Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I welcome the students, ask them how they are and share the screen. i tell them the best person in my life is my mum because she is the kindest and the most polite. She always treats people well and she cares about everyone. I ask students about them.

Exposure (5-6 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I share the form with them in the chat and in my screen. I tell them to read the text and answer the questions individually. They have 3-4 min I show them the answers and ask them if they have questions (1-2 min)

Highlighting (1-2 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I share my screen with students and tell them here are some sentences that we saw in the text. Read them again before we continue to the task.

Clarification (10-15 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

With my screen shared I tell them: "Now you will answer the questions individually. Let's do together some examples. Luis which word finishes in -est? etc" (1 min) Now please answer the questions. You have 6 minutes. Then I show them the answers and ask for questions giving feedback. (1-2 minutes) I use the word to sum up the important forms/spelling asking in what vowel they end and how many syllables the adjectives have (2 min) I use the examples in the word for pronunciation. I pronounce, ask which words are stressed, which syllable is stressed and make them drill after me twice all together and then individually. (4 minutes)

Controlled Practice (8-9 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I share my screen and the link to the chat. We do the first example together I tell students to complete the sentences individually. I give them 5 minutes. I put them to BOR to check answers. 2 min I call them to the main session, shows them the answers and ask for questions,

Free Practice (8-9 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I share my screen and the link to the chat. I tell students to think about the questions for 1-2 minutes using superlatives. I put them to BOR in groups of 3 and tell them to talk and ask each other. If there is time I switch them with new classmates. If not in the groups of 3 they all have time to talk. I monitor the rooms and jot down mistakes. (5 minutes) I call them back, say what interesting things I heard etc and go on to do DEC for (3-4 min) I thank the students and pass on to Miriam.
