Day-to-Day Life - A Typical Day
Beginner 1 level
To review 'telling the time' from previous lesson, and to teach Vocabulary to describe daily routines from eliciting vocabulary from the Students.
Controlled 'writing' and 'speaking' for accuracy
Procedure (51-71 minutes)
Using WB, revise times from previous lessons, and ask CCQs. Draw diagrams of a clock showing different times - o'clock/quarter past (15 mins past)/half past (12.30 e.g.)/ quarter to, etc.
Set the context of daily routine, and brainstorm with Ss, things they do in their daily lives. Write all Vocabulary on WB, and Drill with Students before the next exercise.
Students will be given a HO with pictures of Carol's daily routine. They will be asked to match the words/phrases with the appropriate pictures. Elicit the answer for each picture and drill, and correct pronunciation as necessary.
Ask the Students to match the words and phrases in Exercise 1(a) to times of day, e.g. Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night, and discuss and check in Pairs. Draw a time-line on the WB, and hand out random vocabulary words to the Students, and ask them up to the WB individually to place them appropriately on the time-line.
Give the Students a HO, and get them to write eight sentences about their own daily routine and times. E.g. 'I get up at 8 o'clock, and I have breakfast." 'I go to English class at 10.30. Monitor the Students and correct any errors.
Model the question 'What time do you __________?' on the WB, using the daily routine vocabulary. Ask the Students the question and get them to answer. Repeat this exercise several times.
Create a survey on a HO for the Students about their daily routines. Ask the Students to mingle asking the question "What time do you ______?" Ask the Students to record the answers.
On completion of the survey, get Students to practise 'speaking' and report back what they wrote, e.g. "Serhan gets up at 6.00. Listen to hear if they use the 3rd person singular, and correct as necessary. The next Teacher will focus more on the use of the 3rd person singular.
