TP 6 - Listening to a SONG
To provide gist and specific information listening practice using a text about one party in the context of song (It's my party, and i cry if i want to)
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of organizing a party
Procedure (32-40 minutes)
Put on the board the pic of a party. Ask the students to make assumptions related to the picture: WHERE - HOME WHO - FRIENDS HOW - CRYING WHAT - PARTY What do the think our today's lesson is about? Elicit party. Pair work for assumption, w/c discussion.
So, today's topic is PARTY. What does HOST mean? - a person that organizes a party (i invite you to my place) guest - it's the person that is invited to the party/or to visit someone's home hold your friend's hand - to check if they know the meaning. if not, mime it records - songs leave me alone - when you are upset, how do you feel? Sad. And, do you want to be alone or with somebody? Alone. And if somebody comes? you tell her to go - leave me alone. Give me an example walked through - left the room wearing his ring - they are friends now
Now, I play a song for your. Listen to it and tell me if your assumption was correct. Is it a happy song? What's about? What's the story? If necessary play again the song. Discuss with your peer. Feedback as a class. It's a sad song, with cheerful soundtrack. It's about a party where the girl's boyfriend left the party with her friend. And she's crying.
Give the song's lyrics to the students. Read the text and identify the 3 characters who's the host - the lady that cries who's Johnny - host's boyfriend who's Judy - host's friend Pair work, feedback as a class
Now, give the lyrics to the students. There is an extra-word (PRE-TEACH) in each verse (PRE-TEACH). Listen to the song and cross out (cut/tick) the extra word. Listen again if required. Check with your partner, feedback as a class. Give the text with the extra-words underlined to each student so they can check by themselves. (auto correction)
Write about your party considering these: When Why How were you? Where? With whom? Food? Drinks? On the board put your own idea of party: On Saturday I had my party. It was my 15 years old party. I was very happy. I received a lot of presents and lots of friends came. It was in my home. We had have something to eat: cheeseburger and chips, apple pie and ice-cream. We listened to the music and we danced. We dressed like SELENA GOMEZ :-) Now, write about your party for 2' and then stick your party to the board. Come and read about the parties and tell me which one would you like to go to.
