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. 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.

7


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 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. 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 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 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.

Warm up

• Say: Hello to the children using Pandy and encourage the children to say: Hello, Pandy! • Place the flashcards of the rooms (living room,

kitchen, bathroom) on the table eliciting the name of each while doing it. Place Pandy on one of the card and ask: where’s Pandy? Get the children to answer: in the kitchen. Repeat for all the rooms.

Lesson

• Ask the children in L1 what they remember about •

the story they heard in class. Did they like it? What happened? Where did Sue find her granny? Play the story (CD Track 19) and pause it so the children can join in saying: Where’s granny? and I don’t know. For children who are not confident speaking English, they can simply shrug their shoulders and raise their eyebrow instead of saying I don’t know. When the story is finished, encourage the children to clap. Ask: Where’s granny? Elicit: In the garden. Show the storycards again and get the children to point and name the people. Distribute the Class Books and crayons and help the children find page 29. Point to the characters (granny, little sister, grandad) and get the children to name them. Point to the three pictures on the right and ask: Where’s granny? In the kitchen? In the bathroom? In the garden? Once they have understood granny is in the garden, tell them to draw a line from granny to the correct room on the right of the page. Repeat the same procedure for little sister and grandad. Check that all the children have completed the task correctly and congratulate them on their good work.

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 two: Take home page 1: Make puppets (Activity Book pages 37 and 38) 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 attention to the cards and elicit the family vocabulary pointing at different cards. Tell the children to colour the people and animal in the card and then cut them along the dotted lines. They can use with the cards like puppets.

Take home page 2: Make a puzzle (Activity Book pages 39 and 40) 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.

Take home page 3: Make a crown (Activity Book pages 41 and 42) 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 attention to the items at the botton of the page (toys and animals) and elicit the vocabulary. Then ask the children to cut them and glue on the crown, where they like more. The make the crown more ‘precious’ you can invite the children to decorate it with golden paper. Children can wear the crown at birthdays or during the games, as they like. Take home page 4: Play Dominoes (Activity Book pages 43 and 44) 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 attention to the items and elicit key vocabulary. Then invite the children to colour the drawings and cut along the dotted lines to turn them to dominoes cards. Once the children have made the dominoes, tell them they can take it home to play with it with their family.

Teaching Tips

Games Introduction Games are particularly important, as children play everywhere. They form part of children’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 provides: • 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.

Teaching Tips

Games bank Flashcard games They help the children to develop their interpersonal or social intelligence. The flashcards are colour coded, they can be use as a colour code to identify, associate and classify words. • Who are you? Give the character flashcard 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 and Gina. Show the cards and elicit the characters’ names: Pandy, Ben and Gina. Hide different cards behind the door of the playhouse. Knock on the table and say: Who’s in the playhouse? Ben? Pandy? Gina? Open the door and check. Repeat with the other characters. This game is use with different lexical sets change the question: What’s in the playhouse? • Hello! Place the flashcards of the characters on different walls. Encourage the children to come up in small groups, wave to them and say for example: Hello (Ben) Hello my friend! • 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 colours. • What’s different? Use 3 flashcards of one set for example member of the family and one flashcard of a colour. Point and ask: What’s different? Children have to identify which one is different. They identify that the colour flashcard is different. • Coloured shapes poster: Place different (body) flashcards on the coloured shapes poster using blue tack. Say a word, for example: Head. The children shout out the colour where the card is. Repeat with the other words. If the children are more confident with the language, say, for example: Red and encourage the children to say the name of the picture on the red section of the poster. • Odd one out: Choose colour and family member flashcards. Show them one by one and elicit the words. Then choose three colours and a member of the family. Say the words and elicit the odd one out. Repeat this procedure with different sets of flashcards choosing different odd ones out each time. • Guess! Play the following game with flashcards (eg. table,chair, window). 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? 101 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. • Form a circle: The children sit in a circle. Place the flashcards for boy, girl, granny, grandad, sister, brother, baby in the centre of the circle with space around them for the children to move. Invite groups of 4 children to stand up and hold hands. Say, for example: Look! It’s granny! The children in the group of four form a circle around the flashcard depicting granny. Continue until all the children have taken part in the game.16 • What’s missing? Play with the flashcards of a unit. Show them to the children one by one and ask them to identify each one. Remove one flashcard and repeat the procedure. Encourage the children to identify the missing card. Shuffle the cards and repeat the game several times. • 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 (dog). The rest of the class repeats the word aloud. • Pass the flashcards: Ask the children to sit in a circle and play Pass the flashcards with the whole class. Hand out the flashcards of the unit one by one and elicit the words. Ask the children who haven’t got a flashcard to clap their hands three times: Clap, clap, clap. Then ask the children holding the flashcards to pass them along. Then say: Show me the (sandwich). The child holding the appropriate flashcard shows it. Repeat the procedure many times so all the children have the opportunity of holding up their flashcards. • 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 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. • 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 for example: 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.) • Memory game: Show the children the flashcards of the unit. Select four flashcards. Place each card on one of the sections of the coloured shapes poster. Ask: Where’s the skirt? Green or blue? (children say the colour of the shape the skirt flashcard is on). When the children have seen and said the words, turn the cards face down, one by one. Point to a card which is face down and ask: What’s this? Give the children time to remember, then turn the card over to see if they are right.


