Lesson Plan Procedures and Tips
Although you can simply start this lesson up and teach it without much prep, here's a sample lesson plan you can use to have a blast in your class using just this lesson software. To add more to your lesson tho, I recommend downloading the provided flashcards and adding some flashcard games to the class. It's not necessary but it helps add even more fun to your class by getting students moving around more.
New Content Teaching
1. Lesson Introduction and Pre-Teaching
Start the lesson by using the new words section of the lesson software. You can reveal the parts of the face words one by one to your students or have them choose a picture to reveal in a more discovery based learning process.
When a face part picture has been revealed, press it to focus on that picture. Teach students the new word and navigate back to the new word screen. If possible, use TPR to help students reinforce the words. When returning to the new words introduction page, allow students to say all of the face part words that they have learned so far. After all 8 words have been learned, go to the Listen and Touch activity.
2. Parts of the face Listen and Touch (Practice Activity)
In this reinforcement activity, you say a part of the face word and a student should touch that picture on the board. When they touch it, they should say the name. Other students can touch their own face and say the word as well. Do this several times at a pace your students can handle.
If your students are capable, other students in the class can also call out fruit that the active student should touch and say.
3. Blast Off (Practice Activity)
Blast Off can be found in the Practice section of the software.
In Blast Off, touch a face part picture and it will start flashing. Say a yes or a no sentence or question about it that your students would understand. If the answer the question is YES, they jump. If it is NO, they sit down.
Here are some example sentences & questions you might use (depending on student level):
Is it a nose?
I have two eyes.
I have three eyes.
I have black hair.
I have two eyes. (In this case, students should listen for the correct number and face part).
To make the activity even more fun, you can rapidly ask questions and students can jump and sit pretty fast.
4. Even More Practice! (Optional)
At this point, you have a lot of different practice activities to choose from. Here are some suggestions:
Color a Clown (practice): Introduce the clown and describe it. "He has blue hair and a pink mouth." Students should listen and then color the face. Repeat if necessary until they color the clown completely. (Use if you've taught colors before).
Who Am I? (practice): You should describe one of the clowns using colors and parts of the face. Students should say the clown that you're describing by saying its corresponding number. You can press 'reset' to randomize the colors again. (Use if you've taught colors before).
Face Circling (practice): Talk about the animal shown and then tell your students a part to circle. You could also tell them a specific color to use. "Circle the fish's eyes red." Your language can differ depending on the language you've taught.
Flashcard Games: This can also a great time to play some flashcard games.
5. Lesson Presentation
This lesson talks about parts of the face in context. It uses animals previously learned but it's not necessary to have done that lesson to understand this presentation.
Some tips about lesson presentation:
Talk about the pictures first. "What do you see?" "What animal is it?" Guide students to talk about the pictures and use whatever related content you've learned in the past to talk about these pictures. Make sure to point out the animal's part that's discussed in this particular page.
If your students can read, guide your students together using your finger.
If students can't read, instruct them to listen as you do so. They can repeat after you. Do this a few times.
After reading, ask a follow up question such as "does it have?" "Does it have a big nose?" Make sure to point out the unique part of the animal and use it to help teach the adjective.
Repeat the above steps for all pages until you reach the final page.
Final Page: Students should talk about what they have. You may also ask questions to help them such as: "Do you have two eyes?" "Do you have blue eyes?" "Do you have a small nose?"
6. Games Games Games
Now that students are more familiar with the new content, let's play some games! You can navigate to the games section of the software and choose the games you think your students would enjoy. There are so many to choose from!

7. Wind Down and Review
Depending on the time left, it's time to wind down the lesson, review, and award points/rewards/etc. Here are a couple options you have:
Flashcard review: Hold up flashcards and have students shout the names. Encourage students to say touch the part of their face shown while they say "I have a /nose/".
Use the Review section of the software.
There you have it! Now your ESL students should be able to talk about their face with relative ease. If you've followed this plan, you should still have plenty of content left for an additional lesson using this lesson software.
If you have time to prepare a full lesson plan ahead of time, here are some final thoughts to make a fantastic lesson.
Download some face based worksheets from a website like www.eslprintables.com.
Add a face craft or other hands on activities. It can be a lot of fun to describe a funny face or alien creature that students have to draw.
