Practice Lesson: Have to / Don't have to
To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of sports
To provide practice of "have to / don't have to" grammar in the context of sports
Procedure (36-52 minutes)
- Students will do a handout where they match the sport to the picture. This will set context and give them sports vocabulary for the practice stages
- I will write sentences on the board: I have a good job. I have to work hard. We will drill the pronunciation of these sentences so that students will be able to practice the grammar correctly in the future stages.
Students will choose a sport from the box on the handout but not share it with anyone else. They will have a list of questions that others will ask them to find out what sport they chose. The questions on the handout provide good yes or no questions they can use to guess the sport of their partners. Students will mingle around the room and discover the sports of 3 different people.
-Write incorrect sentences on the board and have students correct them
I will provide a handout with questions where the students can dialogue in pairs about obligatory requirements in sports. For which sports do you have to run fast? For which sports do you have to be very strong? For which sports do you have to wear special clothes? Which sports have a ball? Which sports are the hardest? Why? Because you have to _________ Which sports are the easiest? Why? Because you have to _________
- Share incorrect phrases or sentences that I heard and correct together as a class, ask further CCQ's if needed for clarification or reminders
Students will work in groups to write a paragraph. They will write about what is the best sport and why. They have to decide as a group what is the best sport and only one person can write. The students must use "have to / don't have to" at least one time in their writing.
Write incorrect sentences from the activity that surround the activity and have students correct.
