Procedure (36-46 minutes)
Put pictures around the room and ask the Ss to walk around and think of what those pictures describe.
Give the Ss a pile of two types of sentences: one for rooms and another for the activity we do in those rooms and ask them to match the rooms with what we do in them.
Show Ss different pictures of the TL and try to elicit the answers from them. The words to learn are: a record, round, bubble, a rug, a fireplace, flats, curtains.
First I will ask them about the different rooms in the pictures and try to elicit answers. I'll give them the text and the questions then ask them to read it. I'll show them how to fold the questions sheet and I'll demonstrate carefully how they should answer the first exercise. After making sure that they understood through ICQs, I'll let them work individually. I'll ask them to unfold the paper and look at the second task, I'll demonstrate carefully by asking a student then between 2 students then ask them to work in pairs. I'll provide feedback by focusing on the "False" answers by asking why they are false. I'll give them a second hand-out with the third task where we practice the "Is there a/Are there..." questions. I'll demonstrate by asking a student about Cyril's house then between 2 students then I'll ask them to work in pairs. I'll monitor closely to check if there are any mistakes.
I'll ask them about what they think of Cyril's home, what they like about it and what they dislike about it. I need to demonstrate this carefully, so I have to first ask the question to one student then between 2 students then let them work in pairs and ask about each other's opinion regarding the house. Change pairs. Ask them to talk about their perfect house.
