Partner 1 takes a copy-book and a pen and gets ready to write. Partner 2 runs around the classroom looking for the sentences. When he finds the first sentence, he reads it and tries to remember.

Lion King

         Once upon a time in a far away country there lived (a king).  He had a wife – (a queen) and a daughter – (a princess). They lived in a wonderful (castle).

         The princess was beautiful. A young (prince/knight) wanted to marry her. But one day a terrible (ogre/dragon) came and took the princess away. He took her to (a tower/a cave).

         The (king) and the (queen) were very sad. They cried. The (king) promised (a bag of gold/the king’s land) to the man who could save his daughter.

         The (knight/prince) was very brave. He went to the (cave/tower), killed the (ogre/dragon) and saved the princess.

         The (king) was very happy. He gave the hero (a bag of gold/the king’s land). The young (prince/knight) and the princess married and lived happily ever after.

          9. Grammar. Stepping stones.

T: Now we need two teams of the same size. Imagine that this desk is a river and these pieces of paper are the stones. There are words on the pieces of paper. Your task is to cross the river (to make sentences) stepping onto the right stone. If you make a mistake, you fall into the river and have to return. When all the members of the team cross the river, the team wins. You can’t repeat the same sentence.

          10. The results of the lesson. Hometask.

T: You worked very hard today. You were active and clever. Your answers were very good and you deserve good marks. Your hometask is to learn the names of the animals’ kids and to make up a list of animals living in the forest and on the farm in writing.
