To introduce and practice functional language for personal possessions in the context of "What's in the bag?"
To provide the students with an opportunity to practice their listening skills.
Procedure (39-57 minutes)
Write three categories on the WB. Have students in groups write as many words as they can in each category in one minute. Find out which group came up with the most correct answers!
I will have a bag filled with the vocabulary shown on the vocabulary handout. - Show the item and get students to identify it. - Drill the pronunciation and word stress. Vary forms of drilling move to diff groups, change volume, chose individuals. - AFTER DRILLING write each word on the WB.
Put students into groups. Ask students to look in their bag or purse and take 1 or 2 things out to share with their group. If they don't have a bag or purse they can point out an item they are wearing or maybe have with them. Go around the class and take note of any difficult vocabulary.
Explain the listening task clearly - Students will listen to three different conversations between two housemates Mark and Lee. In each conversation Lee is looking for something, listen carefully to each conversation and write on the HO what he is looking for. Give the HO AFTER the instructions. Play recording, repeat if necessary. Write answers on WB. Listen again and match the words in the box to the letters A-C. Have 3 students write answers on WB.
Have students write the name of the item underneath the picture on the handout. Peer check for earlier finishers. WRITE NUMBERS ON WB Have the students write the answers on the WB next to the appropriate number.
