Here is an introductory ppt for Listen and Speak 1

It includes a link to The Elephant Song.
I have the students listen and then tell me which 10 animals they heard. (you can click the circles to make them appear)

There is a pororo game as well. Open the adobe file: pororo
play the board game or hangman.

This is a mixture from other people's lessons.
First the video that annekat posted. Then "What is the animal doing" using pictures from worth 1000 words. Then students say the 2 animals in the animal mash up. Including what parts are from what animal. Then they create their own mash up. I have them write it first. Then they share it with their partners, then I call on a few to share with the whole class.

I made this game for the 1st part of the lesson:

Using this expression
Q: What's your favorite (A) _____?
A: My favorite (A) _____ is (B) _____.


*this is supposed to be a warm up activity right before using the 'favorites expression' portion*

1. I split the class into 5 teams.
2. Each team receives a specific topic: Food, Color, Animal, Sports, School Subjects
3. The teams then have 4-5 minutes (depending on their level) to compile a list of these topics
4. After the time is up, I ask one member from each team to come up to the front and they have 45 seconds-1 minute (choose according to their levels) to write their list down on the board. 
5. The list with the most items AND correct spelling is the winner.

1. Using the same topics they used to compile their lists, number the topics 1-5
2. Then, number each student in the the groups from 1-5
3.  When you call that child's number they'll come up to the front, and make a line parallel to the board, with the kids facing the board.
4. When the teacher say, "What's your favorite ____?" the kids will race to the board and answer in a complete sentence: "my favorite ____ is ____.
5. The 1st one finished will get a point.

The kids really liked this activity and they became hyper competitive, even the lower level classes that don't like to participate.  Also this gave more opportunities to the students that don't like to speak out as much.  There are no worksheets to prepare, just using the board. 

**Instead of numbering the topics you can also just make a sheet with the topics, cut out the topics and give one each to the students, it's a little more preparation, but there's also less explaining**

My students loved the elephant song. For my first graders this semester I've moved away from powerpoints and focused more on the book -- as there is more material in this one than the last one, as well as using flashcards.

For lesson 3B I run through the set of cards and stick them on the board (they're magnetized). Then I do the book work. I've made a set of printable cards that can either be used for pictionary or charades. These cards have a picture and the name of the animal. I did this because when I previously used strips of paper with the animal written on it the students would look at the posted flashcard photo and give away whatever animal they would be acting out.

Also, here is my focus on sounds with a song link that (finally) matches phonetically and thematically to the lesson!

This is my lesson to cover "Play with Grammar" on page 50. The lesson is practice using "Do" and its forms.

Part 1
Explain grammar. I used THIS VIDEO for inspiration.
Ask S's to complete the table (with which subjects to use where) on their paper as you make yours on the board.

Provide examples and ask students how to respond.

Part 2
Check S's understanding of the ways "Do" changes with questions. S's should work alone.
Check correct responses together and go back over grammar if their are any difficulties understanding.

Part 3
S's may work with a partner to provide a question and answer based on the pictures given on the worksheet.
Go over some answers together.

Part 4
Four Corners game.
Give students a question: "What food do you like? Do you like pizza, do you like 불고기, do you like pasta, or do you like "떡볶이?" Point to corners of the classroom when asking the question. Students should move to the corner corresponding to their preference.

Still in corners. ask S's to make a sentence about one of the S's' choice. For example, ask, "Tell me something about 은비." Students can try to respond with, "She doesn't like pizza. / She doesn't like pasta." etc etc.

Give another question, allow students to move to different corners, and ask the class to tell you about another student.

Repeat as many times as you would like.

This is a complete lesson for Listen & Speak 1.

I re-made a PPT that I had used last year for this chapter.  It basically covers favorites, using a variety of activities.  A big thanks goes out to miscreantinblack, who created the fantastic Free Point Shoot Out game that my first graders went nuts over.  See the link posted above by annekat.

In the attachments are a Lesson Plan, PPT Presentation, Favorite Shootout, and the Listen & Speak 1 audio files.  Be sure to save the audio files in the same directory as the PPT and everything should work fine.  The PPT is pretty self-explanatory, although I have added comments and instructions on several slides.  Be aware there may be personal references or images in my PPTs, so check it out before using it in class.  More information available in the lesson plan and PPT comments.

Good luck!

Here is a complete lesson for Listen & Speak 2.

In the attachments are a Lesson Plan, PPT Presentation, and the audio files for Listen & Speak 2 and a separate dialog I recorded myself.  I recommend downloading the audio zip file.  Be sure to place the audio files in the same directory as the PPT and everything should work fine.

For the Animal Pictionary mentioned in the LP and PPT, thanks goes to aklimkewicz for designing the animal flash cards.  Get the cards at:

Good luck!

Here's my review worksheet for lesson 3. Maybe someone can use this next year. There's a vocabulary list (English/Korean) in the back of the book for each lesson; I use the list to make the word search and crossword.

I just want to say Pjblake, your lessons are awesome. I've been pretty much using your lessons with tweaks here and  there. Thanks!

Here is my PPT for M1 L3 for Listen & Speak 1-2 and Bring Together. Unfortunately I had to rush and finish all three parts in one class so I don't have many acivities planned that go along with this lesson. Thanks again to you awesome users who contribute your lesson materials!


Banana, Banana PPT Game
For this game, allow all the students some time to memorize all the phrases in the list, then send 1 student (or 2 if you have a large class) out of the room at a time and show the rest of the class which phrase is removed. The student(s) come back in the classroom and must try to remember the missing phrase. You can reward the students that remember. I used key expressions from the first 3 lessons of the textbook. Idea found on Dave's ESL Cafe.