Teaching Tips

TPR games They are use to exercise corporal expression, rhythm, miming, spatial orientation and listening comprehension.

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 using the children’s 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. Touch colours!: Play a game using colours. Say: Touch red! The children have to touch something red without moving from his or her seat. Do the same with yellow, white, pink , etc. Pass and show: Pass out the flashcards to six different pupils. Say the words (Example: boy, girl, granny, grandad, mummy, daddy) one by one and encourage the children to hold up their card when they hear the word. When they have each held their card up, tell them to pass the six cards to six different children. Repeat the game until all the children have had a turn. 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). Boy or girl? Randomly pick groups of 5 or 6 children and have them stand in a row at the front of the class. Hold your hand above the head of different children and encourage the rest of the class to say boy or girl. Repeat with different groups of children. Simon says: Play this game using the actions learnt so far. For example: Clap your hands! Shake your arms! Bend your legs! Touch the ground! Touch your shoulders! Children do the action if it the teacher says Simon says! ‘Hide and Seek’: Explain (in L1 if need be) that one person counts while the others hide. Use the panda puppet to do an example. Invite a child to come to the front of the class and tell him or her to cover his or her eyes. The rest of the class counts to six aloud while the panda puppet is hidden somewhere in the room. Say: Open your eyes and the child at the front tries to find Pandy. Repeat this procedure more times. Use page 23 of the Pupil’s book to play hide and seek with the characters. Pandy is counting and the children can hide the character stickers in the rooms of the house. Point: Place four flashcards of the unit on different sides of the class and ask the children to point to them according to your instructions. Say, for example: Point to the (mouse). Repeat this with the other animals very slowly first then more quickly to make the activity like a game. It’s raining! Take out the cut outs of raindrops and snowflakes. Ask the children to stand in a circle. Ask them to go round while you drop some raindrops on their heads. Say: It’s raining. Encourage them to say: It’s raining. As the raindrops are falling. Then the children will have a lot of fun picking the drops up. Then do the same with the snowflakes. Say: It’s snowing. 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?


Teaching Tips

Games in a circle These help the children to practise language and develop gross motor skills.

