(focus on the adjectives write them on the WB but don't write the superlative form).
- with one student, give the sts a model conversation talking about family members by using using the adjectives of the previous stage. Ask different questions to find out more information. - ask the sts to work in pairs to talk about their family members and describe them by using different adjectives. - ask sts to tell you what they find out about each other.
- give the sts pictures to write sentences comparing those in the picture. - ask the sts to work in group (as many as possible) - monitor the sts to find the mistakes for delayed error correction. - ask the sts to give you their feed back by listening to their sentences. Write their errors for delayed correction)
- divide the sts into two groups A and B. - nominate one students to start the game. -the nominated student form the group is going to say one adjective, the second is going to put it in a comparative form, the third is going to repeat the adjective, the comparative and the superlative forms. - the same group is going to give a different adjective, the second group is going to repeat what the first group do. -
-ask the sts to work in pairs to fill in the gaps in the text by using adjectives form the box (bad- good- lazy- beautiful- busy- intelligent-help- fat- thing-far). - check the sts answers. - do error correction, if there, by eliciting the correct adjective for the sentence.
