A typical day
Beginner (A1) level
To provide clarification of everyday activities in the context of a typical day
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of daily routines
Procedure (35-44 minutes)
Greets the students briefly. After a while, ask: "what time is it?" Then ask: "what time does the class start?" (If needed the times are boarded to elicit 'past' and 'to' from the students.)
Direct students' attention to the board and show them the first slide. Then, ask: "what time is it?" After eliciting a correct response, go on to ask what you do at that particular time and call for some answers. Once the correct response is elicited, ask for a choral drill "get up". Repeat the same procedure with Slides 2 - 8. In the end, review the slides and ask for complete sentences e.g. I/You get up at 7.
Hand out HO1 and instruct students to do a project in groups. Each group has to place the cut-ups in order to complete Carol's daily routine. Model the task for the students and give them a 5-minute time limit to complete the task. Once the students are done, ask a member of each group to stand up and stick the A3 paper onto the board. Then, students should stand up and check their friends work to see whether there are any problems with it. Get feedback and resolve problem areas.
Show slide 9. Elicit what the rows show and what the words in the box are. They should find the time of the day we do each activity. Hand out HO2 and tell the students to complete the table in 2 minutes. Get feedback by asking students to come to the board and write the answers.
Show slide 10. Ask students to make some notes about their daily routine for 2 minutes. Start with an example. Hand out HO3. Once they are done, ask them to stand up and talk to someone. They should find three people with similar daily routines as theirs.
