The designed activities included in the lesson plan.

The strengths
The activities in the lesson plan are simple and more fun because we are focused on the learning disabilities students. Im also used colourful pictures because to attract students attention. As we know the kids very attracted to the bright colours. The strengths and weakness for each activity are stated as below: 1. This first chapter starts with some lower intermediate classroom activities that can help the teacher and the students to get to know one-another, in an easy and relaxed atmosphere. a. Watch the picture of 1Malaysia Traditional costumes. The pictures are about clothes, food, and religion place. Below are the examples of the pictures that Im used. MALAYSIA TRADITIONAL COSTUMES

b. This lesson is focused to disable students which having dyslexia and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. So, teacher have to use word cards because it able to help students to recognize the spelling and pronoun correctly. c. Besides, this activity required teacher and pupils made simple conversation. d. Have fun. Communicative activities are designed to be lively, interactive, and fun. When people are comfortable they are likely to learn more. An active, cooperative class is a class where a great deal of learning social, cultural, and linguistic. 2. The second activity is pupils watching the video about festival celebrations in Malaysia. Then, they were sitting in circle to play game Who Am I? This game required pupil to speak in simple sentence like Am I am Malay? and also said Yes or No as the answer. Through imitating, interacting and internalizing the process is later on understood explicitly on a higher level, by practising social phrases in everyday situations the learners are building a basis on top of which new information is to be added from lesson to lesson.

The examples of the word cards that pupils need to read loudly.

AM I AM MALAY BOY?

AM I AM CHINESE BOY?

AM I AM INDIAN BOY?

AM I AM MALAY GIRL?

AM I AM CHINESE GIRL?

AM I AM INDIAN GIRL?

3. The activity in development stage is whispering game. This activity required pupils to pass the massage silently from one person to another. The pupils able to enhance their language skills. The sentences used are simple based on the pupils ability. Many language learners regard speaking ability as the measure of knowing a language. These learners define fluency as the ability to converse with others, much more than the ability to read, write, or comprehend oral language. They regard speaking as the most important skill they can acquire, and they assess their progress in terms of their accomplishments in spoken communication.

MY NAME IS AHMAD. I AM MALAY BOY. I LIKE TO EAT NASI LEMAK

MY NAME IS AH MENG. I AM CHINESE BOY. I LIKE TO EAT DIM SUM.

MY NAME IS MUTHU. I AM INDIAN BOY. I LIKE TO CHAPATTI

4. In production stage, teacher provides some worksheet to evaluate students understanding while practise reading the words. Then, teacher gives some pictures for pupils to colour it. We recognize objects more quickly when their colours reflect what we see in the physical world. Upon seeing an object that is colour differently, like a pink banana, it can cause cognitive dissonance that the viewer must resolve. Of course, you may intentionally use unusual colours as a creative, playful or dissonant approach. But if youre aiming for speedy recognition, as in this cover for a childrens book, use colours that are normally associated with an object or scene. The example of colouring picture.

5. The last activity is singing a song. Using songs, poems, rhymes and chants is a wonderful way of making students sing/talk and at the same time (unconsciously) work at their grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation.

Conclusion Communicative output activities allow students to practice using all of the language they know in situations that resemble real settings. In these activities, students must work together to develop a plan, resolve a problem, or complete a task. The most common types of communicative output activity are role plays and discussions. In role plays, students are assigned roles and put into situations that they may eventually encounter outside the classroom. Because role plays imitate life, the range of language functions that may be used expands considerably. Also, the role relationships among the students as they play their parts call for them to practice and develop their sociolinguistic competence. They have to use language that is appropriate to the situation and to the characters.

The weaknesses

The weaknesses that I found are those activities only suitable for learners who have difficulty following through on instructions from others, difficulty completing assignments, difficulty with any task that requires memory, difficulty sustaining attention to tasks or other activities and Frequent excessive talking. The other disabilities like hard of hearing and visual disorder may use another strategy to learn speaking skills. This lesson designed activities that need pupils to speak more with correct pronunciation and grammatical. If the pupils are passive, the process of teaching and learning will became numb or unhappy. I should also apply the latest device like below:

Helpful Tools These tools are useful for both educators and students with reading disabilities alike, aiding in everything from looking up a correct spelling to reading text out loud. 1.
