A1 (beginner) level
Procedure (37-45 minutes)
First, I will ask them about the weather today like; How is the weather today? if they do not understand the meaning I will make some gestures that show that I am cold to elicit the adjective "cold". then I will draw a thermometer and write next to it 35 degrees, to make them understand that it is a temperature in order to elicit the adjective "hot". Then another thermometer with 50 degrees to elicit " very hot". I will highlight the additional degrees to make them understand that it is not just "hot". it is "very hot".
I will give ss some pictures after putting them in groups and ask them to tell each other what can they see in each picture. The instructions will be: in your group, say (and will point to my mouth to illustrate what I mean by say) what are there in each picture and I will do in front of them the first one such as; I: who is this? ( I will carry the photo of the Turkish celebrity Hazal kaya ss: she is hazal If they know her name it is ok, if not I will say: look at her face. Do you like her? ss: yes I: why? ss: she is beautiful. I will ask them to repeat it then I write it on board and do the same thing for the rest of the photos to elicit the adjectives: ugly ( here I point to the picture and say; is she beautiful? ss: no I: then she is ..... I will go through the picures one by one to cover all the adjective in exercise 1. at the end I will emphasize the idea that those are opposites by saying; are those two pictures the same? ss: no I: what are they? ss:..................opposites or maybe they do not know this word so I will say it in that case. I need also to emphasize that those are adjectives.
I will give each one a handout and ask them to match the pictures to the adjective. Then I will nominate ss to answer.
I will write sentences on board and ask ss in pairs to discuss which one is right and which one is wrong. Then I will do the feedback by asking one from each group about the answer.
ss do exercise 3 by giving them small cards that contain words and tell them to make a sentence in the right order like a puzzle game ( I do the first one as an example by scattering words on board then ask; How do I make a sentence? this word first or this? ). and I will state the end of the exercise using the bell of my cell phone. Then ss write the answers on board.
I draw a hotel and write on it "Dedeman" and ask; what is this? ss: hotel I draw a room and a restaurant and say; what is this? ss: room, restaurant I ask; is there any internet cafe ss: no me: so there are a ..........ss say here "room" and a ......... ss say "restaurant" ,but there is no ........... internet cafe, I highlight and ,but. I ask where is the room? ss: near the restaurant. I draw a person and name him jack and ask; who is here? ss: jack is here where is he now? ss: he is in the room Then a lot of people and say: where are those people? ss: the people are in the .......
ss read the text and answer the question where are sally and Dan? I will also ask what is there at the end? ss: Love sally and Dan. we can write this at the end of an email
ss do exercise 5 tick the true answer and correct the wrong one after they re-read the previous text. First I will ask them just to write whether they are true or false then to correct the false ones after I do the first one as an example in order not to confuse them and I will say do the same( I will point to the wrong adjective and cross it while I am saying do the same to make the instructions as clear as possible) then they will check with their partners and I will later write the FB on board.
