Procedure (3446 minutes)
Tell class we are going to do a reading about numbers 11 and above and introduce numbers 1120 through the use of flash cards.
Students will be split into pairs and given flash cards with numbers eleven to twenty and will be asked to put the numbers in order. This will be followed by whole class feedback on the correct order.
Teacher will stick larger flash cards of numbers 1120 on the board in a random order and will call on individual students to write the corresponding numeral next to a card and pronounce the number. Task can be repeated if needed to allow everyone to take part.
Teacher will tell students that he will read out several numbers above 20 and that they are expected to write down the corresponding numeral. Students should check their answers with their immediate neighbours. Then elicit feedback by reading the numbers again and calling students to individually write the numeral on the board. If time allows, focus on pronunciation of more difficult, similarsounding numbers, eg. 13/30, 14/40 etc.
Teacher will write the words "lucky" and "unlucky" on the whiteboard and then introduce both concepts using visual aids and drawing pictures on the board. Teacher will differentiate between luck as a noun and lucky as adjective, and unlucky as adjective and bad luck as noun.
Students will be given handout with brief text on lucky and unlucky numbers and asked to read the text and talk about their ideas in pairs.
Students will be asked to discuss with the whole class around the concepts of lucky and unlucky, for eg., about things or numbers in Turkey that are thought to bring luck or bad luck
Organise students into pairs and get one student to dictate 5 numbers between 20100. The other student has to write the numbers down and then check then check them. Students then swap roles if time allows.
