I will ask the sts "What is today?" I expect them to guess, the day of the week, the date, and the month.
I will recite the days of the week and ask students to repeat, then write the days of the week on the board.
Teacher will recite the months out loud and ask students to repeat. Then teacher will write the months on the board.
Have students stand in two lines in front of the white board. Put up the months chart 1-12 (projector). Tell students to write the month corresponding with the number (in order) on the board as they move to the back of the line every student has a chance to write on the board. The team who finished first will correct spelling wins!
Elevator power point presentation with listening/spelling of ordinal numbers up to 30. Students must repeat after the recording for each slide. After slide 30 students will be randomly called on to match the number of the elevator floor with the vocabulary. (Three- 3rd, Nine- 9th)
Write an example sentence on the board (When is your birthday? My birthday is on the 12th of March). Ask random students when their birthdays are.
Choose one student to model the activity with the teacher in front of the class. Separate students in new pairs by numbering 1-6? (student pair numbers can change with class size. Have students sit back to back, give students cards A and B. Write a model sentence on the board (Q: When is John's Birthday? A: John's birthday is on March 3rd).
