Procedure (37-49 minutes)
I am going to show pictures of 7 natural phenonemon and ask students if the have ever experienced these weather conditions. Then i am going to give them handouts with ex 1b ask them to read and answer the queston abut these weather phenomenon.
I am going to tell students to find comon thing about the sentensec in ex 1b except they are in present simple and about weather. To support them i an going to underline superlative form of adjectives and inform about target language. The tallest clouds are cumulonimbus clouds. The world’s largest snowflake fell in 1887.
I am going to give some more axamples about fact in which superlative form of adjectives are used . The Sahara desert is the hottest place in the world. Antarctica is the coldest place in the world. Istanbul is the most beautiful city in Turkey.
I am going to draw three column on the board and explain how superlative form of adjective is formed and write more examples to clarify the taarget language• One syllable words - add “est” to the word. Remember that it is sometimes necessary to double the final consonant. Examples are: tall to tallest and big to biggest. • Two and three syllable words - use “most” or “least.” Examples include most difficult and least expensive. If information below would be unclear to students • (One syllable words ending with an “e” - only add “st” like fine to finest or rare to rarest.) • (Two-syllable words ending with a “y” - change the “y” to an “i” and add “est.” Two examples are crazy to craziest and silly to silliest. ) 1. then after a comparative is pronounced with a schwa in connected speech. “He is taller than me”: /tɔːlə ðən/. 2. as when talking about equality (or inequality) is pronounced with a schwa: “He’s not as tall as me”: /əz tɔːl əz/.
I am going to ask some CCQ questions with example of three mobile phones Big- the biggest Is this mobile phone big? Yes. Is this bigger than first one? Yes Is the third mobile phone bigger than first and the second mobile phone? Yes how do we say to show that the third is the ... among mobile phones, and ask students to do ex 3 p53
