To provide speaking free practice through the context of the lesson as a productive skill
Procedure (24-41 minutes)
T asks ss about some questions to let them express their opinions and ideas (in present simple) about their daily lives to activate schemata from the previous lessons and then sets students in a circle around him and model the lead in by passing a tennis ball to one of the students standing in the circle and says a negative statement about him/self "I don't........" and the students who has the ball pass it again to any of his peers and says different negative statments about him/herself e.g. "I don't play soccer at weekend" and so on. Feedback: students need to remember what everyone said and then use the 1st person 'you' and point out him or her and restate his/her negative statement. T could also mime out that he has no money, so h/she can elicit the form from students.
T will hand students over HOs of 5a exerise and model one sentence as an example in drawn table on the wb. Then ask ss to fill in the table individually the two given negative statements (form stage). Feedback: Ss peer check while teacher can monitor and keep eyes if someone mistakes the grammatical structure.
T gives Hos of the next exercise and asks students to make the negative forms of all the affirmative statemets they have in the exercise. Feedback: Ss check in pairs and the T discuss which sentence was true for them to enable personalisation.
With the same handout, T ask the students yes/no questions and then they have to ask him or her the same.T will model the answers Yes, I don't - No, I don't. and then will draw a five-columns table on the wb showing (auxiliary, subject, infinitive,-----, short answer). Afterward, ss need to divide the each sentence into words then match put every word in its category (parts of speech). T might drill the whole sentence Feedback: Ss will peer check their answers and then T elicits answers from wc
T gives Hos which are printed lists of incomplete yes/no questions to the whole class. Ss need to fill in the gap by picking the correct word (Aux or infinitive) from the wb and then ask their peers randomly these questions and write down their answers. The one with most written answers wins. Feedback: T needs to use ICQ after instructing this exercise
