The link for the activity will be shared in the chatbox. ● Students will read the examples and complete the sentence using the key language from the board. Every word is an adverb of frequency. (e.g. 'My brother gets up at 8:00 am every day. He ________ gets up early.' The student has to choose 'always') ● The teacher will conduct an OCFB to verify the correct answers.

Speaking Activity (4-5 minutes) • To practice speaking and listening using the target language.

● Students will go into breakout rooms in groups of 3 to practice. Every student will choose one of the examples on the board for making a question to each partner. (e.g. How often do you cook breakfast? – I sometimes cook breakfast because I don't have much time.) ● The teacher will demo the task with a student using the example of the slide. ICQ: - Will you ask your two partners or just one partner? - Just one partner. - Are you going to use all the situations or just one situation? - Just one situation.
