To provide clarification of Example: 1st conditional ("if" clause) in the context of Surroundings
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a Example: 1st conditional ("if" clause) in the context of Experiences
Procedure (43-55 minutes)
I'll show some images of 1st conditional to my learners and tell them what they understand by this Images and 1st conditional sentences mentioned there. This would open them up about the main idea and they would be exposed & engaged into this topic of conditional statement.
I'll arrange some fill-in the blanks sentence with 1st conditional, where the 1st one has been answered to set the tone. Then i'll ask my students to answer the others, probably I would nominate, that would ensure thorough engagement, also learners would be fully aware about the 1st conditional. I'll do it after MFP clarification.
Meaning: I'll ask students some CCQs for ss to identify the meaning. (If I come here, mom will be happy) 1> When are these actions referring to? (Future) 2> Do I know when it will happen in future? (No) Form: I'll ask my ss the different components of the 1st conditional If+ noun+ verb+ (main clause) If Pablo comes here, he will bring his family Pronunciation: I'll read the sentence out loud and ask ss to identify where in the sentence stress falls. e.g. If Pablo comes here, he will bring his family, stress is on If Pablo and He I'll ask them to drill chorally.
I'll ask ss to order scrambled sentences forming 1st conditional. e.g. 1> I/ send a postcard / I (/ have time= 1>I’ll send you a postcard if I have time I'll share with them the google Jam board with this exercise so that they can go to the BOR and do the activity individually and then discuss with their peer.
I'll ask my Ss to go to the BOR and ask their peers 5 questions with 1st conditional and elicit corresponding responses with 1st conditional. Again, google jam board will be shared to them so that they can work on this. Example: Questions: What will happen if your laptop crashes? Answer: If my laptop crashes, I might not/won’t continue my studies.
I'll present those sentences/pronunciations/form errors that they make on the session, without naming anybody, so that the learning becomes wholesome.
