Procedure (51-68 minutes)
Welcome students. Ask them how they feel and respond genuinely. Write on the top of the board "The best day of the week is" and ask the class for their answers. Next, ask why it is the best day of the week and write the things they do on the board e.g. "I go shopping with friends." and "I play football."
Chest HO 1. Tell Ls that they need to match each verb to some words that can be used with it. Demonstrate with them. Monitor carefully to know their errors. Let them check their answers in pairs. Let the students listen to check their answers.
Focus on the areas the Ls do not already know. Give SS cards. Each card contains one sentence. Tell them that they need to act in order to understand the meaning. Drill the correct pronunciation and focus on stress patterns.
Ask SS to add the words from the box to the diagram. Demonstrate with learners. Monitor carefully and check that Ls have improved in their knowledge of the TL. Provide help whenever necessary.
Give open class feedback and praise good use of TL and correct any errors sensitively.
Ask SS to put the adverbs in the right place. Monitor carefully. Let them to check their answers in pairs. Give feedback.
Show SS pictures of some activities and point to one picture and say "I make the bed everyday." Ask SS "Which one of these words we can use from the diagram instead of everyday?" Elicit answers. Point to another picture and so on. Ask Ls some questions about form through two marker sentences e.g. I always make the bed."Where is the adverb in the sentence? Can we use the phrases at the beginning and at the end?" Drill the correct pronunciation and focus on stress patterns and linking while drilling.
Chest HO 2. Tell Ls to put adverbs of frequency in the correct place. Let SS check their answers in pairs. Give feedback.
Play "Find someone who.." game. Give each student HO with some phrases and tell the whole class to mingle and find who does these activities. Play a board game. Divide SS into groups of two or three. Give each group a copy of the game board and a dice. When a player lands on a square, the student to their right asks them the "How often do you.." question on the square. The player then answer the question by making a correct and complete sentence with an adverb of frequency. The first player to reach the finish wins the game. Play How often do you use English game. Divide the class into groups. Give each group four sets of cards. Tell SS to prepare true and false sentences about how often they use English when doing the things shown in the cards, e.g. "I often make phone calls in English." Each group then competes against another group in a true or false game (Team A and B). A student from Team A chooses one of their cards and makes a true or false sentence to Team B. Team B guesses whether the sentence is true or false. If Team B guesses correctly, they win a point and so on.
My partner daily life game. Divide SS into pairs (A and B).Explain that SS are going to find out about their partners' daily life using the questions on their worksheet.
