Speaking about sandwiches
Elementary level


In thius lesson the Ss are going to talk about the story of sandwiches. The lesson is mainly based on reading but my main aim is speaking. I try to personlize it as much as possible since they are very interested when they understand it and try to participate in an interesting topic like this.


No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • Speaking

Subsidiary Aims

  • useful language
  • listening


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students so they have a general idea of a lesson.

I will show them a picture of some foods and fruits that make a sandwich but don't tell them at first I ask them what do they understand of these pictures and what is the aim to show them They will understand that this lesson has something to do with foods and I try to elicit the topic. After this I show them a picture of a sandwich and ask them what is it.

Pre-teaching blocking vocabulary • To give the students the chance to understand the listening better

I put the words on the board using some pictures , I try to give them clear pictures so they don't need to worry about the the vocabulary. I also give them a HO so they can go back to it later as a reference.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

They are going to listen to an audio track about sandwiches in a few countries. They will understand that there are different ways of making a sandwiches and each place has it's own things. After they do the exercise. afterwards they check it as a pair work.

Useful Language (5-7 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

I give them the script as a HO and ask them to read it very carefully for 3 minutes. I ask them about how people make sandwiches in their own countries(the ones that are discussed in the script).

Productive Task #1 (6-9 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

I ask them about different sandwiches that they eat in Turkey and what is their favorite sandwich and why? Before this I tell them about a sandwich in my country so they have an idea of the main topic that is discussed in the class. I ask them to talk about it in their groups afterwards for 3 minutes and tell each other about their faviourite sandwich. As a WC activity I ask one or two of them to tell the class the result of teir conclusion.

Productive task #2 (8-10 minutes) • To set an activity to get to the main aim

I set the task up by using the idea provided in TP points , I tell the students that there is going to be a sandwich bar in ITI soon. and I am going to open it. I have a menu printed and have different sandwiches in it I ask them to fill it and talk about it as a group for a few minutes. After this I put my menu on the board and have a vote after this the best sandwich is nominated and the survey is complete.

Productive task #3 (3-5 minutes) • To put previous task into practice

I pretend that I opened my shop at ITI. I ask them to buy a sandwich from me and how to buy it. I model a dialogue before getting the class to do it.

IF-Time activity (5-7 minutes)

I choose a sandwich in my mind from the menu and want students to guess it. I guide them by giving them some ingredients.
