Activity 1 : Warm up
T: Children, I hope that all of you have got a friend. Let’s find students who have no friends. You should throw the ball to some student and ask the question “Have you got a friend? The student who caught the ball should answer ‘Yes, I have’ or ‘No, I have not.’ One of the students will summarize your answers at the end of activity.
Review with the students the words for people’s character.
Ask the students to read the words: good, polite, helpful, kind, rude, clever, bad, friendly, nice, lazy, active, stupid, pretty, neat, weak, strong, quick, brave, sly, cruel and greedy on the poster.
Give the students some time to choose and write 3 words related their friends’ character.
· Tell the students thatthe theme of the unit is closely connected with the theme: “Friends” that at the end of the third lesson of the unit they will be able to compare the character of their friends with the character of two main characters of the fable.
· Ask students questions in order to find out the concept of the word ‘fable’:
Tell me, please, who are the main characters of a fable?
Do animals in the fable act like people?
Can we deduce any moral from the fable?
Who has read any Krylov’s or Aesop’s fables?
· Tell the students to guess which of two animals will be the main characters of the fable. Give the picture of the tiger to one student and the picture of the mouse to another one. Other students in the class should ask the question: “Will it be a goat, a pig…?” The students who have pictures answer: “No, it won’t”. “Yes, it will be”.
