cities, friends.
2. Play a happy face game. Ask everyone to stand up. Move around the class and if you touch a

learner on the shoulder, they have to make a very happy face and hold it until you have visited
every learner in the class. You could increase the challenge by asking everyone to begin with an
unhappy face and hold that expression until you visit them to make them happy.

Guided Experience (group working with the teacher)

1. Tell learners to look at the picture on Learner’s Book page 42–43 and the title of the poem, and predict
Small Group

what the poem is about. Elicit as many suggestions as possible.


2. Elicit from them what ‘kids’ means. Ask them if they know another word for kids (children).

3. Tell the class they are going to listen to the poem. While they listen, they should read in their books.
4. Play the poem a few times and encourage learners to say the verses as they listen.

5. Use the board to model adding un- to friendly, happy and helpful. Ask for volunteers to say a phrase
using the positive adjective. Model changing it to a negative phrase on the board, for example a happy
boy, an unhappy boy.

Independent Experience (small group activity)

Talk about the poem: Activity 1

1. Focus on the questions and discuss them with the class.

2. Before discussing questions 3 and 4, read the Language detective box.

3. Questions 3 and 4 are more open-ended and learners may not think either word applies, or perhaps both.
Encourage them to explain their answers, for example She’s happy thinking of all the children in the world
— but she is unhappy because she wants a best friend.

4. As an additional task, rehearse and perform a choral reading of the poem, with small groups or
individuals reading each line.

Activity Book: Activity 2

1. Distribute drawing materials and ask learners to draw a best friend for the kid in the poem.

2. If this task is completed on separate paper, it can be used to construct a class display surrounding the
