What is this lesson?

What can you do? Can you comb your hair? Catch a ball? These are all things that are fun and easy for kids to do. I can do it!

The "Can You...?" sentence pattern is an extremely important pattern to know. Once students grasp the concept of the "Can You...?" sentence, they will be able to ask any question they want relating to ability. Once they master sentences like, "Can you ride a bike," they will be able to use the same concept to ask questions like, "Can you speak English? Can you pass the butter? Can you come to the baseball game?" The sentences in this lesson are the foundation that builds into something much bigger.

You already worked with this sentence pattern in the lessons When Do You Play? and Do You Play Music? on this DVD. This lesson expands on the practice you already got in those important lessons.

How do I teach this lesson?

The idea of this lesson is to communicate ability: "Can you" do something? Flashcards work well for teaching these sentences.

Once students are comfortable with the sentences on the flashcards, you can start switching things up a little bit. A really fun activity is the What Can You Do? Game. This simple game asks the main sentences in the lesson, and students have to respond if they can do it or not. It works kind of like musical chairs, and is a great game for five or more students.

You can also use the same "Can You" sentence to ask other questions. Can you sing? Can you ride a scooter? This helps to reinforce the idea that that these sentences are just patterns; you can use the pattern to make your own sentences!
