T shows questions and plays audio: Man: What did you do yesterday? Woman: Nothing much. I just stayed at home and cleaned the house. Man: How boring! Woman: Yeah, it was. And you? What did you do? Man: I drove to the mountains and went hiking. Woman: That sounds fun! Man: It was. I had a great time. Gist task (3'): Answer the following questions: a) What were the man and the woman talking about ? A: About what they did the day before. b) Who had a boring day ? The woman c) What did the man do ? He went hiking in the mountains.
Woman: Nothing much. I just s…….. at home and c……... the house. T: Do you remember what the woman said ? (Play audio if necessary).
MEANING: 1' I stayed at home and cleaned the house. CCQs: → Is it past, present or future ? Past → When in the past ? Yesterday. → Is she still cleaning the house ? No → Can I replace yesterday by ‘last month’ ? Yes → Does it change the meaning ? No T: We use the past simple to talk about completed / finished actions / events in the past. FORM: 2’ REGULAR VERBS: I clean the house. I cleaned the house. CCQs: → What is the difference ? What do you notice -ed at the end of the verb. For regular verbs, we add -ed. (+examples.) IRREGULAR VERBS: I drive to the mountains. I d______ to the mountains. (drove) I drived to the moutains. CCQs: → Do you remember what the man said ? → Is sentence 3 correct ? → Here, can we add -ed ? No T: The whole verb changes. For irregular verbs, we don’t add -ed, the past form changes completely. (+ Examples) T: How do I know when to add -ed or not ? Well you have to learn them. There are no rules. But don’t worry, today we will just focus on some of them. PRONUNCIATION: Affirmative / Negative / Interrogative: 4' Ask students to find an affirmative sentence in the dialogue. I just stayed at home and cleaned the house. Emphasize difference in the sound -ed for 'stayed' (steɪd) nd 'cleaned' (klind) and 'worked' (wərkt) + stress. Turn the sentences into negative: I didn't stay at home. CCQs: > What do you notice ? > Is the verb stay with -ed ? > Why ? + Pronunciation. T: For negative statements, just add did not or didn’t before the base verb. T: Can you identify a question in the dialogue ? What did you do yesterday ? Pronunciation + intonation + linking. CCQs: > Is the verb 'do' with ed ? > Why ?
