Present simple and present continuous
To provide review of the difference between present simple and present continuous through a guided discovery
To provide students with a text-based clarification lesson
Procedure (37-49 minutes)
T will project a picture of a couple in London on the WB and ask Ss questions to get them to speak and be engaged in this part and the following parts of the lesson. "Who do you think the people in this picture are?" "Where do you think they are" etc... T will tell the students that we will discover who and where they are together while listening to a recording, which will lead to the following step in this lesson
T will play the recording about the couple we saw in the picture earlier. T will ask the Ss to tick the right answers on exercise 1 while listening. That will give them a purpose to listen, will get them to focus more and to be prepared for the upcoming step. T will ask the Ss to compare and discuss their answers in pairs.
Ss will listen to the recording again and this time they will be asked to put the verbs between brackets in the correct form. Student will be asked again to discuss their answers in pairs and will be provided with the answer key
T will project a slide on the WB that contains two sentences: "Oh, yes look, it’s raining.", "It only flies when she’s at home." and elicit from the Ss the differences between the two. T will do some PRON and Drilling if necessary.
Ss will be given a HO and asked to circle the right answer. Ss will be given 4 minutes to finish the task. T will ask Ss again to discuss their answers with their partners. After that, they will be given the answer key.
Ss will be given 3 stripes of different colors, that will allow the T to divide them into 3 groups. each of the groups will be given a set of a question that they should ask and answer. One Ss should pick a paper ask the questions and the rest should take roles to answer. To make more fun and raise some competitive spirit within the class, the T will explain to the SS that the team who finishes the first will win the challenge.
