Teaching Practice 3
Beginner - A1 level
To provide clarification and practice of possessive 's in the context of family
To provide detailed reading practice using a text about possessive 's in the context of family
Procedure (44-58 minutes)
Show the picture of Anni's family and ask the learners to guess who the people are and how they know each other. (Power Point: put the picture on the board). Instructions: Look at the picture. Who are they? Are they friends? Colleagues? Family? (Write their answers on the board if you want to).
Present learners with reading passage (T. 4.1) (Put the picture on the board) (Chesting and give instructions) Instructions: Read the text (Give the handout) Have learners do ex. 2 p. 25 (Put ex. 2 on the board) (Chesting and give instructions) Instructions: Do ex. 2. (Demostration: no. 1) Pair-check FB. I adapted both the reading text and ex. 2 p. 25. As for the reading text, I decided to eliminate the possessive adjectives students are not familiar with and I turned them into the ones they know. Other forms of possessive adjectives could distracted them and in this way they can focus on the different forms of 's. Same criteria for ex. 2p. 25, I eliminated the questions with unfamiliar possessive adjectives and I turned into a matching activity.
Make them read the text again. Instructions: read the text again. 's = 1) is 2) possessive Pair check. 's = is She's married. She's a doctor. He's a bank manager. She's at Camden High School. He's at the University of Westminster. 's = possessive Annie's hospital is in the centre of town. Jim' is Annie's husband. Jim's office is in the centre of the town.
Start with something they already know. She’s Annie = _________ name’s Annie. He’s Jim = ________ name’s Jim. Then sentences from the text. Annie’s hospital is in the centre of town = _______ hospital is in the centre of the town. Jim’s office is the centre of town = ________ office is in the centre of the town. Visuals can help. CCQs Is this her hospital? Is this Annie's hospital? Is this Jim's hospital? Is this her office? Is this his office? Is this Jim's office? Make a few more example with the students name and possessions. (Is this his pen? / Is this Tarlan's pen? / Is this Sibel's pen? Is this his pen? Is this her pen?)
Chesting and give instructions: fill in the gaps. Give handouts. _____ name’s Jim. Annie_____ husband is Jim. Annie______ a doctor. Jim’s office______ in the centre of the town.
