Abc Flashcards

Main Aims

  • To provide practice in writing proper sentences.
  • Writing Focus: In this lesson students will learn about the different types of sentences and it's structure.

Warmer/Lead-in (1-2 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Review with the students what we've learned yesterday.

Exposure (4-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Write "What makes it a sentence?" on the board. Elicit from the students what they know about sentences. Write "I see a cat." and "A dog" on the board. Ask the students which one is a sentence. Ask them why do they think it's a sentence - It's a complete idea and it makes sense(you can understand the sentence). Ask the students what else have they noticed in the sentence - capital letters and punctuation marks. Ask the students when do they use punctuation marks.

Clarification (3-5 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Pre-teach dirty, funny, lunch, swim, pond, elephant, sweet, little, tractor, and honey using my pile, your pile game.

Semi-Controlled Practice (10-15 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Model the activity. We are going to unscramble the words to make a sentence. First, they need to look for words in the same color. Then they need to put the words together to form a sentence. After that, they need to look for the correct picture that matches the sentence. Finally, ask the students to read the sentence and copy the correct sentence on their mixed-up sentence sheet.

Free Practice (3-5 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

If students are finished with the activity, they need to come up with their own sentences and write it at the back of the "mixed-up sentences" sheet. For struggling students, they can use the picture prompts that I made. Check for capital letters, punctuation marks, and if the sentence makes sense.
