Title The Frog Prince Year Year 4 Subject English Topic Opposites

Author/s Jeannette Cardona Duration 45 ­ 60 mins.

Instructional Objectives This lesson will help the children consolidate their concept of opposites. They will have already dealt with the topic during their previous school years, but this year we will go into some more detail and stress is put on the variety of vocabulary. This implies that the children will learn an amount of new vocabulary. They will also see that some words may have different meanings and thus the same words put into different contexts would have different opposites. Educational Objectives The children will work in pairs on the computers, so they will get the opportunity of exercising their communication skills in order to agree and decide what they should do. The activity away from the computer is individually based, but the children will be able to discuss their work within their group and children of lower abilities will be helped when in difficulty. ICT Objectives Children will make use of the following Kid Pix tools to complete the variety of on-screen activities: alphabet tool, paint can tool, typewriter tool.

Development Step 1 1. When the story is over, the children will be asked if they noticed anything about the adjectives in the story. Then the next two slides will show all these adjectives together for the children to understand that these words are corresponding opposites. 2. The next few slides give more examples with pictures to illustrate the opposites. 3. At the end of the presentation, the children are asked to think of more opposites and jot them down on the board. 4. Then all the children will be given the Opposites handout (Handout.PDS) for reference (to be used later in follow-up). 5. There will be a thorough reading through the list, with explanation of the meaning of selected words.
