  1. 1. Taller de Práctica Docente 2015 Tutora: Prof. Cecilia A. Zemborain Co – tutoras: Prof. Eugenia Carrión Cantón – Prof. Graciela Inés Manzur Lesson Plans – Practicum – First Period - Kindergarten I.F.D.C. Lenguas Vivas Taller de Práctica Docente ALUMNA PRACTICANTE: Paula Schulze Students consulted for Peer Correction: Myriam Beatriz Tielve Período de Practica: Primero – Nivel Inicial Institución Educativa: Colegio Bilingüe Neuquén Dirección: Los Álamos 700 – Neuquén Capital Sala/ Grado/ Año – Sección: Sala de 5 – Turno Mañana Cantidad de alumnos: 30 Nivel Lingüístico del curso: Principiantes Tipo de Planificación: Clase Unidad Temática: Mi jardín de Infantes Clase N°: 1 Fecha: 13/05/2015 Hora: 8:50 – 9:30 Duración de la clase: 40´ Fecha de la primera entrega: 08/05/2015  Teaching Points: School Objects  Aims: During this lesson, learners will be able to…
  2. 2.  Identify and name some school objects.  Identify and follow simple commands while they get organized to work.  Participate actively in speaking interactions.  Develop their listening skills by listening to commands and songs.  Language focus: LEXIS FUNCTION STRUCTURE PRONUNCIATION REVISION Greetings Hello! Goodbye! The weather sunny, cloudy, rainy, windy, snowy hot and cold The imperative Sit down! Stand up! Look! Listen! Repeat! Colours Green, white, blue, black, pink, red. Adjectives: Big small -Greeting other people. -Recognizing and describing different weather conditions. -Giving and following commands and /or instructions. -Wh questions in the simple present How are you today? -What´s the weather like today?

  3. 3. - Polite Requests Let´s relax/colour the…. Can you give me another object Cookie? Glue /ɡluː/  Teaching approach: Natural approach, being learners exposedto the target language without expecting them to talk until they are ready, and Total Physical Response method  Integrating skills: Listening and Speaking skills will be integrated in a natural way as the students listen to the teacher´s questions and they provide answers  Materials and resources: weather flashcards, Cookie the puppet, classroom elements (crayon, glue pencil, eraser), school bag, worksheet.  Pedagogical use of ICT in class: for this very first class, no audio sources will be used since the students already know the hello and goodbye songs and they always sing them without a CD player.  Seating arrangement: Students will sit in a semicircle on the carpet to facilitate eye contact and interaction with the teacher and peers. At this age students still need movement therefore then later on they will be invited to stand up to play a game. They will also perform some movements while singing a song.  Cooperative work: As learners at this age are in a social play stage, they will work as a class and /or individually during this first lesson.  Possible problems / difficulties and their solutions during the class: In case the learners get bored or misbehave, as it may be expected because of their short time span, the following planned activity will be introduced, seating arrangement will be changed or even a chant “Mr Silence” to keep in silence will be used.
