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 Pundy 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. 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. 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. 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 children will play with these pages, enjoy the learning experience and develop their visual-spatial skills. It is important that 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 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 feature 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 CD. One for the teacher with all the audio (Class CD) and a Child’s CD with the chants, songs and stories. Flashcards The 24 full colour flashcards represent the key vocabulary of the whole course. In the Teacher’s book, there are clear guidelines 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 tool. 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 of 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 shape, 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 95. 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 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 practices, classroom techniques, materials used in the classroom, their attitude towards the children.

Stick the six flashcards face down on the board, and draw a table with two columns containing the words Red and Blue on the board, to write the teams’ scores in. Invite a member from each team to come up to the board one at a time, and try and guess the name of the object featured on the front of the flashcard. If they guess correctly they get a point, otherwise it’s the other team’s turn to try and guess. Whoever succeeds in guessing the object featured on the card scores a point, and the team with the most points, once all the flashcards have been turned face up, wins.

where page 33 is. Look at the pictures and ask the children about the colours of the toys (What colour is the teddy bear?). Say the series of images with the children (teddy bear, doll, teddy bear, doll) and encourage them to say what comes next in the series. Follow the same procedure for the kite – puzzle series. Explain the task. Then help the children find the sticker page at the back of their Class Books on page 73, and show them where the teddy bear and the puzzle stickers are. Tell them to peel the teddy bear off first, and place it over the grey teddy bear at the end of the first row on page 33. Monitor and help any children who have difficulty peeling off the stickers and sticking them in the correct place. Repeat with the puzzle.

Extension Sit the children in a circle. Put the following toys and classroom objects in the centre: a ball, a doll,

a teddy bear, a puzzle, a book, a pencil, a crayon. Ask different children to follow your instructions: (Rosa), give me the (ball), please! When the child does the action, say: Thank you! In order to practise colours, put objects of different colours and ask for example. (Juana) give me the (pink crayon), please! Make a Toys poster. Show the children magazine cutouts of toys (4 teddy bears, 4 dolls, 4 kites, 4 puzzles, 4 balls). Divide the children up into two groups and give each group a large colourful sheet of poster paper and half of the magazine cut outs. Explain to the children that they have to put the toys in a series like the teddy bear and doll one in their books. Give out some tubes of glue to each group, and tell the children to stick the pictures of the toys alternately on the poster paper, in order to make the series. When all the posters are finished, stick them on the wall of the classroom for the whole class to see.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children •

where page 45 is. Explain the task in L1 if necessary: the children have to draw one of the pets pictured in the frame. Draw their attention to the frame and elicit the names of the animals. Encourage the children to show their pictures and say for example: (This is) my fish.

Closing

• Collect the Class Books. • Sing the Bye Bye song (CD Track 06) using Pandy at the end of the lesson.

Extension Make a Pet Shop poster. Show the children different magazine cutouts of pets (dogs, cats,

mice, goldfish, birds, rabbits). Divide the children up into four groups and give each group a large colourful sheet of poster paper. Lay the magazine cutouts face down on your desk and invite each group to come to the front of the class and take a pet each. Give out some glue sticks to each group, and tell the children to stick the pictures of the pets in the middle of the poster paper, and then draw a picture of themselves near their pet. When all the posters are finished, stick them on the wall in a corner of the classroom for the whole class to see.

Panda Pointer Children at this age are very sensitive, so it is better not to talk about the pets children have at home, just in case some don’t have any pets.

• Play the Hello song (CD Track 04) and greet the children using Pandy. • Say Hello to the class using the Panda puppet. Encourage the children to say Hello Pandy! • Listen and sing the song “Happy Helper” from Unit 2 (CD Track 11). • Show Pandy to the class and have a conversation with him. Ask What’s your name? Make the puppet answers: I’m Pandy. The puppet can then ask various children in the class their names.

Lesson

• Use the flashcards for biscuits, milk and apple.

