Warmer/Lead-in (3-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will ask my Ss to discuss what ingredients they like on their pizza: Show slide with picture of pizza and ingredients. -What ingredients do you like on your pizza? I will also write any other ingredients the Ss suggest. I am going to have an open-class discussion in order to listen to my Ss opinions. To begin, I will have a slide with an image of a pizza and toppings. Then, I will have an empty side where I will jot down any ideas from participating Ss.

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I am going to play an audio where the students listen to a man talking about his job. This activity will help the students get a general idea about what the functional language will be about. The students will answer the following question: What does he like about it? Answer: working outside, travelling (South America and Australia), working with animals and plant life & learning new things. The students will work individually and then we will move to open class to share their answers.

Highlighting (5-7 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I am going to guide my students through a cloze text. The students will listen to the audio again but this time for specific information abou the following phrases: 1 I like ________ outside. (working) 2 I can't stand _________ at a desk all day. (sitting) 3 I absolutely love _______. (travelling) 4 I don't like _______ in a team. I prefer working alone.

I want to be my own boss. (working) The students will work individually and then we will move to open class discussion.

Clarification (10-12 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

MEANING I am going to work with a Jamboard where Ss will focus on separating the phrases into postive and negative expressions for likes and dislikes. 1. Read the sentences. Which phrases are positive (+)? Which are negative (-)? Which are not positive or negative (?)? FORM I will move to a presentation where I am going to elicit from the students the structure of each phrase in order to clarify form. (+) I like + _________ + complement / I absolutely love + _________ + complement. / I’m keen on + __________ + complement. (-) I can’t stand + _________ + complement. / I don’t like + _________ + complement. / I hate + __________ + complement. / I ‘m not keen on + __________ + complement. (?) I don't mind _________ my hands dirty. CCQs: -Will you be happy if your hands are dirty? Yes. Will you be happy if your hands are not dirty? Yes. -Are you being polite? Yes. infinitive: I like to go to the park. PRONUNCIATION a. sentence stress I will read the sentences out loud and will ask the students to identify which words I am stressing. I will ask the students to drill.

Controlled Practice (5-7 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

During this part of the lesson, we are going to work on a controlled practice exercise. The Ss will work together in order for me to assess their knowledge and understanding of the functional language. They will do this by entering to the Forms survey via QR code or link. After this, we will come back to the main session and check answers together.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I am going to work with the students in groups and have them talk about what they like or dislike. I will share a wheel with the title 'Activities and Chores'. Students will then work in their groups in order to talk about certain activities or chores that they like or don't like. I will have them spin the wheel and a word will pop up. They will then take turns and formulate their sentences in order to answer correctly. I will be monitoring the BORs to check for any mistakes in their utterances. I am going to close the activity with a delayed error correction section where I will share with the Ss the mistakes they made while speaking to each other.