  4. 4.  Potential problems students may have with the language: Students are not very used to be given instructions neither use the target language during the whole lesson so probably gestures, repetition and modeling to help their understanding will be applied. At the time a student says a word in his/her mother tongue the sandwich technique will also be used.  Assessment: what will be assessed and how: Students´ comprehension will be assessed while performing the activities and consequently cheering and positive feedbacks will be given. Students will be encouraged to repeat and produce chunks instead of isolated words. Nevertheless, it will be considered correct if they just follow the instructions with gestures or movements as may be expected at this stage. Interlanguage will be welcomed. Routine: 5´ Purpose : to greet students and get them on focus to start the lesson. I will greet students: “Hello kids! Sts: “Hello!” Hello Miss Paula (as they have already met me). Then I will encourage students (sts) to sing the “Hello to Everyone Song”, which is the same they are used to sing with their teacher at the beginning of each lesson. For this routine the teacher gets the students to stand in a circle near the blackboard and while they sing they perform the actions mentioned in the song. At this stage I will mime the gestures while singing the song with them. Hello To Everyone Hello to everyone, and how are you today? We come to our circle time to laugh and sing and play, and when you're up, you're up, and when you're down, you're down, and when you're only half way up, you're neither up nor down, Now roll your hands so slowly, and roll them all so fast Give our hands a clap, clap, clap, and fold them in your lap tap, tap. http://preschoolcircletime.weebly.com/
  5. 5. Transition: Excellent kids! Sit down, please. The sts will sit in a semi circle, looking at the teacher and she will sit on those little chairs for kinder to have visual contact with all the kids. Warm-up: 10´ Purpose : to activate previous knowledge of the weather. The teacher suggested this topic of the weather conditions for the warm up as it was taught last year and has been used in some classes of this current year but not on regular bases. I will include this topic in my following plans as well, as part of the daily routines. I will introduce the topic with “the help” of the class´s pet, the puppet Cookie which is a cat. (The one the sts have is a bit over-used but they love him!) Before starting the class I will put the puppet in a bag so as to create suspense before using it. The sts will sit in a semi-circle on the carpet as they usually do, I will wait until they are all sat and I will place myself in front of them to have eye-contact with all the sts. Teacher (T): Look. Mmmm Listen! (I will point at my ear. Then I will take sth from the bag that is apparently moving). I will do this slowly to catch the sts´s attention. T: Oh Cookie, hello! Children say hello to Cookie! Sts: Hello Cookie. How are you today? I´ll move the puppet in an affirmative way to mean he is ok.
  6. 6. Now I will stand up for the sts to pay more attention to what is going on with the puppet. T: Oh. He is OK. Look Cookie! (I will use the puppet and move it to look at the window which is not far from where the kids are sat). What´s the weather like today Cookie? Is it cloudy or sunny? I will take the puppet next to my ear as if waiting for the answer. I will repeat the question. I will show a disappointing face as he does not answer the question. T: ok kids. Let´s see. What´s the weather like today, children? Is it cloudy or sunny? Sts: Sunny! T: Excellent. It is sunny. It is sunny. (And now with my hand in the puppet I will do as if it is taking sth from my bag. I would have included the flashcards on the weather conditions sts have already studied in it) Oh Look, one weather flashcard! Thank you Cookie! I will show it to the kids. What´s the weather like? Is it snowy or windy? Sts: snowy! T: yes. It is snowy! Repeat: It is snowy. Great! Is it cold or hot? Sts: Cold. T: yes! It is cold. It is snowy and cold. I will give them positive feedback: “Well done, kids!” I will stick each picture on the board and I will continue until the 5 weather conditions have been mentioned, I will encourage chorus repetition but in case I see some sts are a bit lost or misbehaving I´ll ask them for individual repetition in order to call their attention back again. Another possibility is to use the chant sts sing: Mr Silence shut your mouth Coming Mr Silence shut your mouth FLASHCARDS http://www.eslprintables.com/vocabulary_worksheets/the_weather_/weather_flashc ards/Weather_Flashcards_512083/ I will stick the flashcards on the blackboard and leave them there for the sts to have daily visual contact with them. Transition: excellent work children and Cookie! Presentation : 10´ Purpose : to set the context and expose the students to the new lexis and structures. T: Ok let´s relax! I will perform the action for them to mime. Relax children! Relax Cookie! I’m still going to have Cookie in my hand but I will do as if he wants to move. T: Oh! Look! He is happy, he wants to move. At this point I´ll bring nearer a little school bag with some school objects in it.
