TEACHER’S WORDS AND ACTIONS

The teacher greets the students and gives them feedback about some
Students receive their worksheets and check their
activities they had handed in in previous lesson. (see “trabajo práctico” in attached document). After that she hands out students’ report sheets so as they have an idea about their performance so far. (See in attached document). She asks them if there are in doubts or misunderstandings as regards the activities.
performance. If in doubt, they also have the opportunity to ask about any misunderstandings.
Now the teacher invites students to open their netbooks and access:
Students play an on-line game to revise vocabulary related to food in pairs but by taking turns to perform the activity.
http://www.manythings.org/lulu/f4.html# so as to revise vocabulary related to food. In this web page, she explains that they have to click on “the eyes” to briefly see the word. After that they will have to click on the image that matches the word. If the green smiling face is shown, they have answered correctly. If a red frowning face is shown, then they have made a mistake. (The image that remains is the correct answer.) She monitors students’ performance. The teacher asks students if they remember the famous shopping street they learnt about in previous lessons. She tries to make students remember about Oxford Street. The teacher hands out worksheet #1 and asks some volunteers to read the first paragraph of activity n°1 as an introduction. Questions 1- 4 are done as a whole group. Then she invites students to access: http://www.streetsensation.co.uk/oxford/os_n01.htm She explains that they can visit virtual Oxford Street, one of the London’s famous shopping streets. They will find specific information about the shops and things that can be bought there. She demonstrates it by using the data projector on the board.
Students brainstorm ideas about what they remember of Oxford Street in London. They receive worksheet #1 and some volunteers read the paragraph in order to have a general idea about the place. They complete questions 1-4 as a whole group. Firstly, students access the web page and make a virtual visit. Secondly, they go on doing the activity in pairs, where they have to choose the correct alternative according to the information they can get from the page.
After that, she gives them some minutes to do activity n°1 in which they have to choose the correct alternative. This is a pair work activity. Once the task is finished, everything is checked as a whole group. Practice Production
Now, the teacher draws the students’ attention to activity n°2.a and explains that they have to put the dialogue in the correct order. They can have a look at the activities they did in the previous lesson (coursebook pages 36 and 37). She monitors the procedure and once the activity is finished, she asks them to work in pairs to perform activity n°2.b. She checks the activity individually.
Students work individually in order to perform activity 2.a where they have to put the conversation in the correct order.
The teacher projects and image on the board where food can be seen. She asks students what they can see there, lets them brainstorm some ideas and helps them produce complete sentences
Students talk about what they can see in the projected image.
Activity 2.b is done in pairs and students have to produce a written dialogue following the prompts.
to express existence. E.g. “So, what can you see here? Apples? How many apples? (5) Ok, there are five apples. And sugar? How much sugar is there? There is some sugar in the pot. Etc.
They gather together in pair groups and within 2’ they have to write down as many sentences as they can with the items from the image.
Now she challenges them to work in pairs and write as many sentences as they can in 2’. All sentences have to be coherent beginning with “There is or There are” and using “some or any”, “a or an”. Once the time is over she checks which group did better by asking them to read the sentences aloud.
Groups take turns to read their sentences aloud.
In order to revise most of the topics as a whole, the teacher asks students to access:
