Teaching Practice 8
Elementary level


In this lesson, students are going to read two wedding cards that introduce wedding vocabulary. The teacher will use pictures (PP slides) and students' feedback to elicit the new vocabulary. Then students will skim the two cards to answer the two questions that the teacher gives. After that, the teacher asks the students and takes the answers as feedback. Students will be divided into two groups to read the two cards again individually and answer/discuss the questions of ex 2 and 3. After students finish discussion the teacher asks two questions for feedback and provides each group with the key answers to check. Then the teacher shows ex 4 on the board asking the students to go to the board and fill the gaps (sts will be given some time to read). After that, if the time doesn't run fast the teacher asks them to do ex 6 and compare their answers in pairs. The teacher asks randomly for feedback. Then students will be put into two groups to discuss some advice to two friends coming from London to spend their holiday in Istanbul. After they finish the teacher asks curiously receiving answers as feedback. If there is time left students will listen to 'Holiday' song choosing the correct answers..
