- Write the marker sentences on the board. - Ask them the CCQs about the meaning to see if they have already understood or not. - If not, draw a timeline and elicit where to put the question and ask the CCQs again. - Elicit the form by asking "How do we start"? - After eliciting "Did", put a plus and elicit the word "subject" / "you". - Put another plus after "subject" / "you" and again elicit "verb (base form)" - Choral and individual drill. Backchain drill the whole sentence.
- Pair the students into A and B. Tell them that B went on holiday to Singapore and A needs to ask questions. Then, switch roles. - Write "I went to South Korea" on the whiteboard and make them ask questions to you. - Make them write their own sentence on a piece of paper. - Take the papers and give them randomly. - Make students write 3 questions about the sentence they received. - Make them find the person who wrote the sentence they received and ask their questions. Then they move again to answer questions from other people. (Alternative: Make it a pair work and swap papers.)
