“You should have a pet, who will be a good friend to you”
“I have many slaves “
“But they are only slaves and not friends. Find a pet, and it will love you and be a good friend of yours”
“Where can I find it?”
“Let’s fly to the magic country!”
“Ok, that’s great”
And so they started their travelling. The first animal they saw was a green frog.
“Do you like it?”
“No, I don’t”. The frog jumped away.
Then they saw a beautiful bird. It was a parrot with the red wings and a green tail.
“Do you like it?”
“Yes I do. But how can I talk to him?”
“Oh, this parrot can talk”
“Wow, that’s lovely”
Then they saw a big brown cat with a white tail, sleeping under the big tree and a small white dog with black spots”
“Oh, I adore them”
“Ok, let’s count to three and we’ll come back home”
The princess counted and when she opened her eyes she found herself in her room and next to her there were that magic cat, a dog and a parrot”
They made friends quickly and the girl was happy.
Post-lesson reflection note
The class where I wanted to show this lesson consisted of twelve 8-9 -year -old pupils of the second form. The course- book was according to the school program Spotlight by Marina Pospelova, Virginia Evans, Jenny Dooley, Nadezhda Bykova.
The story which was attached in Appendix was written by the teacher (me). It was used to introduce the topic “Animals”, new vocabulary and structures. Besides I wanted my pupils to get the main idea from the text.
In the lesson I introduced new vocabulary and I tried to present it in a context which was familiar to the children. That’s why I’ve written a story using the words which we have already learnt in the lessons. Also the pupils liked their favourite enjoyable activity- to practice colours. Visual support helped me much, because the flashcards helped my pupils understand the meaning of the new words and make them more memorable.
The pupils enjoyed the lesson!!!!
