Material: laptop with data show, or DVD+ TV set in an Audio visual room. Printed song with gaps.
Procedure: 1-Download this song using (Real Player-version 11).
2-Play it and master it before class.
3- Try it in classroom without pupils to see how well your material is working!
4- Now ready to start:
Introduction:- Introduce the topic of the song "Dinosaurs" : kinds of dinosaurs, food, habitat, movement, ...etc.
Practice:- Set pupils to listen Three times: First, just listen and follow on their handouts. Then, listen sentence after sentence (here teachers pauses to let them write missing words)
- Finally, listen to check what they missed.
- Oral correction and practise of QQ/ AA eg:
Q:Did they use to slither? Yes/No

Q: Did they use to eat meat?
Q: What did they use to eat?
Produce:

LYRICS: (choose what words you leave off)
Dinosaur Song Lyrics

They used to walk
They used to swim
They used to fly with a toothey grin
Some ate plants
Some ate meat
Some walked around on just two feet

[Chorus]
Oh the dinosaurs!
Big as trees
The dinosaurs
Brians like peas
Jaws and claws and
teeth and bones
that used to growl and groan and moan
*roar*

Some had feathers
some had scales
spikes, and claws,
and whip-like tails
they fought like dragons,
the earth sure shook
the volcano sizzled
and the lava cooked

[[repeat chours]]

Tyrannosaurus Rex was a terrible king
the stegosaurus' tail could really swing
Brachiosaurus liked to stomp
Trachodon would chew and chomp

[[repeat chorus]]

They roamed the earth a hundred-million years
without worries, cares, or fears
Then one day, they hit the soil
Now they're fossils, gas, and oil

[[repeat chorus x2]]

*all roar*

That's very interesting indeed but the problem that we could face is the big number of pupils in a class.

PostSubject: Group work   Fri Nov 14, 2008 10:05 am

Indeed! Teaching large classes has long been our main problem! We've been, during the last workshop organized by the British council, advised to set pupils to work in group! You may present this song as a "gigsaw Reading", that is you cut it in parts and set group to tell the other about what they have learnt from their reading part. The procedure goes on this way till the whole text is covered.
