Reading and Listening: Daily Routine - Receptive Skill
Elementary Level level
To provide a gist reading and listening practice. And also to develop the students' abilities to read and listen to specific information and skim for the main idea of reading text and be able to talk about them using short statements.
To provide fluency and allow students learn more about "routine" throughout reading, and to engage them in a conversation.
Procedure (38-46 minutes)
T greets the students and have a short chat to welcome the ss. T starts asking ss about their favourite activity to do in the current quarantine situation
T starts giving a chance to the ss to speak freely about their activities. T sends a file which includes the text. T presents the following instructions: Don't open the file now. Be careful that I will not read to you. You will do it alone. Try to guess the main idea of the text. Be calm. Time is 12 minutes.
T makes sure they got the instructions then ask 'do you have any questions before we start?' Ss will open the file and start reading. T sets the timer. Ss will find a glossary to help them. I will keep silent until they finish and ask not to interrupt others with questions and ask later. After they finish, I will start the ICQs and CCQs. I will try to make the atmosphere comfortable for them to answer and remember. I know that some foreign elementary ss get shy and shrink while reading because they are afraid of not having the adequate vocabulary bank to use in understanding the lesson. I will do my best to elicit the idea of the lesson in order to make it reachable to all of them. Then ss will have an activity as a 'breathing activity' where they can chat about their routines.
T plays an audio and display the activity related to it. Ss will listen and fill in the gaps. The text also talks about routine in manners of engaging ss to learn how to use the utterances taught by the earlier teacher and also practice listening.
Ss start saying what they learned in the lesson and how this lesson developed their skills. T and ss do drilling. T concludes the presentation by showing the ss a quote said by Mike Murdock, a famous singer. Ss will read it. T starts correcting some of the errors mentioned by the ss repeatedly. Give a clear feedback on the ss participation.
