And pay close attention to the single and plural forms of the nouns .

二、Analysis of the learners :
We are facing the 5 to 6-year-old little kids who just graduated from the kindergarten ,and they can not tell the difference between kindergarten and the primary school. sometimes they even don’t know how to behave in the class. So ,I think the most important thing for me to do is to attract their interests and make them love English and feel confident in this subject .so ,I will play some interesting games with them ,show them the funny cartoon movie and role the plays in the text or have a competation. we should not only focus on the language point itself ,but also set up the real circumstance where I can encourage them to express themselves better .What I try my best to do is to arouse the kids’ interests and protect their enthusiasm。
三、Analysis of the teaching methods
New English Lesson Standards> says that during the Foundation Education period ,the total goal for English lesson is to improve the pupils’ ability of comprehensive using language .It promotes task teaching structure .According to the little kids’ physical and psychological characteristics of keeping curios ,active and imitating and showing themselves .I adopt the ―task –research—construct ‖ teaching methods and organize the class to focus on the importance and solve the difficulties .I give the pupils an open and relaxed circumstance in which they can learn to observe ,think and discuss .during this procedure ,the pupils’ ability of thinking and using language is developed very well .
四、Analysis of the teaching procedures .
1. Warm up .
All the class sing English song ―Ten little Indian boys ‖ to arouse their interests and help them to step into English learning circumstance happily. 2. Review the fruit and the numbers those we learned in the first and the second part in this unit .
A.Watch a funny video.and answer the questions .(learn more fruit and practice more sentence patterns
eg: strawberry / watermelon/ pineapple /cherry) ask some questions .
What’s this ?
What colour is it ?
How many bananas are there?
Do you like eating bananas?
What is your favourite fruit? Encourage them to open their mouth and speak English as much as they can .
B.Play guessing game .to review the spelling of the words using the basic pronunciation knowledge. C.Play a game named―up and down ‖.emphasis on distinguishing the single and plural forms of the nouns . 3.Guide the pupils to the main teaching points .To comprehensive use the numbers and the fruit that is a needed in a fruit shop .Ask two volunteers to come tothe front and choose the right number cards and stick it beside the right fruit according to the other pupils’ instructions .The quicker one will be the winner . Eg: Six oranges ,please .
4.Time to practice for all the class .The pupils choose the right cards they have prepared and put them up above their heads when they hear the teacher’s instructions and give them to the teaching answering loudly: ―Here you are .’ 5. Watch a video ,understand what’s happening in the story ,（This part is important, reasonable and effective）and guide them to protect and make friends with the animals .Present the situation of a fruit shop .the teacher will act a shopkeeper and invite a better pupil to be the customer and finish all the buying steps .
Shopkeeper : Good morning . Customer : Good morning . Shopkeeper : Can I help you ? Customer : Yes ,six oranges ,please . Shopkeeper : Here you are . Customer : Thank you very much . Shopkeeper : You are welcome . 6.Consolidation and Practice Group work : Divide the class into eight groups and every group will be decorated into a fruit shop, ask one pupil to be the shopkeeper and the other members in this group will be the customers .Encourage them to buy and sell the fruit with what they learned in this part ,I design a real situation that is common in our daily life and the kids will not feel uncomfortable or unfamiliar with it, The teacher will go around the class and supply the help to the unable ones .In such a peace and pleasant situation they like to speak the dialogue they learned to express themselves .They can feel the success and become confident in speaking English .
7.Conclusion The teacher would lead the class to read the sentences on the board and ask some more difficult questions .Maybe the pupils can not understand them clearly ,but it doesn’t matter .we just give the pupils more information about the language and give them the better language circumstances that can help them in the future learning .
8.Homework Encourage the pupils to design a little fruit shop at home and teach their family the dialogue in the fruit shop .When they practice this , they should take photos and show the other pupils the next day . In this lesson , what I design (not only the presentation of the main teaching points ,but also the activities) attract the pupils interests .They learn and practice while playing . I think it’s really a good lesson of high quality.
