Lesson Plan- TP2 Fatma Amal Mechdene
By the end of the lesson, students will have practiced speaking about and describing past habits through the use of the structure "used to+ verb"
- to practise recognizing words in a listening and putting them in the correct place
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
show students pictures of kids in a school playground and have them discuss in pairs what it is about and when they think it was taken.
- students will listen to the song for the first time - ask them to fill in the gaps on the worksheet with words in ex 1-b - pair check - put the answers on the whiteboard - students listen to the song a second time and are asked how does the singer feel about his school days? (happy - sad - in between?) what are the expressions in the song that show this? - group people with the same answer and let them discuss - write the expression " we used to laugh a lot" and "we used to cry a lot" on the board
if I say I used to smoke , am I referring to the present, the past or the future? what do I mean? CCQs: - did I smoke in the past? - do I smoke now? - did I do it once or regularly? Using the example in the analysis box, contrast the use of the simple past and used to (meaning, form, pronunciation) instructions: - the purpose of this task is to help you understand the difference between the use of the simple past and used to - you are going to work in pairs (with 1 group of 3 students if number is odd) to compare the examples in the analysis box p 18 (show them before letting them look at their own workshees) - you don't have to write anything down - For example, if I say I used to play jumping rope everyday, what do you think it describes? a single ...., or reaaa......, or .................................... - you have 2 minutes to do this. ICQs: are you going to write anything down? are you going to decide in pairs? How much do you have?
students will be asked to look at pictures and clues page 19 and write 3 sentences using "used to" and 3 sentences using still and no longer/anymore demonstrate give 1 sentence for each do not forget ICQs
ss will play 2 truths 1 lie game. they will work in pairs for 5 minutes, each student will write down 3 statements about what they used to do when they were young and the other student has to decide which 2 statements are true and which one is false.
