Countable-Uncountable nouns & quantity expressions
To review concepts of countable/uncountable nouns & quantity expressions by giving students controlled practice in this area.
To provide speaking practice on the subject of eating habbits using quantity expressions.
Procedure (27-35 minutes)
I will ask the students to count their personal materials. And then I will start with CCQ; e.g. Zehra wants to buy three pencils. What Zehra want to bye? etc.
Then the students will be asked to prepare a party shopping list, discussing and agreeing what they need ( e.g. We must get eight bottles of lemonade, two kilos of flour). In this way, I will introduce them the countable/uncountable nouns as well as the quantity expressions. Later on, I will draw two columns on the board; the one will represent the countable nouns the other the uncountable ones. A set of word cards will be given to the students so they should stick up them in the appropriate column
At this stage the students will learn the quantity expressions. A worksheet will be given where they should complete questions with "many" or "much". A vocabulary exercise will introduce collocations related to containers and other types of quantifiers.
A revision will be followed and short dialogues will help the students to comprehend the quantifiers better
