T indicates a picture and animates it using her gestures, mimics. T asks: " Any guess?" Sts try to guess it.
T shows the adjectives of the pictures on the left side of the WB. Then T asks one by one indicating the pictures: "Have a look at this girl. She is a ........... girl? T (beautiful)" T elicits answers. T asks one by one indicating each picture. T sticks the adjectives under the pictures. It is like a matching through role play of the teacher and elicitation.
T uses a song related to describing people such as: " beautiful, nice, tall". T gives sts HO with gaps of the songs. Sts are expected to complete the gaps with the adjectives when they hear. They check it with their partners.
T plays the recording. Sts listen and practice chorally after every adjective. Then T shows the stress of the adjectives on the WB. T repeats the drill if necessary.
Sts are given HO related to the matching opposite adjectives with pictures. Sts complete this part with their partners. T checks the results. T gives an answer key for early finishers. Then T gives second handout to sts. T changes some of the Sts' places to provide new partners. Sts read the words in boxes and they decide if it is a noun or adjective with their new partners. Then they circle the adjectives with colorful pencils. T elicits answers.
T writes some example sentences on the WB. " This watch is nice/ It's a new car / It's an old car. At the same time the T indicates the pictures of the watch and the car. Then highlights the following points: "adjectives go after be, adjectives go before nouns" T also highlight the word order in questions.
T gives Sts mini pictures of the adjectives ( new, expensive, tall, short, cold, hot, big , small, fat, thin) T pairs the Sts as an A and B. Each student will look at the pictures and make sentence with them such as:" It's a big apple, he is a fat man." Sts talk to each other. T monitors their speaking.