Show the cards and say the words to the class. Hide different cards behind the door of the playhouse. Peek behind the door and ask What is it? Apple? Open the door and check. Repeat with the other objects. Hold up the flashcards one by one and ask: What is this? What are these? Distribute the Class Books and show the children where page 46 is. To demonstrate what happened to Pandy, pick up more books all at once than you should and pretend to almost drop them. Explain that, just like Pandy, you were trying to carry too much. Talk about the picture with the children. Point to the characters and ask: Who’s this? (Ben, Pandy, mummy, daddy). Is this Pandy? (No, it’s Ben) etc. Talk about how the characters feel. Point to Ben and ask: Is he happy? Repeat with Pandy and with

• • •

daddy. Point out that Pandy is trying to carry too many things. Draw the children’s attention to the window and say: Look! A window! Ask them what animals they can see in the garden (cat, bird). 53

Moral and Civic education Talk to the children about the importance of setting reasonable goals. Ask the children if they have ever tried to carry too many things all at once. Ask them what they think is going to happen to Pandy. Explain that sometimes it’s better to make ‘two trips’ than to try and carry more than we are able to. Talk to the children (in L1 if need be) about who they have breakfast with and who helps them in the morning.

Panda Pointer Keep in mind that not all children have ‘traditional’ or stable home situations. Take this into account, and don’t place emphasis on ‘right or wrong’ domestic settings.

• Place the food flashcards (milk, biscuits, apple) on

the board. Say the words as you point to the cards. Play the chant Breakfast Time and do the actions (CD Track 27). Point to the new vocabulary items and at the end of the chant say: Look! Milk! Look! A biscuit! Look! An apple as each item is said.


Unit 6

My Breakfast

Track 27 Speaker: Listen and say the chant. Ben: Milk, biscuit, apple (point to flashcards) Milk, biscuit, apple (point to flashcards) Yummy, yummy breakfast (rub tummy) All for me! (point to oneself) Pandy: Milk, biscuit, apple, Milk, biscuit, apple, Yummy, yummy breakfast, All for me! Ohhhh!! (pretend to be off balance, about to fall)

• Play the chant again (CD Track 27) and encourage the children to do the actions.

Panda Pointer Keep in mind that for some of the children in the class it will be difficult to do all the actions as they listen to the chant. Do not expect the children to participate fully or repeat the words until they have heard the chant a few times.

54

• Option: Act out the chant with different children or • •

groups of children using realia (empty milk carton, empty biscuit box, apple). The children can then pass the items from one to another saying the words. Collect the Class Books and distribute the Activity Books Look at page 24 and elicit vocabulary from previous units (book, kite, etc.) Point to the different characters and ask Who’s this? Ben or Pandy? What has Pandy got? Milk or biscuits? Repeat for Ben. Ask the children to count the biscuits (1, 2, 3) then to count the glasses (3). Explain to the children that there are some apples hidden in the picture. Tell them that they have to find the apples and colour them. When they have finished ask How many apples are there?

Closing

• Collect the Activity Books. • Play the Bye Bye song (CD Track 06) and wave good-bye to the children using Pandy.

Extension Encourage the children to draw a picture of themselves having breakfast with their family. Label the drawing and write the date on it. Keep the picture in a file folder with the child’s name. This material can be used at a later date as part of a Portfolio assessment plan. Tell the children to take out their ‘gommets’ from the end of the book. Say: Mummy (the children place a sticker on mummy) Say: Daddy (the children place a sticker on daddy)

saying Hello to different children. Have Pandy ask different children or groups of children if they are happy today (Are you happy?) Play the Breakfast Time chant (CD Track 27) and encourage the children to participate by doing the actions. Review the words milk, apple and biscuit using the flashcards. Place each flashcard on a different wall or different area on the board and say, for example Point to milk. Show the flashcard for orange juice and mime drinking a glass of juice. Say: Mmmm. Yummy. Juice. Encourage the children to do the same. Ask them what colour the juice is (orange). Mime eating a bowl of cereal and encourage the children to do the same. Hide the food and drink cards one by one behind the door on the playhouse poster. Have the children pretend to knock on the door, open the door, say the word, then have the children say ‘Yummy’ and rub their tummies, or ‘Yuck’ and shake their heads to indicate if they like this item or not. In order to review the numbers, have the children knock three times and count aloud: 1-2-3 or say: 12-3, What’s behind the door? Look with me.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children

where page 47 is. Point to Pandy and ask: Who’s this? (Pandy). What colour is his crayon? Pink or green? (Green) Name the items in the left hand column (apple, cereal, juice) and explain to the children what they have to do (join the pictures). As they join the images, they should be encouraged to say, for example, apple-apple.

