*Teacher asks questions like ''Do you have daily routines?'' (Yes.) E.g. ''I wake up at five o'clock in the morning.'' ''What are your daily routines?'' ''Do you have weekly routines?'' (Yes.) E.g. ''I get up at eleven o'clock on saturday mornings.'' *Students answer the questions like the example sentences given by the teacher.
*Students work in pairs and tell each other about their routine in the week,e.g.'' Bora: I get up at five o 'clock in the week.'' Ömür: ''Really?I get up at about eleven!'' *a few students tell the class one or two things about their partner.
*Teacher focuses students on the tables. *Teacher points out the prepositions ''on, in, at ''and the examples. *Students writes the words and phrases in the correct column in the exercise 1 on page 40 SBook on their own. *Teacher draws the tables on the board. *Students come to the WB and write each phrase in the box under the right column of the table it goes in. *Teacher uses the tables to highlight the following patterns: 1-) We use ''on'' with days of the week (Sunday,e tc.) and parts of particular days( Tuesday morning, etc.); 2-) We use ''in'' with the morning, the afternoon and the evening (but we say ''at night'' not ''in night''); 3-) We use ''at''with times (six o'clock, midday , etc.). Also point out that we say ''in the week'' and ''at the weekend.'' *Teacher reminds students that midday = 12.00 and midnight = 24.00 and writes on WB.. *Teacher tells the class that when we talk about our routines, we can use the singular or plural form of days, parts of days and the weekend and gives examples on WB: 1-)''I play football on Friday/ Fridays.'' 2-)''He goes to the cinema on Wednesday evening/ evenings. 3-)''They eat out at the weekend/weekends.''
*Teacher play the recording 28 for exercise 1 b on page 40 of Sbook. * Students listen and practise. *Teacher point out that we say the weak form of ''at'' weak /ət/ with time phrases. *Students repeat the drill if necessary.
