Epigraph: There are three types of lessons: The one we plan to teach; the one we actually teach; and the one we wish we had taught.” – Unknown.

Student Context

Number of students: 20  Approx age range of sts: 8  Sts' level of English: A1 (elementary level/beginners)

Sts' approx. purposes in learning English: to understand English speech (of their level), to know letters, to write letters and words, to copy sentences, to read simple words, word-combinations and short texts, to make simple dialogues, to pronounce words, word-combinations and short sentences. They learn English because it is a part of their school program. They want to study well and get good marks. But some of them are already very interested in learning a foreign language and want to know it perfectly.

Source of materials (including course book): textbook by M.Z.Biboletova, workbook, teacher’s book, CD, pictures, PC, projector, realia (stuffed animals)

Aims of the lesson, with learning outcomes

By the end of the lesson learners will be able to make nouns plural, distinguish between singular and plural nouns

Main: to introduce plural nouns to students, to gain understanding of the terms “singular” and “plural”, to investigate and learn spelling of words with “s” for plurals, to read quickly

Sub-Aims: to revise animals and familiar words ( e.g. a cat , a dog, a parrot, a crocodile, a tiger, an elephant, a lion, a monkey, a bear, a cockerel, etc.), numerals (1-12), adjectives, colours

Means of assessing achievement of aims: visual aids (pictures), toys (stuffed animals):

TPR, S.A.R.S. strategy (select, adapt, reject, supplement); exercises, a pptx presentation, worksheets_____

Anticipated problems with learners and activities

(NOT grammar or lexis)

1. 20 students – they are not divided into groups (few teachers)

2. Low motivation of some students to study English

3. Sometimes students are too noisy and active

Strategies to deal with each problem


1. Trying to pay attention to each student, teaching online

2. I try to demonstrate real life situations so that students could feel where in practice the perceived knowledge can be applied

3. I try to make my lessons vivid, exciting and interesting

Personal action points for teaching: To make my lessons exciting, vivid and interesting, to arouse my learners’ interest, to use every opportunity for self-development, to grow personally, to pay attention to discipline in my lessons, to maintain activity of my learners, to see the weakest points of my students’ knowledge and to change the situation, to achieve  (almost) everything I have planned, to make a further plan, to make examples (of the rule needed) effective, memorable and meaningful), to analyse my mistakes at the lesson and the lesson itself, to improve my methods of teaching, to use different strategies, to apply all my knowledge, that I acquired at different courses ("Integrating Critical Thinking Skills in the Exploration of Culture in an EFL setting", “Teaching English to Young Learners”, “Exploring Web 2.0 Tools for Classroom Teaching and Professional Development”, “TESOL Methodology”, “Teaching Grammar Communicatively”) at the lessons.

A. HOW YOU WILL PRESENT THIS STRUCTURE:


MODEL SENTENCE (extracted from your text): a cat-cats, a dog – dogs, a parrot-parrots, a crocodile-crocodiles, a tiger-tigers, an elephant-elephants, a lion-lions, a monkey-monkeys, a bear-bears, a cockerel-cockerels, etc.


CONTEXT (of the lesson/from the text): It is an additional lesson. Children have one elective lesson a week. I try to give them additional material on the subject using a lot of strategies. I teach this lesson after Lesson 54 in the textbook by Biboletova (we only have such a textbook in the library). Children like these lessons very much. They always attend them with great pleasure.

My students already know the names of some animals. I try to teach them plural forms of the nouns. They all attend my extra classes.


B. MEANING: You see, some children don’t understand if we should add –s to all the nouns in plural. E.g. a bee – bees, a pet – pets. They often ask me questions if we should do something with the last letter “e”. My aim is to make the rule clear to them.


C. CONCEPT CHECK QUESTIONS FOR YOUR MODEL/S ABOVE: (remember to write the answers)


1.    How will I engage learners or arouse their interest in what is to follow?

(Answer: By using visual and audial aids)


2. How will I introduce the target grammar item? How will I situate it/contextualize it?    (Answer: By using pictures and flashcards)


3. What examples will I give? How can I make sure that the examples are effective, memorable and meaningful?    (Answer: I will see it by the way my students answer, they will do some exercises and I will see the result)


4. How will I check learners’ understanding?    (Answer: By using pictures and tasks)


D. STRUCTURE

A nouns + -s + plural noun     

FORM: the 2nd form of a secondary school;

Lesson – 45 minutes                             


 

E. PRONUNCIATION: Some children don’t pronounce the ending –s correctly. My aim is to teach them to do it properly.


 

F. ANTICIPATED PROBLEMS WITH…


Meaning: Students don’t know the meaning of some words as they do not do homework properly and do not demonstrate high level of knowledge of English

Form: Students don’t understand how we form plural nouns

Pronunciation: Students cannot distinguish between the voiced and voiceless sound [s]/[z] – it is difficult to understand that one and the same letter S can give different sounds

AND SOLUTIONS (refer to CCQs on the next page where needed)

I show them pictures

 

The rule is given in the presentation


I read plural forms, they repeat the words after me

 





LEXIS/FUNCTIONS


Lexis: words, collocations, phrases, expressions & idioms. + (verb/noun etc.)


Why is this item of lexis ecessary? What task does it help?


Pronunciation considerations:

Transcriptions, stress & intonation.


Examples/Concept check questions (include answers)

How will you clarify and check meaning?

a cat-cats, a dog – dogs, a parrot-parrots, a crocodile-crocodiles, a tiger-tigers, an elephant-elephants, a lion-lions, a monkey-monkeys, a bear-bears, a cockerel-cockerels

These items of lexis are necessary because they help students to understand the rule.

The teacher pays attention to the pronunciation of the nouns in plural: we should read the –s [s] after voiceless consonants and [z] after voiced ones.

By using pictures: one animal and a lot of animals.They already know the following words: a cat, a dog, a parrot, a crocodile, a tiger, an elephant, a lion, a monkey, a bear, a cockerel, a fox, a fish, a hen, a bee, a snake, a mouse, a duck, a frog, a pig, a rabbit (their homework was to learn the words)

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve



These items of lexis are necessary because learners repeat them.




Angry, big, funny, lazy, merry, nice


These items of lexis are necessary because learners repeat them.




Blue, green, grey, pink, sad


These items of lexis are necessary because learners repeat them.
