Family Members
All Together 2 level

Description

In this lesson, students learn family vocabulary through presentation, practice and production. The lesson starts with a warm-up song, followed by checking prior knowledge on family members vocabulary as the lead-in and to further provide a context for the target language. Family members are presented with flashcards, in addition to a PPT. In order to highlight and clarify the target language, a family tree is presented. To concept check further and prepare students for the freer practice, students are asked to talk about their families. To provide students with free practice of the target language, students draw their own family trees, and each student is expected to introduce their family members with simple sentence structures.

Procedure

Warmer/Lead-in (10-15 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Greetings and Warmup Mingle Activity - Sit in a circle with the students, introduce yourself, include your name, age, nationality. Full sentences. If students are familiar with more sentence structures, you can include those as well. You can use a ball to make this activity a little more appealing to the kinesthetic learners in the class. My name is _____. I am __ years old. I am from ______. Each student gets 30 seconds to a minute to talk about themselves. Before moving on to the presentation of family lexis, in order to concept check prior knowledge, students are asked about their families. The goal is to elicit immediate family members; mother, father, sister, brother. Considering that AT2 level students have already finished MIDI series, they should be able to identify immediate family members.

Exposure (15-20 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a PPT, and to practice the target language with flashcards.

A Family Members PPT is presented to students, the PPT should include a fictional or real family in order to provide context for the lesson. Four new family members are introduced through a PPT, with choral and individual drilling of each word as: "a daughter" "a son" "an aunt" "an uncle" Flashcard games to practice the target language. (Should not take more than 5 to 10 minutes combined) Followed by the further practice of the vocabulary with full sentences, and flashcards. "This is the daughter." "This is the son." "This is the aunt." "This is the uncle."
