Abc powerpoint presentation - audios of the book - handouts

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of comparative adjectives in the context of learning about sea animals.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide gist reading practice using a text about sea animals.


Warmer/Lead-in (1-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

To ask Ss if they like animals? / Do you think all animals live on land? / what other places they live in? / (in the sea), we call them .... Sea animals. which animals do you that live under the sea? which the biggest sea animal? Write their FBK on the board.

Useful Language (4-7 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

I will teach Ss the new vocabulary about sea animals by showing them the photo of the animal and try to elicit its name. I will drill the pronunciation by using the book audio. Then they will say it individually.

Exposure (2-3 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

I will ask Ss about the voacab we had: Are they nouns or adjectives? what are nouns? Can you give me examples? (animals -people - things - places) / what if I want to describe, what will I use? (adjectives) Can you give examples of djectives?

Test (5-7 minutes) • To diagnose what Ls already know bout the target language (TL)

I will chest the handout and tell the Ss to read the text and circle any adjective they find. I will ask them to work in pairs. I will demonstrate an example for them to follow. After they finish, we will answer this together on powerpoint presentation . Check with the whole class to see if there any problems.

Teach: language clarification (5-7 minutes) • To clarify aspects about the target language (TL)

I will ask them how many sea animals did we read about? two Are they the same size? which one is small? which one is big? Are they different? when tell how different two things are it means that we compare between them and we call this Comparative Adjectives. write a sentence like "The seahorse is smaller than the whale". How did we start/ end the sentence? (elicit the form using the sentence) Make two sections on the board. There are 2 different ways to compare. explain that we count the vowels to decide. after that, I will explain the spelling rules before adding -er to some adjs

Test (2-3 minutes) • to check that Ls have improved in their knowledge of the TL. To provide an opportunity for Ls to use the TL.
