Warmer/Lead-in (0-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

At the beginning of the lesson I will greet my students, "Good morning, hope you are doing well". Then, teacher is going to lead in her class only by eliciting because T wants to take SS interest. I divide the class into pairs. Then I will show my watch and ask "What time is it?". After getting the correct answer I will use the clock and ask them "What time is it?". After getting the correct answer I will ask one volunteer to write the answer on the board. After giving 4 examples, I will say "excellant" and begin to talk.

Leading activity (0-5 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I will divide the class into 4 groups. I will turn on the projector and say "Look at the board now. What time is it?". I will point to every group in row and want them to answer the question and write the answer on the board. It will affect them in a positive way because they will see the question and come to the board and write the answer (kinesthetic). After then, I will give HO-1 and say them to fill in the blanks. After they finish writing, I will show the board and ask to come to the board and write the answer.

Listening Task (7 minutes) • To set the context and engage students

In that step, I will give them HO-2 and tell them to listen to the audio carefully and draw an hour-hand and minute hand. To make my instruction clear, I will draw an hour-hand and a minute hand. After they finish listening, I will ask them to discuss their answers and swap their answers with other groups.

In that stage, we are going to see the collocations. First of all T changes the groups. I will give some examples from real life that it can be easier to understand this part. T tells them "They are always together. For example: fish and chips, cigarette and coffee, cinema and pop corn." teacher gives them HO-3 and waits them to discuss and think together. After then, I will turn on the projector and want them to write the correct answers on the board.

Then, the T gives HO-4 and wants them to discuss with their firends and put the words into correct column in HO-4. In that step we are going to use the projector again.
