Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

students will listen to the listening two times to fill out the gaps on parts a & b and maybe a third time for them to check. I won't be asking students the questions in the listening. they will check their answers with the key on WB.

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

via HO with the spelling instructions written on them, the grammar and spelling will be clarified.

Productive Task(s) (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

ss will be handed another HO they have to write the words with correct dictation and the 1st group done it will be the winner, also another practice will be given to them so they have to write correct answers using like+v+-ing structure

Feedback and Error Correction (8-10 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

I will move around the class take note of ss' possible mistakes and when the other task is over I will right the mistakes on the WB. For the correction I try to engage ss to correct the mistakes (if they can).
