Procedure (13-21 minutes)
I will stand up, then I'll walk towards the window asking the students to come with me to see the view then I'll describe what I see for example (this boy is walking, this bird is flying, this man is fishing....etc) then I'll back to my seat asking them to back to their seats too.
I will ask one of the students to come and sit behind me, then I will say stand up while in the same time standing up myself, indicating with a gesture that the student should do the same. then I say walk then I walk across the room, also indicating to the student to do the same. then I will repeat this process with different instructions(stop, turn around, sit down). then I repeat it again but with describing what I'm doing and ask them to repeat after me. Finally I ask the students to back to their seats.
In this stage I will ask one of the student to stand up and to do the process of the previous stage but alone, I will just give instructions. I ask her/him to stand up then I ask her/him to walk then to stop then to turn around ...etc. But while she/he is walking I will ask her to describe what she/he is doing right now saying what are you doing right now to say:"I am walking", then I write the sentence on the board with highlighting verb to be (am) and the (ing) using a different marker. after this, I will ask another student to describe what she/he is doing now to say:"She is walking", then I write the sentence. then I ask two students to repeat the same process to learn them how to use we and they, that is when I ask them to describe what they are doing following this by asking the rest of the students about what the two students are doing. finally, I write the last two sentences.
I will ask a CCQs like is she walking right now or in the past or in the future?, to make sure that they understand the meaning. After this I will try to elicit the form from the students through indicating to the sentences that is already written on the board in the present continuous, then I write it on the board.
I will give them an activity asking them to choose the right answer, and while they are solving it I'll be monitoring them. after they finish the activity I give them a feedback
I will show them videos then I will ask them to describe what is happening in it to make sure that they understood the lesson.
