Warmer/Lead-in (5-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

My lesson will start with "Get in Line" activity. This is a kind of warm-up that involves all the participants lining up single-file according to a specified criteria. In this part of the lesson, I will give 3 questions to ss (1. How old are you? 2. What is your first name? 3. How many brothers or sisters have you got? ) they will ask these questions each other.For example, in the 2nd question, students will line up in alphabetical order by firs name. If one's name starts with "A" , s/he will stand on the starting point of line. At the end of this task, there will be 2 groups in the class. For lead-in, as a teacher, I will show four photos about topic of our lesson.I will want them to guess and also interpret the photos. I will support ss if they need.

Exposure (3-4 minutes) • To provide context for the target vocabulary through a situation

After showing these photos, ss will try to guess and aIso interpret the situtations in photos As a teacher, I have two aims here: firstly, to provide to be familiar to our topic and theme and to draw students' attention to the target vocabulary, then, to expose their past experiences and activate their schemata.

Clarification (10-12 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target vocabulary

I will show some coloured photos on my hand to elicit the targer vocabulary. I will use CCQs if needed. I will elicit 15 new words totaly in this way. Then, I will do pronunciation activity. I will want ss to listen to me and repeat. I will ask them to make a simple full sentence for each word. While doing this task, ss' course book (English for Life) will be closed because as a teacher I want ss to see the written form of the words at the end of the session.

Controlled Practice (15-18 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I will post some photos and words on the walls of the class before lesson.I will ask them to stand up and find the correct photo and its name. Then they will match the words with their photos. After finished, ss will show and check their answers with WC. IN STAGE 3 I will give ss a handout. Pictunary=Picture Dictionary (Complete the sentences by helping pictures)In this worksheet, ss will have facility to drill the target vocabulary in a new context. Additionally, photos will assist them.

Semi-Controlled Practice (4-5 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

In this stage, ss will do exercise 3 on page 53 (Course Book English for Life-Pre-intermediate) Ask and answer with a partner about the activities. Ss will work in groups.
