BASELINE: ORIENTATION COURSE FOR FORM ONE, 2019: TOPIC 2. MY DAY


By the end of the students should be able to use simple English Structures:
To talk and write about their daily routines (I wake up at 6 o’clock/I wash my face at 6: 15 am)
To demonstrate understanding of another person’s daily routine (He wakes up at 6 o’clock/They wake clean the class at 6:40 am)
Understand and use the time to say when things happen every day (At 10:00 am we have a break time/At 2:30 pm we disperse)

ALSO:


TELLING TIME
Ask students: ‘What time is it?’ (Check their responses)
In this aspect, the students need to understand how to tell time.
MATERIALS: Watches (digital and analog), students’ watches, a teacher’s watch, pictures showing watches, etc.
  1. Show them pictures of watch showing different times, or
  2. Write different times on the board, or
  3. Take watches with you in the class (both digital and analog watches)

WHAT WE DO EVERYDAY
Tell them today we will learn what we do every day.
Show them pictures of the person or people who are: cleaning, playing, eating, running, walking, reading, praying, etc.
Pick one picture after another; show to them by pointing to the particular picture and ask:
  • What is he doing? (If the person is male)
  • What is she doing? (if the person is female)
  • What are they doing? (Plural)

For each question, observe and correct their responses.
EXPECTED RESPONSES:

Ask students the following questions and check out their responses, and list them on the board:

  • Do you study every day?
  • Do you pray every day?
  • What time do you have a breakfast?
  • What time do you have a lunch?

Allow students to interview each other these questions. Put them in pairs and help them list the things they do on the blackboard.
