Teaching Practice 2
To provide clarification and practice of language used for Telling the time
To provide specific information listening practice using a text about time in the context of Telling the time
To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of Telling the time
Procedure (47-62 minutes)
At first i will stick a big clock on the WB and elicit the word "clock" and then elicit its use. Then I will elicit time words by showing them on the clock by moving hands or giving them some clues like "24 hours is ..." for eliciting "a day" and drill the words at the same time. Then I show them the written form of the words (small cards) and as they are repeating the words I will stick the cards on the WB next to the paper clock. Afterwards, Ss will be divided into two groups by the use of colored papers and will complete HO1 together and there is a group feedback at the end.
Ss sit in the horse shoe style and I set the big paper clock to seven o'clock and ask them "What time is it?' and elicit and drill "seven o'clock". The same will happen for five different times. Here I will try to elicit the first way of asking and answering the time by writing "A:........................?" on the WB and elicit "What time is it?" and write it on the board then write "B:...................." , elicit "Seven o'clock". Now, I will pair them and give them small paper clocks with moveable hands and ask them to set different times and ask and answer the target question with their partner. At the end we do open pairs feedback with volunteer pairs.
Ss sit in pairs. Introduce HO2 (folded) and give them names of the pictures to match them with their partner. I write the answers on the board and ask them to check their own answers.Then, give them the times related to each picture and ask them to match.
Now I should elicit other ways of saying time. I write (or show by paper clock) "1:20", "2:50", "2:15" and "2:45" to elicit the TL (after, two, quarter and half). I will drill each after eliciting. Now they should match different times on the paper to pictures on HO2 in pairs and after that I will give them the answer key(HO3) to check their job with.
Give them HO4 and ask them to complete it individually. Then ask them to check their answers in pairs. Whilst give them the answer key(HO5). Afterwards give them HO6 and instruct them to listen to the audio file and complete it individually. Then do WC feedback.
Turn on the OHP and show Grammar (Power Point slides). Elicit the gaps and drill focusing on pronunciation(put marks for stressed parts) and accuracy. Then move to the second slide and elicit the TL (at, from, to) and drill the sentences. Ask Ss to make their own sentences and check in pairs. Do some individual feedback.
Give Ss HO7 and ask them to draw hands for three of them. Ask Ss to stand up and ask three different friends the time of their clocks and complete them and answer questions as well. Whilst monitor and listen to pairs for errors for error correction (delayed). Do open pairs feedback. Do error correction.
Draw two big clocks on the WB. Divide Ss into two teams standing in two lines facing the WB. Give each group a marker. The first person in each line should draw the hands for the time that I say out loud as soon as possible.
