Elicit the meaning of some vocabularies from the reading passage by showing the students some pictures on the board and ask them to come to the board (indiviually/in raw) and match the words with the pictures. Then check the meaning using CCQs. Drill chorally and individually and write on the WB.
Ask the students to read the questions and then read the passage and answer the questions by finding which member of the family is doing this and explain the answers. Then the students check in pairs. And then the teacher gets the feedback by giving the students the answers on a paper.
