I Introduction

1 Greeting The «Hello» song ~ 2 min

2 The topic and the objectives of the lesson. ~1 min

The topic of our today’s lesson is ‘My birthday’. We’re going to recollect the memories of your last birthday and share them with everybody. So, we’re going to sing and talk using the grammar of the topic ‘Simple Past of the verbs’. You’re going to do small research work on the topic. At the end of the lesson, you’ll give marks to your classmates and appreciate their work during the lesson.

3 Warmer “Cross the river” Group work ~3 min

           Draw a river on the board with two sets of four stepping stones across the river (if you like drawing you may add dangers like crocodiles, sharks, snakes in the river, etc.). Write team A and Team B underneath the two sets of stepping stones. Divide the class into 2 groups. Tell children the rules- you are going to show each team different flashcards, and they must guess the words correctly to move across the river. Show one team a flashcard, choose one child in that team to give the answer, he/she may consult friends and then should give the answer. If the child answers correctly, write the word on this team’s stepping stone, if the answer is incorrect, ask another team to tell you the word and write the word on this team’s stepping stone. The first team to complete the four stepping stones with words crosses the river and wins.

                   My birthday  

                            It was my birthday yesterday!

I didn’t shop or cook,

I opened lots of birthday cards

And started a good book.

It was my birthday yesterday!

My day was really great!

Lots of friends came round for tea,

We finished all the cake!

It was my birthday yesterday!

Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!

I had a party with my friends,

We sang and danced and played!


        Children should look at the song pictures, imagine that they were at a birthday party and answer the question “What did the children do?” (They sang and danced.)

Ask “What things can you see in the pictures?”

Elicit Balloons, a cake, presents and a book.

Play the recording for children and they should listen and follow in their books. Recite the words of the song with the class – say each line and ask children to repeat. Play the recording one more time.
