Exposure (7-9 minutes) • Word order of the present simple negative

Instructions: Chest HO Individually/one by one I want you too take look at this chart and notice the word order. Then I want you to write the sentence in numbers 1 and 2 in the order that you think they go in. While students are doing this T will put up the chart and have the early finishers come up and tack the words in the order that they go in. FB: Fix errors and pronunciation.

Controlled Task (3-5 minutes) • Making sentences negative.

Instructions: Chest HO in this exercise you are going to be working by yourselves, one by one and you are going to read the sentences. You will check the ones that are true for you and make the ones that are not true for you negative.On WB ex: I phone my family everyday. I tick that. Do you phone your family everyday? (no) so you write "I don't phone my family every day." Now I want you to start. (are you working in pairs? no, one by one)

Productive Task (5-8 minutes) • Teach review ways to agree and disagree

Instructions: With the person next to you, in pairs I want you to check your answers and compare your sentences. On the WB, T will write *Me too./I don't. *Me neither/ Oh, I do. These are another form of short answers you can use. for example if your friends says " I go out at the weekends" you can say "Me too" or "I don't go out at the weekends, you would say me neither." Once student have checked in pairs T will call on random pairs and and have read their answers.

We have Do+ subject + infinitive....(the rest of the sentences) Your short answer for that would be: Yes, I do or No, I don't. I want you to work in pairs and fill in the chart using the sentences in B. While students are working T will draw chart on WB and have early finishers come up and put the answers in. FB: We will make any corrections that is needed. Let Ss know that short answers are very common in spoken English. ICQs: Can we say Yes, I do go? (no) Yes, I do..We don't repeat the infinitive.(go) Can we say Yes, I does. (no)
