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 negative form. 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 25 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 8 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:
- Sentences to unscramble as a starter to review about the Simple past
- A matching up between famous singers and their dates of birth/dates
- A grammar point about the use of dates
- A video clip about a song
- The same song but the original that students need to compare
- A text to reorder about Elvis Presley
- A True/False activity
- A grammar point about the Past simple of regular verbs (explanation about use and formation of negative sentences)
- 2 practices about the Past simple with correction
- 1 team game
- vocabulary about steps/events in life to reorder
- 1 speaking in pairs
- 1 pair work activity to practice questions/answers in the past
- A writing activity
- One game as a 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!
