Procedure (39-51 minutes)
T starts asking questions about the previous lesson to elicit "what" and "who" question forms. Then T looks at the window and elicits weather conditions. - How is the weather today? - Do you think it is cold outside? - Do you think it is hot outside?
T shows the Discover Poster and elicits some words related to the target language. Ss read the captions and they try to answer T' s questions. - What do you see in this poster? - Are there any trees in these pictures? - What are the people doing next to the pool? - How is the weather? - What do you do on a sunny/cold/ day? - Do you see a snowman? When do you build a snowman? - What is your favourite picture and why?
T shows the picture in their Student's Book and asks the Big Question. Then T tells the Ss to watch the video and think about the question " how are seasons different?" After they watch it, they talk about the picture, they tell their ideas about seasons. They try to answer the questions in the book. - Do you like to play outside? Where? - What colour are the leaves? Why? - How many seasons do you know? - What season is it now?
T shows the pictures on the book and elicits them. Then Ss listens to the words and they repeat the words. T uses the activities from iTools to practice the words and too have fun in the class.
Ss practice the words from their workbooks and they match the words with the pictures.
Ss do the puzzle exercise in their workbooks. T asks questions to expand the topic here and to make them use the target language by giving the opposites of the words.
T asks questions to review the new words and to make them more clear for each student. To provide Ss feedback on their performance. T shows some student errors on the board and correct them with the class and encourages the good examples.
