12.8.14 Grammar: Forming Questions using Did/Didn't
A-1 Beginner level
After this lesson, students should be familiar with the grammar that would enable them to construct basic questions using Did/Didn't and understand how to employ them to get information they need.
Students, will become comfortable asking and responding to yes/no questions by using the words Did/Didn't in the past simple tense within the context of a conversation.
Procedure (35-48 minutes)
Hand out HO, slowly and clearly enunciate instructions for exercise "7a. Make correct sentences about your day yesterday. For example: Yesterday I DID get up late, so I checked number one because it is correct for me. I corrected number two because: I DIDN'T have eggs for breakfast. I had toast and coffee." Please complete the rest on your own. (Monitor progress, dispense encouragement and praise). If you have done all of the questions please compare your sentences with your neighbor (part b).
Sts will have seen an activity on on the grammar and forms of past negative given by Marieke, and in activity number seven I started the lesson out with; I will elicit for MFP.
Activity is on their HOs, have students work in pairs' and take note of their partners' answers. Monitor and give delayed FB to clarify after asking sts about the outcome of their investigation, Where did you partner go?.... How did they get there? Where did they stay? Who did they go with? What did they do there? Did they have a good time?
Write past simple questions on the board, give example sentence: Did you have a good time? along w/ short answers 'Yes I did./No I didn't." and "where did you go? and What did you do? elicit for MFP, drill.
Refer sts to the back side of their HO, activity four, have them work individually, by themselves, walk them through the example, which is : maybe write have/a/did/holiday/nice/you on the board and the answer: Did you have a nice holiday? What did you do last Sunday?, Did you go out last night? Did you have a nice weekend? Did you watch TV last night?, model and have students practice saying the questions. Have students practice asking the questions to their partners.
