Procedure (45 minutes)
T tries to elicit the word 'free time' by explaning it through examples about herself T writes ' Free time activities' on the w/b to set a context. T asks Ss what they do in their free time.
T shows pictures of many free time acitivities and tries to elicit the words. T hands out cards with words on free time activities and divides the w/b into 3 parts, indoor, outdoor acitivities and both. Ss, WC, stick the cards into the cards they belong to. T tires to understand whether Ss know the meanings of the words (concept check). If Ss can not put them in any category, it means that they do not know their meanings. If the Ss do not know the meaning of a word, she tries to explain or teach it through gestures or pictures. Ss may not know the meanings of 'indoor and outdoor', so T gives examples of some activities to teach them. CCQs: Do we play footbal at home? no It is an outdoor activity. Do we watch DVD at a park? no it is an indoor acitivity I: Put these cards into their categories. Altogether.
Ss ask about their friends' free time activities using 'Do you?! and answer using frequency adverbs. when the student gets the answer, he/she writes the name of his friend on the frequency adverb that his friend says and sticks it on the activity card. T demos this activitiy with some of the SS. I: Ask your friend whether your friends do this activity or not. Using 'Do you''. Use these words while answering. Stick the words on the activities.
