"8 feelings. Positive or negative? Choose" Give students positive / negative handout.
Show students the cards, then put them on the WB after the word has been elicited (given). *Clarify positive vs negative words* Use intonation to help with understanding.
CCQs: Bored: "if I am bored, am I also tired?" Maybe, but not always. "if I am bored, am I having fun?" No. "Do I wish I was having fun?" Yes. Excited: "was I excited to come to Istanbul?" Yes "Am I excited for this weekend?" Yes Hungry: "If you are hungry, did you eat yet?" No. "Do you want food?" Yes.

"Pictures. Words. Match."
Drill the words. Do alternate drilling on "hungry" and "angry" to differentiate the pronunciations. USE INTONATION LIBERALLY.
BEFORE HO: Have students put the frequency adverbs on a cline from 0% to 100%. "8 words. 8 blanks. Write the correct word." Monitor students to see what adjectives they are using. Some sentences could have multiple answers.
"Tell your partner which sentences are true for you" Switch pairs if finished quickly.
Chest HO. "Sentences about me, Colin. How will you know my feeling? You will Listen" THEN preteach: "But first, do we know these words? "Wallet, stole, midnight" Read the scripted sentences, making sure to use proper intonation to help students identify the emotion.
Contrast intonation of sad and happy, excited and bored. "I was excited" "I felt excited about my holiday" "I was scared" "I was scared of the dog" "I felt hungry" "I felt hungry because I didn't eat" "I felt bored" "I was bored because my friends were away" "I was tired" "I was tired because I didn't sleep well"
"Write sentences about you. 3 minutes" "Tell your partner how you felt, and why" Ss follow teachers example and write several sentences about how they felt at any time, and why they felt that way. Ss speak to each other about their experiences and feelings. Switch pairs several times for extra practice.
Make notes of common errors during monitoring of speaking activity. Correct errors as a group
"Choose 3 of the pictures. Write a story about the pictures. What happened? How do they feel?" Ss will choose 3 of the vocabulary pictures and write a short story about them, explaining what is going on and how the people feel. "Tell your story to your partner."
