Elementary, face to face, pages 38-39 level
To provide clarification of There is , there are in the context of likes and dislikes, places
To provide listening and speaking based on some places
Procedure (38-48 minutes)
At this stage students are going to talk about their favorite food and drink and also different buildings around the place where they live. In this way I can engage and make them ready for the grammar part (there is/ there are).
I am going to give them 3 photos of different cities and listen to some sentences from 3 conversations about the places. They are going to guess which sentences are about Auckland, Keswick or Eyeries. There are 3 sentences for each place. And then working on grammar part and pronunciation.At this stage I am going to teach them the use of there is and there are for singular, plural, countable and uncountable nouns using the board to illustrate for them. And also the negative and question forms.
I am going to give students some HOs to work on using there is, there are and question/ negative forms to work in pairs and groups. Students are going to do a listening part taken from Old Headway Elementary, The teacher monitors them for delayed error correction. And finally they are provided with the answers.
They are given another HO to choose a favorite place (a town/ city/ village in their country or a holiday place they know). They should tick/ cross the things in the box that are/ are not in that place. Finally they compare their ideas with each other's in close and open pairs.
