Meet the Robinsons
To introduce and practice vocabulary for talking about families.
Reading in the context of 'family'
Procedure (35-51 minutes)
Ss will be shown a picture of a famous family and I elicit a few words for family members using the picture then have my students work in pairs.
I will direct some questions relate to last three sessions and encourage them to participate. Bearing this information and the family chart of Robinsons in mind each student and his partner will be invited to make correlation between family members to complete the missing information on the pictures in ex.1.
Students will work individually to do ex.1a (read and fill in the blanks). Students check in pairs and then listen to check their answers. I will do a brief WCFB to insure that everyone has correct answers and drill for pronunciation.
I modified ex.2 and designed a three columned list to group the family vocab according to gender. I will stick some cards onto the board and ask students to name male female and both female and male family members. Writings on the cards cannot be seen from the vantage point of the students.
I will have my students do ex.4. I will give a quick demo here to show them what they should do.
I will have students do workbook p.11 ex.2. I will have them check in pairs and then check WC.
I will put students in groups of three or four and ask them ask ach other 'How many' questions about their own families.
I will do WCFB by having students report what they have learned. If there will be any minutes up I will conduct a pronunciation game to revise problematic words.
