Explanation regarding to the implementation of the plan
First, the teacher gives a brief explanation about the content of the lesson to let the students know what they
will learn. Then, teacher does a warm-up activity by asking simple questions to the students like ‘Do you have
any pets in your home?’. After a few responds, through using presentation, students are instructed about pets.
They will learn both how to write their names and pronounce them. At this point, students can ask the
complicated pronunciations. To make the course funnier after this presentation, students watch cartoon and
they will consolidate what they’ve learned. In acting-out activity, the students will gain self-confidence and
learn how to act out together with their group members. They will keep enjoying and learning. After a little
rest, the students will personally be asked to try to guess the equivalents of pets’ pictures in flashcard activity.
The students will be asked to do a fill-in-the blank activity which will evaluate what they learn. For back-up
plan, if something unexpected happens, the teacher does activities ranging from songs, riddles to games.
