Video Summary

In this lesson, Miss Lahoud's second-grade Art and Arabic students develop vocabulary through art, drawing pictures of vegetables they like and don't like, and presenting these to their classmates. Class begins with a "hello" song and a brief review of the weather and days of the week. After introducing the lesson goals, Miss Lahoud shows students pictures of vegetables and leads the class in naming them aloud. Next, she explains the day's activity, in which students will draw and color the vegetables they like in one bowl and the vegetables they don't like in another. After students finish their work, they discuss what they drew in their bowls in pairs, and then present their drawings to the rest of the class.
