Present names of the animals and spelling of them. Lead them to read and try to remember the spelling.
Ask them: What kind of animal do you like best? And why?
1) Play a guessing game. I prepare descriptions of some animals. After I show them, the fewer sentences they need, the higher marks they can get.
2) After guessing each animal, ask some questions about this animal and tell them the appearances and characters of animals at the same time.
3) Finish Part B on page 93.
Some extra exercise: provide them with some idioms about dogs and let them give out the Chinese meaning.
