Teaching Practice #8
To present and practice clothing and colour vocabulary.
To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a role-play in the context of clothes and shopping.
Procedure (35-47 minutes)
T holds up flash cards with different items of clothing (jeans, shorts, scarf, dress etc). T points to her own clothes and asks what coulour they are (boots-green, jacket-black, scarf-gold). T asks would you wear a scarf on a snowy day? YES. T asks would you wear shorts on a snowy day? NO.
Teacher gives flashcards to the students with words related to clothing vocabulary. They should stick them on the wall where, to match them with photos of clothes. Then in pairs they should find the the colour names in a matching exercise. Teacher gives them 5 minutes.
The students sit back to back and try to guess what their partner is wearing today. E.g. You are wearing a scarf, a hat, and red sweater.
The teacher asks them to make a circle. She throws a ball to each of them to say "What are you wearing today?" and "What colour are your clothes?"
Fashion show Students walk up and down the middle of the classroom as if it is a catwalk while other people take turns describing what is being worn in a stereotypically fashion show style, e.g. “Hulya is wearing a red skirt a T-shirt”. Students can describe what people are wearing. Students who are watching and listening could listen out for inaccuracies.
