Infer yes/no questions with "Do/does" by showing the students pictures of daily activities with a question mark. Students ask the yes/no questions from each other to elicit yes/no answers. Show pictures of a third person to elicit the sentence and the related yes/no questions from the students. Feedback. MFP.
Divide the students into two groups. Give each group some cards with a particular color on which a word is written. The members of each group should put the cards in order to make semantically and syntactically correct sentences. The group that finishes soon is the winner. Feedback.
Divide the students into two groups as "A" and "B". Each group members receive a piece of paper on which some yes/no questions about their daily activities are written. The students complete the questions using auxiliary verb "do" with an appropriate verb. Put the students in pairs; one from each group ask the questions from each other and check the boxes in the second column. The students give more information to answer the questions. The students mingle around and tell each other about their partner. Feedback
Put the students into pairs, A and B. Write the first sentence from student A's worksheet on the board and elicit the positive and negative form of the verb in the bracket by pointing at two students and saying the sentence. Students think about true sentences about their partners without facing each other. They face each other and ask and answer questions about the sentences on the worksheet. They put tick if their sentence is correct and cross if their sentence is incorrect. They mingle around to tell each other about their partners. Feedback
Show the students what you do in your free time and the students say the sentences. Ask the students to talk about their free time activities in pairs. Repair them if possible. Students tell each other about the free time activities. They mingle around and tell other students about their partner.
The teacher gives the students feedback during the activities. The errors are corrected using peer correction and hot error correction techniques.
