TP 3 Functional language 'How much is a coffee?'
To get the Ss to practice using the functional language of money, prices and the question 'how much is it?'
To practice listening and speaking skills and learn some basic food vocab
Procedure (34-47 minutes)
T asks Ss 'do you like coffee?' using cup of coffee as prop. T gives very brief anecdote: 'I live in Cihangir. The coffee in Cihangir is very expensive!' Ss might ask 'how much is it?' If they don't get them to guess by writing a ? on WB and putting a couple of different prices. Put the question on WB: 'how much is it?'
T elicits TL (prices) using pictures of notes + the symbols. T sticks up some price tags with a range of different prices in short form (eg $2.50) + corresponding cards in word form (see WB plan) Clarification: Meaning: Should be clear from pictures but maybe try CCQs like 'which one will I use in London/New York/Rome/Istanbul? to double-check Form: 'Ten pounds and fifty pence' indicate short form = ten pounds fifty = ten fifty 'Ten dollars and fifty cents = ten dollars fifty= ten fifty (same for euros, elicit this 'same or different'?) Pronunciation: drill pronunciation chorally then separately as required Controlled practice: ex 1 a 'matching' Instructions: T chests HO 'numbers/words' match By yourself (or 'alone') Ss check in pairs quickly T gives an answer key
(I think the context for the listening has been sufficiently set and not sure if I need to pre-teach any vocab because they are just listening for the prices/really just doing a gist task as practice?) Instructions: - Let's listen - There are five conversations - Listen and write the prices in short form (point to short form example on board to clarify) - Work alone ICQs Do we write the long or short form? Do we write names or numbers? Ss listen and write T monitors and decides whether its worth playing recording again (since it's only really a gist task probably not) Ss check in pairs T takes some WC feedback (try to use 'do you guys agree?' to include less vocal students) Extension activity: Instructions: T chests HO 'in pairs, one person read the price and the other write the price (in short form)' Do quick demo if necessary Halfway through get students to check and then give writers some numbers to read. Take quick FB (was it difficult?)
T elicits questions: I want this apple, to learn the price, what can I ask ...? If nobody guesses use scaffolding. How much ___ this apple? Short form? How much is it? Two apples? How much ___ the apples? Short form How much ____ they? Meaning: CCQs Is this asking the price or number of apples? Form: label plural vs singular form difference clearly Pronunciation: drill the sentences naturally chorally/this half/ that half/ individually Who's hungry? Elicit food and drink vocab for exc 6 using pictures on WB, there are lots of cognates so should be ok Quickly drill them Instructions: T chests handout 'here is a menu, here are some foods, match' Get any early finishers to write their answers on WB and/or give answer key
T demos 'S how much is an egg sandwich and a coke?' S gives price. How can we answer positively? 'Ok, thank you' or 'oh no thanks' T - everybody stand up and ask each other T monitors and takes FB and does delayed error correction on WB if time (will likely be missing/incorrect articles)
