Procedure (26-59 minutes)
The teacher walks in, greets the ss saying: "Hello. How are you?" and then, as if surprised at the response, asks each student "How are you?" in order to elicit different answers, writes them on the board one by one. In case of failing to get any different answers, the teacher elicits letters to form up the responses such as "great, all right, OK, very well, not bad" gesturing to indicate different connotations of each response and drilling after each of them. The students make conversations in pairs, using the written responses on the board.
SS listen to a recording and compare their notes in pairs. The teacher asks them to practise again.
The teacher shows the students a picture that indicates four different times of the day -morning, afternoon, evening and night- and elicits response as to what they might be indicating and asks them to work in pairs in order to write down how they can greet people within each of the time shown. The teacher provides feedback and drills.
The teacher gives the students a fill in the gaps handout and asks them to work in pairs. The teacher elicits answers and plays the recording to check the answers. The teacher provides feedback.
The teacher goes back to the picture about the different times of the day, introduces the question "What do you do in the ...?" and asks the students to work in groups to find verbs or phrases about what they do within each particular time span. The teacher writes down different activities under each section, such as "have breakfast" under the "morning" section. The aim is to elicit at least ten activities in total, yet the teacher helps to increase the number in case of need. The teacher drills each elicited element.
The teacher provides a "fill in the blanks" paragraph in order to familiarize the students with talking about daily routines and asks them to work in pairs to complete the task. The teacher provides whole class feedback in the end.
The teacher asks stand up in pairs and create a dialogue using to the phrases they pick from the phrase box, using all the instructions that have been included until that moment. The teacher asks each pair to act the dialogues out.
The teacher says a phrase or a word related to the subject of the day and uses it in a sentence, and then asks the students to the contribute by saying theirs and using what they have said in a sentence one by one.
