Based on the ideas of Mr Azevedo and his lovely website, I planned an activity to practice the topic “making predictions” with my P1 sts. I don´t know what happens, when I think of a simple and enjoyable story, I think of Pocoyo :). Here goes the stages and for the worksheet, just click here ->will-predictions-pocoyo-future .
Pocoyo: to assess the grammar topic “will” for predictions:
1- Read out loud the header to sts and tell them to make their predictions about how Mr Octopus will cheer them up.
2- Check the names of the characters, the words “bad mood”, “cheer up”, “feather”, “tickle”.
3- Ask Sts to share their predictions;
4- Play video once;
5- Sts in pairs check if their predictions were right.
Video session: Pocoyo!
Pocoyo and his friends are in a bad mood today. That´s so sad =( . But there is someone who can make them laugh: MR. OCTOPUS!
1- What will Mr octopus do to make Pocoyo laugh?
3- And Pato?
