Teaching Practice 1
Elementary level


In this lesson the students will be encouraged to practice reading. The reading will majorly be for capturing the main idea of the text. The students are not expected to have a deep analysis of the reading. Furthermore, the students will also be encouraged to do detailed exercises in the context of numbers. Throughout the second part of the lesson, the students will be exposed to more number related activities.

Main Aims

  • To provide practice of reading for gist and detail in the context of numbers

Subsidiary Aims

  • To review and practice more number-related vocabulary


Stage 1 (6-7 minutes) • To introduce the lesson and do a lead in exercise

I will introduce myself and I will tell the students that we are going to do a reading and a couple of exercises about some numbers. For the warm up exercise I will use the teachers book and do an exercise from it. I will draw a big grid on the board and i will give each student one copy of it. i will ask them to write the letter i say to the box i say (matching) (e.g. In box no 5 write the letter K). when finished i will have students work in pair to check their answers. then i will give whole class feedback and do drilling of the numbers

Stage 2 (6-7 minutes) • To encourage the students engage in class and teach correct order of numbers

i will divide students into groups of 4 or 5 and i will give each group 10 pieces of paper with random numbers written on them. i will ask the students to keep the papers faced down until i finish giving instructions. i will tell them to have a look at their cards within their group for 10 20 seconds then come up to the board and place them in correct order. first group finishes wins.

Stage 3 (6-7 minutes) • to expose students the pronunciations of the numbers

i will read the numbers out from the Vocab exercise 3 and i will have students write them down. i will let them check in pairs before i give the answer in the whole class feedback. then i will read the answers out and write them on board. i will drill every number and do extra drilling on problematic numbers as 14//40 13//30 etc.

Stage 4 (10-12 minutes) • to teach students meanings of the given words through a reading exercise

before giving the text i will write down the words Common, Lucky, Unlucky and Sequence. i will match pictures with each word and try to keep it as simple as possible to make them easier to understand as all of the words are abstract words. i will ask ccqs. for example is it common to sea snow in winter? // is it lucky if i find money in my pocket etc. to check if they have the general idea

Stage 5 (5-6 minutes) • to do a vocabulary activity in group work through the reading text

i will write down the numbers 8,3,13 and 1 from the reading texts on the board. i will divide students into groups of 4 or 5. i will give them paper stating examples from the text related to a specific number on the board. i will have them match the papers with the numbers on the board. first group finishes wins

Stage 6 (5-6 minutes) • to encourage students to speak through culture related questions

i will encourage the students to speak by asking the questions from the coursebook. i will start with lucky numbers i will ask students if they have any lucky numbers. then i will move onto cultures. i will ask about special/ lucky numbers in Turkish culture.
