Procedure (31-48 minutes)
This lesson is grammar , often students have old experience with this grammar lesson ,so this will easy for them to catch , but as a teacher , I need to refresh their mind and make an indirect introduction for them , this warming up is "firstly i divide class into two group , show the students 3 pictures which some of them are countable and another are uncountable , and i will ask them to put question for each sentence in the form of " is there or are there " like " is there ice cream in the picture " or " are there teachers in the picture " , every group put sentences then chosen one from the first group will ask the second group his question to say his right about the question and answer it , and the second do the same " till every group finish it's questions .
As a teacher , I will use board to clarify the meaning of countable and uncountable " In English as a language , according amounts and counting , there are two types "countable and uncountable " countable nouns are words which can be counted , They have a singular form and a plural form. They usually refer to things. Most countable nouns become plural by adding an ‘s’ at the end of the word .for examples : student ,cup , problem. we use with them " a few ,few , many" . "uncountable nouns are are words which cannot be counted. Therefore, they only have a singular form. They have no plural forms. These words are thought of as wholes rather than as parts. They usually refer to abstractions (such as confidence or advice) or collectives (such as equipment or luggage). as examples : furniture and money we use with them " much , little , a little bit of " there are some quantifiers and tools which used with each of countable and uncountable "the , some , enough , plenty of , lots of a lot of " .
EX.1 & EX.2 & EX.3 are all controlled practices , working individual then check in pairs in the same group , then choose one to say their answer .
As a teacher I will ask the students two questions , the first how can we describe countable and uncountable in a comparison way ? and the second to put one sentence contains two cases "countable and uncountable" , working in groups not individually . after finishing , let every group choose one from them to read the answers .
In this stage I will ask every group to put 3 sentences about what they see in the class using countable and uncountable nouns . working in a group not individual .
