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.

Place four of the flashcards face up on the coloured shapes poster. Say, for example: Slide! Encourage the children to say the colour where the flashcard of the slide is. 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.

Distribute the Class Books and show the children where page 8 is. Draw the children’s attention to the coloured frames around the pictures and encourage them to say the colours. Explain to the class that the children in the photos are making things you find in the park out of play-dough or plasticine. Ask questions about what they’re making, for example: What colour is the slide? What colour is the swing? Explain to the children that they are going to listen and say the colour of the picture that is being described. Play the audio (CD Track 10) encouraging the children to listen and say the colour.

Boy:

Girl:

I’m making a swing. Weee, on my swing. (Answer: blue) I’m making a train. Toot toot! On my train. (Answer: green)

• 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?

while the rest of the class answer. Then help the children to find page 6 in the Activity Book, and ask them questions about the picture, for example: Is it day or night? What can you see? Explain to the children that they need to look at the picture and circle the correct numbers. Do an example on the board if necessary. Say: Look at the picture. How many swings? 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.

• Distribute the Class Books. Show the children •

where page 9 is and ask them to identify the items found in a park (slide, train, swing, bike). Ask the children what colour the different objects are. Explain to the children that they need to look and circle the picture that is different. Do an example on the board if need be. For example, draw a slide and two swings on the board. Say: What’s different? Encourage one of the children to come to the front and to circle the slide. Allow time for the children to circle the image that is different in each line. Check answers. Congratulate the children on their good work.

Closing

• Use flashcards to do more odd one out activities.

The children do not have to know or say the words, they just have to identify which one is different. Take, for example, 3 flashcards of things from the park and one flashcard with a colour. The children identify that the colour flashcard is the odd one out.

Extension Tell the children to take out their gommets from the end of the Class Book.

keeping track of our toys and taking care of our possessions. Game: Ask a couple of children to come to the front of the class. Secretly tell them what colour their train is. Encourage the other children to guess the train by asking short questions, for example: On the swing? (no) In the sandpit? (yes) Children who are struggling can say the colour of the train. 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. Circle the sandpit. Colour the sandpit green. A bench. Circle the bench. Colour the bench yellow. A slide. Circle the slide. Colour the slide red.

questions, for example: How are you? Are you happy? Do you like animals? Play The Weather Song (CD Track 08) and talk to the children about the weather that day. Look outside and ask the children about the weather: Is it hot? Cold? Sunny? Rainy? Cloudy? If possible, use picture cues for the weather words to help understanding. Play the song from the unit (CD Track 26) and invite the children to join in and do the actions. Use the Playhouse poster and the unit flashcards to review key vocabulary. Hide a flashcard behind the door on the playhouse poster and encourage the children to knock and ask: What is it? Show them the card and elicit the name of the animal. Put all the animal flashcards face up on your desk, and let the children look at them for a minute. Then pick them up, shuffle them and put them all back down except one. The children have to guess which one is missing. Repeat this game several times as it helps develop the children’s memory and observation skills. Review counting. Encourage the children to count different things in the classroom. Ask the children to close their eyes. Knock on the table three times and ask: How many? (Three.) Repeat with other numbers.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children where page 43 is. Look at the page and ask the children to point to, and name the different animals (giraffe, hippo, snake) Then ask: What colour is the (hippo)? and elicit the answer from the children. Point to the hippo and say: How

many hippos are there? Count aloud with the children. Do the same for the giraffes and the snakes. Then focus their attention on Pandy, Ben and Gina at the bottom of the page. Explain to the children that they need to circle the correct number of animals according to the signs the characters are holding. Do the first one (giraffes) as an example. Say: Look, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 giraffes. Look at Pandy. He’s got a sign with the number 5. Invite the children to circle the 5 giraffes tracing over the dots around the group of 5 giraffes. Help the children to follow the same procedure with the other animals, according to the number Ben and Gina are holding. When the children have counted and circled the correct number of animals, they can then count the number of animals that are left.

