CELTA Numbers Unassesed Teaching


in this lesson plan, I'll partner teaching "Numbers". No course book is announced. Students are expected to know the basics. The teacher will board some of the hand-outs . Students will follow by some listening and productive communicative feed-backs. There is a 15-min course.followed by some pronunciation pattern and communicative use of numbers...


Main Aims

  • Students will have a brush up on the lexis numbers

Subsidiary Aims

  • They will learn pronunciation of some specific difficulties


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

writing the numbers in order on the board seems to suffice to give the idea of what Rebecca and I going to teach. I'd say:"Let's count". This will give them me the idea of what I am going to teach.

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

With putting some guide lines on the board elve/teen/ty/hundred/thousand , students would distinct the differences more specifically...

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

Use titles as "elve","teen","ty","hundred","thousand" group on the board. This way would seperate 11 and 12 on the "elve" group, 13-19 on the "teen" category and "ty" 20-90 and so on. I chose this categories since students who are "false beginners" confuse the "teen" and "ty" group.

Clarification Pronunciation (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

On a piece of paper, already fi(ai)v, fi(i)fteen, and fi(i)fty is printed. There will be given some WC and S drills on that. Second card is "th" sound plus the "teen" emphasis of "teen" group numbers.

Controlled Practice (2-3 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I will now give individual examples on numbers. I'll write some digits on the board and they'll read it out loud.

Semi-Controlled Practice (3-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Some matching sheets will be handed to the Ss. One example is already done which makes the instruction easy. Students do individually and the will be asked to check it in pairs. The answers will be checked by the teacher.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Students are given "cards" which includes some questions for numbers? ei: "How old is your mum/dad? What year were you born in? What's your favorite No.? Students will walk around asking their friends?