  7. 7. T: Look, this is Cookie´s school bag. It is a school bag. And Cookie will take a crayon. I will do this slowly and make surprise noises so as to have the sts´s attention. T: oh! It´s a school object. It ´s a crayon! It´s a crayon, what is this kids? Sts: It´s a crayon. . (I will repeat the sentence and ask for chorus repetition.) When introducing the word crayon I´ll make special emphasis on individual repetition to focus on the triphthong and when glue is presented on the length of the vowel. T: great! What colour is the crayon? Is it blue or white? Sts: blue! T: Yes, it is a blue crayon T: Now, Let´s see Cookie can you give me another school object? I will take something else. Oh it is a pencil. It´s a pencil What´s this kids? Sts: it´s a pencil T: what colour is the pencil? Sts: green!! T: It is a green pencil. So we have a .... (I will point at the blue crayon and the sts complete the sentence) and a .... ( I will points at the green pencil). If sts do not say the words, I’ll encourage them to repeat after me. Source: Google images The other elements will be introduced in the same way. After each object has been taken from the bag I will place them on a table. Transition: Perfect! Let´s play a game! I will do the gesture to make them stand up. - Development ( 10´ ) Activity 1 Purpose: to foster listening comprehension while performing an action I will ask the sts to sit at their tables, they already have assigned places. On each table I´m going to place 1 blue crayon, 1 green pencil, 1 big glue and 1 white eraser. I will mime the activity first as follows: T: when Miss Paula says: Blue crayon, you touch the blue crayon. So, for example, I will call out blue crayon and they will have to touch it. At first I will say correctly but
  8. 8. then I will say blue pencil or just eraser and so they don´t have to touch anything. I will monitor that all the kids play but checking they behave properly and nobody gets hurt. Probably at some time they will stand up to have a better view of the objects and the T will allow this as at this stage they are very full of energy. T: very good children! Transition: now, let´s colour some school objects Activity 2: Purpose: to follow instructions and recognize learned objects Sts will be delivered a copy in which they only have to colour the school objects we have seen. They will not have to colour the objects in the colours we have mentioned, in this case they will be free to choose the colour they want because they already know more colours. So while I walk around and monitor their paintings I will ask for example: What colour is the glue, Lautaro? I´ll take a worksheet and hold it up for everybody to see. I´ll give the instructions and demonstrate with a colour if necessary. I´ll do the first number with the whole class, if necessary. SCHOOL OBJECTS Source: adapted from Google Images
  9. 9. Once the activity has been finished, they will be collected to be included in each student´s folder. Closure : 5´ Transition: “Excellent lesson, kids! You´ve worked hard!” (pointing to the clock on the wall) “It´s time to say goodbye!” Sts will sing the goodbye song they usually sing with the teacher. This time, I will encourage students to sing the goodbye song with me: Now, it´s time to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, goodbye everyone. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, goodbye everyone.

Homework: The students do not have a booklet yet so they don´t take any homework home. But for the following classes I have been told that if I want to include some there won’t be any objection to it. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Taller de Práctica Docente 2015 Tutora: Prof. Cecilia A.

Can you give me another object Cookie? Recognition and use of the sounds and diphthongs in: Square /skweə(r)/ Heart /hɑː(r)t/  Teaching approach: Natural approach and Total Physical Response method.
  12. 12.  Integrating skills: Listening and Speaking skills will be integrated in a natural way as the students listen to the teacher´s questions, the song and as they provide answers.  Materials and resources: weather flashcards, hot-air balloon in a big size, Cookie the puppet, worksheets, overhead projector available at the school, teacher´s laptop.  Pedagogical use of ICT in class: when parents come to fetch the sts, they will be given a slip of paper with the website where with their children they can watch the video related to shapes. (The instructions are explained at the end of the plan) Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2jdZ46nK-M In case some students do not have internet, they will be encouraged to tell the parents the shapes they remember while they do the specific hand gestures.  Seating arrangement: Students will sit in a semicircle on the carpet to facilitate eye contact and interaction with the teacher and peers. At this age students still need movement therefore then later on they will be invited to stand up to do the worksheet. They will also perform some movements and specific hand gestures while singing a song.  Cooperative work: As learners at this age are in a social play stage, they will work as a class and /or individually during the lesson but during the graphic activity if some students finish earlier, they will be encouraged to help their classmates.  Possible problems / difficulties and their solutions during the class: In case the learners get bored or misbehave, as it may be expected because of their short time span, the following planned activity will be introduced, seating arrangement will be changed or even the chant “Mr. Silence” to keep in silence will be used. At the time of singing and doing the specific hand gestures to make the shapes, students may have fine motor skills difficulties; if this is the case, at this point, the teacher will not only model but also help the students placing their hands in the best form to make the shapes.  Potential problems students may have with the language: Students are not very used to being given instructions neither use the target language during the whole lesson so probably gestures, repetition and modeling to help their understanding will be applied. At the time a student says a word in his/her
