BASELINE: ORIENTATION COURSE FOR FORM ONE, 2019 TOPIC 3. MY LIKES AND DISLIKES


By the end of the lesson the students will be able to:

  • Express likes and dislikes correctly (I like playing netball/He likes dancing)
  • Use short replies to questions about likes and dislikes (Yes, I do/No, I don’t)
  • Collate information in groups about favourite things and convey this information to the teacher (We like playing football/They like singing songs)
  • Analyse the likes and dislikes of the class (We like learning English/We like speaking in debates)
THE GREETING LINKS ARE ALSO HERE!
                           

INTRODUCTION ON WHAT PEOPLE ARE DOING
Provide Pictures and ask ‘What are the people doing in these pictures?’ (Responses may be; playing football, dancing, reading, doing homework, etc.)
MATERIALS: There are plenty of pictures: From newspapers, magazines (for example Fema Magazines), and you can pick any pictures in which people are doing something. Even cartoons can apply.
  • They are reading.
  • They are playing.
  • They are dancing music.
  • They are eating.
  • She is playing tennis.
  • She is speaking to the people.

NB: By using real life pictures (for example, Samatta is playing, Msuva is dribbling, Serena Williams is playing tennis, etc.) students are engaged more than using traditional book pictures.
Then ask different students:
  • Do you like playing football?
  • Do you like reading?
  • Do you like doing homework?
  • Do you like studying?

(Accept any kind of responses even if they are incorrect ones). If they fail to understand, use gestures and facial expressions to help them understand.

Guide them to understand the long and short answers as well as positive and negative answers. Encourage them to use short answers:

Write on the board: ‘I like….. ‘, ‘I don’t like……’ and then ask students to finish the sentences orally.
Table 2.
I like (good things for me)
I don’t like (bad things for me)

Also create the following chart! You can ask each students, pairs or groups.

Do you like….?
Yes, I do
No, I don’t

Be interactive. Use relevant things they like. They are the things which are either around them or things which are familiar to them. Ask students for every item on the board. Say ‘Put your hands up if you like dancing,’ and react by saying ‘Oh, dancing is very popular!’ or ‘Oh, homework is not very popular!’

Ask each student to write their favourite things in their exercise books. Guide them to use the structure: ‘I like …….’ ‘I don’t like…..’. Give them five minutes. Allow them to draw a table like Table 2 above for the easy organisation of their works.

Guide students to form groups and each group write its favourites. Their secretary should write all their favourites in five minutes. Guide them to use the Table 4 below to list the things they like and the things they don’t like:
Table 4.
We like…..
We don’t like……
We like fruits

We like sports

We like animals

We like learning English

We like travelling


Allow groups to exchange their points and each group have to report their findings before the class. They should use: ‘We like….’ and ‘We don’t like….’
Also in another practice, the groups may exchange their findings/points and each group should present the findings of other groups and they should use the structures like: ‘They like……’ and ‘They don’t like….’

CONDUCTING INTERVIEW
For more exercise, allow students to have questions and interview when they ask themselves a question, ‘Do you like…?
