Teaching about the Past simple to beginners? How can you make sure you find a relevant context to engage them?
How about having the context, the vocabulary and the grammar in just one place with explanations, exercises and feedback to teach about the Past simple and school?
This flexible resource will bring English alive in your classroom and it will help you teach teenagers and adults about music and the Past simple for the affirmative form and questions. This resource is aimed at helping teachers to complement their textbook or to give enough material for those who are not lucky enough to have access to ESL textbooks/material.
The resource contains a powerpoint with 28 slides with clear explanations at the bottom of each one of them to give you a step-by-step explanation about the progression of the lesson. The exercises are corrected to save you time!
The resource also contains an activity booklet for students with 10 pages so that they keep a record of their learning.
The approach is communicative to allow students to develop their speaking skills but it also contains reading and writing activities to consolidate their grammatical skills and improve their writing skills.
You will find different types of activities to allow a greater differentiation in your class:
- A text with questions as a starter to review about BE at the Simple past
- Questions/answers about music preferences in pairs
- A quiz about music
- A video about a famous band
- A true/false
- A text to reorder and also to complete with the verb at the right tense
- A grammar point about the Past simple of regular verbs (explanation about use and formation of affirmative sentences and questions)
- A grammar point about the pronunciation of –ED at the end of verbs
- 4 practices about the Past simple with correction
- Questions/Answers about old pictures of famous singers as teenagers
- A matching up interview
- A game with a grid to fill in
- A survey as plenary
- A review of objectives
I suggest you use the activity booklet that goes with it so that your students can keep a written track of their learning!
