How did you structure the class?
4.15-4.30 (15mins): Warm-Up, Game: vocabulary conversation (in pairs): each student has the same number of words (written on vocabulary cards); they have to have a conversation and use the words they have on their cards. The team who finishes first, wins.
4.30-5.15 (45mins): Song: 21,22,23
- watch song without music; what do you think – what kind of music is it?
- The titel is 21,22,23 – what could it be about?
- Show them the refrain – make a suggestion what could be in the gaps.
- Listen to song together
- Hand out gap text – students try to fill in
- Listen again
- Underline unknown words
- Go through text together
- Meaning of the song? – discussion
- Write a new refrain (for example a response to the song)
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
mac book, vocabulary cards, gab texts
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
They liked the song and they were very interested in the expressions and vocabulary used. They liked guessing how the music is like.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
Some music vocabulary would be helpful to talk about the topic. Maybe a series of lessons on music would be a good idea.