Collect the Class Books and distribute the Activity Books and crayons. Show the children where page 23 is, and ask them to name the different safari animals. Then ask them to point to different animals. For example, say: Point to the monkey, point to the hippo... Before doing the task ask the children to read each row. Point in your book and encourage the children to identify the animals. Explain to the children that they have to circle one animal in each row according to your instructions: Row 1. Hippo. Circle the hippo. Row 2. Crocodile. Circle the crocodile. Row 3. Elephant. Circle the elephant. When they have finished, the children can colour and say the name of the animals that are not circled.

Closing

• Collect the Activity Books • Play a chain game: have three children come to the


front of the class. They each hold a safari animal flashcard. Encourage them to play a chain game where they add a new word each time. For example, the first pupil says: I’ve got a giraffe. The second pupil adds: I’ve got a giraffe and a lion. The third: I’ve got a giraffe, a lion and a hippo. These activities help develop children’s memory skills.

Hide a flashcard behind the door on the Playhouse poster and get the children to guess which one it is. Play the Look and guess game with the flashcards from the unit. Show the flashcards and ask the children to identify them. Then put the cards face down on a 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 hippo? A monkey? The children say the word when they recognise the animal. Play the game again with different cards. It is more challenging to put the flashcards upside down.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children

where page 45 is Explain the task in L1 if necessary. Tell the children that they have to draw a safari park. Draw their attention to the thumbnail pictures and ask, for example: Is this a

hippo or a lion? Is this an elephant or a monkey? Allow time for the children to draw their pictures. As they are working, walk around the class asking, for example: What’s your favourite animal? Do you like hippos? What colour is your snake? Use this opportunity to assess their fine motor skills and their listening comprehension. Encourage the children to show their pictures and say for example: Look! My Safari Park! There is a monkey and a hippo.

Extension Do a class survey to see which is the children’s favourite safari park animal. Place the flashcards of the animals used in the unit, spaced out on the floor. Then one by one, ask the children which their favourite animal is, and tell them to go and stand next to the appropriate flashcard. As more children gather, they can form a circle around the flashcard. Once all the children have expressed their preference, count how many are in each group, and record the results on a graph which can then be hung on the wall for everyone to see. Remind the children that this is a survey and not a competition, so there are no winners or losers.

children to identify them. Elicit: Gina, Ben and Pandy. Then encourage the children to identify the buildings on the right-hand column, confirm: police station, hospital, bank. Point to the maze, which leads each character to a different building. First, point to Gina, then the hospital and ask: Where’s Gina going? (To the hospital). Ask the children to draw a line from Gina to the hospital through the maze, with a purple crayon. Then ask the children to follow the paths in the maze, in order to find out where Pandy and Ben are going. Ask them to use different colours for each path. As they are working, walk around the class checking their progress, and helping pupils who are struggling. Encourage them to repeat the name of the characters and where they are going, as they draw their lines through the maze. Congratulate them on doing the task well.

Panda Pointer Keep in mind that children at this age have not yet established the ability to draw lines with ease. Be sure to reward them for their effort. Positive reinforcement is very important. Extension Tell the children that they are going to make some buildings. Divide the class in seven groups, assign a building to each group: police station, hospital, bank, fire station, supermarket, restaurant and bookshop. Put appropriate finger paints in plates and give them to the groups. Hand out the cartons, one for each group. Ask the children to colour the buildings with their fingers.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children

where page 61 is. Look at the page and discuss what the children are planning on doing or what they are ready to do. Explain that each of the characters is missing something in order to do the activity they want to. Show the children that the things they are missing are in the coloured circles. Tell the children they need to match the characters to the things they are missing and then colour their clothing or items they are holding according to the colour of the circle. Do an example with the

children. Match Sue to the green circle with the bike. Invite the children to join Sue to the green circle, by drawing a line with their crayon. Then, point to the circle and ask: What colour is it? (Green). Point to Sue’s t-shirt and say: Colour the T-shirt green, pointing again to the green circle. Then tell the children to do the same with the other characters and circles. Encourage the children to work on their own or in pairs. As they are working, walk around the class assessing fine motor development and concentration. When they have finished check their answers: Pandy’s drum should be red, Ben’s T-shirt should be yellow, Sue’s trousers should be blue.