  13. 13. mother tongue the sandwich technique will also be used, saying first the English word, then the Spanish word and finally the English word again.  Assessment: what will be assessed and how: Students´ comprehension will be assessed while students are performing the activities and consequently cheering and positive feedbacks will be given. Students will be encouraged to repeat and produce chunks instead of isolated words. Nevertheless, it will be considered correct if they just follow the instructions with gestures or movements as may be expected at this stage. Interlanguage will be welcomed. Routine: 5´ Purpose : to greet students and get them in focus to start the lesson. Students (sts) will be greeted by the teacher (T) at the door as they enter the classroom.( I will be wearing gloves, a scarf, a coat and a hat for the warm-up stage. These pieces of clothing will create suspense.) The sts have just washed their hands after the art period. I will try to call the students by their names as I already recognize some from the observations. T: Hello, Antonio. Good Morning! Some students will answer “hello Miss”, others “hola Miss”. I will ask the students to get ready to sing the “Hello to Everyone” song. For this routine the teacher gets the students to stand in a circle near the blackboard and while they sing they perform the actions mentioned in the song. At this stage I will mime the gestures while singing the song with them. Hello To Everyone Hello to everyone, and how are you today? We come to our circle time to laugh and sing and play, and when you're up, you're up, and when you're down, you're down, and when you're only half way up, you're neither up nor down, Now roll your hands so slowly, and roll them all so fast Give our hands a clap, clap, clap, and fold them in your lap tap, tap. http://preschoolcircletime.weebly.com/
  14. 14. Transition: Excellent kids! Sit down, please. The sts will sit in a semi circle, looking at the teacher. She will get them get organized as at times they take their time to have a sit. I will sit on those little chairs for kinder to have visual contact with all the kids. Warm-up: 10´ Purpose: to activate previous knowledge of the weather. As part of the daily routines, I will start with the weather. Last class sts revised this topic after a long while as the teacher includes it in the class routines randomly. T: hello kids! Sts: hello. Hello Miss Paula T: Oh you know? Today is very… I will rub my hands while I say this and do the gestures to show I´m cold. I will wait to complete the sentence to see if the sts complete it by themselves. Oh It´s very…. If they do not answer, I will ask: is it hot or cold? Sts: Frio. Cold T: Yes it´s cold. It´s cold. What´s the weather like? Sts. It´s cold. Cold T: Ok. Let´s jump. I will mime for the sts to follow me. T: Now it is hot. I will take off the scarf, gloves, coat and hat. It´s hot! What´s the weather like? Sts: it´s hot. T: now look! I will point at the window. And I’ll ask: is it windy or cloudy? If sts do not answer, I will prompt them by pointing to the weather flashcards introduced in the previous lesson. They have remained on the board of the class. I will continue asking about the other weather conditions until the 5 have been mentioned, I will encourage chorus repetition but in case I see some sts are a bit lost or misbehaving I´ll ask them for individual repetition in order to call their attention back again. Another possibility is to use the chant sts usually sing if the teacher asks for silence: Mr. Silence shut your mouth Coming Mr. Silence shut your mouth FLASHCARDS
  15. 15. http://www.eslprintables.com/vocabulary_worksheets/the_weather_/weather_flashc ards/Weather_Flashcards_512083/ Transition: Excellent work children! Presentation: 10´ Purpose: to set the context and expose the students to the new lexis and structures. T: ok, let´s sit down. (I will ask the sts to sit on the carpet in a semi circle so everybody can see what it is being done)Before starting the class, I would have asked the observer to go to the near room and make some noises at this point of the class. T: Oh, listen kids! Can you hear? I will take my hand to the ear as listening to the noise. I will go to the door of the class and find sth on the floor. I will do this slowly to create suspense. With exclamations I will take the pet of the class, Cookie the cat; but this time he will come in an air balloon like the one below. Inside the balloon only the circle, triangle, square and heart will be drawn. I will prepare one in a bigger size and I will include the cat instead of the body image.
