Procedure (75-86 minutes)
Ss are given a HO, based on what they have learnt in the previous class.. They are to unscramble sentences and add adverbs of frequency. They work individually. The Hos are collected and then the answers are discussed.
Ss are divided in groups of three. They are given one task at a time. Once they complete the task successfully, they are given another task. Ss are to complete five tasks. Once the race ends, whole class feedback and error correction is done.
Ss are given HO with adverbs of frequency. They are to construct meaningful sentences using the adverbs. Peer correction and whole class feed back is done.
Students play a game in groups of three. They are to asks questions to each other using adverbs of frequency. Once they complete the game, WCFB is done.
Ss are given a HO with phrases. They are to form question and answers using the phrases and adverbs of frequency. They are to work in groups of 3. They are encouraged to make a note of the question and answers. They are also encouraged to form sentences in the negative form. The questions and answers are then discussed in class.
Ss form a circle. Ss are given a ball. The first person to start the game will ask a question. For example, How often do you go to the gym? Once the S asks the question, he/she passes the ball to the person they have directed the question to. The next S answers the question and asks another question and throws the ball to the S the question is directed to. Ss can also ask another S to answer in the negative form. The game is played till all Ss have got a chance to give an answer and ask a question. This activity is used to review/recap adverbs of frequency.