Extension With more advanced students talk about the things each character needs (drumsticks, trainers, a pool, a bike).

flashcards (CD track 39). Stick the flashcards of spring, summer, autumn and winter around the room. The children point to them when they are named or mime the actions. Place different unit flashcards on the coloured shapes poster using blue tack. Say a word, for example: Leaves. The children shout out the colour where the card is. Repeat with the other words.

Extension If the children are more confident with the language, say, for example: Blue and encourage the children to say the name of the picture on that section of the poster.

Lesson

• Distribute the Class Books and show the children

where page 71 is. Explain to the children (in L1 if need be) that they have to draw a picture of their favourite season. Focus the children’s attention on the pictures in the frame. Point to the sun and say: Look the sun, it’s summer! Repeat for all the drawings, and encourage the children to say the name of the object and the season. Then invite them to draw their favourite season. 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: My favourite season is summer. Collect the Class books and congratulate the children on their good work.

good-bye to the children using Pandy at the end of the lesson.

Extension Make a class seasons poster. Divide the poster into four parts: spring, summer autumn and winter. Hand out the cut outs of scenes with different seasons, and some blue tack and have the children stick their scenes in the appropriate part of the poster. You can prepare cut outs of baby animals, fruit, leaves, flowers…. Help the children to stick these cut outs on the corresponding season.

Warm up

• Play the Hello Song (CD Track 04) and greet the children using Pandy. • Tell the children they are going to hear a story

about Pandy and Ben and the seasons. Before starting, get the children to look at page 72 in their Class Books. Talk to the children about the picture. Ask: Where are Pandy and Ben? (outside, in the garden). Point to the animals and invite the children to identify them. Ask them to count the flowers. Ask: How many blue (pink) flowers? Explain the situation (in L1 if need be). There is a hole in the ground, and Pandy and Ben don’t know who made it. They are thinking about different animals. Invite the children to guess which animal made the hole and to circle their choice. Remind them that this is just a guessing game, and that they can check if they guessed right, once they have heard the story.

Lesson

• Sit the children in a circle and show them the

storycards one by one, as they listen to the story (CD track 42).

Track 42 Speaker: Narrator:

Story 3 - The Four Seasons. Ben and Pandy are in the garden. Pandy: Look Ben! A mouse! Ben: Oh Yes! Look! A mouse! A mouse! Pandy and Ben: Hello mouse! Mouse: Hello!

Narrator: Pandy: Ben: Pandy: Ben:

It’s summer. It’s hot. I’m hot. Me too! Where’s the mouse? Look! The mouse is under the tree.

Narrator: Ben:

It’s summer. It’s hot. It’s hot. I’m thirsty. Mmm…cold water. Here mouse. Have some water. Thanks Pandy! Mmm…cold water!

Pandy: Mouse: Narrator:

It’s autumn. The leaves are falling. Ben: Look! The leaves are falling! Pandy: I like autumn! I like the falling leaves! Mouse: la la la Ben and Pandy: Look! The mouse is cleaning. Narrator: Pandy: Mouse: Ben: Mouse:

It’s autumn. The mouse is collecting food. Look! The mouse is collecting food. I like autumn! I like collecting food. Here you are. Thank you!

Story 1 Narrator: Ben: Pandy: Ben: Narrator: Pandy: Mouse: Ben:

The Four Seasons It’s winter. It’s cold. The mouse is sleeping. It’s cold! Look! The mouse is sleeping. Brrrr… it’s cold. I don’t like winter! Shhhh. It’s spring! The mouse is washing its face. It’s spring! Yippee! Look! The mouse is washing its face. I like spring! Me too!

Narrator:

It’s spring! Pandy, Ben and the mouse are dancing in the garden. Pandy: It’s spring! I like spring! Ben: It’s spring! I like spring! Mouse: It’s spring and I like dancing in the garden!! Ben and Pandy: Me too! Mouse: Happy mouse! Happy mouse! I like spring!

• Once they have finished listening to the story, 100

encourage the children to clap. Ask: Who is Ben and Pandy’s new friend? (the mouse). Show the children storycard number 1 and ask: Where are the friends? (in the garden). Tell the children to find the cat and the ball in the picture. Ask: How many birds are there? What colour are they? Move on to the next storycard and ask: What season is it? (summer) and What’s the weather like? (hot) and get the children to mime feeling hot. Then ask other questions about animals or things in the picture, getting the children to count them or name the colour. Follow the same procedure for all the storycards. Listen to the story again, pausing it so the children can mime the actions regarding the weather and the characters.

