·    Play the audio again making pauses for Ps to repeat. Do it twice.

·    Choose a P to come up and put any of the small cutout pictures into the box. Stay with your back to him. Other Ps can see what he/she puts inside the box. Then turn round and ask saying, ‘Is it a ...?”. Elicit your Ps to answer, “Yes, it is” or “No, it isn't.” Encourage another pair of Ps to play. (P1 puts the card into the box. At that time P2 stays with his/her back to him/ her, then turns round and tries to guess what's inside the box asking “Is it a ...?”. You and your Ps answer, “Yes, it is” or “No, it isn't” in chorus. Do it with two pairs of Ps.


PB p.24 t.1

·    Get your Ps to open their PBs on page 24. Explain to Ps that they should listen to the speaker and point to each person who is speaking. Play PB Audio (track Unit -2-Les_4-1).

·    Play the audio again making pauses for Ps to repeat.

AB p.16 t.1

·    Ask Ps to open their ABs on page 16. Explain that they should work in pairs. P1 asks about the object that is hidden under the cover, “Is it a ...?” and P2 answers (positively, as usual).

·    Let Ps colour the appropriate objects. Ask four pairs with their ABs to show their pictures and demonstrate their talk about one of the objects in front of the class.

Making Mini-Flashcards

AB p.85

·    Explain to Ps that they should open their ABs on page 85 and cut out the pictures in order to get small cards with school things like the ones you have (show them yours) and put them into the envelopes.

PB p.24 t.3

·    Draw Ps' attention to the icon in task 3. Tell the Ps that they are going to work in pairs. One P should take a card out of his/her envelope hiding its picture so that his/her mate can't see it. Another pupil tries to guess what is in it and asks the question, “Is it a ...?”. The first pupil answers positively or negatively. Ps should take turns.


Play “Missing Pictures” Game

·    Stick the flashcards (# 18 -25) on the board.

·    Choose a P to come up to the board.

·    Ask the rest of the Ps to look at the pictures carefully for a few seconds and tell them to close their eyes.

·    The P at the board has to remove one of the pictures.

·    After he/she has done it, the rest of the Ps open their eyes and try to guess which picture is missing by asking about the school object depicted on the missing card using the structure ‘Is it a ...?” The P answers, “Yes, it is” (and shows the card) or “No, it isn't.

·    Repeat the procedure with other Ps till time permits.

Optional activity

Play ‘Pairs’ Game

·    Ps use their small flashcards (that they've made of cut-outs).

·    In pairs, Ps play ‘Pairs'. They shuffle together two sets of mini cards and spread them out face down on the desk.

·    The goal of the game is to collect pairs of cards.

·    P1 turns over two cards and says, e.g., “Pencil... bag.” If they are not a pair, P1 turns them back over and it is P2's turn.

·    If a pupil finds a pair of cards (e.g., two pencils) he/she says, ‘Pencil... pencil!' and picks up the cards. He/She then has another turn.

·    The winner is the pupil with the most pairs of cards at the end of the game.