• When the children have finished joining the items they can colour the orange juice, bowl and apple on the right hand side. Congratulate the children on their good work.

Panda Pointer Keep in mind that children at this age have not yet established the ability to colour within the lines. Be sure to reward them for their effort. Positive reinforcement is very important. Moral and Civic education Point out to the children (in L1 if need be) that apples are very good for you and talk to them about the importance of having breakfast every morning. Play the flashcard Game Breakfast Time. Tell the children to sit in a circle. Show the cards for the unit (cereal, apple, juice, biscuit, milk). Tell the children to pretend they are at a restaurant having breakfast and explain that you are the waiter (do this in L1 if need be). Tell them that if they like something they say: Yes, please! when it’s offered to them. If not, they say: No, thank you. Go around the circle showing the cards and saying, for example: Hello Emilio. Do you want milk?

Invite the children or groups of children to touch or point to the cards. Introduce the numbers 4 and 5. Draw an apple on the board and say: Look. One apple. Draw another apple and say: Look. One, two apples. Continue like this until there are five apples drawn on the blackboard. Option: Use green chalk for the apples or, instead of drawing them bring in 5 pictures of apples. Alternatively: bring 5 green apples to class and pull them out of a bag one by one, counting them each time.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children

• •

where page 48 is. Look at the picture and identify the characters (Ben, Gina, Pandy). Point to a green apple and ask What’s this? What colour is it? Draw the children’s attention to Pandy. Explain that Pandy is about to catch an apple that is falling off the wall. Count the apples with the children (1-2-3-4-5). (CD Track 28) Listen to the song and show the children the actions. Listen again encouraging the children to do the actions. As the children listen to the song, erase an apple off the blackboard with each verse, or take an apple off the table. When the children are familiar with the song, invite five children to come to the front of the room and explain that each time an apple ‘falls’, one child has to return to his or her place.

Four green apples sitting on a wall, Four green apples sitting on a wall. If one of these apples accidently falls, There are three green apples sitting on the wall. Three green apples… Two green apples… One green apple sitting on a wall, One green apple sitting on a wall. If this apple accidently falls, There are no green apples sitting on the wall. (show empty hands to show no more apples)

Panda Pointer Keep in mind that the children should not be expected to sing all the words to the song. Encourage them to try to sing the numbers and to understand the concept of the apples falling off the wall one by one.

• After the song, take out the panda puppet and say: Pandy, Pandy, come and see, who is quiet as can be? Encourage the children to be very, very quiet and still.


• When the children have finished singing/acting out the song, they can colour the remaining apples • Option: Instead of colouring, the children can fill in •

the apples, by spreading plasticine over the area or sticking little pieces of coloured green paper onto the apples. When the apples are coloured say: Let’s count the apples: 1-2-3-4-5. Collect the Class Books and distribute the Activity Books. Turn to page 25 and ask the children to name the characters (Ben, Gina, Pandy, mummy). Point to the biscuits and ask: How many biscuits? (Four). Point to the apples and ask How many apples? (Five). Encourage the children to mime Pandy carrying the basket. Ask Is Pandy happy? (No) Point to Gina. Ask Is Gina happy? (Yes). Point to the dotted lines around the picture of the table, chair and window. Explain to children that they need to trace over the lines. As they are working, walk around the class checking their work and helping those who are struggling. Optional activity: if there’s time, the children can colour the apples in Pandy’s basket.

Closing

• Collect the Activity Books. • Sing the Bye Bye song (CD Track 06) using Pandy at the end of the lesson.