Moral and civic education Talk about how the characters behave. Ask: Are they good friends? (Yes). Point for example, to storycard 3 and say: Pandy is a good friend, he is sharing his water with the mouse. Stress the importance of helping friends and sharing things.

Nature Point to the mouse in each storycard and elicit from the children what the animal does in the different seasons. Talk to the children about how animals change their behaviour according to the seasons, then ask them what they do in the different seasons.

Extension Say: Winter! and the children shout out a word connected to this season, for example: Cold, snowman, boots. Do the same for summer, then hand out a sheet of paper to each child, and invite them to draw themselves doing an activity in winter or summer.

Closing

• Collect the Class Books. • Play the Bye Bye Song (CD Track 06) and wave

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 fourTake home pages in Pandy 3:

Take home page 1: Make a mask. (Activity Book pages 37 and 38) This page is to be carried out after Unit 1 and 2 and can be found on pages 37 and 38 of the Activity book. Focus the children attention on the parts of the face which are missing from the masks, they should name and colour them. Then they cut the parts and glue them to complete the face. Stress that the mask on page 37 is a girl, and the one on page 38 is a boy.

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

102

This page is to be carried out after Unit 3 and 4 and can be found on pages 39 and 40 of the Activity Book. Focus the children attention on the two scenes, and elicit the key vocabulary by pointing to the different items in the pictures. Then, explain to the children that they have to cut out the scenes along the dotted lines in order to make a puzzle, and then put them back together paying attention to form the right scene. Tell the children to colour the two scenes before they cut along the dotted lines. Once the children have made the puzzle, they can take it home to play with their family.

Take home page 3: Make a town. (Activity Book pages 41 and 42) This page is to be carried out after Unit 5 and 6 and can be found on pages 41 and 42 of the Activity Book. Focus the children attention on the two scenes, and elicit the key vocabulary by pointing to the different items in the pictures. Then, explain to the children that they have to cut out along the external lines in order to make a ‘box’ which simulates a town or a safari park. Tell the children to colour the two scenes, or the items they like most in each scene. Once the children have made the town and the safari park, they can take it home to play with their family.

Take home page 3: Make an award. (Activity Book pages 43 and 44) This page is to be carried out after Unit 6 and 7 and can be found on pages 43 and 44 of the Activity Book. These are special pages, because they contain awards for the children. Ask them to cut the awards and cut them out. They can wear the awards during a festival or on special occasion, or you can give them to children when they do something special. If they wish, they can give an award like a present to a special friend or relative.


Teaching Tips

Games Introduction Games are particularly important, as children play everywhere. They are an important part of a child’s daily life 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 provide: • Contexts for playing • 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 the opportunity for repetition of language items that are intended to be learned, because it is assumed that engaging in such repetition will lead to the learning of the language. Using games is certainly an effective way of making repetition of language natural and purposeful for young learners.

Games bank Flashcard games These help the children to develop their interpersonal or social skills. The flashcards are colour coded, and can be used to identify, associate and classify words. • Knock, knock! Use the flashcards for Pandy, Ben, Gina and Sue. Show the cards and elicit the characters’ names: Pandy, Ben, Gina and Sue. Hide different cards behind the door of the playhouse. Knock on the table and say: Who’s in the playhouse? Ben? Pandy? Open the door and check. Repeat with the other characters. This game can be used with different lexical sets by changing the question to: What’s in the playhouse? • Coloured shapes poster: Place different (action) flashcards on the coloured shapes poster using blue tack. Say a word, for example: swim. 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 action on the red section of the poster. • The Whispers Race: Place four flashcards on the coloured shapes poster. Ask the children to name the items. Get the children to stand in 3 lines facing the poster (with some space between the first child in each line and the poster). Whisper a word to the last child in each line. Say: 1, 2, 3 - go!. Tell the children to whisper the word down the line. The first person in each line touches the correct card. The child who touches the card then goes to the back of the line. Repeat. After a few rounds, change the cards. Make sure each line of children has a different word to whisper down the line. • Odd one out: Use the flashcards to play the odd one out game. The children do not necessarily have to know or say the words, they just have to identify which one is different. Take, for example, 3 flashcards of things from the park and one food flashcard. The children identify that the food flashcard is the odd one out. • 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. • Guess! Play the following game with the unit flashcards (eg. lion, monkey, 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: hippo? Elephant? 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. • Guess my dinner! Secretly put the following flashcards in a paper bag: fish, salad, ice-cream and water. Show the bag to the children and say: I’ve got my dinner in this bag. Invite the children to guess what you’ve got. Encourage them to name the items of food. When they guess, take out the flashcards and stick them on the board. Confirm at the end: I’ve got fish, salad, ice-cream and water for dinner. Yummy! Repeat the procedure with different flashcards. Ask the children to choose their dinner. • Pass the flashcard: Use the flashcards from the unit to play a game of Pass the card to practise vocabulary.

