Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T will share Google Jamboard and will ask Ss: "What are the people in these pictures doing?" "Partying" "What is a word for asking someone to go to a party?" "Invitation or inviting them"

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

Useful language covered in this lesson will be: - Would you like + infinitive verb - Sure, I'll be there. - Thank you, but I can't make it. T will elicit meaning from Ss by using matching activity in Google Jamboard. T will ask Ss which meaning matches the phrase. S will provide answer and T will drag meaning to phrase.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

T will share link to Ss for the Google Jamboard. T will instruct Ss to go to slides 2 - 4. These slides contain the reading task. Ss will spend 5 mins reading the emails. T will then check with Ss for gist. T will ask Ss "What is Mary's email about?" "An invitation to a party" "Can James go to the party?" "No" "Why not?" "He is going to a baseball game." "Can Greg go to the party?" "Yes"

Productive Task(s) (13-15 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

T will share Writing Google Forms link with Ss. Ss will work individually on the writing tasks in the Google form. They will have 8 minutes to work on this. Then T will review the writing task and conduct OCFB about what S wrote.

Feedback (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with constructive feedback to improve use of target language.
