Questionnaire 'Find someone who...' (7-8 minutes) • In this stage the students will make a questionnaire about the school subjects.

T asks some of the SS questions: Were you good at Maths? Were you good at Geography? Yes, I was. No I was not. and writes them on the board. T shows the SS the questionnaire she is going to give: T: 'Now I want you to do the same thing? You'll try to write a name for each part by asking the questions on the WB.' ICQ: Are you going to ask your partners ? Are you going to write one name for each part? After giving the WS T asks Sts to stand up. When the activity is finished they go over them quickly.

Game on grammar (7-8 minutes) • In this part Sts will make sentences using 'I am...' I was..'

T by asking finds out who are still students. T asks one of the Sts 'Are you good at History? T asks the ones who aren't Sts 'Were you good at History?

And than I'll ask them in a minute time to find as many words as with two syllables. T: 'Now I want you to divide you in to groups (group numbers can change according to the numbers of the students) and find as many words as you can with two syllables. Let's see which group will have more.' T gives each group a name and one minute to discuss and ask them to say and they count together and find out which group has more words.
