I have almost completed my 140 hours TEFL online course and would like to ask your advice on one of the questions I am having problems with. I am obviously not asking you for the answers, but I would like some feedback on how you think my final checkpoint questions are coming along. I am trying to seek out professional advice, as I have attempted this checkpoint twice and if I submit again with wrong answers, I fail.
So please, any advice you can give would be most helpful.
Write a lesson plan for a 45-minute-long lesson based on learning vocab of popular hobbies and to review adverbs of frequency. They are at an elementary level.
"1. Warmer: Play snakes and ladders to revise adverbs of frequency. T-S S-T 5 minutes
Use relia objects or mime to elicit new vocabulary:
e.g. Football (bring in football or mime kicking one), drawing (bring in pencil or draw on the board), watching tv (Draw one on the board or mime switching channels with a remote) , shopping (Shopping bag, mime one) etc… S-T T-S 8 minutes
Introduce new target language to students combined ideas of previous lesson works (adverbs of frequency) to today’s subject (Hobbies & verbs), using adverbs of frequency scale to aid.
e.g. I always/sometimes/never play football
Each sentence is repeated several times. Plenary: Review any doubts T-S 7 minutes
I ask students individually how often they do the hobbies stated in the Target language; asking them to write on the adverbs of frequency scale. Ask other students whether they have the right placement T-S S-T S-S 5 minutes
5. Controlled Practice: Pair works. Find out which of the new target language hobbies do they accomplish most frequently and least frequently.
Plenary: Ask students what their findings are. T-S S-S S-T 5 minutes
6. Production: Group work. Students are asked to play a game of two truths and one lie, using the Target Language and adverbs of frequency. They are asked to tell the rest of the class two hobbies+ adverbs of frequency that are truths and one hobby+ adverbs of frequency that is a lie, the class has to guess which ones are the truths and which one is the lie. S-S 10 minutes
8. Homework: Get students to ask their mother and father what their hobbies are, introduce phrases 'My dad/mum likes....' T - S 5 minutes"
Thankyou in advance, I appreciate any friendly advice on the subject.
