Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of the 3rd person singular in present simple tense in the context of Superheroes

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation about daily routines in the context of Superheroes


Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I introduce myself and have a chat with ss. I'll give them some information about the lesson.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I'll talk about my routine and compare it with spiderman. I use the ppt file and try to engage ss with the superheroes. I would encourage them to talk about their superheroes.

Highlighting (4-5 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I use the ppt to highlight the use of 3rd person singular in the present simple tense. Ss will be asked to make some rules for the use of "s,es,ies". I may not explain all the details as it will be the first exposure to the target language. Some mistakes may not be corrected in this stage of the lesson.

Clarification (3-5 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Since it's the first lesson and the length of the lesson is not enough to work on form and pronunciation in detail, some drilling and a brief explanation will be made.

Energizer (1-2 minutes) • To energize the class

After some grammar clarification, Simon Says will be played to energize the class.

Semi-Controlled Practice (4-5 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Ss will write their sentences about their superheroes. Then, they can read their sentences to the whole class. I will correct or encourage them to correct their mistakes.

Feedback-Homework (2-2 minutes) • To provide students with some feedback and assigning homework

I'll give feedback on their performance and the homework will be assigned.
