Mami lesson -Quantifier
upper-intermediate level

Description

In this lesson, Ss learn about quantifiers through guided discovery based on an exercise about food. The lesson starts by showing Ss a picture of a girl drinking water and beneath it a wrong sentence by using many instead of much. Ss will correct the sentence and will understand that the lesson is about quantifiers. This is followed by an exercise about food. Ss must out the appropriate quantifier in the gap. The teacher asks his Ss to work in pairs and later they will check the answers by listening to the audio. After that, the teacher shows his Ss a pic of burgers and salt under and ask one student to write whats in the first picture. the student will write burgers then the teacher asks why did you add S to the burger, and the students will answer because it is countable.The teacher writes salt and adds S to it the Ss will disagree with it since it is uncountable, so the teacher will ask Ss to go back to exercise and point out to the food which is countable and uncountable. In the following exercise, the teacher will divide the class into 3 groups then, he asks his Ss if the quantifiers in the exercise used with C, U or both CU and he does the first example in front of them. The teacher will give every group 3 piece of paper and ask them to write it on the board under the right column. in the next activity, the teacher divides the class into A and B and he asks them to work as partners A and B together and discuss the differences between some sentences. After 3 minutes, As must find their matches and Bs the same and discuss their opinion about the task. After that, the teacher takes the feedback from the WC. In the following activity Ss will work in pairs choose the best quantifiers to complete the task then the teacher will take the feedback from them and clarify when it needs.The final activity, the teacher divides the class into 4 groups and ask each group to pick up a paper which has a question and go back to their groups and write advice about it by using the quantifiers after that, the teacher will take the feedback from each group.

Main Aims

  • To provide review and practice of quantifiers in the context of food.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide practice and review of food lexis in the context of food

Procedure

Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

To engage Ss by showing a picture of a girl drinking water and beneath it a wrong sentence by using many instead of much. Ss will correct the sentence and will understand that the lesson is about quantifiers.

Test #1 (7-8 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

T project an exercise about food on the board, then ask Ss to put the appropriate quantifier in the gap. Give Ss the handouts and ask them to do it in 3 minutes with their partner. After that, play the audio to let the Ss check their answers. write the answers on the board if the Ss couldn't catch all answers.

Teach (15-20 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

To shows the Ss a pic of burgers and salt under and ask one student to write what is in the first picture. The student will write burgers then the teacher asks why did you add S to the burger, and the students will answer because it is countable. The teacher writes salt and adds S to it the Ss will disagree with it since it is uncountable, so the teacher will ask Ss to work with their partner and, go back to exercise and point out to the food which is countable and uncountable. In the following exercise, the teacher will divide the class into 3 groups then, he asks his Ss if the quantifiers in the exercise used with C, U or both CU and he does the first example in front of them. The teacher will give every group 3 piece of paper and ask them to write it on the board under the right column. in the next activity, the teacher divides the class into A and B and he asks them to work as partners A and B together and discuss the differences between some sentences. After 3 minutes, As must find their matches and Bs the same and discuss their opinion about the task. After that, the teacher takes the feedback from the WC

Test #2 (8-10 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

To ask Ss to work in pairs and choose the best quantifiers to complete the task then take the feedback from the students and clarify when it needs.

Free practice (13-15 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

To divide the class into 4 groups and ask each group to pick up one piece of paper which has a question and go back to their groups and write advice about it by using the quantifiers. After that, take the feedback from each group.
