How to teach this lesson

 It is important to note that many students will already have some knowledge of pets and animals. So at the beginning of the lesson, make sure to personalize the lesson and immediately ask about the student’s pets, or relatives’ and friends’ pets. In addition to personalizing the lesson, you are required to prompt students and give examples as needed. Finally, be sure to converse with the student and give them opportunities to read. In any case, it’s always important to correct your students but constructively and encouragingly.
