Mansoureh 2
Elementary level


In this lesson the Ss will learn to use simple present pronouns: 'I, you, we, and they' by referring back to a text they have just studied. They will also do some controlled exercises in the book asking them to write sentences using simple present. By the end of the lesson, they will be able to talk about their daily routines and habits.

Main Aims

  • To teach the students how to talk about their habits and daily activities in the context of present.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To help the students gain accuracy in the context of present.


Warmer/Lead-in (4-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The teacher will refer back to the text they students have just studied in part 3 and ask them to tell their partners about Sam's daily habits and routines.

Guided Discovery (3-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the form of the target language

I will ask the students to read some sentences on the papers they have been given and circle the verbs and then check with their partners. Then some volunteers will go to the board and circle the correct answers.

Teaching/Clarification (7-9 minutes) • To teach simple present

I will start this part with CCQs to test whether they know simple present or not. CCQs: Is it about past or present? Is it just about now or is it a routine? Then I will write the rules of the grammar on the board by elicitation. This part will be followed by (variable) substitution drills using some cards.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare the students for more meaningful practice

I will direct the students to the workbook and ask them to look at the pictures and write sentences about Barry's daily life from his point of view. Then they will check with their partners. In the meantime, I will stick the answers written on a piece of paper on the board and then they will go to the board and check their answers.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-9 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for freer practice

I will ask the students to write six sentences about their daily routines using the verbs in exercise 2 of the workbook and then compare with their partners.

Freer Practice (7-8 minutes) • To provide students with freer practice of the target language

After checking the sentences with their partners, I will ask them to see if they have anything in common with anyone in their groups and then tell the class about it.
