CLIL
This CLIL lesson explores a curriculum
area related to the theme of the unit,
for example the ability to use numbers,
perform basic operations, understand
symbols and solve problems in order to
interpret the physical Word.

CLIL: Students develop competence in autonomy, personal initiative and arts by drawing and
describing their favourite toy. Afterwards, students can describe it to the class by reading their
sentences and showing the picture. Giving a short mini-presentation of this kind helps students
to gain confidence.

Unit 1 flashcard
Children develop Linguistic competence by listening to a recorded story
that revises vocabulary and grammar structures from previous lessons.
Comprehension is checked by crossing out the incorrect pictures; afterwards
a guided role play is done by children for speaking consolidation.

Getting started
Tell the children to look at the story and ask them to identify the
characters. Then ask them to look at the little pictures at the top of
page 16. Point to the picture of the sharpener and ask: Can you find this
in the story? The children look in the story and see if they can find the
sharpener. Tell them to circle the picture of the sharpener, because it
appears in the story. They then look through the story and find which
of the remaining pictures appear and circle them. Ask the children to
check their answers with a partner. Finally, ask the children to cross out
all the pictures that do not appear in the story.

5 Listen to the story. 12


Play the story once. Play the story again and ask the children to follow the
story in their books. Pause the recording at various points. Ask volunteers
to point to the relevant scene in their books. Divide the class into five
groups and assign parts to each group: Charlie, Lee, Monica, Ruby and the
magpie. Play the recording again and pause the recording after each scene
and tell each group to repeat their character’s lines.

Stop and think!


Read each statement out loud and explain them to the children. Point
to the circles and tell them to choose only one statement and to
colour the circle next to the one they chose. Finally, ask the children
which statement they coloured to assess comprehension of the story.

Finishing off F
Show the unit’s flashcard to the children again. First, ask them to tell
you which objects appeared in the story. Then ask them to tell you the
colours or names of the objects; T: What colour is the (ruler)? SS: It’s (red).
T: What’s this? SS: It’s a (crayon). Ask for volunteers to ask the questions.
Repeat until everyone has had the chance to ask or answer a question.

Children develop Linguistic competence by listening to a recorded story,


The Surprise Party!, that revises vocabulary and grammar structures
from previous lessons. Afterwards a guided role play is done by
children for speaking consolidation.

Getting started
Tell the children to look at the story and ask them to identify the
characters. Then ask them to look at the little pictures at the top of
page 26. Point to the picture of the balloons and ask: Can you find these
in the story? The children look in the story and see if they can find the
balloons. Tell them to circle the picture of the balloons, because they
appear in the story. They then look through the story and find which of
the remaining pictures appear and circle them. Ask them to check their
answers with a partner. Finally, they have to cross out all the pictures
that do not appear in the story.

Teacher’s Methodological Manual 65


5 Listen to the story. 22
Play the story once. Play the story again and ask the children to follow the
story in their books. Pause the recording at various points. Ask volunteers
to point to the relevant scene in their books. Divide the class into five
groups and assign parts to each group: Ruby, neighbour, Granny, Dad,
Mum. Play the recording again and pause the recording after each scene
and tell each group to repeat their character’s lines.

Stop and think!


Read each statement out loud and explain them to the children. Point
to the circles and tell them to choose only one statement and to
colour the circle next to the one they chose. Finally, ask the children
which statement they coloured to assess comprehension of the story.

FinishingFoff
Ask the children their age. T: (Natalia), how old are you? SS: I’m (six).
Then, ask a volunteer to come to the front and ask someone their age.
Continue until all the children have asked or answered the question.

from previous lessons to build knowledge. Children develop fluency by
participating in a guided role play.

Getting started
Ask the children to look at the Student Books at page 66. Ask them to
look at the story and to identify characters they know. Then ask them
to look at the little pictures at the top of page 66. Point to the picture
of the ball and ask: Can you find this in the story? Tell them to look in the
story and see if they can find the ball. Tell them to circle the picture of
the ball, because it appears in the story. Tell them to look through the
story and find which of the remaining pictures appear and to circle
them. Ask them to check their answers with a partner. Finally, ask the
children to cross out all the pictures that do not appear in the story.

story in their books. Pause the recording at various points. Ask volunteers
to point to the relevant scene in their books. Divide the class into six
groups and assign parts to each group: Charlie, Ruby, Monica, Ruby’s mum,
Clown 1 and Clown 2. Play the recording again and pause the recording
after each scene and tell each group to repeat their character’s lines.

Stop and think!


Read each statement out loud and explain them to the children. Point
to the circles and tell them to choose only one statement and to
colour the circle next to the one they chose. Finally, ask the children
which statement they coloured to assess comprehension of the story.

Write numbers from 1-8 on the board to identify the different story
cards. Divide the class into two teams. Tell the children you are going
to play a game. Choose a member from each team and read out one of
the character’s lines from the story. The first player to raise its hand and
correctly guesses the story card wins a point for his or her team. Repeat
this until everyone has had a turn.

integrates vocabulary from previous lessons to build knowledge.
Children develop listening fluency by participating in a Story card race.

Getting started
Tell the children to look at the story and ask them to identify the
characters. Then ask them to look at the little pictures at the top of
page 76. Point to the picture of the chocolate cake and ask: Can you find
this in the story? Tell them to look in the story and see if they can find
the chocolate cake. Tell them to circle the picture of the chocolate cake,
because it appears in the story. Tell them to look through the story and
find which of the remaining pictures appear and to circle them. Ask
them to check their answers with a partner. Finally, ask the children to
cross out all the pictures that do not appear in the story.

Play the story once. Play the story again and ask the children to follow the
story in their books. Pause the recording at various points. Ask volunteers
to point to the relevant scene in their books. Divide the class into seven
groups and assign parts to each group: Charlie, Anne Marie, Ruby, Lee,
Monica, mum and dad. Play the recording again and pause the recording
after each scene and tell each group to repeat their character’s lines.

Stop and think!


Read each statement out loud and explain them to the children. Point
to the circles and tell them to choose only one statement and to colour
the circle next to the one they chose. Finally, ask the children which
statement they coloured to assess comprehension of the story.

Write numbers from 1-8 on the board to identify the different story
cards. Divide the class into two teams. Tell the children you are going
to play a game. Choose a member from each team and read out one of
the character’s lines from the story. The first player to raise its hand and
correctly guesses the story card wins a point for his or her team. Repeat
this until everyone has had a turn.
