Procedure (41-58 minutes)
Ask the students their interests and hobbies. Ask if they do them at home or not. Show them the HO. Tell them to tick the hobbies if they can do it at home and put a cross if they can not. Give them the list of hobbies. They will look in pairs, Elicit the hobbies they don't know. (Pottery, Stargazing etc.)
Now, try to engage the Ss to the core context that will be used in the lesson. Give an ex. Pottery(show pic.) Pottery is my hobby. Can I do it at home? No. What do I need? Workshop. (If they don't understand show pic.) Now, tell them; But what if I am rich! Imagine that you are rich! And you can have anything at your home for your hobbies etc. Put pics of big houses on the board. Ask their opinions about the houses. Elicit: Expensive, rich. What do we need to buy such a house? Lots of money/rich. Today we will talk about our dream homes! Show the pictures and elicit the words Ballroom, workshop, tower
Give the Ss HO1. Let them work in pairs and fill the blanks. Peer-check
Stage 1: Write on the board: My Top 5 / Next 5 / That's OK/ Thanks I don't want it. Ask the students What would you have in your dream home? Look at the vocabulary list. (Be sure that they know the words. Elicit anything they do not know.) Make a list. Give them 6-7 mins.
Stage 2: Now, tell them to look at their lists and tell you some words. I.e My top 5 A ballroom. Ask: Why would you have a ball room? Why would you have a workshop? answer: I would have a workshop because I love repairing things I would have a gym because I like doing sports. At this point. Clarify would+v1. Is it a fact now? No Is it real? No Do I have enough money? No Show the pronunciation. /wʊd/ Drill it. Give the contraction. Drill it. Use finger highlighting if needed. I am imagining that I am rich. (Do not give the second conditional as a whole. Give would as a chunk/vocabulary. Tell the meaning. Do not give an if clause.) Make sure that they understand. Because I love etc.....
Now let them discuss their lists. Make them pairs and ask each other about the lists. I would have .... I would buy..... I want ...... Why would you have... Why would you buy... Why do you want.... And explain reasons to each other. Swap the pairs. Let them practice more.

Try to make it charming and interesting. Exaggerate! Not:a swimming pool. But:There is a swimming pool, you can enjoy it whenever you want etc. Then stick them on the board. Let the students look at them and choose the best one.
