A1 Beginner level
To provide clarification of family in the context of family
reading and speaking
Procedure (34-45 minutes)
Draw a house picture on the board to elicit the word "family" and one or two family members. When you elicit those words, correct the students' pronunciation. Show your family album and ask the students to pass it around. While the students are looking at the pictures in the album, stick the bigger pictures of your family one by one on the WB. Each time you show a picture say out the name of the family member and the students repeat after you.
Give out the written form of the family members to the students and want them to go and stick below the correct picture. Show the webpage picture in the book (L. Clanfield, Starightforward Beginner Student's Book, 4B, reading 1, page 34), check if they understand these words: photo archive, photos, pictures, webpage, click here and leave an email. Ask them to work with their partners, read and answer the question in activity 2. Give FB on the WB but still want the students give you the answers.
Students listen to the recording about family and repeat the family words. (L. Clanfield, Straightforward Beginner Student's Book, 1.66, page 34) Want them to pronounce the words accurately. Do some drills to practice the pronunciation of the words. In vocabulary exercise 2-3, students put the words from exercise 1 in the correct categories.(female, male, both) Give out the page to the students, do the first on the board as an example and ask them to do the rest in two minutes with their partners. When time is up, want them to come to the board and write.( Straightforward Beginner Student's Book, Macmillan Publishers, 2007 , page 35, vacab exercise 2)
Students work in pairs and discuss the questions with their partners in exercise 4. While they are discussing, draw a big circle on the WB, show the percentage on the circle by dividing it like a pizza to make the first question understandable by the students. Let them tell their answers to the class. Demonstrate the activity.Finally ask the students to stand up with their own family pictures, work with another partner, introduce their family members, ask the questions that they have used in this lesson and so far and everytime change their partners to practice their TL. Monitor the students' use of TL.
Correct their errors in using the TL on the board and get them repeat after you some of the words.
