Introducing the new sequence and the initial situation is very important because it sheds some light over the objective .It’s like giving learners a candle to move with in a dark path,each time they discover new items using this tiny light.
For sequence one in the second grade,lesson one,I found myself obliged to deal with it in two hours,you may say that’s too much but when you see my objective , you will pardon me.
To introduce the sequence ME,My Friends and My family,I had to revise family members .This latter led me to draw the family tree.
Now,talking about a family tree may lead us to revise personal pronouns and possessive adjectives.
Since we are going to deal with them once more, and since that the program is overcrowded I decided to deal with them right from the beginning to gain time.
Next,I had to introduce the initial situation, once more, I drew a simple map for my learners and then we had to revise introducing oneself.
How did I do that, I have used Omar’s profile and asked them what do you see in this profile?”
Pupils answered:”name,family name,age…….etc”,it means introducing myself,next what else do they see?
A photo…………………..What’s in a photo? Eyes,ears,face, hair ………….body parts
It means Physical appearance ,using some drawings.
Here is the lesson 1 plan
