Procedure (42-58 minutes)
I will show the students my friend Lisa Simpsons, and I will show them her life in simple present.
in pairs discuss what you do and write about your friend using at least three verbs.
Drill and (choral and individual) repetition of the sentence.
I will then ask them to help me write the sentence in the whiteboard and draw a timeline to make sure that they understand the tense.
I will let them listen to a listening task and then write down all the present tenses they hear. we will pronounce them together.
using Lisa and the examples they have already written I will provide the negative form and ask them to turn every sentence into the negative form using the simple present.
in this stage, I will show them that some verbs and don’t change into simple present when we add s because there are some verbs that might change.
I will give them worksheets with some practices and let them complete them with what we have learned so far.
