Abc CUs, HOs

Main Aims

  • To familiarize ss with Present Simple Tense in the context of daily routines.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To practice the TL by reading a dialog about an actor's daily routines.


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I am planning to show some pictures depicting daily activities to Ss and ask them questions like "what do you see in the picture?, what is the activity in the picture?" to familiarize them with the TL.

Exposure (15-20 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I am planning to use CUs for a matching activity. The activity has three stages. In the first part, ss will match TL pictures with the written forms of the verbs depicted in the pictures. In the second part, ss will stick the matched picture and the written verb on wb which will be sectioned as 'morning activities, afternoon activities, evening activities, night activities, all time activities'. In the last part, while the T will be speaking about his own daily life, ss will be picking the verbs and the pictures on the wb as they will here them. I am planning to do a reading practice by using an interview of an actor about his daily life.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I will use exercise 2 and exercise 3 of the reading dialog to highlight the sentence form of Present Perfect Tense. I am planning to use CCQs.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I am planning to ask questions about T's daily life and get answers from Ss. I will as CCQs to students about the meaning of the tense. I will also use exercise 4 of the reading dialog to clarify the form of the tense.

Controlled Practice (3-5 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I will ask ss to write six sentences about their own daily lives and I am planning to monitor them while they will be writing.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

I will ask ss to read their sentences for the class and ask CCQs.
