Procedure (38-49 minutes)
-T will put up picture on the WB of a family celebrating a birthday -T will then ask Ss questions regarding the picture and try to elicit from them some ideas - Some ideas the T will try to elicit from Ss if they are a family, celebrating a birthday, guesses on the age of the people, if they look happy and maybe their relations to each other.
-A text relating to the image will be given to the Ss. -The text will contain some of the vocabulary which the Ss will be learning in the lesson. -This will provide them with a context for the target language. -Ss will be told to quickly read the text and then in pairs discuss some of the words which are underlined.
-Ss will be given a vocab matching exercise to draw attention to the TL. -Before the worksheets are handed out, T will explain that they must match the correct adjectives to the pictures in pairs. -Use ICQs if necessary. ICQs: Do we work in pairs or alone? -While Ss are working on the exercise, T will monitor class. -When the Ss finish the task, the answers will be checked as a whole class.
-The T will go through the vocab from the previous exercise with the Ss -Meaning and form will be shown by writing the words on the WB and eliciting meaning from Ss. -This will be followed by pronunciation of the words, with particular attention to the pronunciation of friendly /ˈfrend.li/, crowded /ˈkraʊ.dɪd/, interesting /ˈɪn.trəs.tɪŋ/, dirty /ˈdɜː.ti/ and quiet /ˈkwaɪ.ət/
-T will explain to students the exercise. -Ss must read the sentences which contain 3 adjectives and a noun. -They will have to cross out the adjective which is incorrect. The first example will be done with the whole class and the teacher demonstrating on the board. -T will monitor as the class work. -Fb will be checking in pairs and then with the T as a whole class.
-Before giving out the worksheet, T will explain that Ss must complete the blanks using the jumbled words and also write the opposites of the words. -T will monitor as Ss work. -Fb will be peer checking each others work.
-Ss will be given cut-outs of the vocab and their opposites. -T will explain that they must then find the student with the opposite meaning of their word and pair up with them. -Once paired, T will explain that they must talk to each other about a birthday of theirs using the vocab and then write a sentence for each word. -T will monitor as Ss work. -Fb will be in the form of the Ss speaking to the class about what their word was and reading out their sentences.
