Procedure (40-54 minutes)
Teacher clarifies the meaning of " fussy" by giving examples and trying to elicit the meaning from the Ss and then tells the meaning to the class then she projects two pictures and tells the Ss about the food she liked and disliked as a child and elicits theirs.
T gives the hand out to the Ss, does one or two examples with them and tells them to match the food and drinks with the pictures and then check their answers in pairs. T monitors and picks up problematic points either about the answer or about the pronunciation of the words to clarify during WC feedback. T uses some items for examples of count and non-count; 'Broccoli is awful, Apples are good', and elicits some other singular and plural forms from the Ss. T tells the Ss to complete ex.3 in pairs, monitors and picks up points for WC feedback.When finished, nominates a student from each pair to answer.
T projects sentences which show the use of " some, any, a lot of " and asks CCQs to check the meaning, form, models the pronunciation and drills the sentence, gives cues for substitution drilling. ( CCQs are on the language analysis sheet) " There are some apples in the fridge." " There is some milk in the bottle." " Would you like some cake?" " Can I have some water please?" " There aren't any apples in the fridge." " There isn't any milk in the bottle." " Are there any bananas?" " Is there any coffee?" " I drank a lot of orange juice." " She didn't earn a lot of money." " He reads a lot of books."
T tells the Ss to look at the listening task on their HO and first tells them to guess how to complete the lines with " some, any and a lot of ", Ss work in pairs. When done, T plays the audio and Ss fill in the blanks and check their answers. Then, T asks the Ss to continue the conversation by talking about themselves as children and now, asking whether they were and are fussy eaters.T monitors and take notes for whole class feedback.
T tells the Ss that they are going to play a game and divides the the Ss into two groups. she tells them that one person from each group is going to pick a word out of a bag, as a group they are going to decide whether it is count or non-count word and make up a sentence with the word. The group with more right choice of word and right sentence scores.If the sentence is hopeless, they pass to other team. T monitors and takes notes, and at the end of the activity, gives feedback on good use and errors.
