Pre-teach vocabulary (lucky, unlucky, sequence, common) using pictures, ICQs and gestures.
Write the numbers from the reading (8,3,13) on the WB and ask Ss to guess what significance the numbers might have. Ss discuss it in pairs. Ss read the text and check their predicitions in 2-3 minutes.
Ask Ss to read the text again and underline the examples: -of a common number in religion -of a lucky number -of an unlucky number -of a number in a sequence. Write the task on the WB.
Ask the Ss to hold a questionnaire and find out in class: Are there special numbers in your culture? What are they? Do you have your lucky/ unlucky nmber? What is it? Give them the prepared cards. Monitor unobtrusively. Collect some errors with the “be verb” and do delayed error correction on the WB after the task.
Play 'Bingo'. Explain the Ss the rules of the game (they should cross the numbers that are pronounced). The first person to get all of a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally yells out Bingo!!!! :)
