To provide fluency speaking practice in an oral description in the context of finding different objects between two pictures.
Procedure (42-50 minutes)
Transcribe the lexis of social expressions from the previous lesson on small cut-ups. Let each S draw one cut-up, take a look at them, and read it out one by one. The T transcribes "Today we're playing games." onto the W/B and asks the S what we are doing today.
Group the Ss in pairs. (A srtong one with a weak one) Give instruction about the matching puzzle game. (Chesting) Hand out the phonetic symbols and the game sheet. (Task before Text) Monitor quietly; help the Ss if necessary. Peer-check among different pairs. Feedback: AK for matching the phonetic transcriptions to words. / open class feedback for the questions " What is the cat doing? / What is the bear doing?
1. Listen and circle the words you hear. Peer-check. Feedback: AK. Drill the /i:/, /i/ and /ai/ sound. 2. Listen and mark. Peer-check. Feedback: AK. 3. Let the students try to pronounce the given words correctly in pairs. Then, play the audio and let them repeat after it. Feedback: Drill the sound /ai/. 4. Listen and write in the symbols /i:/, /i/ and /ai/. Peer-check. Feedback: AK.
Group the students in pair. Give instructions to the students to describe their pictures in details to each other without showing the picture; write down what's different from their own pictures using key words. Peercheck. Give a open class feedback while recoding the Ss' key words onto the right side of the w/b. Divide the w/b to two column. Write the sound pairs each for two column. Let the students say which of the key words they find belongs to which sound. There're three pair of sounds and three pair of pictures in total.
