Motivator: Sing and explain the song "Apples, peaches" (in the tune of "Tell me when your birthday comes")

"Apples, peaches, pears and plums,

oranges, bananas, here we come.

Grapefruits, mangos and a guava,

Raspberries, blueberries and papaya."

Procedure9 l.jpg

  • Show the student flashcards of various fruit.

  • Say, for example, “an apple is a fruit, an orange is a fruit.”

  • Have students repeat after you.

  • Hand out the “food cards.”

  • Students now go around the classroom, and must find and list in their notebooks the names of five fruit with their Hebrew translations and/or pictures.

Anticipated Problems and Solutions

  • 30 Students walking around a cramped room can be a problem.

  • The students must first be told that they must only walk quietly.

  • Have a cue for the students to stop moving and listen.

Reflection of lesson 1 l.jpg
Reflection of lesson 1

  • It was slightly difficult to control the students moving around the room.

  • Students also yelled across the room telling their friends who had the fruit cards.

  • Most, however, were more familiar with the vocabulary at the end of the lesson.

  • Next time, I disallowed any talking higher than a whisper.

General reflection l.jpg
General Reflection

  • I thought that the project was a good way to introducing the children to expressing their feelings and their own likes and dislikes as well as the likes and dislikes of others.

  • The presentation portion was less than a smashing success ( despite a small listening task)……

  • but the children enjoyed the songs and the vocabulary of many of the students was greatly increased by the end of the unit.

  • I also found that the confidence level, in terms of speaking in English, was increased for some of

    the students.

I think, while it does not seem that this project involved a large amount of risk-taking, I thought that a substitute teacher getting the students away from their textbooks was risk-taking enough (the teacher I replaced temporarily only used the textbooks in the large classes in Rosh Ha’Ayin).
