Elementary A1 level
To provide scan and detailed reading practice using a text about daily routine in the context of a famous actor's life style.
To provide clarification and practice of daily routine in the context of a famous person's life syle.
Procedure (38-52 minutes)
I will write letters of the alphabet on the board (between 10 and 15 is a good number). Omit letters like Q or X. Ask groups to find one word for each letter of the alphabet and have them write down the words they found. Checking Understanding What will you write? How many words will you write from each letter? Give them one minute or two. Have your watch ready and call out as time ticks away (‘1 minute, 30 seconds, 5 seconds’, etc.); tell them to stop writing when time is up. Ask each group to count their words. Ask each group how many words they found. Have the group with the most words start with reading out some words, as you write their answers on the board, behind the letters. Ask the other students to knock on their desk if they have the same word. This encourages active listening. You may want to have the class check whether the words are correctly spelled (that is: beginning letter) and whether they fit the category (or do it yourself, if too time consuming). Fill in gaps behind letters with words from other groups.
I will introduce the daily routine vocabualry (the ones from face to face SB on page 22). We will mime it too. Then give a matching activity and there pairs will check then check it as a w/c. Also we will talkabout the picture shown on the reading text. What can they see in the picture? Is an actor 's life interesting? If I have enough time I will get the SS match the vocabualry with times of the day by writing them on the board and categorising them. SS will come and write under them.
I wil put ss into groups or pairs and guess what an actor's life is like and get FB without confirming. Then I will tell SS to scan read the text in pairs to see if there ideas were correct. Peer check then w/c FB.
will give SS T/F statements individually. Then in pairs get them check the answer. Then as I whole class correct the false one.
I will get general FB on the reading-are they surprised about an actor's life,is it exciting etc.
