LESSON PLAN:THE THREE LITTLE PIGSREVOLTING RHYMES BY ROALD DAHL
INTRODUCTION: We have chosen the Three Little Pig´s adapted tale by Roald Dahl in order to teach the different materials that the things are made of. We focused on the English Language, concretly on the structure TO BE + MADE + OF. We´ve used this tale because it´s enjoyable and very funny and it has a surprising ending, so we have found it very attractive to our pupils. We are in contact with the music teacher, with the new science teacher and also with the technology teacher to prepare a whole project where all the lesson plans are taught round the same themes.

PRE-READING: 1. INTRODUCTION:The commercial centre is a place where you can buy everything, during this lesson, you´re going to learn how to buy clothes and pieces of jewelry using new vocabulary, new structures with the verb to be, the past participle of the verb to make, the preposition of.
PRE-READING: Passive voice: Use of Passive Passive voice is used when the focus is on the action. It is not important or not known, however, who or what is performing the action. Example: My bike was stolen. In the example above, the focus is on the fact that my bike was stolen. I do not know, however, who did it. Sometimes a statement in passive is more polite than active voice, as the following example shows: Example: A mistake was made. In this case, I focus on the fact that a mistake was made, but I do not blame anyone (e.g. You have made a mistake.).
PRE-READING: Form of Passive Subject + finite form of to be + Past Participle (3rd column of irregular verbs) Example: A letter was written. When rewriting active sentences in passive voice, note the following:1. the object of the active sentence becomes the subject of the passive sentence.2. The finite form of the verb is changed (to be + past participle)3. the subject of the active sentence becomes the object of the passive sentence (or is dropped)http://www.ego4u.com/en/cram-up/grammar/passive/exercises
