Clothes - TP8
To practice the clothing items vocabulary in the context of visuals showing separate clothes and people wearing these clothes.
To review sts previous knowledge of Present Continuous tense when describing what people wear.
To provide accuracy in speech while describing people's clothes.
Procedure (35-53 minutes)
As there are too many clothing items, T will give sets a list of words and ask sts to put those words into categories of "the words you know" and "the words you don't know". While sts are completing the task T will monitor them and note down the unknown words before using visuals to check the meaning in the next stage. (blazer vest blouse uniform boots cap coat dress trousers glasses high heels tie sweatshirt jacket sweater suit jeans jersey socks raincoat trainers scarf shirt shoes skirt)
Upon monitoring students during the first stage T will show the visuals of clothes and wait for sts to say the word that defines the clothing item on the picture aloud. T will try to elicit vocabulary as much as possible. She will focus on the words that sts may not know (blazer-blouse-cap-high heels-jacket-jersey-scarf-shirt-skirt-socks-suit-sweater-sweatshirt-tie-trainers-trousers-vest) CCQ: (for raincoat) Do we wear this when there is sun? (No.) When it's raining? (Yes.)
T will ask if she's wearing "a dress pink" or "a pink dress". Then she will elicit some noun phrases by asking questions like, What's Eda wearing today?, What's Habibe wearing today? etc. T will write the answers on the board and highlight the form of noun phrase which is adj. + noun and the form of Present Continuous tense.
T will point the sentences on the board and drills these sentences in the guidance of present continuous tense weak form of "I'm, She's, He's, You're etc." and stress patterns of noun phrases like red dress, pick shoes, blue blazer etc., stress being on the noun itself.
T will divide the class into two groups. Mostly the pictures of the words they didn't know and learnt in the previous stages will be on the board. T will say the word and each group member standing in front of the board will rush and try to get the matching picture.
Sts will work in pairs and each group member is going to be given different picture people but they will not show these pictures to their partners. They will ask each other the question that "what's s/he wearing?" and wait for their partner to describe the clothes on the pic and take notes. When they completed the task T will ask what's the person on your partner's photo is wearing? and they will answer orally.
Sts will be in pairs and they will describe a person's clothes without telling his/her name so that the other member should guess the name according to the description.
After monitoring sts during the activities, T will correct the errors regarding meaning, form and pronunciation, she will highlight the TL.
Depending on the time left T may ask the question "what are you wearing today?" to review the whole lesson.
