Warmer (5-10 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

1- Get some colorful thick pieces of string (exceed their number in the class by 2 pieces of string) and cut them of various different lengths as short as 30 cm then bunch all them into one loose lump. 2- Then demonstrate slowly pulling on a piece of string and separating it from the lump while pulling on the string introducing yourself like "I'm Salma , I'm a teacher what's your name?" so the next student take the lump pulling on different color and he/she has to introduce him/herself before the string is out and so on with the whole class.

Test #1 (15-20 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

1-Remind them with the difference between a letter name and a letter sound and revise quickly sounds of letters Aa to Ff by showing them only the pictures and they tell you the sound. 2- Divide them into groups (choose a leader for each group) and tell them they are going to have a group of shuffled small alphabets flashcards (capital and small letters) and they have to match the capital letter with the small letters then arrange it in order. (Gg-Hh-Ii-Jj-Kk-Ll) 3- Give each group a set of shuffled alphabet flashcards then monitor and provide help. 4- Have the activity to an end ,divide the board and then ask the leaders of each group to come on board and stick the flash cards in order in their group section on the board. 5- Check their answers and correct the mistakes. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1- Stay in a central position and ask each leader to take back their flashcards. 2- Then tell them that you will say a letter sound and each group raise up the correct letter flash card. To make it more fun and challenging , tell them the winner group is the group who will raise up the letter card quickly. 4- Get notes of what was difficult to understand or what they didn't know.

Teach (15-20 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

1- Use the (Gg to Ll) PowerPoint and drill with them the first part of the PPT which is the sounds with pictures like /g/ Guitar *don't say the letter name*. 2- Then drill the next part which is the only sounds of /g/ /h/ /i/ /j/ /k/ /l/ without pictures. 3- Display the next slides which are the pictures only and elicit the sounds of each letter then drill them over and over again, for example a picture of a guitar-students must say /g/ not "guitar". 4- Display the last part of the PPT and nominate students to answer the exercises in the PPT and correct their pronunciation mistakes.

Test #2 (5-10 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

1- Divide them into groups and give them shuffled cards include pictures like (guitar-hat-insect-jumper-kite-lollipop). 2- Tell them to arrange these in alphabetical order. 3- Monitor and provide help if needed. 4-Give a final feedback by writing the words of the pictures(guitar-hat-insect-jumper-kite-lollipop) in the correct order on the board.

Free practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

1- Prepare a copy of alphabets flash cards from Aa to Ll and have every student choose a 2 random letters then send them outside the class to make a list of items that start with the flash card letters they have. 2- Monitor them and provide help. 3- Have the activity to an end and provide feedback
