute to their individual development and help them integrate into the group. Stimulate the use of non-linguistic resources to show understanding. Provide teachers and pupils with sufficient resources to introduce material, review items which are learned, and understand progress. Conduct ongoing assessment (teacher assessing pupils and pupils assessing their own progress and participation) Address the needs of non-native speaking English teachers, and the day to day problems which arise with this age group of children.

• • • • • • • • •

Non-Linguistic Objectives

A variety of non-linguistic objectives are included in the course. These non-linguistic objectives can be divided into values, and learning skills and strategies. Values: sharing, self esteem, civic sense, ability to work in a group, ability to work alone, taking on responsibilities, good manners, respecting nature, helping at home, cleanliness, hygiene etc. Learning Skills and Strategies: general study and learning skills, logic (ability to solve logic puzzles etc.), gross and fine motor skills, social skills, interpersonal skills.

Who is it for?

It is designed primarily for high-level schools with 3 - 5 hours of English a week at pre-school level. The course is extremely flexible and can also be adapted to fit in to programmes with more or fewer contact hours. This is done by providing core course material alongside a series of extras which can be elaborated on by teachers with more contact hours, or with higher language level pupils.

How is the course structured?

Pandy the Panda Pupil’s book consists of one Starter unit, eight core units, each based on a centre of interest that corresponds to the children’s age, and three consolidation storycard units. Flatplan of units The eight units follow the same pattern and each page is a lesson. The complexity of the illustrations and tasks is age/level appropriate and shows clear progression from level to level. Page 1 (Lesson 1): Language Presentation A colourful page for the presentation of the new language in context, through Pandy and his friends (Gina, Ben and Sue). This language will also be presented on the CD through a chant. The aim of the first page is mainly presentation and developing oral comprehension skills. In level 2 and 3 (for four and five year olds) this page also serves to develop observation skills, by asking the children to look for hidden objects in the artwork. Whenever possible, this page will also include Moral and Civic Education. Page 2 (Lesson 2): Language Practice and Pen to Paper activity A full-page pen to paper activity to practise the lexis of the previous page and recycle the vocabulary of past units. This page focuses on the development of observation and fine motor skills. It also provides an opportunity for the pupils to work independently.

4

Page 3 (Lesson 3): Song A full-page TPR song to consolidate, broaden and strengthen the unit vocabulary in an enjoyable way. Pandy and his friends will lead the songs. The songs include action vocabulary and common expressions (as receptive language). They give children the opportunity to develop gross motor skills and coordination, while practising the rhythm and intonation of English. Page 4 (Lesson 4): Sticker page A full activity page to practise vocabulary and structures using stickers. At this stage, the children will be required to classify items according to the instructions. This lesson will develop both observation and fine motor skills. When possible, this page also includes Moral and Civic Education. In levels 2 and 3 the activities are more complex than those in level 1. Page 5 (Lesson 5): My world page Scene close to the child’s world, represented by photos. The aim of this lesson is to develop oral comprehension skills, through listening to the new language in context, through dialogues spoken by native children. Moral and Civic Education is included here when possible. Page 6 (Lesson 6): Reading, writing and Pen to Paper activity A full-page pen to paper activity to practise the lexis of the unit and recycle the vocabulary of past units. This page focuses on the development of reading and writing skills and fine motor skill, starting with pre-reading and pre-writing activities. It also provides an opportunity for the pupils to work independently. Page 7 (Lesson 7): Listening task The aim of this lesson is to assess the unit vocabulary through a listening task. Children can focus on demonstrating their understanding of vocabulary using their listening skills. This page will include activities such as: listen and circle, listen and point, listen and join the dots, listen and match, listen and say... Page 8 (Lesson 8): My page This lesson will allow children to relate the new vocabulary to their own familiar world and experience. This is also an opportunity for the children to express their preferences.

What are the components of the course? Pupil’s book The pupil’s book consists of one Starter unit for introducing the course characters, and in level 2 and 3 for reviewing key vocabulary of the previous course; eight core units with a central theme which corresponds to the children’s age; stickers, gommets and sticker awards at the end of the book, together with a Playhouse and a Pandy puppet cut out. Stickers. There is a sticker section in the Pupil’s book. In Lesson 4 of each unit, the children are asked to use the stickers as part of a picture recognition task, to promote pre-reading skills. This lesson will develop the children’s comprehension, observation and fine motor skills. In addition, there are some reward stickers to be used throughout the course and whenever the teacher feels that the children should be praised. This will help the learners to experience a sense of achievement and satisfaction. Gommets. They are small round stickers of different colours, used to identify and classify key vocabulary in different scenes. They are used to practise and learn colours too. There are instructions of when and how to use them in the development of the lessons in the Teacher’s notes. Sticker awards. These are stickers of achievement, children need to be rewarded. Praise and encouragement are an integral part of teaching very young learners. They can be given during any lesson, or during the last lesson of the school year.


