Students able to form a short, four-word sentence using an article, a noun, a verb and an adjective.
Check and correct pronunciation.
Improve confidence in speaking.
Train students how to behave in a classroom, to bring pen and paper to class and to write down new words.
First a warm up
Board some letters (a, b, c, p, t, etc). Ask for animals beginning with the letters.
Write some adjectives (about 5 – 8 depending on class ability). Last night I chose:
angry / big / small / cute / dangerous / fast / slow
Students write down these words, then complete three sentences, and read to the class:
A dog is ______ .
An elephant is _____ .
A tiger is __________ .
Erase the adjectives from the board, leaving only the first letter.
Ask the weaker students to say the adjective, which they should have written down and repeated (several times).
Example: What adjective begins with ‘a’ ?
If the student is unable to answer, homework is to write the word five times and to use it in a short sentence:
A lion is angry
