The teacher's greeting. Good morning, students! I'm glad to see you. How are you?
Students revise homophones. First, students listen to the word pairs, the, they repeat them. The teacher gives the definitions of the homophones if it is necessary. The pairs of the words are on the blackboard (or in the handouts):
□ Air — heir [еэ]
□ Aren't — aunt [a;nt]
□ Allowed — aloud [a'laud]
□ Ate — eight [eit]
□ Alms — arms [a:mz]
Checking on homework
Students (selectively) read their letters.
Game "What's the holiday?"
The teacher prepares pairs of the cards with holidays (in Great Britain) and their symbols. Students are divided into three or four groups, n ad each group gets the set of the cards. Students have to match holidays and symbols, and present the result. The first group finished the task is a winner. The teacher can uses cards like these:
There are the same sets of the cards for each group. Each picture is on the separate card and the cards are mixed.
Introducing the topic
Teacher presents the topic of the lesson with the text about holidays (ox. 1, p. 172). The teacher has to explain the difference between public holidays and festivals.
Students read the text in three groups. Then, in groups students make a plan (notes) to the text, and after reading each group shares information.
Students read the first part have to add some information about one more holiday, except Halloween and May Day.
After-reading activity. First, students focus on gist. They do ex. 2, p. 173 and express their agreement or disagreement with the statements. Students have to explain their choice.
Answers: 1.1 disagree with this statement, because English people celebrate Halloween on the 31st of October.
2. That's right. Children go from house to house, knock at the door and ask "Trick or treat?"
3. This is false, because on the first Sunday in May people put up a maypole tree.
4.1 fully agree with it ... Variants are possible.
Then, students go over to ex. 3, p. 173 and focus on details. They have to read and complete the sentences.
Answers: 1 public holidays; festivals; 2 the 31st of October; 3 lanterns of pumpkins; 4 candies, fruit, cakes and other tasty things; 5 flowers, dances, games; 6 the May Queen.
The teacher makes movements with the students. Teacher uses any rhyme for physical exercises. For example:
I'll tell you a story About Jack-a-Nory, And now my story's begun;
I'll tell you another
About Jack and his brother.
And now my story's done.
Students work in three or four groups, but the teacher rearranges students in groups (group exchange students). Each group gets "its" holiday and makes a list of activities people usually do on these holidays. Then, each group presents its story about the holiday (ex. 4, p. 173).
Work in pairs. The teacher divides students into pairs. Their task is to read the dialogue and act out their own one (ex. 5, p. 173).
