Procedure (25-50 minutes)
Give students instructions about how to do the ex1. After , in pairs ss should find the tenses. Later, with T and WC give the answers together.
After ss have done the ex1, T writes 5 sentences on the board and ask students which tense is used in which sentence. and require them to match it uses.
T prepares 3 sentences about her family by using one of the time phrases in the box ex3. Show this to the ss as role model , then ss work alone and write about their families by using the time phrases-again one from each box. After enough time, T give them a chance to compare their sentences with their peers.
T first divide class into the groups of 3. Later, T gives out the prepared 12 cards to each group , it needs to be face down. Ss take turns in the groups and make sentences about themselves or their family. Ss shoudl speak ,not write.
Before ss fill the gaps in pairs, T asks ss " where is the person originally from?", "What does he do now?". SS read quickly and answer questions. Then with their partners , ss fill the gaps using appropriate form. Later, Give out the answer key and check the answers and deal with any problems.
first SS choose 4 question they would be comfortable answering. Ss work in pairs and meantime ss can change partners and interview someone else.
First T give instructions to the Ss how to play this game. First, T create a line according to ss' names and write a time phrase that ss have just learned. T requires them to complete the phrase in 20 secs or less and if cannot, pass to the other person behind each other. it goes like this until someone actually can do that and this person will write a phrase and will be the first one.
