Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Firstly I will draw the word (Habit) on the whiteboard and after knowing the meaning I'll ask them about their daily habit, I'll use the target language while speaking.

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

in this part, we going to listen to an audio of people speaking about their daily routine and I'll ask Ss about what kind of habits that people speak about in the video after the audio ends I'll ask if they want to listen again to the audio? if one person says one more time I'll play it again, after that I'll discuss with them about audio.

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

in this part, I'm going to illustrate the form of the present simple on the whiteboard positive and negative form, n the present simple 3rd person singular (he, she, it), add s, es, or ies to the base form of the verb. To regular verbs just add an s – Ex: travel >travels, give > gives, play >plays To verbs that end in s, ss, sh, ch, x, and o, add an es – Ex: wash > washes, mix > mixes, go >goes To verbs end in y after a consonant (any letter that isn’t a vowel), change the y to i and add es. Ex: study > studies, fly > flies. and then say when do we use the past simple tense? We use the present simple tense to express the following ideas: To state facts or general truths To express habits or customs To relate future plans (often regarding programs and timetables) To tell jokes and stories or to report sporting events in real time.

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

I'll ask Ss to write about their daily habits and then put them in pairs to know each other answers and ask one of them to tell me about his partner habits, and then I'll rearrange the class to switch places and make a new pairs and ask them to tell a funny story that happened to his partner, in the end I'll ask some of them to tell me about his partner story and I'll see if they had any mistakes on the structure of the sentence.

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

after knowing all the common mistakes in the class, I'll correct Ss mistakes and drill them, and I'll write some sentences on the whiteboard and ask some of them to fill the gaps.
