Procedure (37-46 minutes)
T will start the class off by having a song being played whilst everyone is walking in, it will be a lyric video song with the words which contain the present continous being highlighted. This might catch the SS attention, and they should get a slight understanding of the topic if they pay attention. Then T will casually speak sentences using the present continous form and ask SS to tell her what they did yesterday or were doing last night. Instruct SS to talk to their partners and tell eachother what they did last night. This is to see if they are using the Past simple tense correctly and to get them practicing on the tense as it will be useful for the past continous tense. They then should tell the class about what their partner did last night.
Get the SS to do GW. Hand out a different time (clock) for each table. They wll have to talk to eachother about what they were doing last saturday.(using the past simple tense) Then they will move on to telling the class about their event and a group friends event.
2 Ss at a time will get up and both perform different actions. While they've shown their examples they will take a seat The T will ask the Ss to discuss it and create a sentence 2 students who get it correct will then do the same exercise
