No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To enable the students to make affirmative and negative statements using present simple for all pronouns, in the context of describing things you do at home or school (e.g. She doesn't watch extreme sports, He plays football)

Subsidiary Aims

  • To enable the students to practise speaking with each other about the things they do and don't do


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

T provides the students with sentences containing gaps and the students fill in the gaps orally.

Grammar exposure - present simple: affirmative and negative (8-10 minutes) • To present the form of the present simple

Form of present simple is presented with some gaps and T elicits correct form from students before putting the complete poster on the board. Then elicit answers with correct form from the poster on the board. T points to herself "I play football", and examples of the sort.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning and form of "like/likes", "doesn't" and "don't" in making affirmative and negative language

Students do an exercise making "affirmative and negative" sentences based on the text they have heard so that they are true about Joe and Sadie. e.g. "Sadie/meat" --> "Sadie doesn't like meat" on a sheet of paper. Individually.

Controlled Practice - Speaking (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and to enable the students to speak amongst themselves

The students work in pairs. T puts phrases on the board about herself. Students have to guess which statements are true, then the T gives them the correct answers.

Pronunciation /s/, /z/, /ɪz/ (8-10 minutes) • To enable students to practice pronunciation of the present simple

The endings of the present simple are stuck on the board and they are drilled several times. The student then mimes out the words and the students have to use the correct phrase and verb form (with correct pronunciation) and guess what activity is being mimed (charades).
