TP2 Lexis - Adjectives for Feelings
To provide clarification, practice and review of adjectives that express feelings
To provide a speaking practice for fluency development based on the game "How do you feel?"
Procedure (45-45 minutes)
T. uses Google Slides to display pictures of herself showing which good things happened to her last week and expressing how she felt. T. asks Ss to share their good news and say how they felt about that.
T. asks Ss to read a 4-sentence excerpt on Google Slides and asks them to predict what the topic of the class will be. After that, T. shows the exercise that needs to be done on Google Forms and waits until Ss open it in their computers. T instructs Ss to listen to the audio and, based on it, to classify the feelings into positive and negative ones. Once Ss submit their answers, T. reviews the results on Google Forms on the screen.
T uses Google Slides to show 8 adjectives that express feelings. First, T. addresses the meaning of those adjectives, then highlights the fact that all of them have -ed endings and are made from verbs (clarifying the form) and reviews pronunciation. Ss drill the meaning of those adjectives (positive vs negative) and practice pronunciation.
T. provides instructions for a controlled practice exercise on adjectives to express feelings. On Google Forms, Ss choose the most appropriate options based on the context and later review their answers in pairs using private messages on Zoom. After that, there is an open class discussion of the answers.
T. explains less controlled practice for Ss to keep drilling adjectives to express feelings. On Google Slides, Ss match the questions about the feelings with the corresponding answers that are expressing feelings. Once finished, Ss review their answers in the private messages on Zoom and then discuss them with the class.
T. asks Ss which adjectives to express feelings they were practicing during the class. T. explains to Ss the rules of “How Did You Feel?” game on Google Jamboard and shows how to roll a dice online - https://freeonlinedice.com T. models a sample answer (T. shows Ss how to play, rolls an online dice, advances on the virtual board on Google Jamboard, asks a question and answers it using the adjectives to express feelings). Ss play in pairs or groups of 3. T monitors the process visiting the virtual rooms on Zoom (using breakout rooms function).
T. asks Ss what they learnt during the class. T. provides a delayed error correction on the final tasks.
