                       grammar. We are not afraid of making mistakes, because here, in this lab, we try

                       to get rid of them and learn to speak correct English. We are positive, we learn to

                       speak in turn and respect other opinion.

FREE TIME ACTIVITIES

  1.  Робота в групах по аргументуванню проблеми "Багатодітна сім'я: за і

     проти". Інтерактивний метод Займи свою позицію.

T: Now, close your eyes and imagine the family you would like to have in future (лунає класична музика 1-2 хв.). Who has seen himself in a large family? All of you will take your seats here (табличка FOR).  And now raise your hands all those who likes having a small family. You will give your arguments against large family and those seats are yours (табличка AGAINST). Use phrases I agree, I disagree, I think, In my opinion (табличка

 на дошці). The pupils who haven’t decided what position to take will stay at their places and listen to the arguments of both sides and after debates you’ll have to join one of the groups and explain the reason of your choice.

For

Against

  •  It’s never boring in a large family, you always have someone to play with.
  •  There is a spirit of cooperation.

              Everyone helps each other.  

               Elder children look after   

               younger ones.

  •  Parents don’t spoil their children.
  •  Children help their parents, the

               family does everything

               together.

  •  Big families are usually very

united and friendly.

  •  There is much noise in the house.
  •  Parents are tired of doing lots of laundry, washing up and other housework.
  •  You should have much food, shampoo, toothpaste and money.
  •  Younger children wear clothes of their elder brothers and sisters.
  •  Parents of big families have no time for their hobbies.
  •  In small families children have toys, sweets, fruit and vegetables to their hearts’ content.

 

3. Aктивізація навиків діалогічного мовлення у рольовій грі Ток-шоу Тато, мама, я -

Slide 2           families can clear the picture up. Now you are invited to the talk-show Father,

Slide 3           mother, me are – a superfamily. Meet Ian and Sue Povey with their two children

    Ann and Lisa. Their family is really large. You’ve got a great chance to search

    them about it. But don’t forget about the rules of our English lab and ask questions

    in turn. (Вчитель виконує роль ведучого програми.  До кожного учня, який

    підняв руку для запитання він підходить з мікрофоном).

  1.  How many children have you got?

         We’ve got 15 children.

  1.  Sue, is it difficult to be a mother of such a big family?

    Yes, it’s rather difficult, but interesting at the same time.

            Thirteen children live with us. Our daughter Caroline has her own family. They live

            in London and our eldest son Brian is a student at Oxford University.

  1.  How many children in the family go to school?

            Nine.

  1.  Do you live far from the school your children study at?

              them home.

  1.  Ian, where do you work?

              I am an engineer at a power station.

               plates, cups, spoons and forks three times a day.

  1.  Do you help your children with their homework?

               Of course, we do. They are intelligent. I should say they study hard.

Much. We buy 7 litres of milk, 5 kilogrammes of vegetables and fruit a day.

  1.  Children, do your brothers and sisters help you?

                 Ann: I should say we are very friendly. We always help our mum and each other.

                          Elder children look after little ones.

  1.  Ian, would you like to have more children?

                 Yes, it’s very noisy in the house, but it is never boring in this family either.

    T: We can call Sue a supermum. By the way, have you ever thought of you as future

         mums and dads? Just fancy you’ll do that now. Girls will represent us a super mum

         and tell about her appearance and household duties. Boys will do the same task, but

         they will produce the image of super dad. Your performance can be in a form of a TV

         programme, a film, a mime or a song. You are given one minute for preparation.

5. Активізація навиків монологічного мовлення з темиМоя мама/ мій тато”.

T: Well, your performance was perfect. You’ve got the idea. Children, who can prove that you’ve got a super mum or dad? Who can prove that?

P1: I’d like to tell you about my mum. Her name is Svitlana. She is 34. She’s got two nice children – my sister and

      me.

