Communication Box


to owe something to oneself

It happens to the best of us.


to sign up for something


to make an informed decision

It’s almost a classic.


to support self-expression

…for instance.


to give encouragement


clay model

to have the right to do something

Got it!

I. Conversation Warm-up

Look at the photos and choose three activities for your after-school activity plan. Account for your choice.

Example: I will choose climbing because it is less difficult than running.

II. Pronunciation Warm-up

Read and practise the sounds /w/ and /η/. Say what you do for relaxation.

The After-school Activity Plan Chant

- Where are you going?

Where are you going?

What’s your destination?

- I’m walking out of town

for some relaxation.

That’ll be nice.

What’s on your agenda?

- I’ll go riding, and biking,

and swinging, and climbing.

Do you think you can?

Are you sure you are able?

- Of course, I can.

I work out, I’m in shape.

I’ll do even more.

III. Grammar Smart

Look and recall!

If you want to say what you will do and under what condition, use the First Conditional.

Example: If I want to lose weight, I'ІІ go biking every other day.

The First Conditional consists of two parts (clauses): the main clause and the if-clause.

Example: If I want to stay active after school, I’ll go biking every other day. _____ (if - clause) ____ (main clause)

Use the Future Simple (will+go) in the main clause and the Present Simple in the if - clause (want).

You can make either part of a sentence negative:

If I don’t want to stay active after school, I won’t go biking that often.

a) Team up and play a grammar loop game.


If I have more free time, I’ll go jogging after classes.

If you go jogging after classes, you will get stronger and stronger.

If you get stronger, you’ll defend yourself well.

That’s great. I will go jogging after classes.

b) Make up as many sentences about after-school activity plans as you can. Use the substitution table.


walk thirty minutes a day,


stop the



exercises regularly,


stay healthy;



do yoga,



relax well; be in shape;

my friend

breathe freely,

my friend


feel great;

my classmates

feels pain, go for a jog, feel tired,

my classmates

lose weight; have a rest.

Example: If you walk thirty minutes a day, you will stay healthy.

2. Read and remember.

Advice: should or must?

• If you think something is a good or bad idea for staying active after school, use should + do/be/have etc.:

Example: There should always be time for a child to have the right to choose their own activities.

• If you think something is a bad idea for staying active after school, use shouldn’t+ do/be/have etc.:

Example: You shouldn’t start physical activities without warming up.

• If you want to ask for advice, use should in questions:

Example: Should I sign up for yoga?

• If you want to give strong advice, use must+do/be/ have, etc.:

Example: You must sign up for clay modelling - it’s so creative!

Don’t forget!

Should is often used with I (don’t) think and do you think:

Example: I don’t think you should sign up for leisure activities - they are not active enough.

a) Let’s play a grammar advice-giving game using these word chains.

Example: drama - new

A: Should I sign up for drama?

B: I think you should. You must try something new.

1. soccer - enduring

2. yoga - flexible

3. arts - creative

4. climbing - strong

5. puzzles - smart

6. project - useful

b) Fill in should or shouldn’t.

Example: We should stay active after school.

1. … I join this music band?

2. You … make an informed decision.

3. Children … be given encouragement.

4. Teachers … choose activities for us.

5. I think you … warm up before physical activities.

6. … we have the right to express ourselves in healthy ways?

IV. Word Smart

1. Study the words and words combinations and say: a) how you can develop yourself after classes;

participate in a project;

sign up for creative art activities;

play soccer to develop endurance;

do yoga to develop flexibility;

offer strength activities.

Example: I can participate in a group project.

b) How you can choose an activity:

to owe something to oneself;

to make an informed decision;

to have the right to do something;

to express oneself.

Example: I owe it to myself to do something I love.

2. Interview your classmates and find out:

• how they develop themselves after classes;

• what opportunities they have to stay active after school;

• how they choose activities for themselves.

Tell your classmates about your findings.

Example: A: How do you develop yourselves after classes?

B: I play soccer to develop endurance.

C: I participate in a group project.

A: I have found out that Bob plays soccer to develop endurance and Helen participates in a group project.

At Home: Make a list of opportunities you have to stay active after school and tick off your first important priority. Account for your choice in writing.

V. Time to Read

1. Read the information about types of after-school activities and say how they support your development.

What after-school activity should you join this year?

After a long day at school, you owe it to yourself to do something you love. What type of activities will you sign up for this fall - creative art, leisure or physical activities? Read the information from “On After School” to make an informed decision.

Creative Art Activities

Creative art activities are a fabulous way to support self-expression and creativity in children. Kids will experience self-confidence and relationship development while participating in individual projects such as clay models or group projects such as murals, that is, painting on the wall. Children should be given encouragement throughout the activity. The children art can be displayed for parents and participants to see.

Leisure Activities

Leisure activities are free-play opportunities. This time can be used for board games, reading, puzzles and passive games. These activities will support children’s emotional, cognitive and social development. A child will experience a lot of scheduled activities throughout their school day, so there should always be time for a child to have the right to choose their own activities. Leisure activities will allow children to express themselves in healthy and fun ways.

Physical Activities

A physical activity gets children moving and engaged in active games. There are three categories a physical activity falls under: endurance, flexibility and strength. An endurance activity for children can be soccer. Yoga is an example of a flexibility activity that can be done with children. Many options in outdoor play parks offer strength activities, such as climbing and swinging. It is important for all individuals to warm up before physical activities.
