Phase 1A: Lesson 8 (English)
Giving something to an animal, person, or thing.
Curriculum created by Greg and Angela Thompson
Session 8 at-a-Glance
Learning Grammar using Familiar Words
We want to learn to express the idea of giving objects TO someone. Of course, we use the activity to strengthen old vocabulary--animals, words for family members, and pronouns.
It is important to use old vocabulary for another reason. By using familiar vocabulary, everything the GP hears will be relatively easy to understand, except for the details that indicate who is the recipient (and the two new actions). This is another case of learning grammar without necessarily thinking of it as grammar, but rather thinking of it as the way to express a concrete meaning. A basic principle in activities that introduce aspects of grammar is to use vocabulary that is familiar so that the only new thing is the grammar form or pattern.
Bringing people together through language, culture, and compassion is my calling!
