Procedure (32-45 minutes)
Students will be divided into two groups and will play tic-tac-toe on the board by matching given verbs and preposition and creating a meaningful sentence. For each correct answer their team gets an O or an X.
A display of photos of people in a type of action which can be described by using phrasal verbs has been prepared and students will look at the pictures and call out the type of action they're seeing. Hopefully, students are able to call out most of phrasal verbs targeted today.
The meaning, use and form of phrasal verbs will be given to students and in most cases will be elicited, if possible. Separable and inseparable phrasal verbs situations will be given as well.
Class will be divided in 3 groups and each group will receive 3 phrasal verbs. 1 of the phrasal verbs is active and has more than 4 verb-preposition combination and the other 2 are less so. Students will be asked to find the most verb-preposition combinations they can and then we'll check for meaning and write sentences.
In case there is time left, students will find the opposites of the phrasal verbs they've come up with.
