Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of the simple present verbs

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of actions and verbs


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

Enter the class and after greeting play a matching game. Ask Ss to sit on the floor. Then face down two sets of flashcards. Then pick two cards and show your ss. They might match or not. If they matched keep it and if not put it back. Then after modeling the game let the Ss play. The one with most cards is the winner.

Clarification (6-7 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Use the flash cards of the winner and introduce some new words and then use your own flashcards to teach the other new words. Use body language if possible for some words. Have the Ss repeat the words first chorally then in pairs and individually. Then stick each flash card to the board and write its name under it.

Reading the Story. (4-5 minutes) • To read the story of the book and get familiar with the form of the sentences

Ask Ss to open their book to page 40.( do book-chesting) First ask them about the pictures and what they see or think they are doing? First ask them to look at their book and follow as you read the sentences for them. Then play the audio track and pause it after each sentence and ask Ss to repeat. You can have a brain break before starting teaching grammar to refresh your Ss.

Teaching Grammer (9-10 minutes) • To teach the the Ss the use of verb

Use the days of the week poster and then pick a flashcard and describe it. Then say the book's sentence about it and focus on the verb. Then write the sentence on the board. ( highlight the verb) Then choose another flashcard and say a negative sentence about it. Again first have the ss repeating it then write it on the board. Use two more examples.

Controlled Practice (3-4 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Ask the Ss to answer the Qs in part 3.Then let them check in pairs and after that let them share with the class. Give the class feedback. If they had problems doing it first write 1 or two sentences on the board and make it like a game. Write a sentence and put a gap instead of the verb and then ask a Ss to fill the gap with a word card.

Semi-Controlled Practice (4-5 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Ask the Ss to talk about pictures in part 4 and have a conversation. You can model the books example first and then have the Ss talking.

Free Practice (5-6 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Use the verbs house to let the Ss make sentences. Ask Students to make up a line. Then the first person needs to answer. open a door of the house. Then the person should come up with a sentence. If he/she passes the first door the next door opens and if not the game gets to another person. Some doors have surprises and the person who opens the last door gets a prize.
