Lesson Title: Awesome Fun Phrase and T-Shirt Picture Drawing Learnin’ Time
Name(s) of Teacher(s): Sam Van Ginhoven
Class/Grade/Language Level: Elementary, Grade 5
Textbook and specific lesson: Hi Friends 1, Lesson 5, What do you like?
Goal: To make kids say this awesome phrase and learn English
Preparation: Just making a simple t-shirt print on white paper for the kids.
Class time: 20-25mins
This lesson is going to help students create and make their own t-shirts with their friends, drawing and coloring on paper, using an awesome English phrase that isn’t too hard to follow.
Question: a) What do you want? Phrase: b) I want (number) (big/small) (color) (shape(s)). (It looks complicated for 5th graders, but it’s so easy and fun! Most of the kids know numbers, sizes, colors and shapes already.)
Numbers: 1-5 (1-10 is good but takes longer..)
Sizes: Big and small (only!)
Colors: red, blue, yellow, green, black, purple, light blue, gold, silver, etc. (keep it simple)
Shapes: star, triangle, diamond, square, heart, circle
(use easy ones. Kids know diamond if you mention baseball ;-)
Before you try the phrase with the coloring activity, you should practice numbers, sizes, colors, and shapes first for 5-10 minutes. Quiz the kids with big cards or use the book and digital blackboard, anything that helps.
For the using the phrases, use the exact order as stated above. Please work slowly and speak slowly with the kids and JTE. Everyone should get it! The JTE will enjoy it too; even if their English isn’t great
a) What do you want?
b) I want 2 big yellow ☆(s)… The students doodles on their friend’s shirt.
b) What do you want?
a) I want 1 small red triangle △… The students doodles on their friend’s shirt.
a) What do you want?
b) I want 5 big green circles ○… The students doodles on their friend’s shirt.
(Singular and plural is great to get across to the students, but don’t stress it if students can’t use S’s on words)
(Have the kids say it slowly together with you, draw 2 big yellow stars on the blackboard on a shirt)
My finally comments:
The students do the activity till you decide when it’s finished! Don’t let the kids detail too long or else they won’t ask many questions with each other. Make sure they rotate on asking questions. Have them speak as much as possible. Practice the phrases as much as possible. The kids will understand it well. Have some demonstrate as well.
