Present Simple: statement and negation
To introduce and practice the third person present simple in the in the context of Paul and Ss free time.
To provide accuracy through drilling, and fluency through freer practice.
Procedure (31-44 minutes)
I will use the image of Paul working in Antarctica from the previous lesson and use it to give my students model sentences. I will try to elicit the model sentences in the positive and negative form from my students, but if they are unable to produce the model sentences, then I will give it to them in a context they are already familiar with.
I don't think students will have any trouble with meaning, but I will quickly do some CCQs and then move on to pronunciation through drilling of each present simple in the third person. Form will also be clarified through the PPT.
I will introduce and clarify the form of the V in the present simple, and teach students that if the V ends in ch, sh, s, ss, x, or z then we add es. If the verb ends in consonant y, then we change to i and ad es. I will also review when we use doesn't vs. don't.
I will use the vocabulary that students learned in the previous lesson, and in groups of three, I will give students an opportunity to use the language through the context of activities they do or don't do.
Ss will work alone to do ex. 7 write the correct form of the verb in each of the fill in the blanks. This is a lengthy activity, so I will give students some time to complete the task. Then students will check in PW and we will check answer during WCFB.
Students will take their papers and sit across from each other. Now they will complete ex. 9a and make guess about what they think their partner does or doesn't do. We will then do ex. 9b once they complete the exercise and students will make three questions for their partner. They will then turn to the person next to them and report using he/she/it. (10a-c)
