Main Aims

  • To present and practice the negative form of be (I'm not / We're not) in the context of discussing families

Subsidiary Aims

  • listening and speaking


Warmer/Lead-in (1-2 minutes) • To engage students in the lesson

I am going to write the title of the lesson which is NEGATIVE BE VERB on the board and ask the Ss about the meaning of the word negative. Then I will tell them the meaning by showing the symbols + and -.

Grammar Clarification (10-20 minutes) • To teach how to make a sentence negative

I will write a present simple sentence on the WB which includes BE verb. Then will write the negative version under that. I will tell them this sentence has been made negative by adding the word NOT and provide more examples. After that, I will explain about the way of adding NOT to the word HAVE and show not having the possession of sth by holding a pen in my hand and then put it in the desk and say I HAVE NO PEN. Ultimately, when I make sure everybody has understood the grammar perfectly, I will give them a handout with five sentences in negative form of the verb and ask them to match them with the pictures.

Listening Practice (5-10 minutes) • To improve Ss skills over the lesson's subject

First I will play the track for the students and ask them if they could understand the thing two people were talking about. Then I will play the track for the second time, write four questions on the WB and ask them to answer the questions.

Speaking (10-15 minutes) • To develop SS ability in making conversation with each other over the subject

I will write a short conversation between two friends who bump into each other during shopping. Then I will perform the conversation with one of the Ss and let them know how they should talk. Then I'm going to divide the whole class into two groups. The first group is A and the second B. Then I stick some stickers on each person's chest which let the person who they are going to talk to read the sentences and make the conversation easier. For instance, if I am in group A, I have the sentences of group B on my chest.
