Teaching Practice 2
Beginner, A1 level
Functional language for asking/answering about ages, numbers 21-101.
Listening and speaking about numbers, about ages of people and things.
Procedure (39-47 minutes)
I will put some flash cards with names of some people and some things and flash cards with numbers on the board, and will ask them to match the numbers with the people or things in pairs.
I will distribute work sheet with numbers on them and ask them to write the numbers, to test their knowledge on numbers before teaching them. After they finish, I will ask some of them to come up to the board and write the answers and then do a whole class feedback.
I will distribute the handouts to students to listen and repeat the numbers written on the paper. And then I will ask them to match the numbers with the words, and after a peer correction, then I will play the track to listen and repeat them as a whole class.
We will listen to differentiate the difference between the pronunciation of the numbers written on the work sheet, and I will focus on the stressed letter and drill the pronunciation from the students, first as a whole class, and then individually. Then we will listen again the numbers and repeat them. Again, I will ask students to read the numbers written in part pronunciation 3 and I will ask them to repeat those numbers first chorally then individually.
Before starting the listening, I will ask questions about the pictures related to the listening. I will ask them ‘What do you see?’ in order to make them generate ideas about the pictures.
I will ask them to listen carefully and match the pictures with the conversations they will listen. Then I will ask them to do a pair check, and elicit the answers quickly. Then I will distribute them the second pages of the hand outs, and ask them to read the sentences, and then to fill the gaps in the sentences while listening the same track. After that I will read the first piece of information under Language note on page 33 and elicit the others from the students
Students will listen the sentences and questions written under Functional language part 1, and will repeat it to practice the functional language. Then they will look at the pictures below and see the difference, and then we will listen about them.
I will distribute a questionnaire to students to complete the information by working with their partners. They won’t show their paper to their partners, and will complete the information missing about them, and will try to guess the information about their partners. After finishing the questionnaire, they will ask questions to check their answers about their partners if they are correct.
