Teaching practice 2
Elementary A1 level
To introduce/review and give Ss practice in family vocabulary
Reading, speaking & listening
Procedure (36-50 minutes)
Play the game hangman in order to review some family vocabulary, e.g. father, mother, son, daughter and so on.
Using the pictures, elicit the family vocab step by step – building up the tree of a Royal family on the w/b. Don’t write anything at this stage – but remember to drill, e.g. Charles is William's father. – do lots of repetition.
Then get Ss to practise in pairs – looking at the tree & saying who each person is in relation to the others.
Get Ss to do ex2 – grouping the family vocab according to gender – use the ans key to check
Introduce the family on p. 16. Get Ss to read & fill in the gaps with the correct vocab – using the pictures to help them. Let them check in pairs & then listen to the CD to check their answers.
Give Ss your blank family tree – get them to ask you questions – “Who’s Peter?” - & answer with simple sentences, e.g “He’s my brother.” - Ss listen & complete the tree – make sure different Ss ask you the questions. – Get Ss to check in pairs - & then check (using the ans key)
If time – as further practice Ss could work in pairs to ask & ans about your tree – e.g. “Who’s Peter?” “He’s Adriane’s/her brother.”
