The main aim of this lesson is to provide students with an opportunity to learn more vocabularies related to everyday English such as: dates, month of the year and ordinal numbers.
The subsidiary aim of this lesson is speaking which is to give students a chance to have some productive practice related to their main aim (receptive skill).
Procedure (45 minutes)
Write on board 'what's your favorite month?'. Wait for them to think for a few seconds then put them to work in pairs and ask each other the question. while they are discussing monitor them and see if they are all on task. When they finish ask some of them the question.
Give them hand outs, in their handouts they have ordinal numbers and the written form of the numbers. Ask them to work in pairs/groups to match the numbers with written form of them. While they are on task monitor them closely. When they finished ask them to check their answers with other pairs and groups. At the end give them answer key to check how many right answers they have got. At the end of the stage drill the ordinal numbers chorally and individually (specially the difficult ones).
Give each student a tag with an ordinal number from first to twelfth and the related month of the year written on it. Take them out, make a circle and start ball game with them. Start the game by saying your month then choose a number and throw the ball toward him/her. He/she catches the ball and repeats his or her month loudly and then he/she choose another number and throws the ball towards him/her. They practice telling the month of the year while they throw the ball to each other. Then bring them back to the class give them handouts to answer the questions, while they are on task monitor them and help them if needed. Put them in groups to check their answers. At the end give them a quick feedback.
Give them handouts to match the dates with the written form of them. Put them in pairs and give them instruction. while they are on task monitor them and help them if needed. when they finished put them in groups for further checking. At the end give them a quick feedback to make sure about their answers.
Put students in pairs and give them clear instructions. Ask them to write the dates in a different way. Do one as an example. While students are on task monitor them and check if everyone is involved. When they finished put them in groups to check their answers again. At the end give them a quick feedback.
Give students some questions about an important date such as their birthday to walk around the class and ask each other. While they are speaking monitor them and take notes about possible mistakes they might have during the activity.
