Previous learning Learners read the story working on unfamiliar words to the text. They got full information of the story and ready to do some post-reading activities
Planned timings Planned activities Resources
Teacher shows a picture of the story and asks what they see (for less motivated students). They recall the title of the story “Godlilock and the three bears”. Then she may ask where this episode took place in the story.
For more motivated students she shows a video of the cartoon without sound for 30-50 seconds. Then she may ask what cartoon characters are talking about.
After the short conversation, she introduces the lesson objectives and asks them to put them down on their copy books:
To do vocabulary revision on this story
Make up sentences using those words
Use those words in your speech. (sequencing activity, role-play, ). PPT. Slide 1-2
The first post-reading activity.
Teacher asks learners to find true or false statements. This task will be presented as a formative assessment at the end they may check for their text comprehension using assessment criteria. (if they collect 6 score out of 8 they could manage this task and can be praised with a star). The answers will be checked with the help of the teacher. In order to evaluate their work they may check each other’s work.
We read the story about 2 bears and a princess. F
The girl’s mother asked her daughter to go to the shop to buy some bread. F

To pick up flowers, to lose her way, to belong to, porridge, to smell, big bowl, feet were sore, to climb up the stairs, to scream, to fall asleep, to wake someone up, to apologize , to become friends
The third post-reading activities. The teacher distributes the tasks according to their levels. She explains their functions and shows assessment criteria. Learners are given 20 minutes for preparation.
Less able students are given to make up sentences using the words above.
More able students should make up a story using those words.
High motivated students act out the story in three or four pupils. They have to be reminded that this group of learners should have a narrator.
Formative assessment. Students are informed how they are going to be assessed by the following criteria:
Language (Grammar and usage of new words)
Teacher nominates group of learners according to their performance. Learners give peer feedback such as: Well done! Great job, The best actors and actresses, The super English speakers and so on. Teacher praises learners’ performance and suggests an improvement.
They start performing their tasks. Each group or peers listen to their peers’ performance and assess each other according to the assessment criteria. appendix 1

Learners complete an evaluation of what they did during the lesson by circling one word in each statement:
I can understand: all / most of / some of the story in the video.
I can understand: all / most of / some of the story when I read it.
I can say: all / most of / some of the words in the role-play. Evaluation worksheet
Differentiation – how do you plan to give more support? How do you plan to challenge the more able learners? Assessment – how are you planning to check learners’ learning? Cross-curricular linksHealth and safety checkICT linksValues links
More support can be given at the start and in middle of lesson by providing less-able learners with story vocabulary in a word list so they can read examples of words seen or heard.
Learners who are less confident at making up dialogue, can be given copies of parts of the dialogue from the story to read aloud.
More-able learners can be encouraged to use the full range of language from the video when they practise the role-play. Monitor how much vocabulary learners can recall from images on the video without sound and then from video with sound.
Monitor learners as they reorder events from the story. Can they read and understand each event and can they sort them into chronological order? Notice any sentences which are difficult for learners to understand and adapt for a future lesson.
Monitor groups of learners as they agree on and practise dialogue for the role-play activity. Do they take turns to speak? Do they contribute appropriate language for the role-play?
When they perform true-false task they use ready-made answers in order to be able to check for themselves or each other.
Post-reading exercises with differentiated tasks are assessed by special assessment criteria displayed on the screen. Make sure they have shared their roles in the act out activity appropriately.
Learners should have sufficient space to feel comfortable while they are acting.
Let them understand by holding a discussion that animals have also intellect and instinct that are able to take care of themselves.
