To provide product writing practice of a postcard
To provide accuracy and fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of travel
Procedure (32-45 minutes)
I would ask students to have brainstorm different types of holidays, where do they spend their holidays? What are they going to do in the holidays?
Give the students a postcard, to show them what I expect them to later write. I would ask them to read it and discuss with a peer Where the people that wrote the postcard are? are they enjoying their holiday? what have they done? I would ask them to write their questions down into the zoom chat. As a whole class, we are going to review the difficult vocabulary of that same postcard.
Now that students have analyzed the model text in sufficient detail, we are going to do our own postcard. I am going to show them Canva, a website where you can do your own postcard. They are going to do an individual writing task. I am going to tell students to think of a city they would like to visit, imagine a holiday in that city, and write a postcard home to their parents. Give feedback.
Give feedback and ask students to show everyone their postcards. I would focus first on content, then on language and corrections. I would give students 3 more examples of how they can write a greeting postcard.
I will show students good examples of writing and where they need to improve.
