Copy of Quantifiers
To make Ss learn how to use a grammar lesson on Quantifiers with countable and un countable nouns
Reading which involves some Voc. along with gist listening, and some writing at the end for the productive section of the lesson
Procedure (41-57 minutes)
T plays a short, funny video clip about C/ UC nouns and quantifiers to refresh Ss memories on this topic. T elicits the words: Noun, countable, un countable, quantifiers using CCQ: Where are they? What are they doing? Which items are they using? Can we count them? how? Then Ss do the test individually, a gap fill hand out about Food Facts and then pair check. They must use the words in a box projected on the board. A listening audio will be played to give the correct answers. T gets the FB as Wc and answers will be projected on the board.
Ss underline the nouns in the text. T writes them on the board. Ss clarify which ones are countable or uncountable. Then Ss are put into 2 group, making 2 lines, picking up pieces of papers with the quantifiers on them. They take turn to put them in the appropriate place with the nouns on board. T corrects the answers as WC. In the second part of the presentation, 4 pairs of sentences including some confusing quantifiers will be projected, and Ss in pairs should try to clarify their meanings and the differences. CCQ: Is the meaning of the quantifier here + or - ? FB will be with WC. T brings a realia, A measuring Tape and asks Ss: What is this and why do we use it? T elicits Measure. Then T puts the tape on the board and asks the Ss to come to the board randomly and put the quantifiers in the correct order from top to down beside the measuring tape. FB as WC
The text is introduced by asking: What kind of person is it written for? The hand out with alternative choices will be given to the Ss to gist read it, ignoring all the alternatives. They should decide if it is good advice for a Lazy Cook. Then they will complete the activity in pairs, emphasizing to them that they should explain their answers. T gets FB as a WC and elicits explanation.
The page for this practice will be projected on the board. T first gives an example sentence about herself, then she asks a couple of Ss to change it so that it is true for them. Check if Ss understand all the voc. Ss make their sentences individually and then check their answers with a partner. T gets FB by nominating some of the Ss. The second practice is a writing task. Ss in pairs are given different topics. They must prepare a similar advice sheet used in the controlled practice about their topic. T helps Ss with voc. or other problems. Ss will mingle and present their list to others. T monitors.