  16. 16. Source: http://www.first-school.ws/t/ap/balloon_colors_shapes.htm T: Oh Cookie, it´s you! Hello Cookie. Say hello kids to Cookie. Sts: Hello cookie. T: It is Cookie and it is an air balloon. And I will touch it for the sts to recognize the object. An air balloon! What is this, kids? Sts: An air balloon! T: And the air balloon has shapes. They are shapes. What are they? I will point to the different shapes glued to the balloon. Sts: Shapes. They are shapes T: Look. This is a triangle. It is a blue triangle. What is this? Sts: It´s a blue triangle. T: Is this a triangle? I will point to the circle. Sts. No T: No, it´s a black circle. I will do the same with the pink square and the red heart. Transition: Perfect! Let´s sing a song with the shapes! I will make the gesture for them to stand up.
  17. 17. - Development ( 10´ ) Activity 1 Purpose: to foster listening comprehension while singing and performing a fine- motor- skill action through the TPR procedure At this point, sts will be invited to go to the SUM. They will have to watch a video on shapes in which the sts not only have to sing a very simple chant but the challenging aspect is that they have to make the shapes with their hands as they sing. I will model and help the sts in need. I assume that the sts will be really engaged so they will watch it twice. In case of electricity shortcut, I will sing the song myself performing the gestures as well and encouraging the sts to follow me. Script: A circle, a triangle, as square, a heart. A circle, a triangle, as square, a heart Can you see a circle? Yes, I can. Can you see a triangle? Yes, I can. A circle, a triangle, as square, a heart. A circle, a triangle, as square, a heart (bis) Video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2jdZ46nK-M Transition: Fantastic children! Now, let´s colour Cookie´s hot-air balloon! Activity 2: Purpose: to interact with the teacher while developing their creativity Sts will be given the empty hot air balloon worksheet with cut out shapes for them to glue inside the balloon as they want to. Meanwhile, I´ll circulate and ask lots of questions e.g. what’s that? Is it a triangle? What colour is the circle? I´ll praise the students, as well. Then, to the whole class I´ll ask who wants to show his/her hot-air balloon and describe them. If some sts finish earlier with their balloon I´ll encourage them to add more shapes to the figures or to help out other classmates so as to foster cooperative work or some of them may also be encouraged to draw Cookie the cat in the basket of the balloon. I wiil provide the shapes in the mentioned colors.
  18. 18. Source: Adapted from Google Images Once the activity has finished, I will collect the worksheets to be included in each student´s folder. Closure: 5´ Transition: “Excellent lesson, kids! You´ve worked hard!” (pointing to the clock on the wall) “It´s time to say goodbye!” Sts will sing the goodbye song they usually sing with the teacher. This time, I will encourage students to sing the goodbye song with me: Now, it´s time to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, goodbye everyone. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, goodbye everyone.

