Set up the game. Student pretends to be a famous person and the rest of the class has to ask Yes/No questions to find out who she/he is. However, the student at the board is allowed to only answer yes, or no questions. When the student answers "yes", teacher writes the full sentence on the WB such as "He is an actor", or "She is a singer".
On WB, teacher adds new sentences with the subjects 'I', 'We', 'It' and 'They' (because these subject will not be used during the game and she rewrites the students' sentences with contraction of to be. Teacher reads each sentence and make students repeat the sentences by explaing the usage and pronounciation difference between the long and contracted forms of 'to be'.

Teacher asks the sts do the exercise 2 on page 25 individually and ask them to check their answers with their peers.
