Lead in (4-6 minutes) • To activate students' schemata

Two sentences are displayed on the board. “Footballers earn too much money.” “Teachers don’t earn enough money.” Discuss in pairs: Do you think the statements are true? Why / Why not? Are other professionals always paid enough? Ss then share their ideas with the class.

Reading Activity and Language Input (Guided Discovery) (8-12 minutes) • For Ss to clarify and review the TL.

A HO is given to Ss. They are instructed to read it quickly and get the main idea of the passage. Ss share their answers with the class. Then Ss are asked to read the text again and underline all the phrases with too many and enough. Ss are asked to read their answers. Tr writes their answer on the IWB. Tr asks Ss to outline the rules for the use of too and enough. When can we use too or enough? Discuss in pairs. Ss then share their answers with the class. Tr writes down the rules mentioned by the Ss. Tr questions Ss: What do we use to say that there is more than what is required or necessary? too / too much / too many What do we use to say that something is of the correct amount? enough What is the difference between very and too much / many? Very is used to show emphasis or stress on the degree of adjective / adverbs. Too much / many is used to show that something is mare than required. Tr checks understanding with the help of example sentences and CCQs. 1. It was too hot to go to the beach. Was it very hot? yes Does too mean more than what is needed? yes Do we use too before or after the adjective? before 2. There's enough space for everyone. Would there be space for everyone? yes Would you use enough before or after the noun? before 3. There are too many people here. Is it crowded? yes Do u use too many for countable nouns? yes Tr then drills the sentences to show the strong and weak forms in the sentences. She reads the sentences loudly and Ss repeat after her. Tr asks Ss to make sentences using too many / enough or too much and asks other Ss to repeat the sentences. Tr asks Ss to write the form of the example sentences on the IWB.
