Tell students that today they are going to talk about the love of learning.
Activate Background Knowledge
Introduce love of learning by asking students what motivates them to learn.
Review what the word “motivate” means. What sparks their interests? What are they most interested in learning?
Write a list of answers on the whiteboard.
Note: students may need to look up words on their phone if they lack the vocabulary word to express what motivates them to learn, or ways that they learn. As these words come up, make sure to go over what they mean as a class.
Activity 1: Speaking
Explain to the students they are going to think about what they already know by making inferences.
Choose one of the pictures below. As a class, talk about things they observe in the pictures i.e. what they know.
For example, you might say that in the first picture, a girl is sitting on a bench, or that her hair seems to be messy.
After brainstorming as a class, have students make inferences, or expand on inferences they already made.
Example: Why is the girl’s hair messy? Why is she sitting on the bench?