Extension Encourage the children to count different things in the classroom. For example, show them four books and say Let’s count the books. Draw three biscuits on the board and do a rhyme with the children. As you do each verse, rub out a biscuit from the board. Encourage the children to hold up their fingers as they say the rhyme: Let’s count the biscuits you can see How many are there? 1 – 2 – 3 How many are there? 1 and 2 - One for me, and one for you Let’s count the biscuits you can see One little biscuit! All for me!

items. Hide a flashcard behind the door of the playhouse, knock on the door, then encourage the children to guess what it is. Play the Memory game: Show the children the flashcards for milk, juice, cereal and biscuit. Place each card on one of the sections of the coloured shapes poster. Ask Where’s the milk? Red or blue? (the children say the colour of the shape the flashcard for milk is placed on). When the children have seen/said the words, turn the cards over one by one. Point to the card which is face down and ask: What’s this? Repeat until all four cards are face up again. See if the children like milk, biscuits and apples. Point to the different cards and say: Apple, yummy yummy as you rub your tummy. Point to the card again and say: Apple, yuck, yuck as you shake your head and stick out your tongue showing dislike. Ask different children or groups of children to show if they like apples, biscuits, milk, juice and cereal in the same way.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children

where page 49 is. Look at the pictures and point out that the orange tray on the yellow background represents Yummy, and the blue tray on the green background represents Yuck! Tell the children to look at their stickers for Unit 6 on page 74. Explain that they need to stick the food on the orange tray if they like it, and on the blue tray if they don’t.

Children at this age are still developing fine motor skills. Some will have problems peeling off the stickers and many will not place them in the exact spot. This is not a problem as they are in the process of developing their eye-hand coordination. Moral and Civic education Explain the importance of showing respect and tolerance for the tastes and opinions of others.

Extension Sit the children in a circle. Place the flashcards for milk, cereal, juice, biscuit, apple in the centre of the circle with space around them for the children to move. Invite one group of 4 children to stand up and hold hands. Say, for example: I like biscuits and tell the children to form a circle around the flashcard for biscuit on the floor. They say: I like (biscuits). Repeat with other groups of children and other words. Divide a large piece of card into 5 columns. Draw a picture at the top of each column: an apple, a glass of orange juice, a glass of milk, a biscuit, cereal. Give each child a piece of coloured card. One by one, invite the children to come to the front of the class and place their coloured card (using blue tack) in the column of the food or drink they like most. At the end, see which food or drink the class like best. Hand out the flashcards to different pupils. Then say, for example, Maria, give me the biscuit, please. When the child hands the card to you say Thank you. Collect the Class Books.

Lesson

Distribute the Class Books and show the children where page 51 is. Look at the page and ask the children to point to Pandy, Ben and Gina. Ask them to point to the windows and the table. They can also point to the rabbit, the bird, the kite and the book. Ask, for example: What colour is the kite? Is Pandy happy? Is Gina happy? Talk about the mess in the playhouse and encourage the

children to think about what to do next. Distribute the crayons and explain the task. Allow time for the children to trace the route of the apple that has fallen from Ben’s hands. As the children are working, walk around the room checking progress and helping those who are struggling.

Panda Pointer For children this age, tracing curved lines is more complicated than straight, horizontal and vertical lines. Encourage the children through positive reinforcement and don’t expect ‘perfection’. Moral and Civic education In L1, talk about the fact that we all make ‘mistakes’ sometimes (dropping things, spilling things). Explain that it’s ok to make mistakes but we need to clean up when things go wrong.

around the room talking to individual children. When they have finished, they can show their picture to a friend. Children who are more confident, can try to explain their pictures using the new words they have learned in English, for example, I have juice for breakfast. Collect the books and congratulate the children on their good work. Tell the children to stand up. Say: Yummy! Yummy! Rub your tummy! and do the actions a few times. When they have finished, they can sit down.

Moral and Civic education Remind the children that breakfast is a very important meal.

Panda Pointer Keep in mind that it’s not always easy to distinguish what children have drawn. In order to treat the situation with care, it’s better to say: “Why don’t you tell me something about your picture?” rather than “What’s this? A biscuit?”

