Main Aims

  • To provide practice collocations with 'have' in the context of short conversations with the family and friends

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy in speaking skills, practice in a conversations in the context of collocations with 'have'


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

A cartoon character's picture is used to get the attention of the students, around him, three sentences are shaped with 'have' to give them a starting point for their writing practice. The character is Scrooge Mcduck. The Teacher will ask if they recognize him and encourage them to speak about his possessions, the teacher uses the students examples and write them on the WB.

Exposure (5-8 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through writing

The next step will be to give them the instruction to choose 3 people ( Who is your family, mother, father, wife, write what they have. ) and write 3 sentences about them, (with using fingers to explain how many sentences) just like they did with Scrooge Mcduck. While they are writing, the teacher walks around and makes sure they are on context. After they finish writing, the teacher askes them to exchange what they have writen with their partner and check them. Next step will making them stand up, 2 lines looking at eachother, with sound of my clapping, they tell eachother one of their sentences, with the second clapping they change a partner and tell them the second sentence and with the last clapping they change the partner ones more and use the last sentence.

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

The Ss are given HOs and asked to match the words with the pictures, listening from the tape, drilling exircise is done with the presentation on the WB, where the stress of spesific words. Then the Ss diveded in groups and they tell eachother what things they have from that list.

Productive Task(s) (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Then student are divided in pairs and with the cards provided they are asked to play 'go fishing'. Cards are created with the vocabulary of the lesson, there are 2 of the one word in one pack. They are given 4 cards each and rest of the cards (in our vocabulary today 20 cards), if they have the couple, they put it aside, if not, they say to their partner "I don't have ...., do you have.....?" If the partner has it, he/she is obligated to give it, if not, he/she says "i don't have ...., go fishing!" So the player picks a card from the pack and the firs one finishes, wins.

Feedback and Error Correction (8-10 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

The teacher play a recording to demonstrate the game. In this game the class is divided in 3-5 people groups. The first student starts with "My brother has ....." And the second goes, "My brother has .... And ....." And the last one goes "my brother has ..... And... And...." To round up one of the students has to remember all the things their group said and repeat it.
