Teaching Practice 1 (TP1)
To introduce & give practice in vocabulary of classroom objects and the use of the indefinite article -a/an
Personal questions review, listening & speaking
Procedure (32-48 minutes)
I say hi and good morning to everyone and the students greet each other. Instead of "Nice to meet you" students will be instructed to say "Nice to see you" because they are meeting again. Students will walk around greeting one another with "Good morning _________, Nice to see you."
Read through the alphabet, pronouncing each letter and repeating. Then we'll join in a rousing version of the Alphabet Song.The teacher will illustrate how to ask names and get people to spell it out. Then the teacher will turn the exercise over to the students. Students ask each other "What's your name?" and "How do you spell it?" Students answer back by spelling out their names.
Student picks up a card and reads it. Then they spell the word. Another student writes it on the board. I've chosen easy words, but also words with difficult A,E,I and C,G,J,S combinations in order to test them since these letters are confusing for Turkish students when they try to spell in English
After the students have learned the new words from the Face2Face book, the teacher will have a bag of everyday objects and will hold up the object and ask the students "What's this?" They will answer "It's a/an __________." Teacher will show how to use A or AN in front of a noun and then let the students practice. The teacher will say a word like "pen", and the students have to say "A" or "AN" for which article is to be used in front of it. The teacher will put objects in a bag. A student will turn around and the teacher will put an object behind his or her back. They will guess what the object is saying "It's a/an_______!" Students will pair up and try it with each other, putting a few objects on the desk. One students asks what it is and the other one answers.
