Subsidiary Aims

Perhaps the most important element of any plan is the part where we say what our aims are.Jeremy Harmer in The Practice of English Language Teaching


review (7-9 minutes) • To have the ss remember the previous lessons

Go through the usual greetings. Ask ss what they remember generally from prvious lessons. El;icit specific things. Like who Beeno is, or what spelling means.

Exposure (6-8 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

The T asks the students to open their books on page 7. The T reads the story out loud and the ss repeat each sentence. the T uses this to check understanding of the different words and sentence patterns of the text.

Highlighting, Clarification (10-12 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the time of day language

Using a ppt. The T draws attention to and clarifies the relationship vocabulary. The T then sets up a game for which a St needs to read what the T writes to get the chance to throw a ball at the picture of the corresponding word. After the game a second reading of th text is done as a whole class. Individual ss are then asked to read sentences playing out the different roles.

Extra (5-10 minutes) • Consolidation

The class plays the game of hangman with the different elements of the TL, to consolidate their ability to read them.

Extra 2 • Aditional exposure to the English language, and give ss the opportunity to relax

Play a video, hopefully the "Song of the Sea" movie if not a following moomins episode (3).
