Who is your family 2?
To provide clarification of the possessive 's in the context of family
To provide gist reading practice using a text about family
Procedure (24-39 minutes)
Ask students how big their family is with some simple follow up questions. Warm up the target language.
Students will read a family tree text quickly and then with the class mark out the names that are blank on the tree.
Students will be given time alone with the text and a form to fill out online to answer a fill in the blank style set of questions using a word bank.
We are going to look over three uses of the 's- possessive, has, and is, looking at a few examples. We will cover the meaning of 's in that way. We practice form together by placing the 's in its absence over a few sentences. We return to meaning by understanding what type of 's was used. We explicitly go over the 's on the next slide with actual definition.
Students will be given another worksheet to fill out in which they use the possessive 's. If there is time, they will compare answers in a break out room.
Students will use a light script to discuss with one another their family, asking questions and taking notes.
