libera interpretazione dal libro DO YOU WANT TO BE MY FRIEND di Eric Carle




This work consists of learning about “the feelings”.

This activity uses a story to for the following reasons:

  • children like stories

  • stories can be integrated into language learning - listening, singing and doing activities related

  • stories often include a lot of repetition that helps to make language memorable

  • stories contain chunks of language that children can remember and use

 We used the pc, the projector and the audio tape because we think it is a very good way to keep the children interested, and give them reason for taking part in the lesson. Also children learning difficulties with are involved because their attention is stimulated by sounds, music, images and animations. Moreover using native language cassettes teaches children the sounds and rhythm of English.
