TP 07 Grammar
elementary level


In this lesson the students will discover the usage of should and shouldn't when giving/asking for advice in the context of a fit and healthy lifestyle. First the students will write down 5 tips to stay fit and healthy, then they will be exposed to the target language by matching pictures with sentences on Google Jamboard, I will cover MFAP of the grammar and after they will practice individually before using the language in the freer practice where they will describe 3 problems they have with staying healthy and fit and will give each other advice using the language as they learned in this lesson. After I will give DEC feedback.
