we’ll speak about winter holidays and their traditions in Britain and Ukraine, and we’ll review and make up special questions.
T. What words do you associate with the word winter?
Stand up and say a sentence about winter and then you may sit down.
(Pupils get stripes of either of two colours.)
T. Now we have pupils with blue and white stripes so we have two teams. A “blue” team is going to write the reasons why people like winter and a “white” team is going to deal with the
reasons of their dislikes.
T. I need two pupils to come to the board and speak sentences one by one about winter and its weather until any of them has a sentence left to speak.
T. Meanwhile two pupils will prepare the dialogue. Imagine that one of you wants to go to the river to slide and another one will warn him / her about it.

What’s the Weather Like Today?
What’s the weather, what’s the weather,
What’s the weather like today?
Is it cold or is it sunny?
Can we go outside to play?
When it’s windy, when it’s windy,
We go outside, we fly our kite.
The kite goes up high in the sky
And we play until it’s night.
When it’s snowing, when it’s snowing,
We make a snowman in the snow.
We wear coats and play together
Until it’s time to go.
When it’s sunny, when it’s sunny,
We wear our hats and go outside.
We play together in the park,
And have a fun time on the slide.
What’s the weather, what’s the weather…
T. What’s the main sign of winter?
T. Listen to the text about snow and say what snow is and why it is important for nature.
Text for listening
Snow is ice shaped into tiny crystals. The snowflake is made up of many tiny ice crystals stuck together.
Snowflakes appear in the clouds. When a cloud is very cold, water vapour changes into ice crystals.
Each snowflake has a beautiful six-spoked shape which is usually symmetrical. No two are alike.
Ice is transparent. Snow is white because ice crystals reflect daylight. Daylight is white so snow is white too.
Snow is a blanket to save plants and animals from freezing temperature. Because snow keeps heat. Snow is a source of water supply in hot dry countries. Snow is used for fun.

T. Dears, I see that you need some rest. Look at me and repeat the movements.
(Students perform different movements andimitate winter phenomena.)
Snow is falling to the ground
Piling up in enormous mounds
School is cancelled for the days
Children run outside to play.
Snowballs are thrown in the air
No one has any care about school —
Only fun, because the day is a snowy one!!!
T. How do we make a special question? (Making a scheme) We are going to make a snowman from snowflakes. Take a snowflake and there are some words on it. Order these words, get a special question and answer it. Then stick a snowflake to any of the mounds on the blackboard.
