To provide clarification and practice of housework words in the context of family
Procedure (31-50 minutes)
I will write 'housework' on the board and ask the students about its meaning showing the two words in it (house and work). I will ask them to give me some example of the possible tasks and then to discuss with their partner about what do they do or not in their home so I have an idea of the vocabulary they already know. Then I will ask some of them to tell me about their partner.
I will show them pictures of flat, barbecue and help for them to guess the meaning of this words. Then I will write them on the board and drill the pronounciation.
I will give them 20 seconds to read the text to have catch key words and guess its main idea. Once the text hidden, they will share their ideas with a partner and write a sentence. They can switch partners if we have time
I will explain and show an example : "I will say a word and you will look for it in the text. Once you saw it, you raise your hand and say 'I found it !'. The first one will read the sentence in witch the word I said have been seen. If it is true, I start again with another word . If it's not true, I ask another person.
I will give then a handout with True or false sentences about the text. They must tick or correct them. Then check their answers with a partner while I will write the answers on the board. I will then ask some students to correct the questions 1, 3, 5, 7.
I will ask the students to write about their families when they were young. Who was cooking, cleaning, working? I will ask if anyone wants to read his text and ask them to switch their text with a partner to correct it and discuss about it.
