Answers for exercise page 11 - “Match” - Photocopiable Material

MATCH ( photocopiable material ) The activity in this worksheet is meant as a listening exercise, and was originally thought for pre-schoolers. However, you can also use it with older kids also as a listening and writing activity. You can use it to practise a number of different vocabulary items : colours, members of the family, parts of the house, clothes, furniture, physical description, etc. And also some grammar: there is, are / have, has got / is wearing / prepositions of place. Depending on the level of the students in your group, think of sentences that will include the grammar and vocabulary you want to revise. The idea is to read the sentences aloud so that your pupils perform any of the following: Matching Circling Colouring Drawing Matching You pupils are supposed to match each member of the family with the correct part of the house. Read sentences such as: Grannie is in the kitchen / The brother is in the bedroom / The sister is in the living-room / Dad is in the dining room / Mum is in the bathroom Circling In this case your pupils are supposed to circle the character or part of the house you describe. For example, for family members you can give a name to each of them and tell the class that they have to guess who is who from the descriptions they will hear; they should circle the member of the family and write his/her name next to it: Lilly is has got blonde hair. She’s got two plaits. She’s very young. She’s wearing a dress. ( the sister ) Myriam has got long and black hair with a fringe. She’s wearing trousers and a shirt. ( the mum ) Lucas has got short and black hair. He is wearing trousers and a T-shirt. He is standing. I f you decide to revise the parts of the house, you can choose to describe each room: There is a table and four chairs. There is a picture on the wall, and a glass on the table. Or you can use actions that are performed in each of the rooms: In this room, you can read. You can also watch television. ( living-room ) In this room, you can have tea and do your homework. ( dining-room ) In any of the two cases, your pupils should circle the part of the house you have described and write the name of the room next to it. Colouring In this case you will have to think of sentences such as: The sister is wearing a pink and red dress, and black shoes. For the members of the family; OR There is a brown armchair in the living-room. For the parts of the house.

Drawing In this case, you can practice the prepositions of place with sentences such as: Draw a brown dog in the bedroom next to toy box. Draw a vase with red florwers on the living-room table. Draw a boy in the bathtub. Draw a man in front of the refrigerator.

Sweet Sixteen - Lyrics—Song Page 15

Sweet Sixteen by Ringo Starr You come on like a dream, peaches and cream, lips like strawberry wine. You're sixteen, you're beautiful and you're mine. (mine, all mine) You're all ribbons and curls, ooh, what a girl, eyes that sparkle and shine. You're sixteen, you're beautiful and you're mine. (mine, all mine, mine, mine) You're my baby, you're my pet, we fell in love on the night we met. you touched my hand, my heart went pop, ooh, when we kissed, I could not stop. You walked out of my dreams, into my arms, now you're my angel divine. you're sixteen, you're beautiful, and you're mine. You're my baby, you're my pet, we fell in love on the night we met. You touched my hand, my heart went pop, ooh, when we kissed, I could not stop. You walked out of my dreams, into my car, now you're my angel divine. you're sixteen, you're beautiful, and you're mine. you're sixteen, you're beautiful, and you're mine. you're sixteen, you're beautiful, and you're mine. all mine, all mine, all mine. all mine, all mine, all mine. all mine, all mine, all mine, all mine, but i do. you are mine!


The Reason - Lyrics—Song Page 16

THE REASON by Hoobastank I'm not a perfect person. There's many things I wish I didn't do. But I continue learning. I never meant to do those things to you. And so I have to say before I go That I just want you to know. I've found a reason for me To change who I used to be, A reason to start over new, And the reason is you. I'm sorry that I hurt you. It's something I must live with everyday. And all the pain I put you through, I wish that I could take it all away, And be the one who catches all your tears. That's why I need you to hear. I've found a reason for me To change who I used to be, A reason to start over new, And the reason is you, And the reason is you, And the reason is you, And the reason is you. I'm not a perfect person. I never meant to do those things to you. And so I have to say before I go That I just want you to know. I've found a reason for me To change who I used to be, A reason to start over new, And the reason is you. I've found a reason to show A side of me you didn't know, A reason for all that I do, And the reason is you.