Our mum is not tall. Her hair is shoulder-long. She has got beautiful grey eyes. Her eyelashes are thick and  

      curvy and her eyebrows are thin. She has got rosy thin lips. My mum’s smile is charming. She has got short

      wrinkles near her eyes and many moles.

              My dear mum likes reading a lot, but frankly speaking she’s got no time for her hobby. She also cooks tasty

       dishes.

              My mum is very calm, loving and good-looking. She never punishes us and tells that we are the best

        children in the world. We think she is the best mother in the world.

P2: I’ve got a super dad. His name is Yuri. He is 35. I think my father is a good-looking man. He’s tall and strong.

      He has got an attractive face. His eyes are brown. He has got a beard and a moustache. His nose is straight and

      small. My father likes wearing sun glasses. My classmates think he dresses in style. My dad loves his family very

      much. He’s a railway worker. He works hard to earn money, but he always has time to help mum with the

       housework. He often goes shopping and fixes thins in the house. At weekends daddy organizes picnics for the

       family. He can cook delicious shish-kebab.

     My father is fond of music. He likes playing the guitar and singing. He is also interested in photography.

        But my dad can’t stand playing computer games and watching foolish programmes on TV. I love my daddy

        very much.

   T: No, no, no, I don’t believe you do all the things to help your parents. There’s only one way

       to check if you tell the truth. Show us what you can do with the things on the table

       while singing the song This is the way (На стільці або невеликому столику та біля нього  

       знаходяться тарілка, миска, ложка, ніж, ганчірка, віник, банан, картоплина, помідор,  

       шматок сиру, лимон і т.д.) .

                                This is the way I sweep the floor

                                 Every day in the morning.

                                 This is the way I peel potato

                                  I peel potato, I peel potato

                                  This is the way I peel potato

                                  When I help my mother .

           (Учні беруть будь-який з предметів на вибір, співають куплет, імітуючи свої дії)

 

    T: That's just what I was looking for. You’ve proved that you are super children.

8. Презентація проектів з теми Приготування їжі”.

 Slide 5    T: I have noticed you can cook without mother’s help. Now, let’s sit in comfort and

                    watch a TV programme “Eat at home” with your classmate Ann D. She agreed to

                    share the secrets of making a salad Olivier….

   Ann D.: Slide 6   This is me in my kitchen. My mum is a teacher. She likes teaching very  

                                much. She is sually busy at work. So, I often help her to cook meals when

                                she comes home from work. I can make the salad Olivier without my mum’s

                                help.

      Slide 7   To make it I take some potatoes, some carrots, some sausage, some eggs,

                                  some tinned cucumbers and peas, some mayonnaise for dressing.

     Slide 8    First, I wash the vegetables and eggs.

                 Slide 9    I put them into the pot and pour some water there.

                 Slide 10  After that I boil them and add some salt to taste.

                 Slide 11  When they are ready I skin the boiled carrots, potatoes and shell boiled eggs.

                 Slide 12  Then I chop the vegetables, eggs, sausage and tinned cucumbers.

                 Slide 13   I put them into a bowl and add tinned peas.

                 Slide 14  After that I dress the salad with mayonnaise and mix the ingredients.

                 Slide 15   I sometimes garnish the salad with flowers made of carrot and parsley. The

                                 salad Olivier is ready. It’s very delicious.

   T: Thank you , Ann, for such a marvelous presentation.

        Slide 16        “Making tea is not a problem”, - says Max T.  Meet Max with his recipe.

          Slide 17        To make a cup of good tea I take some sugar, a bag of Lipton tea and some

                                water.

           Slides 18,19  I fill the electric kettle with cold water and boil it.

           Slide 20         I put a tea bag into a cup.

           Slide 21         Then I pour hot boiled water and let it brew for a minute.

           Slide 22         I add some sugar, milk, lemon or mint to taste.

           Slide 23         The tea is ready. Enjoy it!

  T: Ann and Max did their best. And I hope you’ll surprise your mothers by practicing in

   making this salad and tea at home.
