To provide the students with the functional language so that they could use in their real life situations
To provide gist and detailed listening practice about four weekends
Procedure (31-45 minutes)
The ss will be shown a picture and then will come up with words so that I can elicit the word Weekend. I will tell them that I had a very busy weekend because I had to work on my projects.
For this stage, the ss will be shown four pictures and asked to guess who had A) a great weekend B) a quiet weekend C) a busy weekend D) a terrible weekend The ss should look at the pictures and try to guess. Then they should tell their partners why they chose that item.
Now that they have guessed, they will be given a HO and asked to listen to the people from the pictures talking about their weekend activities and see if they have guessed correctly and then fill the gaps. They should be able to understand who is talking to who. Next, they should check their answers with their peers.
The ss will be given a HO with some T/F questions written on it. They should listen to find the specific information then answer the T/F questions. When they answered individually, they should check their answers with their peers. Finally, I will give the answers.
First, the ss will be given a set of slips with the functional language written on them so that they match them with their meanings (in pair). Those who finished earlier, should come to the board and put the adjectives in the right column. After they learned the meaning of the phrases, they will be given a HO so that they need to match the sentences with their answers. Then, I will play the listening and ask them to listen and check their answers.
In this stage of the plan, I will drill the ss in how to pronounce the functional language with the correct intonation. Then, I will ask for choral and individual repetition.
The ss will be put in pairs. Then, each student will be given a HO with different sentences written on them. The ss will take turns to say the sentences and respond to their friends using the functional language in the previous activity.
The ss should walk around the class and ask their peers if they had a busy weekend, quiet weekend, terrible weekend or a great weekend using the questions, 'What did you do last weekend? or How was your last weekend?' they should use the functional language as well.
