Lesson Plan TP 4
By the end of the lesson, students will have practised reading for specific information in the context of favourite seasons.
Students will practise controlled speaking, listening for gist and revise months and seasons vocabulary.
Procedure (45 minutes)
Show a picture of a young girl outdoor at different times of the year. How many squares do you see? Are they different? What are the names of these periods?
Put coloured sheets with months and seasons on the floor and ask the students to order them. Show a picture of a woman sunbathing. Where is she? Is she working? What is she doing? Show a picture of a man water skiing. Where is he? Is he riding a bicycle? What is he doing? Show a picture of people sailing. Are they on the water? Are they in a tuk tuk? What are they doing?
Give students handout #1 with pictures of seasons and questions. Tell the students to answer the questions and to work alone. Demonstrate with a student. ICQ: are you speaking? are you working with your someone else? Students write the answers and then check their answers in pairs. Provide feedback on the board.
Divide the class in groups of three. Give the students handout #2. Arrange three "stations" in the classroom, one for each character. Each team member will be responsible for providing the answers for either Daniella, Sumalee or Axel. Students can't take the handouts with them. The correct answers will be on the wall in the corridor. When they are done, tell the students to go there and check their answers. Play "Singin' in the Rain" while they check their answers.
Give the students handout #3. Demonstrate on the board using a sentence about yourself with a few mistakes eg Raphaël comes from Cambodia. He lives in Siem Reap and teaches at ACE. Correct the mistakes. Set the students in pairs. Check instructions (are you working alone, is the sentence correct). Provide feed back on the board.
Tell the students to listen to the audio extract. Tell them to find the answers to the following questions: – Is it Daniella, Sumalee or Axel? – Where are they? – How do you know? Tell them to work in pairs. Check instructions: are you writing? are you working alone? Tell them to discuss their answers. Provide feedback on the board.
Tell students to write about their favourite season and explain why. Tell them to discuss with their partner.
