Language focus (10-12 minutes) • Present target language and clarify meaning

- "How much is it all?" What is she asking about?(price/money) Is money countable?(no) >> We use MUCH when talking about uncountable things "How much pounds is it ?" What do you think of this question? What did she ask about?(the number of pounds) , Can we count pounds?(yes) >> We use MANY when talking about countable things. OHP: Pic of oranges and bread: What do you see? MAke a sentence using many/much starting with "There's .............. on the table". There is one word we use for both countable and uncountable nouns instead of many/much. Does anyone know? (SOME) We use some for BOTH countable and uncountable nouns. Is the sentence postive or negative? (positive) >>We use SOME with postive sentenes. Pic of empty table: Ask a question about oranges using some (write on board) Q:Are there some oranges on the table? A: There aren't some oranges on the table. Is this a positive sentence?(no) When do we use some? (positive sentences) Is some correct here? (no) >>> Introduce ANY We use ANY for negative sentences and questions. - Stick two sentences on WB : - Can/Could I have some milk, please? ( Elicit request) - Would you like/ Do you want some biscuits? (Elicit offer) Exception for questions: We use SOME for a request and an offer (Give ss Flashcard to stick on board)
