Unless the kids in your class are really tiny, they probably already know from 1 to 10 so go over these quickly and then concentrate on numbers from 11 to Repeat the numbers together and sing along with the counting song linked above or your favorite counting song. Play a counting game: Sit Down! I love Sit Down! Very simply, the kids are in a circle and start counting from 1 to 20, one at a time. Whoever says 20 has to sit down and this goes on until only one child is left and wins the game.
To make it harder, speed up the counting on each round. Make sure to make the children count objects such as magic beans and leaves on the giant beanstalk and introduce vocabulary for planting and growing. Speaking Activity: What do beans need to grow? On the board, you can now make a list with pictures of what you will need to grow beans. You can adapt the song The Farmer Plants the Seeds linked above with your own vocabulary.
The bean needs the sun, the bean needs the sun, hey ho for it to grow, the bean needs the sun. First of all, we need to count all our beans. Give different amounts to each child and let them count them. Then get them to ask their companions how many beans they have. Then, give each child 1 jam jar, two beans and some damp cotton wool and show them how to plant their beans in the jar.
Ask them to remind you what the bean needs to grow. Drawing Activity: Make a care label for the magic bean plant To finish off the lesson plan, give the kids some paper. Ask them to draw everything that the plant will need to grow. While doing this, get them to repeat the vocabulary and label their picture for them. End with your Goodbye routine and count from 1 to 20 again.
Give each child their jar with their magic bean and their care label to take home. Remind parents that the bean will need a sunny spot and some water to grow. To stay up to date with new lesson plans and teaching ideas, you can follow the GoogooEnglish Facebook page.

Jack and the Beanstalk Old English Fairy Tale - version written and illustrated by Leanne Guenther Once upon a time, there lived a widow woman and her son, Jack, on their small farm in the country. Every day, Jack would help his mother with the chores - chopping the wood, weeding the garden and milking the cow. But despite all their hard work, Jack and his mother were very poor with barely enough money to keep themselves fed. We must sell our cow, Old Bess, and with the money buy enough seed to plant a good crop. One, two, three!
