HO : Teacher tells students to look at the picture of the 5 kids, each kid will be defining something. So listen carefully and take your notes. ICQS : What do yo do ?, How many things are you listening for? (5), Are the kids describing them? (yes,) FB: T- will write 1-5 on the WB and have students come up and write them. Then as a WC will go over the answers.
Teacher asks Ss to define 4 things on the list that kids didn't describe. They imagine that they are four years old children they work in pairs or groups . Each groups will pick a word ( a vet , autumn, a desert, a jungle ) and then they try to define its as a four years old child. Each group will tell the define to others and they try to guess what is the definition.
Meaning : We use relative clauses to give additional information about something without starting another sentence. By combining sentences with a relative clause, your text becomes m3ore fluent and you can avoid repeating certain words. You can omit relative pronouns if it's the object of the verb. But ypo can't omit it if it's the subject of the verb. who : subject or object pronoun for people. Ex : A robber is a person. He takes toys a way Form :A robber is a person who takes toys a way. which :subject or object pronoun for animals and things. Ex : Iceberg is a place. Iceberg is very cold. Form :Iceberg is a place which is very cold. That : subject or object pronoun for people, animals and things in defining relative clauses (who or which are also possible). Ex : A robber is someone. He is in the middle of night. Form :A robber is someone that's in the middle of night. Ex : Iceberg is a sort of a big piece of ice. It cracks off a bigger piece. Form : Iceberg is asort of a big piece of ice that cracks off a bigger piece. Pronunciation : Teacher elicits it from Ss . Then she reads sentences for Ss and they repeat it.
