T: Well, children, I am sure you already know something about these popular holidays, now listen to me attentively and give the name of the holiday which I describe – guess the riddles - отгадайтемоизагадки


  1. People called this holiday after the man who discovered America. His name was Christopher. What is this holiday? (Columbus Day) T: – I think, you know something about this man from your geography lessons, don’t you?

  2. It is the most important holiday in our country. It is in spring. People have street parades in the day time and set off fireworks when it is dark. (Victory Day) T: – Sure, in 1945 Great Patriotic War ended. I guess that some of your great grandparents died defending our country. Andnowwe’rehappytoliveinpeace.

  3. It’s a big festival in the USA and Canada to celebrate the harvest. The special foods on the table are a turkey, sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. (ThanksgivingDay).

  4. People decorate the houses with bright lights and ornaments. They exchange postcards and gifts. Children like this holiday very much, because they always find presents early in the morning. (Christmas) T: You see, in America and England people celebrate Christmas in December, but in Russia it’s in January.

  5. This festival lasts for three days. People treat their guests with sweet rice cakes and fresh fruit. (the Korean harvest moon festival Chuseok) T: We don’t have such a holiday in Russia.

  6. The traditional colours of this holiday are orange, black and yellow. Children dress up in costumes of skeletons, goblins, black cats and spiders. There are many jack-o-lanterns in the streets when it is dark. (Halloween)

T: Very good, children. I knew, you could do the task.

Ребята, а вы знаете, почему этот праздник так называется? Why do people call this holiday in such a way - ‘Halloween’? Doesanybodyknowthehistoryofthisholiday? (Если учащиеся знают, то рассказывают, если нет, то учитель расширяет кругозор учащихся.)

*** Семантизация названия праздника (история возникновения)

T: Много лет назад люди верили, что 31 октября – особая ночь, когда нечистая сила – ведьмы, привидения, демоны кружатся в небе и могут накликать беду, надо было напугать их и откупиться какими-нибудь подарками. С тех пор и пошла традиция переодеваться в маскарадные костюмы злых духов и устраивать шествия по ночным улицам с зажженными свечами и фонарями.

А еще одна из версий названия праздника Halloween = Hello, winter! Как вы думаете, почему? Если дети молчат, то учитель поясняет, сопровождая свой рассказ цветными иллюстрациями, изображающими погоду поздней осенью (чтобы облегчить понимание иноязычной речи, не прибегая к русскому переводу): InOctoberit’scold, theweatherisrainyandwindy, sometimesitsnows. The days are getting shorter, the nights are long and dark. = So soon after Halloween winter comes! Thus, Halloween = Hello, winter!

: Thanksgiving is a festival to celebrate the harvest. I think, people in America and Canada grow many pumpkins in their kitchen gardens.

T: You’re absolutely right. And people usually have some sweet pumpkin pie for dessert on Thanksgiving Day. And why is this holiday called Thanksgiving Day? What are the traditions?

*** Семантизация названия праздника

Thanksgiving Day – an unusual name for the holiday. Look here - thanks = thank you, what does it mean? (спасибо, благодарить кого-то), andtogive – gave – given = давать, дарить. So, on this day the Americans say ‘thank you’ to every person around them, to those people whom they love very much. Учитель может прочитать стихотворение наизусть по-английски:


e) Doing ‘Thanksgiving Quiz’ (p. 101)(Сl)

T: Now, friends, open your textbooks at page 101. You can find a quiz here with five phrases about Thanksgiving Day in America. Look through the quiz very quickly and choose the right variant A, B or C. I give you a minute to do the task… So, the time is over. Now, listen to the radio programme and check your answers. … How many right answers did you get? What is your score – 4, 5 points? Very nice, indeed.

T: Now, boys and girls, it’s time for reading. You will get some more information about the holidays in English-speaking countries. (Before reading the texts): But, please, look at the blackboard, there are some words here which will help you to understand the texts better.Repeatafter me – Unknown words on the blackboard from the text ‘Halloween’

jack-o-lantern – показ игрушки – огонек-фонарик их тыквы(T →Сl)

neighbours [ neib∂z] – контекст(e. g. Look here. Masha and Olga sit together. They are neighbours. Ira is Ann’s neighbour, they sit at the same desk, too.)

trick or treat’ – перевод-толкование - «угощенье или шутка», показ корзинки с угощениями

from the text ‘Thanksgiving Day’

early settlers – перевод - первыепоселенцыenough [in∆f] = not much, not little (= достаточно)

died – the antonym of the word ‘was born’Native [ neitiv] Americans коренныежители

festive dinner – all the members of the family are together at table and they have some special foods on the table, they cook something unusual for this dinner

Let’s translate these words.