Sit down, please Warm-up: 10´ Purpose: to activate previous knowledge of about the weather. The sts will sit in a semi circle, looking at the teacher. She will get them organized as at times they take their time to have a sit. I will remain on my feet so as to have visual contact with all the kids. As part of the daily routines, I will start with the weather. The previous class sts revised this topic and the flashcards have remained on the blackboard. Today I will concentrate on 4 weather conditions: rainy, windy, stormy and hot. For each condition I will teach the students (sts) an onomatopoeia. For example: when I say “It is windy”, the sts will have to do a blowing sound. A couple of time will be done with the whole class. Then some sts will be asked individually. The same procedure will be used with the other three weather conditions. Next, I will do on the other way around, some sts will be asked to say the weather condition and I will do the sound. At one point I am going to make a mistake, that is to say, make the wrong sound for the sts to correct me. As this is a stirring activity, and some of the sts may be on their feet, in case of misbehavior, I´ll ask the sts for individual repetition in order to call their attention back again. Another possibility is to use the chant sts usually sing if the teacher asks for silence: Mr. Silence shut your mouth Coming Mr. Silence shut your mouth FLASHCARDS
  24. 24. http://www.eslprintables.com/vocabulary_worksheets/the_weather_/weather_flashc ards/Weather_Flashcards_512083/ Transition: Excellent work children! Presentation: 10´ Purpose: to set the context and expose the students to the new lexis and structures. T: ok, let´s sit down. (I will ask the sts to sit again on the carpet in a semi circle so everybody can see what it is being done). I will remain on my feet to feel free to do the gestures and for the sts to have eye-contact. I will have the board at my back to have it at hand at the time of sticking the poster I will use. I will take Cookie the cat from my bag and he will have stuck the picture shown below. T: Look kids! Hello Cookie!! Oh, this is the family Cookie the cat likes to visit. Cookie visits this family. I will then stick the poster on the board, the members of the family will be already colored and the picture of the pet will be included in the picture. I will do as if the cat is whispering something to me. T: Oh Kids, listen! At this point, I will read a rhyme twice, pointing to the family members on the poster as they are mentioned. My Family I walk slowly with my brother. I walk quickly with my father. Grandfather loves to talk to me. Mother holds me when I’m sad. Sister laughs at silly faces. Grandmother takes me to lots of places. This is my family and I.

Then I will ask while pointing to the family members. T: who is this? Is this the father or the mother? Sts: mother! T. ok, it is the mother! Repeat. It is the mother. I will do the same with the other members of the family. Transition: Perfect! Let´s play a game! Are you ready? Yes? I will show my thumb up. - Development ( 10´ ) Activity 1 Purpose: to foster listening comprehension while identifying family members. I will use the same picture of the family to do this activity, it is still stuck on the blackboard. I will start pointing at the different family members but quickly. I will ask the sts to say “stop”. When they do it, I will place my finger on a family member and I will ask to the whole class : who is this? Is it the mother or the father? Sts: father! T: excellent! It´s the father. I will repeat the same action a couple of times with the whole class. Then I will ask one st to come to the front and do the quick movement, when another chosen classmate says stop, the st pointing at the family member has to say who he/ she is.
  26. 26. T: Who´s this, Lautaro? St: It´s the grandmother. T: Well done kids! Transition: Fantastic children! Now, let´s colour the family! Activity 2: Purpose: to foster listening skill while having fan I´ll deliver some worksheets with the members of the family on. I´ll hold one copy up in the air for all the sts to see. I´ll point to one member of the family at a time to elicit their names and revise all the members. Then I´ll give the instructions: while listening again to the rhyme used in the presentation , students will have to color the member of the family mentioned. I will model the first one. Once the activity has finished, the worksheets will be collected to be included in each student´s folder. Closure: 5´ Transition: “Excellent lesson, kids! You´ve worked hard!” (pointing to the clock on the wall) “It´s time to say goodbye!” Sts will sing the goodbye song they usually sing with the teacher. This time, I will encourage students to sing the goodbye song with me: Now, it´s time to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, goodbye everyone. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye.
  27. 27. Now, it´s time to say goodbye, goodbye everyone. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCr2t34vkIE Finally, I will put my material together and leave the room.

Goodbye! The weather stormy, rainy, windy, hot and cold The imperative Recognizing, naming and describing parts of the body -Giving and following commands -Wh questions in the simple present How are you today? -What´s the weather like today? It´ s (sunny). Recognition and use of the sounds of Toe /təʊ/
  29. 29. Sit down! Stand up! Look! Listen! Repeat! Parts of the body: Head, shoulder, knee, toe Colours: Pink, red, black, blue Numbers: 1 to 5 and /or instructions. -Polite requests -Let´s sit down… -Yes/no questions -Is it cloudy or rainy? It´s … Are they (blue) or (black)? -Affirmative sentences. It´s (cold). NEW Parts of the body: Eye Mouth Nose Recognizing and describing parts of the face -Yes/no questions -Is it a ……or a ….? It´s a … Can you hear? -Wh questions -What´s this? It´s a (mouth) . What color is the eye? It is (blue). How many (eyes) are there? - Polite Requests Let´s colour the…. Let´s stretch your body Recognition and use of the final sounds in: Nose /nəʊz/ Mouth /maʊθ/  Teaching approach: Natural approach and Total Physical Response method.  Integrating skills: Listening and Speaking skills will be integrated in a natural way as the students listen to the teacher´s questions, the song and as they provide answers.
