Show Ss a drawing of a five-point star with some information about me: 1 - birthday, 2 - siblings, 3 - occupation, 4 - favorite free time activity and 5 - favorite kinds of movies. Then, ask her to ask me questions about these answers. I ask them as well. If it's too easy for her, ask follow-up questions about her answers. Eg. When is your daughter's birthday? / What's your favorite movie and why?
Select a text (preferably with audio) of someone talking about themselves, their families and their activities. Ask her to hear, and then read the text. (Fill in the gap?)
Speak BRIEFLY about construction of sentences in the simple present and present continuous. TRAIN THIS. (Maybe use a worksheet) Talk about common time expressions.
Ask her to do some exercises in Wordwall that uses the concepts explained. 3 exercises is a good amount, one with simple present, another with present continuous and another one with question words and do / does.
Ask her to talk about herself and a typical day. What does she do in the mornings, in the afternoons, at evening and on the weekends. Corrections.
Do a brief summary of what we learned, explain homework and talk about a preview of next class: simple past.