Explain to the children that Pandy is going on a picnic with Ben and Gina. Tell them to guess what items they are going to take on the picnic. Will they take all five things? Which things might they leave behind? Encourage the children to guess and to join with a line to the basket, the things they THINK Pandy will take on the picnic. Note: there are no ‘right or wrong’ answers here. This is just a prediction activity to get children interested in the story.

Moral and Civic education Talk to the children about the importance of drinking milk for strong healthy bones and teeth.

Panda Pointer Keep in mind that some children will struggle with the idea of guessing/predicting answers. The more children practise this, the easier it will be for them. Encourage them to make calculated guesses and to take risks.

Teaching Tips

Take home pages Take home pages - Activity Book Page 37-44 The take home pages are pull-out pages with two pages each (front and back). The children may take them home in order to create a link between school and home. The aim of these pages is to reinforce the content of previous units, while carrying out an alternative activity. These pages should be treated as games for the children to play with. They are supposed to be used at school with the teacher first, so that the children are fully aware of what to do with them before taking them home. The children’s parents or guardians should receive information on how these pages are to be used, in order to help the children play with them successfully. Note: Children at this age cannot use scissors well yet. But different options may be adopted such as using punchers, having the teacher help, cutting the page out at home and doing the page with family. There are four Take home pages in Pandy the panda one:

Take home page 1: Make a puzzle.

(Activity Book pages 37 and 38)

Key Vocabulary: Family and bedroom. This page is to be carried out after Units 1 and 2 and can be found on pages 37 and 38 of the Activity Book. Focus the children’s attention on the two scenes, and elicit the key vocabulary by pointing to different items in the pictures. Then, explain to the children that they have to cut the scenes into four pieces in order to make a puzzle, and then put it back together to form the scene again. Tell the children to colour the two scenes or the scene they like the most, before they cut along the dotted lines to turn it into a puzzle. Once the children have made the puzzle, tell them they can take it home to play with it with their family. 88

Take home page 2: Make a mask.

(Activity Book pages 39 and 40)

Key Vocabulary: Robot, doll and colours. This page is to be carried out after Units 3 and 4 and can be found on pages 39 and 40 of the Activity Book. Focus the children’s attention on the two masks of the doll and the robot, and elicit the key vocabulary. Then, explain to the children that they have to decide which mask they like best, colour it, then with the help of the teacher (or someone at home) help them cut/punch out the mask specially the eyes.

Take home page 3: Colour, cut and sing Five green apples. (Activity Book pages 41 and 42) Key Vocabulary: Pandy, apple, green, and counting from one to five. This page is to be carried out after Units 5 and 6 and can be found on pages 41 and 42 of the Activity Book. Focus the children’s attention on the picture and elicit the key vocabulary. Then, explain to the children that they have to cut (with the help of their teacher or someone at home) along the dotted lines, and fold the rectangles where the apples are, behind the wall one by one according to the song, making the apples gradually disappear or ‘fall down’ behind the wall as they do in the song.

Take home page 4: Colour, cut and dress Pandy. (Activity Book pages 43 and 44) Key Vocabulary: Clothes and review of colours. This page is to be carried out after Units 7 and 8 and can be found on pages 43 and 44 of the Activity Book. Focus the children’s attention on the picture and elicit the key vocabulary. Then explain to the children that they have to colour and cut out Pandy and his clothes (with the help of the teacher or an adult at home) and then play the game, by putting on or taking off his coat, scarf and sunhat.


Teaching Tips

Games Introduction Games are particularly important, as children play everywhere. They form part of a child’s daily activity and experience. Children interact with their playmates, have fun and use language in a natural and uninhibited way through playing games. Julia Khan says “Children play and children want to play, they learn through playing. In playing together, children interact and in interacting they develop language skills” Games provided: • Contexts for play • Reasons for playing • Routines for playing Language practice games: They involve repeated use of a particular language item, where the language form is given and controlled. These games are like language drills, they offer opportunities for repetition of language items that are intended to be learned, because it is assumed that engaging in such repetition will lead to learning of the language. Using games may certainly be an effective way of making repetition of language natural and purposeful for young learners.

