Teacher will write numbers on the board "365/12/30,31" and asks students to stand up and let them discuss what the numbers represent? And do they have a meaning?
Teacher asks students "What does the man in the video say?" Give them clues: + when's your birthday? or : what's your birthday? + 22 of February or : 22nd of February 8 or 8th? Teacher asks students if they know other months: + If they do give them a chart and tell them to complete it in groups + If they don't let them listen to the audio R8.8 and repeat. Next, students will listen to the audio R8.9 and they say what they notice. For example,"numbers end with /th/ sound"
In pairs, students listen again to audio R8.11. They keep the same questions and they change the answer. For example, one of the students asks "what day is it today?" The teacher says"It's Wednesday".
Teacher brings chocolate in a box. Students are supposed to make a circle and everyone asks the other when is your birthday the one next to you says it is on November the 3rd, for example. Student takes a chocolate and passes it to his partner.
the last task for students is to ask them to right on a piece of paper what did they like what what they don't without writing down their names. Students give 3 positive ideas they liked and negative ideas that they didn't like, what they understand and what they don't during the lesson. The feedback writing paper has to be done every month to see what is missing in the session and to try to fix problems that students are complaining of.
