Procedure (45-55 minutes)
I will start with talking about me and my names and nicknames. I will then explain that the names I used are called nicknames. I will ask them to tell me one of my nicknames, Then ask if anybody else has a nickname.
I will then tell the students that we will listen to a recording. I will then give them the hand out and tell them to look at Susan in the picture. I will explain we will be listening to a tape about Susan and her nicknames. We will then listen to the tape. I will then ask the class which name she didn't like. I will then explain that we will listen to the tape again and doing section 2 on the hand out. I will then explain what they will need to do.
I will then ask the class to write down on a piece of paper what different names that people call them. I will then ask then to get in pairs and tell each other and to tell them their best and least favourite names.
I will ask the students to copy the table on the hand out. I will then discuss with the class if they could add other headings. I will then ask them to write down the names of their family members. They will then get in to pairs and ask them to answer the questions in section 3. I will give an example.
To finished we will look at long vowel sounds. I will get them to listen to the tape and think about which name in the group has a different vowel sound. The i will ask them to discus on their table what the thought, We will then listen again and to check our answers, Then once we are sure of the odd ones, I will ask them to get in to table groups and put them in the correct group. I have hold outs of phonemic letters and I will go through these to help with vowel sounds.
