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.
