Write a poem
By the end of the lesson Ss will be able to write a short 4-line poem (product writing)
To provide Ss with an opportunity to practice pronunciation of difficult sounds in the context of rhymes
Procedure (32-46 minutes)
T is to introduce the game of Board Rush to Ss. T draws 4 columns with /æ/ /i/ /ai/ /əʊ/. T is to ask Ss, if they know any of the symbols. If they do, T is to ask them to give an example. If they don’t, T is to give them an example of each sound. T is to drill the pronunciation after. If there are a lot of Ss, T is to divide the class into 2 groups. If not(3 Ss), Ss can play individually. T is to read words one at a time and Ss are to decide, which column to write this word in. The fastest correct answer remains on the board, slower and incorrect ones are wiped away. Each S had a different color marker.
T is to introduce rules of the game “Four-sided dominos” to Ss. In groups of 3 or pairs Ss are to play the game and try to find words that rhyme
T is to give Ss a handout containing a poem. T is to read and drill the pronunciation to increase Ss’ awareness of rhymes. After that Ss are to underline rhyming words in the poem(PW/GW depending on the numbers)
T is to give Ss 4 rhyming words each to prompt them to write their own poems.
T is to ask Ss to pass their poems to the person on their left. After Ss read the poems, T is to give positive feedback and encourage the discussion
