To provide review of countable / uncountable nouns and there is / there are in the context of Rooms and things in a house.
Procedure (33-45 minutes)
The teacher will first try to get the students' names. Then he will display a picture on the board (the person will be connected to Sepideh's lesson) and tell the students that the person wants to rent a flat.
The teacher divides the students into four different groups called living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Subsequently, he will give them randomly mixed pieces of paper on which one house item is written. The students will find, categorize the items and stick them on the WB within 2 minutes (ICQ - How much time do you have? 2 minutes). Afterwards, the teacher will tell them to close their eyes and dream of their dream flat (how many rooms, furniture, etc.) The students will be supposed to use phrases like 'there is / there are as well as countable and uncountable nouns'. The teacher will then ask the students to tell each other about their dream flats. While the students are on task, the T will be monitoring and picking up common mistakes.
After writing the common mistakes on the board, the teacher will make sure any kind of misunderstanding regarding grammar is eliminated. In the following period, the teacher will provide some drilling on pronunciation.
Students will first do a matching activity in pairs and then be divided into two groups in order to play board race. This time, with the flat picture being displayed on the board, the students will line up in front of it. The teacher will give the students the same papers as in the first activity with the empty side up. The students will look at the word and race to the board (ICQ - Can you look before I say you can? No. Can you run to the board before the other person is back? No.). The winner will be the group who sticks all of their words first.
With the same words, the teacher will create 3 or 4 flats with different furniture on the board and say that Eric decided to rent one of these flats. The students will be divided into groups. Each round, one student from each group will turn his back to the board (Can you turn around and look? No.), and the other students in the group will try to explain which flat Eric decided to rent by using the target language. It won't be the same flat every time, of course!