  30. 30.  Materials and resources: weather flashcards, poster with the outline of the monster´s face, worksheets, crayons, Cookie the puppet  Pedagogical use of ICT in class: In this lesson there will not be any use of ICT in class by students. They will work with elements provided by the teacher.  Seating arrangement: Students will sit in a semicircle on the carpet to facilitate eye contact and interaction with the teacher and peers. At this age students still need movement therefore then later on they will be invited to stand up to do the worksheet. They will also perform some movements and specific hand gestures while singing a song.  Cooperative work: As learners at this age are in a social play stage, they will work as a class and /or individually during the lesson but during the graphic activity if some students finish earlier, they will be encouraged to improve their worksheets like adding or coloring some other parts of the face.  Possible problems / difficulties and their solutions during the class: In case the learners get bored or misbehave, as it may be expected because of their short time span, the following planned activity will be introduced, seating arrangement will be changed or even the chant “Mr. Silence” to keep in silence will be used. At the time of singing and doing the specific hand gestures to make the shapes, students may have fine motor skills difficulties; if this is the case the teacher will not only model but also help the students at that point.  Potential problems students may have with the language: Students are not very used to being given instructions neither use the target language during the whole lesson so probably gestures, repetition and modeling to help their understanding will be applied. Ultimately, at the time a student says a word in his/her mother tongue, I will say the English equivalent and showing approval for the student not to become demotivated.  Assessment: what will be assessed and how: Students´ comprehension will be assessed while performing the activities and consequently cheering and positive feedbacks will be given. Students will be encouraged to repeat and produce chunks instead of isolated words. Nevertheless, it will be considered correct if they just follow the instructions with gestures or movements as may be expected at this stage. Interlanguage will be welcomed. Routine: 5´ Purpose : to greet students and get them on focus to start the lesson.
  31. 31. I will greet the students (sts) once they are already sat on the carpet T: Hello kids. Good Morning! Some students will answer “hello Miss”, others “hola Miss”. I will ask the students to get ready to sing the “Hello to Everyone” song. For this routine, as we have done before the students will stand in a circle near the blackboard and while they sing they perform the actions mentioned in the song. At this stage, I will mime the gestures while singing the song with them. Hello To Everyone I´m Cookie, Cookie the cat Say hello to Cookie, hello, hello, hello I´m Denzel, Denzel the duck Say hello to Denzel, hello, hello, hello I´m Lulu, Lulu the kangaroo Say hello to Lulu, hello, hello, hello https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWv55iA-RHI Transition: Excellent kids! Sit down, please. The sts will sit in a semi circle, looking at the teacher. She will get them organized as at times they take their time to have a sit. I will sit on those little chairs for kinder to have visual contact with all the kids. Warm-up: 10´ Purpose: to activate previous knowledge of the weather. As part of the daily routines, I will start with the weather. During the previous class, sts were taught an onomatopoeic word for each of these four weather conditions: rainy, windy, stormy and hot. So today, the idea is to revise them and include a chant. T: hello kids! Sts: hello. Hello Miss Paula T: Oh you know? Today is very… I will rub my hands while I say this and do the gestures to show I´m cold and I´ll do the onomatopoeia. I will wait to complete the sentence to see if the sts complete it by themselves. Oh It´s very…. If they do not answer, I will ask: is it hot or cold? Sts: Frio. Cold T: Yes it´s cold. It´s cold. What´s the weather like? Sts. It´s cold. Cold I ´ll repeat the same procedure with the other two weather conditions. As in the previous classes, as I say the conditions, I will stick the flashcards on the board. T: Ok. Let´s sing. I will say the first line for the sts to follow me.
