Put students in pairs and encourage them to talk about their drawings by asking one another What color is this? Walk around the room and listen to students as they work. 4. Draw pictures of three large crayons. Color one red, one green, and one blue. Attach these on a bulletin board as in the picture. Add a large piece of poster paper under the crayons. 5. Invite students to present their drawings to the class by saying It s a (pencil). It s (green). Then have them stick their drawings to the poster paper under the appropriate color. Enrichment Make color books. Have students make books by stapling three pieces of paper together. At the top of each page they should make a red, green, or blue circle and, if they can, write red, green, or blue in the appropriate color. Then have them draw pictures on the rest of the page of things that are the same color. Count. Review the numbers 1 10 by counting the items in each color group with the students. Have students make number cards by writing these numbers on individual cards. Change the number of drawings in each column by taking away one or two drawings. Then say a color, model counting the items in that column, and ask students with that number card to hold it up and say (Five)(red)! Color Bingo. Review the colors. Give each student a bingo card (a paper divided into a 9-square grid). Have students color each square red, green, or blue. They should not color a whole row or column the same color. Use paper clips as markers. In a bag, place blue, green, and red color cards. Invite a student to pick a card and say It s (red). The rest of the class puts a marker on a square of that color on their card. The first student to get three markers in a row horizontally or vertically wins the game. T11

25 Values Work Hard Color. Listen. Write. Read. Speak. Copy: I work hard in school. 12 Character education

26 Application Objectives to talk about working hard in school to become aware of class participation through listening, speaking, reading, and writing to copy sentences to color Vocabulary nouns: book, chair, desk, pencil, school, student, teacher pronoun: I verbs: listen, read, speak, work, write adverb: hard Materials crayons or markers Get Ready Alphabet words. Write the alphabet in a line on the board. Put students in small groups. Challenge them to list words (colors, school supplies, and so on) that begin with each letter of the alphabet. Set a time limit and have them list as many as they can. The group with the longest list wins. Values: Work Hard Color. 1. As you work through the page, encourage students to apply the language they ve learned in this unit. To begin, however, you might want to have a discussion in your native language. Ask students what working hard means. Is it important to work hard? Why? Where do children work hard? Where do adults work hard? What are some examples of working hard in school? 2. Draw students attention to page 12. Ask them to talk about the pictures using any English they know. If necessary, provide words they need in English. Then read the words aloud and have students repeat after you. Point to the pictures to clarify meaning or act out listening, speaking, reading, and writing. 3. Have students color in the pictures. Circulate and ask individual students questions such as What color is it? and so on. Copy: I work hard in school. 4. Read aloud the sentence at the bottom of the page: I work hard in school. If necessary, clarify meaning. Read the sentence and have students repeat it after you. Direct students to copy the sentence on the line. 5. You may want to extend your students writing practice in paragraph form. On paper, have them indent and copy the sentence I work hard in school as the first sentence of the paragraph. Then have them write detail sentences: I listen. I speak. I read. I write. Students can conclude with I m a good student. The social-emotional intelligence connection. Two elements of social-emotional intelligence can be focused on in relation to working hard. (1) Selfawareness. Encourage students to think about the kind of student they are. Are they good listeners? Do they answer the teacher in class or try to avoid it? Do they do their reading and writing tasks? (2) Self-management. Encourage students to think of ways they can control their behaviors in class. What can they do to work harder and be better students? Family connection. Have students ask their families how they work hard and why it is important. Students report back to the class. Unit 1 T12

Say Yes or No and allow the student to remove the blindfold when he or she has correctly guessed the item. 3. Distribute bags and blindfolds to partners or small groups. Students should follow the model on the page as they play. Make sure partners switch roles so that everyone says both parts of the dialogue. 4. As students play the game, walk around the room and monitor their language. Note errors to review after the game is finished. Make a number line. Use the cutouts on page Draw students attention to the picture at the bottom of the page. Explain that the boys have made a number line to show the numbers from one to ten in order. 2.

Give each pair or small group a long strip of paper and a crayon or marker. Have students write numbers from 1 10 in order on the paper, then cut out the groups of stars, count each group aloud, and glue it under the correct number. 3.
