Teaching Practice 5
Elementary level


In this lesson which focuses mainly on grammar, students become familiarized with the frequency adverbs. The lesson starts with an integrated reading and listening task, introducing the frequency adverbs in a context. This is followed by a grammar task which contains couple of exercises for Ss' practice.


Abc 'Reading and Listening' and Grammar Handouts

Main Aims

  • To familiarize students with frequency adverbs (every day/week/month, etc) and give controlled practice in them via grammar exercises

Subsidiary Aims

  • to give Ss practice in reading and listening for specific information and detail


Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To introduce the topic via a quick speaking task or picture work

The T should think of a short warmer to get the Ss interested in the topic. An appropriate exercise may be the one in which the teacher shows some photos of famous actors and actresses and asks the students whether they know these famous people and the movie they played in, or not. She asks them to discuss in pairs. Then she gets FB by nominating some of the students.

Reading and Listening (5-10 minutes) • Diagnosing Specific Information by listening to the recording and reading the passage

The T asks the students to look at the non-Hollywood films mentioned in the passage and asks the students whether they have seen any of them or not. Then she asks the students to read the statements and guess whether they are true or false. The students discuss in pairs. Then she asks the Ss' to listen to the recording in order to find the answers. Then the Ss peer check with each other. The teacher provides the answer key on the board.

Grammar (5-10 minutes) • To familiarize Ss with frequency adverbs

The T writes the first example from the grammar note on the board. Then writes 'Every ...' and asks students to tell her the words which could follow(eg month, week,day). Then she writes Q: How .... do you go to the cinema? A:'once' a 'week' She asks the students to complete the question and then tell her words which could substitute the distinguished words(eg once,twice,three times,week,day,month,year)

Grammar exercise 1 (8-12 minutes) • To practice the grammar previously taught

The T plays the recording and asks the students to read and complete the sentences in pairs. Then she divides the students into groups of three. The students check the answers with each other. Then she provides them with the answer key.

Grammar exercise 2 (8-12 minutes) • To use the frequency expressions practically

The T asks the students to read the sentences about one person's film habits in exercise 2. Students then substitute the underlined phrases with expressions in the box. The T can do the first example with the students as an example. Ss do the exercise in their groups. Finally the teacher provides them with the answer key in the form of handouts.
