The Procedure of the Lesson
I. Organizing a lesson. Greetings.
1) The Icebreaker Game
The teacher comes into the classroom and pupils make a circle. The teacher asks pupils to turn left/right and say “Hello! Have a nice day!” to their neighbors (P1 – P2 – P3 …: Hello! Have a nice day!)
2) Sand - glass
T: During this lesson you will deepen and widen your knowledge on the topic given. But first, look at this sand-glass. What are your expectations of the lesson? Write them down on these sheets of paper and stick them to the top of the sand-glass.
Teacher: It’s time to say “Good morning!” And start our lesson.
Pupils: Good morning!
Teacher: Good morning, smiling faces. How are you? OK?! I hope we'll have a wonderful time together. Listen! Somebody is knocking. Who are you? Come in, please. Oh, dear, do you know who he is? (Children watch the story and guess). http://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/en/short-stories/the-hungry-dragon
Pupils: He is a hungry dragon.
Teacher: How are you, Dragon? What are you going to do now?
Dragon: Well I am really hungry I would like to invite our children to “Food Quiz” to the British Council.
Teacher: Really? When is it?
Dragon: Just now. Today we are going to have the
“Food Quiz”, test your food knowledge and decide who can cook the tastiest, the most exotic and the best food for me. They will get these diplomas. He introduces the teams and the captains. Then the rules are explained: the Quiz consists of five parts. In them teams will get points for the right answers.
II. Warmer (writing and critical thinking)
Dragon: Don’t forget to say “Bingo” to be the first!
III. Reading and Practising Grammar:
1) The teacher explains the rule:
How do you count uncountable nouns? You can't, but you can measure them. You have to use “counters”!
You can put something into a container to count it, but the thing you're counting doesn't
take the plural form. The container takes the plural form:
How much ....? = uncountable nouns
For example: How much coffee do you drink?
How many ....? = countable nouns
For example: How many cups of coffee do you drink?
Teacher: I say nouns and the groups in turn add "how much" or "how many".
Dragon: Each correct answer gets 1 point. The group with the most points is the winner in this activity.
Group B S1 how much cheese?
Group A S2 : how many water?
Teacher: Wrong! "How much water?" Group A gets no point.
Group B S1 : how many eggs?
4) Fill in "How much" or "How many":
1. How much / How many bread do you want?
2. How much / How many eggs are there in the fridge?
3. How much / How many biscuits have you got?
4. How much / How many milk do you want?
5. How much / How many butter is there on the plate?
6. How much / How many glasses are there on the table?
IV. Relaxation (Listening Comprehension):