Games bank Flashcard games They help the children to develop their interpersonal or social intelligence. The flashcards are colour coded, they can be used as a colour code to identify, associate and classify words.

Who are you? Give the character flashcards to 3 different children. Ask: Who are you? They show their card and say, for example: I’m Ben. Knock, knock! Use the flashcards for Pandy, Ben, mummy, daddy. Show the cards and say the words to the class. Hide different cards behind the door of the playhouse. Knock on the table and say: Who’s in the playhouse? Mummy? Pandy? Open the door and check. Repeat with the other characters. This game can be used with different lexical sets by changing the question: What’s in the playhouse? Favourite colour: Stick the colour flashcards around the classroom. Explain to the children in L1 that they have to say their favourite colour, stand up, and touch the corresponding colour on the wall. Tell the children to stay near the colour until the end of the game, so they can see who likes the same colour. Guess! Play the following game with the flashcards (eg. table, chair, window, etc). Shuffle the cards. Then place them face-down on your table. Choose one picture and show it to the class without looking at it. Ask: Table? Book? Etc. Invite the children to say No until you guess the correct word. When you guess the word, say it and ask the children to repeat the word with you. Shuffle the cards and play again. Touch! Play a game with the flashcards of a unit. Place the cards on different sides of the classroom. Invite a child or groups of children to touch the cards according to your instructions Say: Touch the (dog). The rest of the class repeats the word aloud. Look and guess! Play this game with the unit flashcards. Show the cards and ask the children to identify them. Then put the cards on your table, choose one card and cover it with a piece of paper so the children can’t see it. Move the paper around slowly and ask: What is it? A dog? A mouse? The children say the word when they recognise the animal. Repeat with different cards. (It is more challenging to put the flashcard upside down.) Pass game! Use the flashcards of a unit and play the following game. Sit the children in a circle. Hold up a flashcard of (a coat) and say: I’ve got a coat. Pass it to the child beside you, and get him/her to do the same. Continue passing the flashcard until all the children have had a turn, then repeat with the other (clothes) or flashcards from different units.

Open and close! Tell the children to open and close their books according to your instructions. Give instructions very slowly at first and gradually get faster and faster. A variation of this game is with the children using their eyes and mouths! Demonstrate by saying Open! and open your eyes and mouth at the same time. Then say Close! and close your eyes and mouth at the same time. Tell the children to listen and watch very carefully and play the game. Start slowly at first and gradually get faster and faster. Traffic light: Draw a large traffic light on the board, or bring one. Say the following poem and point to the traffic lights and mime while you are saying it. Invite the children to do the actions. STOP says the red light! (Mime stopping and point to the red light) GO says green! (Mime going and point to the green light) WAIT says the yellow light in between! (Mime waiting and point to the yellow light) Roll the dice! Make a large dice with six colours to use in class. Play the game in the following way: First the children roll the dice and then they say: Roll the dice with me! What colour can you see? When the dice stops everybody identifies the colour and says for example Red! On/Under Play this game with Pandy. Place the puppet on and under different objects in the classroom, say: Where’s Pandy? and elicit the corresponding preposition from the children. Then invite a volunteer to the front of the class and ask them to do the same thing with Pandy. Encourage the child to ask: Where’s Pandy? and the rest of the class to answer accordingly. Follow the same procedure by placing a crayon on, and then under your table and chair. Elicit the corresponding preposition On or Under with the question: Where’s the crayon? and: Yes or No with the question: Is the crayon on/under the table/chair?

