As soon as the students enter the classroom, they will be given a small piece of paper and a pencil. The teacher will tell them to write down one word that describes their current mood. After a few minutes, the students will put their folded papers in a decorated box on the teacher's desk.

The teacher will then randomly select a paper from the box and read the word aloud. The students will try to guess the classmate who wrote the word while the teacher gives clues based on their knowledge of their students.


After revealing the author of the word, the teacher will then start a discussion about the written word and how words can be used to express emotions, thoughts, and ideas. The teacher will ask the students to share their favorite book and why they like it.

The teacher will summarize the students' ideas and start a brief introduction to the different forms of literature such as fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, and others.


The teacher will then instruct the students to get their English textbooks where they will delve deeper into the subject. Before ending the session, the teacher will ask the students to take another piece of paper to write down any questions that they may have about the lesson.

These questions will be collected by the teacher, and it will be used as a guide for the teacher on how the lesson should go or when there is a need for the teacher to clarify some points. The teacher will also encourage the students to read more books to expand their vocabulary, improve their writing, and critical thinking skills.
