Pre-Reading Activity

  • Guessing game – Where is it? Who is this?
  • Why this name, do you think?
  • Draw your favourite place – let the other students see your drawing and let them guess where it is

Chorus-Reading of The Text
  • Let the students read the text ‘My Name‘ silently and underline the sentences or parts of sentences they liked the best.
  • You read the text and the students read their underlined parts together with you. This is a beautiful way to read the text. Sometimes you are the only one who reads, other times you are joined by one single voice and in other parts there is a whole choir reading.
  • The students may talk to each other about which sentences they underlined. Do they know why they chose the sentences they did? Was there something in particular that they liked?