The playhouse: Get the children to sit in a circle. Say: Follow me. Let’s make a circle. When the children are seated, slowly and mysteriously open up the playhouse poster and show it to the class. Say: Look! It’s a playhouse. Point to the playhouse and ask: What’s this? to different children. Encourage them to try to repeat the word: playhouse. Statues: Ask the children to form a circle. Then play some music and ask them to dance. Stop the music and say: Touch your shoulders! The children remain in this position till the music begins again. Repeat this many times using different instructions. 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 them 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 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 the colours, use different coloured objects and ask for example: (Rosa) Give me the purple ball, please! Count and give: Children sit in a circle. Put some apples, pears and bananas in the centre. Ask various children to follow your instructions, for example: (Paula) Give me three apples, please! When the child does the action say: Thank you! In order to practice counting, invite the class to count aloud. Say: one, two, three apples. Repeat the game with the rest of the items asking for one, two or three items. Hide and seek 2nd version: Play with the flashcards of house and food. Ask the children to sit in a circle. Show the flashcards of the house one by one and elicit the rooms. Put them on the floor in the centre of the circle so everybody can see them. Then distribute the food flashcards and ask different children to show their flashcard and say the word, for example: a banana. Then ask everybody to close their eyes and the child who’s got 103 the banana hides it under a room of a house. Then ask: Is the banana in the bedroom? Elicit Yes or No. Ask till the children guess where the banana is. Repeat the game with the rest of the food. Once the children are familiar with the game, help them to ask the questions. 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 wrapping 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 biscuit 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 cut-outs 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 the reality though their senses and this help 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.

Let’s make animal sounds: Choose an animal flashcard and imitate the animal sound without showing it to the children. They guess the animal and say for example: (It’s a) cat. Show them the flashcard to confirm their answer. Repeat this procedure asking different children to imitate the animal sounds. Another option: Divide the class into different groups of animals. Show a flashcard and encourage the children from that group to make the correct noise. The rest of the class says the name of the animal. Guess by touching! Place the realia one by one in a paper bag (examples: apple, banana, pear, empty orange juice carton) Elicit the words: apple, banana, pear, orange juice. Ask various children to identify them by touching them. Ask for example: (Rosa) give me the pear! Rosa puts her hand inside the bag and searches for the pear without looking inside. She takes it out, shows it to the class and says: a pear. Ask: what colour is it? Elicit its colour (brown? green?). Repeat this game with the rest of the children. This game can be done with toys, classroom objects, plastic animals etc.4 Smell and say! Take a banana, an apple, a pear and an orange, or pieces of each fruit, ask different children to smell the fruit one by one. Smell and say: Orange! Yummy! Do the same with all the items. Then ask the children to close their eyes and guess the fruit just by smelling it. Series: Give each child a piece of coloured paper, make sure you give out an even number of colours, for example: 4 blue, 4 red, 4 pink... Select 3 children (according to the colours they have) and get them to stand in a line creating a colour sequence, for example blue + blue + red + ... Then ask the class which colour is needed to complete the sequence (red). Repeat with the other group of four and other colour sequences until all the children have had a turn. 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 to measure time). 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 others colours. Choo-choo game! Ask the children to stand in a circle and follow your instructions: You are trains! Choo-choo! Encourage the children to move as a train and make its noise. Then say: Stop! Follow with a car-beep beep! Then a plane-Whoosh! Repeat the game saying the means of transport and encourage the children to mime them. Yes or No game. Use the illustrations of the unit.. Say sentences about the pictures, for example: Gina’s wearing a blue skirt. Then say: one – two – three and encourage the children to say Yes or No according to the picture. 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. 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 animal each animal makes. Then divide the class into two groups, show one animal to one group and ask them to imitate the sound it makes. Then the other group has to identify it according to the sound it makes. Repeat this with different animals and finally swap roles.


Teaching Tips

Story telling tips • • • • • • • •

Use real stories, not just description 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 real children’s life. Sit the children close and around you in a semicircle. 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 it is easy for the children to participate very soon 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, take advantage of this. In the repetition, tell the story 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 • Pitch and tempo of your voice • use your face, body and gesture • let your body speaks • have a clear focus 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
