Main Aims

  • To provide clarification, review and practice of language used for telling time in the context of daily routines

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a telling time in the context of daily routines


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

*Point to watch and ask students "what is this?", then point to the clock and ask the same question. *Ask if students know some information about how time is interpreted in different parts of the world, other than Turkey.

Exposure (6-8 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

*Show hand made clock. Explain to students what the hour hand and minute hand are. *Review "what time is it" *Write on board to practice a few examples of how to tell time.

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

*Write some background information, language needed (am, pm, clock, watch) on the board. *Write information about daily routines. (i.e. have breakfast, have lunch, get home, leave school etc) *Introduce question, "what time is it?"

Productive Task(s) (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

*Hand out clocks and time worksheets, have ss work in pairs to practice asking each other "what time is it? MONITOR. *Assign ss new partners. Give out handouts that contain students A and B activity. (teachers book page 143) Student A will have half of the clocks blank and will have to ask student B "what time is it", then vice versa. Have ss practice asking "what time is it" MONITOR. *Give ss directions regarding daily routine worksheet. Have students listen to recording 6.3. They will listen and circle the answer that correlates with the recording. Have ss work in pairs to check answers. MONITOR *Put answers up on the projector. *Demo how to play bingo. Give students the handout containing 10 times and the handout containing blank clocks. Instruct students to pick 6 times and draw them onto the faces of the clocks. Play bingo, whoever wins will get a prize.

Feedback and Error Correction (6-8 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

*Delayed feedback. Go over things that were noticed during monitoring time. *Write a review on the board. (i.e. what time is it? What time do you get up? I get up at...)
