EASY GRAMMAR LESSONS

Our lesson plans are designed to help you teach or reinforce a variety of grammar structures. They give students an
opportunity to practice their English by performing different tasks in pairs and small groups. Our lessons are aimed
primarily at lower level students and can be used with children or adults.

Each lesson consists of six activities.

1. A Written Record
This page is designed to help students organize their notes. It will enable them to keep track of all the new vocabulary
and grammar structures they will be using. After you have taught the new material, have your students write the new
words below each image. The new structures can be written in the note space provided.

2. Pair Work
Each lesson includes a pair work activity which gives students an opportunity to practice their English. All of the pair
work activities are controlled tasks; most are information gaps. Students ask questions and provide information to their
partner in order to finish the task.

3. Follow Up
Each pair work activity is followed by a written task to reinforce the new structure. The follow up task includes a series
of questions about the pair work and fill-in-the-blank drills.

4. Listening
A listening task is included in every lesson. The teacher provides information to the students. The students circle the
correct answers or fill in the blanks.

5. Group Activity
Each lesson concludes with a group activity designed to give students a chance to practice the new structure in a less
controlled situation. Group tasks may consist of class surveys,
games, or dialogues.

6. Review and Fun


Each lesson plan has one page to use for classroom review or as a homework activity. These review sheets consist of
puzzles, games, word searches, scrambles, and other fun activities.

Teachers Notes
Every document contains a teacher’s page at the end of the lesson. Some lesson plans come with instructions on how to
introduce and teach the target structure.

Flashcards
Every lesson plan comes with a complete set of flashcards.

After you’ve gone over the vocabulary and target structures, hand out the worksheets. Write
all the new words and phrases on the board and have your students copy them down on page one.
(They should write the new words below each image, and the new phrases in the notes section at
the bottom.)

in the exercise. Tell them to circle the correct adjectives and then draw a picture. As a follow

statements to the class.

Follow Up
