A day in the life
Elementry, A2 level
To provide clarification of Culture in the context of Costumes, food, habits, events.
To provide practice of Present simple tense in the context of adverbs of frequency
Procedure (30-44 minutes)
I will give the students a set of daily routine verbs and ask them individually if if they are keen on this habit or not and how often do they do it.
I will ask them to look at the picture on page 30 and ask them to answer these ICQs to warm up: 1-Where do they work – in the city or the countryside? 2-What job do the people do? 3- Is their work easy or hard?
I will read the passage and I will divide them into four groups, 5 students each and I will give them 4 minutes to prepare answers for the reading questions in section C. the, I will ask them to highlight the new vocabulary and guess the meaning of the word 'culture' and other vocabulary, then I will clarify them with examples.
I will draw a timeline on the whiteboard to show them where the adverbs should be with percentages. then, I am going to ask them to underline them in the previous passage and tell me where can they be placed in the sentence.
After explaining the usage of the adverbs, the students should be able now to answer the questions 1A- 1b on page 18 at the WB.
