    The ST gives them a short introduction about the topic by asking questions to check their prior knowledge. After that, ST is going to give instructions about a game that will keeping in mind their prior knowledge and will add more knowledge while they are having fun and paying attention to the English class.


    At the begging of the English class, the Ss (students)  will be divided into groups and ask for one volunteer from each set. The volunteer will need to stand in the middle of their group while the other children will pick up a body part flash card with a word and stick them to the volunteers clothes or body.

    While, 50 minutes

    • The first activity in the “while” can be develop in a classroom if the computer room is not available, as a plan B: The ST is going to play a song in the CD player, and when the music starts, the children must dance around the room, when the ST stops the music, put up a body flash card, or just yell out the vocabulary. Then the children must find a partner and touch the appropriate body part on the other child for example, * Hands - touch palms of hands together and sit down. However, if the Ss are in lab, the ST is going to project a video song and Ss should practice by listening and singing.

    • For the next activity, ST will give a sheet of paper to each student to draw and if there are computers each one will do it in an application called "Sketchpad". When they are done drawing, ST will ask them how many limbs he has, always remembering to use the body parts in English to review them.

    • Finally, in the last activity, ST will show them the game called "Memory Game", where they will be playing it. This activity is amazing for their brains because it will help them to improve their memory and they will learn the vocabulary through listening, word recognition, reading and spelling. While they picture is being shown too.

    The Ss will receive an explanation about the topic. Then they are going to listen to an audio with the pronunciation of each of the words and  they are going to watch a video song. After that, Ss are goin to do this activity called: Make your own monster!. In this activity, Ss have to draw his own monster with as many arms, heads, eyes and legs as they want. You can color it later and give it a name. At the end of while Ss are going to play a Memory Game.