Playhouse cut out. The children cut out this playhouse with the help of the teacher or their parents. Then they can use it in class in some games, for example playing hide and seek with small toys or flashcards. Pandy cut out. The children cut out this Pandy with the help of the teacher or their parents. It can be used as the children’s puppet, they can interact with it, sing songs, say chants or dialogues. Activity book The Activity Book reinforces and consolidates the target language of the unit. Most of them are ‘Pen to paper activities’ where the children develop fine motor skills, observation skills pre-reading and pre-writing skills and review songs and chants. There are four pages per Unit and one Take home page every two units. At the end of the Activity Book there is a Picture dictionary to colour. Take home English pages. They are pull-out pages, so each one has two pages (front and back). There are four Take home pages in each level. The children may bring these pages home for a home-school connection. The aim of these pages is to reinforce content of previous units, and do something different. Normally the children will play with these pages, enjoy the learning experience and develop their visual-spatial skills. It is important that the children use these pages in the class with their teachers first of all, and then take them home. It is necessary that the children’s parents or guardians receive information about these pages, so as to help the children with them. Children at this age cannot use scissors well yet, but teachers can help them, or they can cut the page out at home and do the page with their family. Teacher’s book Full colour, teacher’s book gives step-by step teaching instructions for each lesson of the core units and the starter unit in the Pupil’s book, instructions for the Activity book, and Take home pages. It also features the following elements:

Reinforcement and extension activities at the end of the lessons. Children learn at their own pace and these activities allow teachers to meet the needs of different types of learners. Panda Pointers. The Teacher’s Book includes ‘pointers’ and tips for teachers who are insecure or have little experience in the pre-school classroom. The pointers will be clearly presented and will help teachers with classroom management. Lyrics for the chants and songs as well as the audioscripts for the dialogues and listening activities. Pre-story and post-story pages. These pages prepare the children for the story and review the story and the key vocabulary in the follow-up activities. Establish routines. Young children benefit from establishing routines. It gives them a sense of security when they know what to expect. For example, lessons always begin with the Hello routine and end with the Goodbye routine. There are some routine chants and transitions especially in levels 2 and 3. They help to structure the lesson. Audio material The audio CD includes all the chants, songs, dialogues, listening tasks and the storycards. There are two types of CDs. One for the teacher with all the audio (Class CD) and a Child’s CD with the chants, songs and stories. Flashcards The 60 full colour flashcards represent the key vocabulary of the whole course. In the Teacher’s book, there are clear instructions for using them in the presentation, practice and consolidation stages, as well as their use in many games too. The Pandy puppet Children love puppets, and Pandy puppet can be used in a variety of ways. Pandy puppet plays an important role in the lessons. It helps the teacher present and practise the language, It will be a powerful means of communication. Pandy can interact with the children and the teacher in their real and fantasy worlds.


Storycards Stories are part of the real children’s world; they will respond positively to the story, and develop a positive attitude towards the target language. The main reasons for using stories with young learners is to develop comprehension and concentration skills. They encourage active participation while teaching values and social skills. Stories help transmit authentic rhythm and intonation: they train the ear and help the children to recognise and imitate the music of the language. There are three stories at each level, the main characters are Pandy and his friends, they are presented in a vivid and clear context, the illustrations help to convey meaning. Both the context and the situation anchor the vocabulary. The audioscripts are printed on the back of each storycard. Interactive posters The interactive posters provide important visual support for practising key vocabulary, there are instructions on when and how to use them in the Teacher’s notes. Coloured Shapes Poster Level 1: It can be used to identify colours and shapes, to match colour flashcards to coloured shapes, to put Pandy puppet on a particular colour or shape (Put Pandy on the red square...) Level 2: It can be used to identify colours and shapes, to match vocabulary flashcards to coloured shapes, to put vocabulary flashcards face down on a shape and play a memory game (Where is the pencil? On the red square...) Level 3: It can be used to identify colours and shapes, to match vocabulary flashcards to coloured shapes, to put vocabulary flashcards face down on a shape and play a memory game, to play a TPR game (Run and touch the red square, jump to the blue shape...) Playhouse poster There is photocopiable door for the Playhouse for the teachers on page 111. Photocopy it, cut it out and colour it, then stick it onto the poster with glue or tape. The door will open and close. Teachers can place a flashcard behind the door with blue tack and encourage the children to guess what’s hidden. This can be done: At the start of the Unit: Guess what’s behind the door, then explain that this is what they are going to be working on. For games: knock, knock, knock, 1, 2, 3. What’s behind the door? Let’s look and see. To review key vocabulary: Put a flashcard behind the door and ask the children to find and name it. At the beginning and end of the lesson: Open the door to show the lesson is starting and close the door when it’s time to go.