Get the children to sit in a circle. Hold up a flashcard and say, for example: Look! A snake! Pass the flashcard to a child beside you and encourage the child to say: Look! A snake. The child then passes the card to the next child who then repeats the sentence. Continue the same procedure until all of the children have had a turn. Repeat with other animal cards or with other groups of words from other units. The same procedure can be repeated, but instead of saying: Look! A (snake) the children say: I’ve got (a snake). Pass the flashcards (version 2): 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 (chicken). 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. 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 hippo? A giraffe?. The children say the word when they recognise the animal. Repeat with different cards. (It is more challenging to put the flashcard upside down.) Where am I? Show four flashcards of the buildings featured in Unit 6 and say the words. Then shuffle the cards and choose one without showing it to the children. Ask them to guess where you are. Encourage the children to ask: Are you in the (restaurant)? Say: Yes or No. The game continues until the children guess right. Repeat this a few times. When the children are familiar with the game, swap roles and ask various children to shuffle the cards and choose a building. The rest of the class has to guess where he or she is. Are you outside the bank? Call a child to the front of the class and give him or her a building flashcard (hospital) without letting the other children see. Ask: Are you outside the (Bank)? The child says: No. Encourage the children in the class to ask until they guess right. 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 lion? Green or blue? (the children say the colour of the shape the lion 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. Favourite (food): Stick the (food) flashcards around the classroom. Explain to the children in L1 that they have to say their favourite (food), stand up and touch the corresponding (food) on the wall. Tell the children to stay near the (food) until the end of the game so they can see who likes the same thing. Form a circle: The children sit in a circle. Place for example, the animal flashcards 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 a crocodile. The children in the group of four form a circle around the flashcard depicting the crocodile. Continue until all the children have taken part in the game.16 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 (sandpit). The rest of the class repeats the word aloud.

TPR games These are used to stimulate 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. This game can be varied by getting the children to use 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. Say a colour!: Hand out some balloons to various children, elicit their colour each time. Elicit: Red, pink, purple. Repeat, and invite the children to repeat after you. Then play a TPR game using these balloons. Say a colour, and ask the child who has that colour balloon, to throw it to another child, then that child says the colour and throws it to another child. Repeat the procedure till you catch the balloon. Then do the same with the rest of the balloons. Pandy Says Game: Review classroom instructions through a game. Tell the children that you are going to give them instructions. They should only follow the instructions if you say Pandy says first. For example give the following orders: Pandy says stand up! (the children stand up). Pandy says sit down! (the children sit down). Clap your hands! (the children do not clap). Give instructions very slowly at first, and little by little add more speed. This game can be varied by extending the vocabulary to the new actions learned (brush hair) (swim)

