Procedure (43-5 minutes)
I will ask students 2 Qs that I will answer first: 1. What is your favorite day of the week ? T: My favorite day is Friday because it's when the weekend begins. 2. Give 1 word that makes you think of the 'weekend'. T: 'family time' because we watch movies and have meals together. So, what about you ?
T: When we talk about the weekend, we talk about things / activities we do. 🧠Brainstorming: What activities can we do during the weekend ? use the whiteboard. Let’s think about outdoor / indoors activities. Students share ideas and I write them on the whiteboard: Go to the cinema, do homework... If students don't have ideas I will ask Qs such as: → Who reads during the weekend ? → Who likes going to the cinema,...? → Who stays at home ? What do you do then ? ...
MEANING: (2') T: let’s take a look at this sentence: (Google Slide presentation) I go to the cinema. CCQs: T: Is it past, present or future ? Ss: Present > Timeline I went to the cinema. CCQs: T: Is it past, present or future ? Ss: Past T: We use the past simple to talk about finished actions / events in the past. FORM: (4') 2 types of verbs: Form: Regular verbs (2') I watch a movie I watched a movie CCQs: T: What is the difference ? Ss: -ed at the end of a the verb. T: For regular verbs, we add -ed at the end of the verb... (+examples). Form: Irregular verbs (2') T: Do you remember the sentence about the cinema? (sentence appears: I go to the cinema.) Ss: Yes Wrong sentence appears: I goed to the cinema. CCQs: T: Is this sentence correct ? Do we add -ed ? Ss: No. Correct sentence appears: I went to the cinema. T: The whole verb changes. We call them irregular verbs. There are no rules for irregular verbs, we have to learn them (+examples). Jamboard activity + PRONUNCIATION: (4') Students match 8 past forms (went, did, made...) with the correct base form. (Verbs that they will use to describe their activities.) Pronunciation: stress,...
Students will now get some practice. Qs + Instructions appear: 1. What did you do last weekend ? T models: Last weekend I watched a movie with friends and my family. With my sister, we made pizza and cookies for everybody. 2. How do you feel when the weekend is over ? T models: I feel stressed because I have a lot of work to do. Instructions: Partner asks the Q: what did you do last weekend ? The other students answers: I went, I did... remember to use past simple and chose a type of activity. Vice-versa, same for second Q. You will repeat this activity twice with a different partner. Any Qs ? You have 5 minutes. Students are sent to BORs.
Students come back from the BORs and share ideas with the class. Qs to get students participating: → Who was your partner ? → What did... do last weekend ? → What did you do last weekend ? → Tell me..., How do you feel when the weekend is over ? → Do you feel happy, stressed, excited... ?
If it allows, I will correct some mistakes students made while they were talking.
