Accidents At Home, present perfect
Pre-Intermediate, B1 level
To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of family and home
Procedure (49-65 minutes)
Using mime to show what happened to my finger (I've cut my finger) to encourage Ss to ask questions about how that happened. Eliciting Ss by asking them where most accidents happen, specifically in the home.
At this stage, Ss are going to be introduced to the lesson. By using photographs, Ss will provide words based on their English knowledge so that their level will be adjusted automatically.
In pairs, Ss will talk about what objects they see in those pictures. Different suggestions are accepted. They'll be monitored and helped by giving them suggestive words. Then I'm going to write a sentence, related to the topic, on the board to introduce them to the concept of present perfect for recent events.
Continuing with the exercise to consolidate the concept. Ss will be directed to the examples, and they're asked to read the present result. Ss fill the gaps through controlled practice. They also have some time to compare before going over answers as class.
Ss should be able to use simple sentences to give information. Their performance will be assessed through a checklist.
