Good morning, dear judges. I’m candidate number 2, applying for primary English teacher. My topic is “Special days in April”. Now, I will begin my class.
Good morning, boys and girls. How are you today? You feel great. I’m great, too. Thanks for asking. Please show me your fingers and let’s count and sing together. One little, two little, three little Indians. Four little, five little Indians. Six little, seven little, eight little Indians. Nine little, ten little Indians. Great! You are really good singers.
Well, after singing the song, here is an interesting video for you. Please watch it carefully and tell me the time and what do they do?

Do you know any festivals in April? Today, let's learn the Special days in April （转身写板书）
Before class, I divide you into 2 groups. You are banana group and you are orange group. （手指，转身板书）If you can answer my questions actively and correctly during the class, you can get a banana or an orange on the blackboard. Are you clear? Perfect!
Now, please look at the screen. What can you see? You said that you can see so many apples, they are red, but there is an apple, it looks a little bit different. It's green. We can say... The green one is special. /ɛ/, please read after me, /ɛ/、/ɛ/、special. Once again, that’s much better. （讲解单词, 写单词）
