Procedure (47 minutes)
T will stick the pictures of two houses on WB. One of them will be an expensive house, the other one will be an ordinary house. Ss will be introduced with the concept of ' a dream house' and asked which one is a normal house.
T will show the pictures and try to elicit the words from the ss.
Ss will drill the vocabulary in various ways. A group will repeat the word just after another group and also mumble drilling will be an alternative way to practise the new words.
Ss will be given a HO to match the pictures with the correct words.
Vocabulary pictures will be on the board and ss will be given the words to match with the pics on the board.
Ss will be work on pairs and given two pictures to spot the differences. They will ask some questions about their friend's picture. Then they will come to the board and write their answers under the categories 'Picture 1' and 'Picture 2'.If it is necessary, teacher will add the differences which haven't been noticed by ss.
Ss will be divided into two groups called ''The Computers'' and ''The Televisions''. Each group will be given the same picture and they will be allowed to look at the picture for a minute. They won't write anything while looking at it. When the time is over, ss will give the pictures back to T and T will give them a HO. There will be two categories in the HO: ''There is'' and ''There are''. Groups will write down as many details as they can remember under two headings. They will have five minutes to do it.
The Computers and The Televisions will swop their sheets and check the answers by using the answer key given by T. Ss will congratulate the winners.
Ss will write about their dream houses with their pairs.After they finish, T will have a quick look at their writings and stick the writings on the wall so that ss will be able to read each other's dream houses.
T will try to elicit the correct answers from ss by writing their mistakes on the board.
