*Teacher presents keywords to students using word cards
*The story is full of questions. Look at the use of question marks in the story. Can you write your own questions and put a question mark in the correct place?
Before reading the story, look at the title and cover. Predict what the surprise might be. Then, read the blurb on the back cover? does this give any more clues about the surprise?
For the pre-reading part,before reading the book,teacher will make students expect the next page so that students can participate more during while-reading part by checking whether their expectation is right or wrong. Usually it is more casual to present keywords first, and get into the story. I decided, however, to look through the book first. After going through the book, teacher will present some new keywords that students might not know, and do some drilling with them .
*Teacher play the video of the story
*Teacher and the students read the book together.
*Students check their understanding through some quiz.
*Students read the book again by themselves,and with their partner.
In this activity, students actually read the book.At first,students’ job is to check their expectation they made before. After that,teacher and students read the book together to practice reading. Students then go back to their seat and do some quiz through PPT to check students’ understanding of the book. It would be better if they do this activity through worksheet,but due to the time limit,this activity is shortened.Last,each student gets the book,and practice reading to increase their reading fluency.
*Retell the story in the form of a storyboard with captions and speech bubbles for each character / animal.
*Act the story
*Work in group,add some words or signs to complete the thinking map
*Rewrite the story from Handa's point of view. What does she think happened to the original fruit in her basket?
In this activity, students enhance their reading skills by combining with writing. Students have learned and practiced reading about the story. This time they get a chance to personalize by writing one sentence that they can actually practice in their daily lives, And through sharing their writing with other students, they can also practice speaking and listening.
