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 fruit words one by one to your students or have them choose a picture to reveal in a more discovery based learning process.
When a fruit 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 fruit words that they have learned so far. After all 8 words have been learned, go to the Listen and Touch activity.
2. Fruit Listen and Touch (Practice Activity)
In this reinforcement activity, you say a fruit word and a student should touch that picture on the board. When they touch it, they should say the fruit. 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 fruit picture and it will start flashing. Say a yes or a no sentence or question about the fruit 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 strawberry?
It is a lemon.
It is yellow.
It is not a banana.
I like strawberries. (In this case, students that like strawberries can stand and the ones that don't can sit).
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:
Fruit Coloring (practice): Use this activity if you have taught colors previously. Students should color the fruits. They can color the fruits the actual colors they are OR you can say a fruit and a color and they do it.
Likes (practice): If your students have already learned the family and animals from the previous lessons, you can use this activity. Say an animal or family member and say what fruit he or she likes and dislikes. Students should match the pictures with what you say. Example: "The turtle likes melons. It doesn't like lemons."
Match All (practice): Use this if you've taught family members.. Say a family member and what fruit that family member likes. Students should drag the fruit to the blank spot under the family member. Do this for all of the fruits and family members.
Flashcard Games: This can also a great time to play some flashcard games.
5. Lesson Presentation
This lesson talks about fruit in context. It shows different animals eating the fruits. It also features pronoun practice with he, she, and it.
Some tips about lesson presentation:
Talk about the pictures first. "What do you see?" "What animal is it?" "What is it eating?" "What does it like to eat?" Guide students to talk about the pictures and use whatever related content you've learned in the past to talk about these pictures.
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 "What animal is it?" "What does the bird like to eat?" "Do you like to eat bananas?"
Repeat the above steps for all pages until you reach the final page.
Final Page: Students should talk about what fruit they like to eat.
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 "I like to eat bananas", "I like bananas", "I don't like bananas". They should say whatever is appropriate for their level.
Use the Review section of the software. Touch a picture and talk about it using the same questions.
There you have it! A delicious fruits ESL lesson plan for elementary and kindergarten students. 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 fruit based worksheets from a website like www.eslprintables.com.
Add a fruit craft or other hands on activities. Students would love to make a fruit salad!
