Ø practise words eg. Farm toys (house, a farmer, a tractor )to go with the animals ( horse, sheep, goat, pig, dog).
“Shout it out” game
All of the students sit down in a circle. Start by holding up each toy and eliciting, chorusing and passing the toy around (when passing make sure each student says the word for the toy as they pass it).
We put all of the toys in the magic bag and have everyone close their eyes. Pull out a toy and say “Open your eyes” – everyone must open their eyes and shout out the word for the toy that you are holding. We play this for all of the toys.
