Rasul Gamzatov - The Storks + Participle I (A Poem devoted to WWII soldiers)

Sonn 2017-05-09 17:44:18

This poem is well-known in Russia. The song is sung every year when we commemorate the soldiers. Initially it was devoted to the soldiers who died during World War II. I think every country has a special day for commemorating its warriors and soldiers who defended the country. For example, Remembrance Day.

If you live in a Russian-speaking country I think your students may be interested in working with the English version. You can use it either on the Defender's Day or on the Victory Day.

A British musician Marc Almond sang this song in English. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq-U6InUCLM

The task for students is to put the words in brackets into Participle I. There is an addidional text. A teacher can either tell this information to the students or let the students work with the text.

The present printable, downloadable handout is intended for at Intermediate (B1) level. It is aimed at revising Participles: Present participle (e.g. DOING) in English, and is useful for improving your students' Spelling skills. It is focused on the topic and words of Memories.
