Play with the whole class and/or children play in pairs. Pupil A holds up a book with one of the picture cards behind it. Pupil A says ‘Lookl’ and gradually moves the card up. As soon as Pupil В recognizes the picture, they say e. g. ‘I can see the… bag!’ After three turns, the children change roles.

If it is necessary, translate them into the native language.

Optional activities

Game “Jump”

Ask children to stand at their desks.

Hold up a flashcard from the vocabulary set and say a word.

If the word is the same as the flashcard, they jump. If it isn’t, they keep still.

Pre-reading: Teach the new phrase “So what?” Check that pupils understand the meaning of it.

Monitor the activity, checking up correct pronunciation.

Ask a couple of pairs to come to the board to act out the dialogues.

Praise their efforts, “Good! Well done!”

Optional activity

Game “Musical cards”

Play with the whole class. Children stand or sit in a circle. Give out the picture cards from one set to different children in the circle. Play any music and children pass the cards clockwise round the circle. Pause the music. Children with the picture cards hold them up and name what’s on their card in turn.

Everyone claps and says e. g. “Fantastic!”

6. Listen and say the rhyme (p. 14, ex. 5).

Tell pupils to look at the picture on p. 14, ex. 5. Ask what they see.

Read the rhyme chorally.

Monitor the activity and help where necessary. Use board sketches, miming and gestures to make sure the pupils understand the meaning of the colours.

Optional activity

Game “Can I have… ?”

Pupils play in pairs. They each choose three cards from a set of picture cards and hold them in a way so their partner can’t see the pictures. Pupil A asks e. g. “Can I have the red crayon, please?” If PupilВ doesn’t have the card of the crayon, they say “No, sorry”. If they do have the card of the crayon, they say “Here you are!” and give it to Pupil A, who says “Thank you”. Pupil В then has the next turn asking a question. The game ends when the pupils have discovered all each other’s cards.
