Vocab Exposure (3-4 minutes) • Introduce Core Vocab to Students

Tell students that we will be focusing on listening and speaking. I will hold up visual aids for each word and elicit a response from students. If they do not know I will tell them the word. Vocab will be repeated continuously, and shuffled. They will not do any writing.

Exercise 1 (6-7 minutes) • Students practice identifying words and pronunciation

Pass out (p.28 HO) Student will be asked to match the images with the words. I will demonstrate for the first one that coffee is number 3. Once students a have finished I will play (3.17) and have them check their answers. It will be played once more and I will have them repeat to practice pronunciation.

Exercise 2 - Memory game (1-3 minutes) • Practice Vocab

Exercise 3 (4-5 minutes) • Comprehension and practice

Now look at the pictures on number three. Do this by yourself. Have them check with partners when they are done. Once they are all done we will check as a class. Mini- lecture on 'like, love, eat, and drink' I will only form positive example sentences. Double check understanding of 'a lot of' like 'I eat a lot of rice.' 2:A 3:D 4:C
