  1. Хороший конспект на збагачення лексичного матеріалу. Корисні вправи на розвиток здібностей учнів висловлювати свою власну точку зору, гарні завдання на розвиток читання. Дякую за корисну публікацію

  2. За структурою урок чіткий та грамотний. Вчитель пропонує різного виду завдання на закріплення вивченою лексики з теми “Вільний час”. Можна додати завдання більш інноваційного типу – створення колажу, спільного, групового чи індивідуального з подальшою його презентацією на уроці. Наприклад, як я проводжу вільний час? і так далі. Дітям це подобається, додає практичност до уроку, показує значимість вивчених слів, вводить їх в активний словник. + є змагальний підхід. Працюйте і отримуйте задоволення.
