Then students will come up with examples of their own for each T-Ss category Ss will write their 3 sentences on board Post: Ss will compare the sentences Ss they created Pre: Tell students they will be T-Ss constructing their own sentences using strips of paper to make various types of Simple past, past progressive, or combination sentences. T will demonstrate an example. The group to make all the sentences correct first wins. During: Ss will put strips of paper in Ss the right order to make a sentence that is in the simple past, past progressive, or both. Ss will be in 3 teams, and must choose a team name. For example, one group of cards might say I cooking phone when rang was dinner the The correct order would be I was cooking dinner when the phone rang The team to make each group of sentences correctly first wins Post: Ask Ss if they have any questions T-Ss because Activity 3 is closely related. How did Ss do in this activity? Did it go quickly or slowly? This should be review for them.

Materials: Overhead, graphic organizer, strips of paper, computer, projector Anticipated Problems: Technology can either work or failI will have the Jeopardy game played on the board if the computer doesnt work and should the overhead be broken I can write on the board instead. Also these activities might take more time than anticipated. Contingency Plans (what you will do if you finish early, etc.): If I finish early I will have students complete exercises in the book (pg 19) or workbook (pg 10). Ss also have a vocabulary and reading lesson that could be done in the book.

Post-Lesson Reflections: I think the lesson went well overall. But for the first game there was some confusion with which cards went with which number. Next time I will color code or label them. Also, Im afraid it might have been too easy for part of the class, but a bit advanced for other students. I dont want anyone to be bored. I do think they enjoyed the game, though.
