Presenting the Topic. Today we are going to talk about things every kid likes most of all, about toys.
Singing a song.
Children, I know like learning English. Let’s sing a song and show everybody how you like it. (The children sing “ABC” jazz chant by Caroline Graham, dance with flags “I like English!”)
Stage 2”. A Game “Magic Box”
You sing and dance so great! I see you really like English. You deserve a surprise.
I have got a magic box. There is something for you in it. What do you think, what is it?
(The children try to guess).
- Do you agree with him/her?
-Do you really think it is a …?
- Do you have other ideas?
- Let’s have a look. Max, open the box, please. You are right. I’ve got toys for you!
My dears, now you will have a very interesting task. I need a volunteer. I will close your eyes with a scarf. You must put your hand into the box and take one of the toys. Ask Yes/No questions and try to guess what toy you have got.
(One of the come to the box one by one, choose a toy and ask: “Is it a ball?”, “Is it a doll?” etc. The others give short positive or negative answers)
Stage3. Physical warming-up
I see you really like toys. What toys do you like most? Can you show us?
(The pupils recite a poem using their mimics, gestures, movements.)
I like toys, all the toys:
Big toys, small toys,
Tall toys, short toys,
Red toys, green toys,
Old toys, new toys,
My toys, your toys.
Stage4.”Can I cross the river, Mr. Crocodile?”
Now, children, I will show you another game. It is called “Can I cross the river, Mr. Crocodile?” I’ll show you two masks of a crocodile. Do you like this crocodile? Why not? (The pupils answer: “Because it is angry / ugly”). And what about this one? Do you like it? Why? (“It is pretty / funny / kind”.)
There is a river between you and Mr. Crocodile. Can you see the box on the other side of the river? There is a treasure in it. I will divide you into 2 groups. Your task is to get the treasure. Ask Mr. Crocodile to cross the river, choose one of the cards (waves) and complete short poems about toys.
Crocodile: Hello, children!
Children: Hello, Mr. Crocodile. Can I cross the river?
Crocodile: Of course you can. But first complete my poems.
(Children complete poems and start reciting them one by one, cross the river and take coins from the box):
P1: My …(doll)
Is pretty and small.
Crocodile: Thank you, my dear!
P2: My teddy bear
Has got …(brown hair).
C: It’s a fantastic poem!
P3: My … (dog) can walk.
It cannot … (talk).
C: Well done!
P4: My …(ball) can roll
and roll and roll.
C: Oh, and I can’t roll!
P5: Look at my…( car).
It shines like a star.
C: You are great!
P6: My… (rocket) will soon
take me to the moon.
C:I like your poem!
P7: My fluffy … (kitten )

C: You are a real poet! Thank you, children! The treasure is yours!
