Lead-in (2-5 minutes) • To provide students with context that introduces them to TL

From the feedback on the lead-in the teacher gets students opinions on the stuff you have seen and tries to get as many adjectives as possible write on the whiteboard randomly then he asks students to get in pairs and write one or two sentences in which they use as many adjectives as possible. the teacher gets students' sentences.

grammar expansion (7-10 minutes) • To guide students through finding out the rules through examples and natrually apply them.

Based on the previous exposure the teacher chooses three sentences from the students' answers (two are wrong and one is correct) or he may provide them himself then gets students in pairs to discuss which sentence is correct. after choosing the right sentence the teacher tries to elicit each adjective's family (big/small/.....refers to size) he tries to elicit as many adjectives as he can and writes them in category. adds some other nous then gets students in pairs/or groups to write as many sentences as they can using the different adjectives

Grammar practice (5-8 minutes) • To get students produce the language through exercises

The teacher gives students a handout with 9 sentences that includes a noun and adjectives ordered randomly. he gives students five minutes to put them in the right order and produce the correct sentences either in groups or in pairs. then in their groups/with partner they check their answers in the article.
