Emmanuel TP 2
Upper Elementary level
To provide gist and detailed listening practice using a text about a birthday party
Students will be able to produce what they think and share with their partners their ideas by speaking
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
I will have learners talk about 1 or 2 questions related to the topic of the lesson. How was the best birthday party you had or assisted? What do you think about throwing big parties?
I will Choose 2 or 3 challenging words from the text and cover Meaning, form and pronunciation Words: Lucky, ill and wrong
I will tell ss to listen to an audio to get the general idea, then they will choose which topics were brought on the text. Which of these things are not mentioned in the text. Where the family lives. People at the party, Food and drink, The weather, People not at the party and Birthday presents
Learners will listen a second time for detailed information to answer the following questions. How old did the boy turned? How many people attended the party? Where did his grandad come from? What were the two things that went wrong? If needed i will provide the audio one more time
Now that students have the context of the text, they will answer with their own opinion these questions with their partners. Have you ever had a party where things didn’t go as expected? What happened? How did you feel? and what was your reaction? What would be your ideal party? I will give delayed error correction at the end of the class.
