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 school and the Past simple of the verb BE. 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 27 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 9 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 grid to fill in about school (staff, objects…) as a starter
- Questions/answers matching up
- A video with multiple answers to choose from
- A matching up between pictures and school vocabulary
- A reading activity with paragraphs to reorder about school
- A grid to compare school now and school in the past
- A classification of positive and negative comment about school
- A reading with a True/False activity
- A grammar point about the Past simple of BE (explanation about use, filling gap, affirmative, negative and question form grids)
- 3 practices about the Past simple of BE (filling gap/ short answers/long answers writing)
- 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!