  32. 32. This is a chant the teacher told me she has already introduced but several classes ago, so it will be a revision instance for the sts. How´s the Weather song How´s the weather? It´s (sunny) How´s the weather? It´s (sunny) How´s the weather? It´s (sunny), it´s (sunny) today. The same will be done with the other three weather conditions while I point at the weather flashcards. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8GeA3anPdo As usual, I will encourage chorus repetition but in case I see some sts are a bit lost or misbehaving I´ll ask them for individual repetition in order to call their attention back again. Another possibility is to use the chant sts usually sing if the teacher asks for silence: Mr. Silence, Mr Silence shut your mouth Coming Mr. Silence shut your mouth FLASHCARDS http://www.eslprintables.com/vocabulary_worksheets/the_weather_/weather_flashc ards/Weather_Flashcards_512083/ Transition: Excellent work children! Presentation: 10´ Purpose: to set the context and expose the students to the new lexis and structures. T: ok, let´s sit down. (I will ask the sts to sit on the carpet in a semi circle so everybody can see what it is being done) I will sit on a tiny chair, the one used in kinder for the
  33. 33. sts to see me and for me to have visual contact with all of them. I will wait until all are quiet to have the sts´ attention. I will have my bag next to me, I will do as if looking for sth and I will get Cookie the class puppet. T: “Oh Cookie, it´s you! Hello Cookie. Say hello kids to Cookie”. Sts: “Hello Cookie”. I will do as if Cookie is whispering sth in my ear. T: “Oh, Cookie is tired”. I will do the gesture for the sts to understand. “Let´s stand up. Let´s stretch our bodies”. Again, I will do the mime and I will encourage the sts to do the same. “Antonio, stretch your body!” T: “Cookie, are you ok, now?” I will take the puppet to my ear again. T: “Cookie says touch your eye”. As this is a new word for the sts I will do the gesture. And encourage the sts to do the same. “Laura, touch your eye”. The same will be done with mouth and nose. Transition: Fantastic kids! Go to your tables and sit down! - Development ( 10´ ) Activity 1 Purpose: to foster sts´ production while drawing a monster´s face I will stick on the blackboard a poster with the outline of a monster´s face like the one below. The eyes, mouth and nose will be erased. Only the outline of the face will be left. So sts will be watching from their tables to the poster on the board. T: “Ok now, listen. We are going to draw a monster, an ugly monster!” I will do the gesture for the sts to understand the meaning of ugly, as monster and mostruo are cognates or even from the movie Monster´s Inc I think they won´t have problems at the time of understanding that word.
  34. 34. Source: Adapted from Google Images T: “How many eyes for this monster: 3 or 4?” I will do the gestures of the numbers with my hand and I will point to my eye as well. Sts will be asked to put up their hands to answer. T: “What color are the eyes? Are they blue, black, pink?” I will use the same procedure for mouth and nose. Transition: Excellent children! Now, let´s draw your monster´s face! Activity 2:
  35. 35. Purpose: to interact with the teacher while developing their creativity Sts will be given the worksheet with the outline like the one above and crayons for them to draw the different face parts. Meanwhile, I´ll circulate and ask lots of questions e.g. what’s that? What colour is the eye? What colour is the mouth? Is this eye small or big? How many ears are there? I´ll praise the students, as well. Then, to the whole class I´ll ask who wants to show his/her face and describe them. If some sts finish earlier I´ll encourage them to draw Cookie the cat´s face next to the monster´s face. Once the activity has finished, the worksheets will be collected to be included in each student´s folder. Closure: 5´ Transition: “Excellent lesson, kids! You´ve worked hard!” (pointing to the clock on the wall) “It´s time to say goodbye!” Sts will say the goodbye chant they usually do with their teacher. This time, I will encourage students to say the goodbye chant and do the mimicry with me: Teddy bear, Teddy bear turn around, Teddy bear, Teddy bear touch the ground, Teddy bear, Teddy bear touch your shoes, Teddy bear, Teddy bear goodbye to you!
