Dear boys and girls! Today you will meet really wonderful creatures who live in a large and unusual town called English Grammar. You may ask me where this town is situated. It is far, far away from here in the middle of the Kingdom of His Majesty English Language. So you understand it is rather difficult to find the way to this Kingdom. I consider only magic can help us. First of all, we have to find a very special thing hidden in our classroom.

  1.  WARMING-UP (4 MIN)

Let's play "Treasure Hunt". It's time to choose two brave treasure hunters.

Counting rhyme:

 One jewel, two jewels.

Three jewels, four,

Five jewels, six jewels,

Seven jevels more.

Look! There is an envelope on the windowsill! There is a message for our hunters inside. Let's read it.

Hunters read the message, follow the instructions and look for other envelopes.

The 1st message: "Look near the door". The 2nd message: "Well done!

Look under the teacher's desk". The 3rd message: "You are going very fast! Look between green books". The 4th message: "Great! Look behind the red chair". The 5th message: "You are clever! Look in the big bookcase". The last message is "You are great hunters! Now you can take the box. It's a magic one".


As you know, the town of English Grammar is big, and today we'll visit only one lane of it.

There are a few houses in this part of the town. Our magic box will help us to get to know the names of very important persons who live there.

The class is divided into 5 groups and each of them is given a task from "the magic box".

Group 1:

Hi! Guess my name!

I'm in cat, not in bat


I'm in bad, not in bed


I'm in pen, not in pet


Who am I?


Group 2:

A picture of a church— the 3rd letter          U

A picture of a library the 1st letter            L

A picture of a building— the 5th letter       D

Who am I?


Group 3:

Hello! My name is short. It's 629. Each number is a key of your mobile telephone.

My name is also the name of the 3rd spring month.

Who am I?



Group 4:

Hi! You have 4 pictures. Take the first letters of all the words and you

will guess my name!

The 1st letter of monkey

Now we know that the inhabitants of Modal Lane are Modal Verbs.


Dear children! Listen to the story which happened in Modal Lane on a fine spring day.


5 respectable gentlemen Mr Must, Mr Can, Mr Could, Mr May and Mr Should live in Modal Lane. They are very different. Mr Must is tall and strict, he is proud of himself and likes to give orders:

You must do it at once!

You must not forget grammar rules! Englishmen like to give their houses some names, and Mr Must's house is called Obligation. Mr Can is young, sporty and strong. He likes to help people and to say what they can or can't do:

He can swim like a fish.

She can sing like a bird.

I can't speak Italian.

Mr Can lives in a modern house called Ability.

Mr Could is Mr Can's brother, but he is much older. This gentleman is  short, round and kind. He likes to sit in his armchair and think of the past: I could jump like a kangaroo. But I couldn't dance well.

Sometimes he and the magic word.Please help people to ask for permission in a very polite way:-Could I have your pencil for a minute, please? Mr Could lives in an old house of great charm called Past Abilities. Mr May is gentle, merry and energetic. He opens any doors with his politeness: May I come in?

He lives in a nice house called Permission. Mr Should is very polite too and likes to help people by giving them advice:

-You should do morning exercises every day. You should eat fruit and vegetables. The name of his comfortable house is Advice.

All Modal Verbs like spring, and on a fine May afternoon Mr May invites his neighbors to have a cup of tea in his beautiful garden. The party goes well and Mr May does his best to please his guests, but that day Mr Must is in a very bad mood. At last he says:-I look at you and don't understand why people need you! Can, you are a boaster, you repeat time and again: "I can do this! I can do that!" You, Could, think only of the past, you are weak and old. May and Should, nowadays nobody needs your polite fuss! I am strong, all people do what I say! You are dull and boring, I am ashamed of such neighbors!

And Mr Must leaves the party with his nose up in the air.

Never mind! The weather is warm and fine, let's go to the seaside for a week or two. Maybe, our neighbor will understand his mistake and all will be well again.

So they pack their bags and go to the seaside. One by one all the inhabitants of the town get to know about the spoiled party and don't want to speak to Mr Must. And he stays all alone!



When you mail a letter

You can send it anywhere

On foot, by truck, by airplane.

The postman gets it there.

So write a letter to a friend,

Maybe, she'll write you

No matter what, you always know

The mail must go through.

Refrain (twice):

The mail must go through,

The mail must go through,

No matter if it rains or snows,

The mail must go through.

Some folks live in a city,

Some live in a little town.

Even if you live out on a farm

There's a postman making his rounds.

So mail someone a letter,

Even just a card will do.

You know it's nice when the postman

Has a letter in his sack for you.


 In Town

As you see, the town of English Grammar is quite unusual, but the road rules are the same as in our town. Look, there are some road signs and traffic lights in our magic box. Tell your friend what she should do or shouldn't do if she sees this or that sign. Of course, our friends Modal Verbs will be very helpful.

Teacher shows some road signs and traffic lights.Pupil work in pairs.

I can see a stop sign. You must stop.

It is a no-turn left sign. You shouldn't turn left.

It is a no-tum right sign. You can't turn right.

There is a no-entry sign. You can't go straight on.

It is a no-parking sign. You shouldn't park here.

Oh! The traffic light is red. You must stop.

Look! The traffic light is yellow. You should wait.

Oh, the traffic light is green. You can go.


Can You Tell Me the Way?

Many people go to visit different cities or towns and often find themselves in a difficult situation because they don't know how to get to a post office, a supermarket, a museum or a gallery. As a rule, they ask passersby or policemen for help. Imagine, you are a policeman who helps a tourist to find his/her way in your town. Don't forget to use modal verbs.Three groups of pupils make up dialogues and act them.


Tourist: Excuse me, sir.

Policeman: Yes? Can I help you?

Tourist: I want to go to the post office. Can you

tell me the way, please?

Policeman: Turn right. Take the first turning on

the left and go straight on.

Tourist: Is it far away?

Policeman: No, it's just round the corner. You can't

miss it.


Dear children! You have worked well today. You have visited just a small part of the large town of English Grammar and learned about the adventures of Modal Verbs. You will meet them again and they will help you to speak English better.

Now I want to give you some marks. Your home task for the next lesson is to choose one object in the town (a cinema, a library, a museum) and explain to a tourist how to get to it.