Happy Helper game! Show the children the actions and say for example: Make the bed! Push the chair! Clean the table! Encourage the children to copy the actions. Explain that you are going to say one of the actions, and that you want them to do it as quickly as they can. Tell the children to stand in a circle at the front/back of the class, and start by saying the actions slowly, and then gradually say them faster and faster. Invite several volunteers to take your place and say the actions. Thank you! Sit the children in a circle. Put the following toys and classroom objects in the centre: a ball, a doll, a teddy bear, a puzzle, a book, a pencil, a crayon. Ask various children to follow your instructions: (Rosa), give me the (ball), please! When the child does the action, say: Thank you! Pass the Parcel. Get a fairly small sized toy, and wrap it up with lots of layers of wrapping paper, and place it in several different sized boxes. Sit the children in a circle, and explain that you are going to play some music, and give them a parcel to pass round the circle to each other. Tell them that when the music stops, whoever’s holding the parcel has to take a sheet of paper off. The child who takes the last sheet of wrapping paper off the toy is the winner, and they get to keep the toy for the rest of the day, or until the next lesson. One, Two, Three Jump! Ask the children to stand in a circle and explain that they are going to play a jumping game. Tell them that when you say One, they have to jump once, Two, they have to jump twice, and Three, they have to jump three times. Invite a volunteer to demonstrate with you to the rest of the class. Start slowly at first, and gradually get faster. Say the numbers in the right order to start with, then backwards and then at random. Invite some of the more confident children to take your place. I like! Sit the children in a circle. Place the food or animal flashcards in the centre of the circle with space around them for the children to move. Invite one group of 4 children to stand up and hold hands. Say, for example: I like (biscuits) and tell the children to form a circle around the flashcard for biscuits on the floor. They say: I like (biscuits) Repeat with other groups of children and other words. The Day/Night game. Bring in a large pile of magazine cutouts depicting day and night scenes (people sleeping, getting up, working, playing, owls at night, starry sky, early morning sky and so on) for the children to look at. Sit the children in a circle, show them one picture at a time, and have them shout out Day or Night accordingly.


Teaching Tips

Games to develop the senses Children perceive reality though their senses, and this helps them to develop intellectual capacities. As young children progress from pre-logical to logical thought, they become increasingly aware of the world around them. These games involve the use of attention and memory which then leads to observation and reasoning.

Guessing game! Invite two volunteers to come to the front of the class and ask one of them to close their eyes. Whisper a word for example: book to the other child, and give them a book to place in their classmate’s hands. Then say: What is it? Once the child has said the word book, allow them to open their eyes and look at the book. Choose two other volunteers and repeat the whole procedure with a pencil. Continue the activity until everyone in the class has had a go. Hunt the colour! You call out a colour and the children in their groups have to find as many objects of that colour in the classroom as they can, within a certain amount of time (an egg timer could be used for this purpose). Divide the children into four or five groups, depending on the size of the class, set the timer and say the word blue. When the timer buzzes, ask the groups to show each other the blue objects they have found. Follow the same procedure for other colours. Guess by touching! A child, with eyes shut, must guess which real (toy) it is, just by touching it. This game can be done with fruit, classroom objects, plastic animals etc. Animal sounds The aim of this game is to identify animals by the sound they make. Show the children the flashcards of the animals one by one. Encourage them to imitate the sound each animal makes. Then divide the class into two groups. Show an animal to the first group and ask them to imitate the sound it makes. The second group has to then identify the animal, according to the sound made by the first group. Repeat this with various animals and finally swap roles.

Story telling tips • • • • • • • •

Use real stories, not just descriptions of pictures. A real story has a beginning, middle and an end, and of course something is going on. Create a relaxed atmosphere which mirrors story telling in the children’s real life. Sit the children around you in a semicircle. The children will notice that something different is going to happen. Use story props, visuals and aural. When listening to a story in a foreign language, children rely heavily on their eyes to help them understand. Young learner’s stories have a lot of repetition, so the children will quickly find it easy to participate in the narration. Children can predict what comes next in the story Children love stories and they love listening to the same story again and again, so take advantage of this. When repeating the story, tell it in your own words. In this way you can create your own version of the story (adapt and improvise) Performance skills. Remember to: - vary the volume - vary the pitch and tempo of your voice - use your face, body and gestures - let your body ‘speak’ - be clearly focused and maintain concentration - maintain engaging eye contact with the children - use different, exaggerated character voices - be dynamic - remember to pace yourself - use silences and pauses to add dramatic effect.
