2.en.42 If you were…, I would be… Sing along with conditional clauses

NOD YOUR HEAD, honey bee, flower, podbrideswayoceanwood,firenodwink, tree, moat, castle, rug, seed

If you were a seed, I’d be a pod

Well, by now you must know pretty well what the word seed means, probably you have learnt about them in Science lessons , but I’m not so sure you all know the meaning of “pod” even though some of you have got an I pod.

Let’s see if images help you guess the hidden words. We are going to listen to a song where all these words appear. In the song, there is a repeated  conditional structure

If I/you  was/were…  a…, You/I’d be a…

First let’s sing and guess the words, then, we’ll talk about grammar.

The song is from a film “Juno” and it is a love song. I hope you like it.

Look at the images and see if you match them with the words.Can you pair them?
