Procedure (45-61 minutes)
Introduce the topic using a picture on the G-slide. Ask Ss: what the pictures are trying to represent? what kind of memories do the people have? Do you have any pictures of memories? What are some ways to remember some memories? Generally speaking what was your childhood like?
Demonstrate activity using G-slides. Ss should read the sentences on the G-slide. Then match the word with the correct definition. Answer: lighthouse: (noun) a tall building near the coast or shore with a flashing light at the top to warn ships of rocks and other dangers. out of the blue: it is completely unexpected. load: ( noun) the amount of weight carried, especially by a vehicle, a structure such as a bridge, or an animal. The amount of work sb has to do. When Ss have done matching, confirm answers and ask one or two ccq's. ccq's: light house: Do you need a boat to get there?/ Is it near land? Out of the blue: Is it something expected?
The Ss will hear the audio to get a general idea of the topic. Show G-forms ( memorable moments1) Tell Ss they will read the questions quickly before playing the audio. Confirm and correct answers as a whole class. Answers: 1) brother 2) 4 is not true ( they went to a blues concert).
Ss will listen carefully a second time and answer T/ F as they listen. The Ss have to pay attention to the phrases mentioned in the audio and put true if the phrase is mentioned and false if it was not. Ss will be put in BOR's to check answers in pairs and the T will monitor to see if the audio needs to be replayed. Then answers will be shared as a class. Answer: One of the most memorable moments/ events in my life was... It all started one day when... I had absolutely no idea... The next thing/ morning... That weeknd/ day is one of my happiest memories...
Tell Ss will choose one question that is in the G-slide and they will be giving a short talk about it. Will need to write notes should use the key phrases used in the past activity. The Ss will write notes on their notebook or G-slides. Ss will share in pairs before sharing as a class. Questions: What are the strongest memories of your childhood?
