5th Grade, Native English

We added some finishing touches to our mini-books, and then the children read their books to the whole class, and the others listened and asked any questions they had about that cstudent’s goals, wishes, or plans.
In the next session, I decided to create a more hands-on lesson for the topic of Music about which the children had learned in their grammar class. Therefore, we moved our class to the music room for two hours. We listened to and talked about different types of music, while I wrote some brief explanations about each type on the board and compared them with each other. The point was that the instrument type and aura changes for each music type (instrument, tone), as well as how it is played (rhythm), as well as what is sung (the lyrics). Then the children contributed to the music they liked by singing the klyrics, playing the music, etc. We also tried to use some of the expressions used in their book, such as “I am not much into … . I love the lyrics. I don’t like the vocals. It’s not very catchy…There’s a cool video for this song…etc.
In the next session, to follow our music topic, the children made different musical instruments from simple materials, while learning the names, structures, phrases, such as making a harmonica with two popsicle sticks, a bit of paper, rubber bands, and toothpicks, and making drums from cardboard tubes and balloons.
Finally, we played a game of String Game on the last day, while working on the sentences used in their grammar lesson about giving suggestions and guidance. Each child received a string and while I also used pictures and videos, I used normal phrases and sentences of tell then how best to move the string to get to the steps they want. To focus after tion in these phrases, I wrote them o the whiteboard at the beginning and told them to pay attention to these structures in my speech, such as
“It is better to …” “I suggest that you …” “let’s try doing it this way…” etc.
