Ibrahim Yurttas, TP, 1
Beginner, A1 level
Listening and speaking about where people live and work.
review and practice the morphology of regular verb present simple. s/he +S
Procedure (32-47 minutes)
Showing the same pictures the students saw in the previous class. They are going to write "mother," "father," "brother," into the blanks.
Marker sentences from which nouns (teacher and doctor) and verbs (work and live) will be highlighted. Then, an exercise, for which the students are going to choose "noun" or "verb" for the underlined words in certain sentences, is going to be given.
Short paragraphs are going to be provided to the students for which they are going to do a T/F exercise.
First, I am going to elicit some job names like "doctor," bellboy," etc. Next, I am going to give the students a handout on which they are going to write a short introduction parahraph by filling in the gaps.
I am going to show the students two sets of sentences where they are going to see one sentence starting with I, and the other sentence starting with S/he. I am going to highlight that third person singular -s is added to the verb with subjects he and she in (positive) present simple sentences. Later, the students are going to be given a handout on which they are going to 'change' sentences starting with I to sentences starting with third person singular subjects. Finally, the studensts are going to write sentences (e.g. She is a cashier. She works for Tesco.) by looking at certain pictures.
The students are going to look at the map on page 18 of the coursebook. Based on the short paragraphs on the map, they are going to fill in the missing information that is from the map.
I am going to make students listen to a short audio. While listening to the audio, the students are going to decide who is in the pictures.
I am going to highlight some "marker sentences" from the listening and the students are going to change the sentences starting with I to sentences starting with s/he. Just to make sure that nothing is understood wrong, I am going to do the grammar practise exercise on page 18 of the coursebook.
I am going to take the students back to one of the earlier done activities and highlight only the verbs with the third singular person -s. This time I am going to want them to concentrate on the sounds /s/ and /z/. Later, I am going to give them a handout on which they are going to look at the verbs with the third singular person -s and decide if it is voiced /z/ or unvoiced /s/.
