Procedure (31-55 minutes)
T will open by talking about different jobs and touching on own work history. T will ask Ss about their own jobs (if they work) and whether they like them. *Ss will talk about their jobs, T will listen and ask questions.
T will show two photos of people at work and write simple sentences on the board for Ss to complete. T will ask questions about the people in the pictures. ("How old is he?" "What country is he in?" "Does she work in a restaurant?") Then T will write sentences showing 1st person singular, then 3rd person singular, stressing the -s. T will have Ss (in pairs) decide what is different and why. *Ss will tell T and each other what is different about the sentences. T will drill the phrases and ask questions about them. *Ss will tell T and each other what is different about the sentences.
T will hand out strips of six pictures and ask Ss to write sentences using words written on the board and using 3rd person singular of the present simple. *Ss write the sentences individually then check in paris. Ss then read aloud their sentences.
T will show a picture of a family member or friend and tell the Ss a bit about the person to personalize the context. T will ask students to do the same by thinking of two people they know (only one if time is short) and writing one or two sentences about their jobs. *Ss will write the sentences and then they will tell the other students about the two people.