where the children mime the appropriate action only if you say: Pandy says… Touch colours!: Play a game using colours. Say: Touch red! The children have to touch something red without moving from their seats. Do the same with the rest of the colours, include white and black too. What’s he/she doing? Call a pair of children to the front of the class and whisper an action to them. The children mime the action and the other children in the class try to guess what it is, for example clean teeth. Then invite different pairs to act out more actions. ‘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 many times. Use page 23 of the Pupil’s book to play hide and seek with the characters. Pandy counts and the children can hide the character stickers in the rooms of the house. Clapping game: Revise the numbers 1 to 10. First count your fingers with the children, then play the clapping game. Say for example: Three, and the children have to clap three times. Do the same with other numbers. Alternatively clap once, twice or three times and the children have to say how many times you clapped. Traffic lights: Draw traffic lights on the board, or bring a set. 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 each child’s head and encourage the rest of the class to say boy or girl. Repeat with different groups of children. 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 (bookshop). Repeat this with the other buildings very slowly at first, then more quickly to make the activity like a game. It’s raining! Take out cut outs of raindrops and snowflakes. Ask the children to stand in a circle. Ask them to go round in a circle while you drop some raindrops on their heads. Say: It’s raining. Encourage them to say: It’s raining, as the raindrops are falling. After, the children will have a lot of fun picking the drops up. Then do the same with 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?

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

• • •

Circle time: Play the Circle Time Song (CD Track 07) and sit the children in a circle. Place the coloured shapes poster on the floor in the centre. Ask the children to say the different colours on the poster, use the different flashcards for this level. Find red, yellow, blue and green coloured objects in the set of flashcards for this level. Place the cards face up on the floor. Encourage the children to take turns choosing and placing the cards on one colour. Children have to name the item depicted on the flashcard and the colour of the poster. 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. Look and find: Sit the children in a circle. Show plastic safari animals one by one, and ask the children to identify them. Put the toy animals in the centre of the circle. Call on different children to bring you the animals. Say, for example: Roberto, give me the (lion) please! Repeat with the other children. Where is the animal? The children sit in a circle. Put the building and animal flashcards in the centre: police station, hospital, bank, fire station, supermarket, restaurant and bookshop; monkey, lion, giraffe, hippo, elephant, snake, crocodile. Ask various children to follow your instructions, for example: (Juan) Give me the bank and the monkey, please! When the child does the action say: Thank you! Then show the cards and say: Look, the monkey is outside the bank. Repeat and encourage the children to join in. Do the same with the rest of the flashcards.

Actions game! Show the children the action flashcards and say for example: wash your hands! brush your hair! Clean your teeth! Encourage the children to copy the actions. Explain to them that you are going to say one of the actions and that you want them to mime it. Tell the children to stand in a circle at the front/back of the classroom 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! In order to practise the colours, use different coloured objects and ask for example: (Rosa) Give me the purple ball, please! Count and give: The 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 practise 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 (version 2): Play with the food and building flashcards. Ask the children to sit in a circle. Show the building flashcards one by one and elicit their names. 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 pizza. Then ask everybody to close their eyes and the child who’s got the pizza hides it under one of the buildings. Then ask: Is the pizza in the bookshop? Elicit Yes or No. Ask till the children guess where the pizza 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 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 (chocolate) and tell the children to form a circle around the flashcard for chocolate on the floor. They say: I like (chocolate) 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.

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.

Where is my train?: Play this game with page 10 Pupil’s Book. Ask a couple of children to come to the front of the class. Secretly tell them what colour their train is. Encourage the other children to guess which train, by asking short questions, for example: On the swing? (no) In the sandpit? (yes) Children who are struggling can say the colour of the train. Children at a higher level can try to ask full questions. 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 items. Smell and say! Take a banana, an apple, a pear and an orange, or pieces of each fruit, ask various 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. Memory game: Play the memory game with the town vocabulary. Explain the game to the children. Say the name of a shop or building, then invite one of the children to repeat it and add another. Say: Bookshop! And the child says: Bookshop, fire station! Continue with the other children until all the places have been mentioned. This can be repeated with food items, toys... Yes or No game. Use the illustrations of the unit. Say sentences about the pictures, for example: Gina’s riding a bike. Then say: one – two – three and encourage the children to say Yes or No according to the picture. 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) lion. Show them the flashcard to confirm their answer. Repeat this procedure asking different children to imitate animal sounds. Another option: Divide the class into different groups. Show a flashcard to one group and encourage the children from that group to make the correct noise. The rest of the class has to guess which animal it is. As an alternative, the children can mime how the animal moves. 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 another 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 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. 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 like 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. 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.

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, 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.
