I have never taught this sort of class, so my comments are based on more general principles.

I would not want to do anything really different for an observation lesson than I do normally. Two reasons--first, I want feedback on how my teaching is going. Not on how my teaching is when I go all out for one lesson. And second, if I do something that is totally unfamiliar to the class, the students may not respond predictably.

I'd suggest thinking about what you have been doing (is there a curriculum unit you have been working on--maybe signs of spring?). Then come up with a couple of activities that you and the class enjoy that will enable you to teach a little more about vocabulary and perhaps read a book. Be sure to include lots of opportunities for the students to practice their goals.

Look over the evaluation forms your observer will be using and be sure that your lesson hits the evaluation points.
