Dynamic and Stative
To provide review, clarification and practice of dynamic and stative verbs in the context of many contexts using the grammar
To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of many different contexts using the target language
Procedure (45-59 minutes)
Put 3 pictures that convey dynamic verbs. Ask them what they're doing in the pictures. Write those verbs on the board. Explain about the differences. Dynamic can be seen. Stative cannot be seen. Dynamic can have many forms specifically continuous. Stative cannot.
The photos will be dynamic and the point is they can be seen unlike stative verbs. I will show the photos, ask what they're doing in the photos, explain that these are dynamic, we can add -ing, we can see them. And then write some stative verbs on the board and tell them these verbs cannot be seen, and we do not add -ing, therefore they are stative.
I will give a handout with some examples of both dynamic and stative verbs that they can keep.
Review, meaning, form and pronunciation asking the students CCQs.
Activity number 1 in pairs. And then do activity number 2 with a different partner.
Concept check: I give students a handout of the song 'Yesterday' and they need to work in groups to circle the state verbs. Then we will go over the concept of state verbs.
Write 1 sentence using a state verb and 1 sentence using a state verb in pairs.
