Verb WAS/WERE with Winnie the Pooh

Students love cartoons! And we can use cartoon's characters to present or practise grammar.
Today my worksheet presents verb WAS/WERE in different types of sentences: positive, negative and questions. However at the beginning of the lesson I watch video and talk about the cartoon with students.

Speaking Jar

At the very beginning of every course students learn mostly new vocabulary and grammar structures. They do a lot of listening and reading. They start writing words and sentences. The ability of speaking in a foreign language is usually limited to repeating words or phrases after the teacher.
How to encourage your students to start thinking in a foreign language and express what they think?
I use a simple jar ( can be a box) with question cards. They are usually common, everyday life topic-based questions.
