Teaching Practice #5
To practice speaking about typical daily routines. Using vocabulary common verbs and nouns, "wake up, eat, drink, read, etc."
Also, reading about "morning people" vs. "night people".
Procedure (28-47 minutes)
Say hello and introduce yourself. Ask 5 students to write your name and the other teacher's names on name tags. Ask them if they remember their names, ask them to spell it. Then pass out name tags for each student, ask them to fill out their names.
Write times on the board as clocks: 7am, 8am, 9am, 12pm, 1pm, 3pm, 6pm, 8pm, 12am. Write: "What do you do at....?" on the board. Give students 2 minutes to discuss this with their partner about their routines. If students ask me about a word they do not know, have them mime it to their partner.
Write: "My Typical Morning" on the board. Mime and model: "waking up, taking a shower, eating breakfast, going to school, etc." Students watch and remember. Put students in parallel lines facing each other and have them play "speed date" with their mimes of the words. Each student must mime something they do at a certain time. Teacher will say what time. Ask Ss what other Ss do at a certain time after the activity.
Have students do H/O #1, exercises 1 and 2 really quickly. Play answers on CD for repetition.
Ask: do you like mornings? Do you like to go to bed late? Who is a morning person in class/who is a night person? Have students read activity and answer the question. Ask them to read it once again and mention the answer is TWO.
Have students complete the worksheet in pairs about morning or night people. Check answers as a class quickly on the board.
Have morning people and night people form their own groups, then have them figure out within their group, who is the super morning person and the super night person. Then have them arrange themselves in a cline. If more time, have both groups organize by time.