• • • •

Alphabet Poster The teacher can use the Alphabet Poster like a picture dictionary as the children are learning the words. Evaluation Evaluation is an integral part of the learning process. At this level assessment should be global, continuous and formative. The main technique in the evaluation process is the direct and systematic observation of pupils during the course. The whole process should be evaluated in order to obtain significant, valid and reliable data. So, apart from the content of the course, we need to evaluate: The children: their participation in activities, their interest in carrying out the activities, their attitude towards their classmates, their work, such as drawings, take home pages... The teacher: Their pedagogical methods, classroom techniques, material used in the classroom, their attitude towards the children.

Repeat with other words from the unit. If the children are already quite confident with the new words, say a colour and get the children to say the name of the object on the colour, for example: Red - Slide

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children

where page 5 is. Explain that Sue is with her father and Pandy in the park. Ask the children about the weather and remind them of the key vocabulary words from the previous lesson. Point to Sue and ask: Who’s this? (Sue). Point to Pandy and say: Oh! Look! Pandy’s under the slide! Point to Sue’s daddy and say: Look! Here’s Sue’s daddy. He’s on the bench. Point to Sue and say: Look! Sue’s in the sandpit.

Panda pointer To make prepositions of place easier to remember, encourage the children to do simple TPR hand signals to accompany the prepositions. For example, to show on, place one hand on top of the other; to show in, place one hand inside the other; to show under, place one hand beneath the other. Keep in mind that associating words with actions aids memory.

children to say yes or no according to whether the information is correct or not. For example, say: Sue’s daddy is on the slide (No). Pandy is under the sandpit (No). Ask the children to count the trees, flowers and birds in the picture. Tell the children to finish the picture by tracing along the dotted lines. As they are working, walk around the class checking their progress. Moral and Civic Education

• Point out to the children (in L1 if need be) that it’s sometimes fun to play on our own and to create things on our own, just as Sue is doing with her sandcastle.

• Place a chair and a bag or box at the front of the room. Call on various children or pairs of children to come to the front of the room. Say, for example: Pandy is under the chair. The children place Pandy under the chair. Repeat with other children and other instructions. More confident children in the class can give instructions to their classmates.

Closing

• Collect the class books. • Play the Bye Bye Song (CD Track 06) and wave good-bye to the children using Pandy. Listen again, encouraging the children to wave.

• Option: Hand out play-dough or plasticine to the children, and tell them to make something they find in a park out of the plasticine. If necessary, place the unit flashcards on the board or around the room.

Panda Pointer It is sometimes important for the children to be allowed a creative outlet in the English class. Encouraging the children to make key vocabulary items out of different materials helps them remember words better, and at the same time helps them with muscle development in their hands.

• Collect the Class Books and distribute the

Activity Books and crayons. Before looking at the book, revise: How many? with different objects in the classroom. For example, point to the windows in the classroom and say: How many windows? One? Two? Three? and elicit the correct answer from the children. Repeat with other items. More confident children can be encouraged to point to items in the class and ask: How many?

Elicit: Two from the children, then tell them to point to the number 2 next to the swing and to circle it.

Panda Pointer Not all of the children will feel confident reading numbers. Be sure to provide help and support for children who are struggling. Extension Revise numbers by getting the children to count various items in the picture. Say for example: Count the stars! and get the children to count together: One, two, three, four, five! Alternatively, use the picture to do a colour dictation. For example say: Colour the bike blue! Go round the class checking that all the children are managing, and congratulate them on their efforts.

Children at a higher level can try to ask full questions. Collect the Class Books, distribute the Activity Books and red, yellow and green crayons. Tell the children to show you different crayons. For example: Show me red (the children hold up their red crayon). Help the children to find page 7, and talk about what they can see in each row. Say: Look at the first row! and say the items: Sandpit, slide, swings, encouraging the children to read with you. Explain the task: the children have to circle the


corresponding picture according to your instructions. They then have to listen to find out what colour the object is. They do NOT colour the object right away, they just draw a dot of the colour. Demonstrate the activity with the class using the first row as an example. Once the children are sure of the colours for each object, they can finish colouring them. Say: A sandpit.
