Present simple (he,she,it) questions and short answers
Beginners A1 level
To provide clarification of the present simple with questions in the context of week routines
To provide deduction listening practice using a text about a conversation between Carol, Nadine and Tom in the context of week routines
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation based on questions in the context of week routines
Procedure (45-46 minutes)
I will show a picture of Nadine and write her week routines to elicit the verbs from the students such as: she goes, lives, studies and works. Afterwards, I will show them picture of (when, where, what) drill them and describe them with gestures.
I am going to abstract some sentences from the listening that they will listen to in the vocabulary lesson part.
I will give students cut up sentences that highlight the difference between the use of 'does' and 'do'. Students will be divided into 2 groups and will have 3 minutes to make the sentences in order. One from each group will go to the board and stick the sentences in their correct order and deduce the basis
I will clarify the present simple with questions on the board as far as its form, pronunciation and meaning are concerned. I will drill the sentences and use the finger techniques for the 's'. Then, I will write on the board a sentences students have to complete it. Students will listen and repeat (CD2 30) to drill the pronunciation. I will give them a handout in which they will have to put a circle on the stressed words while listening to another record (CD2 31) then have a feedback.
Students will work in pairs and answer questions about Luke and Claire in the handout 3 to practice the language they studied. After, each pair will check with another pair. Then as last activity, students will be divided into group A and group B. they will have the same questions task but the answer is different. I will ask them to work in pairs, AB, AB. As ask the Bs and both answers are going to be different.
