To provide product writing practice of an invitation letter in the context of party
To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about a birthday party
Procedure (5-40 minutes)
The teacher will play a party song in the beginning while the kids are settling in and an announcement will be made regarding an invitation to baby Robbies baby shower/birthday. The invitation will also be displayed on the WB.
Then the sts will be asked to find their envelopes that have their surnames on that are on the the table. Inside the envelopes the sts will find the invitation and will be asked to study the letter while the teacher writes related answers on the WB. Then sts will work in pairs to find and write the question regarding each answer and then read it out loud.
The teacher will then erase the board and hand out the actual questions that are represented in exercise b from their students book and the sts will check their questions and fill in the gaps accordingly to the text via gist reading..
After that the sts will be asked to stand up and walk around the classroom to look at some other examples of parties (i.e: costume, movie, etc..) and will be asked to tell what other parties there can be. They will then look under their table to find a color coded envelope hidden and inside there will be clues to design their own party invitation as a group
The written invitation will be passed on to the next group where the next group will open the envelope and match it with the color related poster. They will find their next envelope where they will find related content to the first envelope created by the previous group and will answer the questions and try to solve the puzzle.
