To provide clarification and practice of Present simple questions (short answers) for I/you/we/day
To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of Evenings and weekends routines
Procedure (42-59 minutes)
At the start of the class I will show the Ss a picture related to their last listening task and ask them different question about it to make them remember some things about it.
I will give them a HO of three different questions and short answers(HO1) about the previous listening part. Ss will listen to the audio file R3.5 once and match the questions with their short answers individually. There is a WC FB At the end.
I will elicit and write 'I go shopping at the weekends.' on the WB by the use of a picture. then I will ask them some CCQs. + Is it talking about this weekend or all weekends? – all weekends + Is it (Shopping) happening right now? or it is my routine. - It is my routine. After questions I will put a negative mark on the board and elicit the negative form of the sentence above.
Now, I will elicit the TL by eliciting different forms (for you/we/they) of the negative sentence above. Afterwards, I will highlight the form(Subject + don't + bare infinitive + ...). Next, I will drill the sentences paying attention to the intonation of the whole sentence.
I give them HO2 and instruct them to put the sentences into the chart and complete it. After a short time they check their answers in pairs with a partner. whilst, I write the answers on the WB for them and ask them to check theirs.
I give them HO3 and give instructions by a demo with two first sentences about myself. Then, Ss do it individually. Then I introduce the bubble at the back of their papers and pair them up and tell them to ask and answer question in pairs using speech bubbles. At the end we do open pair feedback with some volunteers.
I write a sentence on the board(I work at the weekends.) and tell Ss that it is about 'me' and get them to ask a question about 'me' related to this sentence. After eliciting the question form(Do you work at the weekends?), I try to elicit yes/no answers with gesture. Then I get Ss to give me the sentences for you(plural) and they with yes/no answers. Afterwards, I elicit the form (Do + S + bare infinitive + ....? ). At the end we drill all the forms (Affirmative, Negative and question) with back chaining as all the Ss stand up.
I give them HO4 and they complete it individually after my instructions. After a while, they compare their answers with their partners and I give them the answer key (HO5) whilst.
Ss will play 'a treasure island' game. They should stand up and search around the room to find five different questions of the TL which are hidden in different places around the class. First two people who find all five of them will be the winners of the game.
