Using have got
Welcome to our beginner lesson on the use of 'have got'. In this lesson, students will get to grips with this common English construction, reviewing its structure and usage to convey possession or attributes.
The lesson plan offers suggested boardwork to visually introduce the target language. It also includes several low-resource ESL classroom activities that provide students with opportunities to use 'have got' in practical contexts, such as inquiring about someone's family and describing their own. To solidify understanding and add an element of fun, the lesson concludes with a suggested classroom game tailored to reinforce the target language.
Use of the board
Presenting complex language on the board can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially for new teachers. That's why each plan includes helpful suggestions and notes on how to effectively present the target language of the lesson.
The TEFLHandbook library prioritises collaborative and interactive classroom activities that reduce the amount of paper and photocopying needed.
Interview a partner
The majority of our ideas involve little to no preparation or photocopying. Teach your best class with little more than a whiteboard and some students.
What have you got?
Our approach will help you optimise your teaching time and minimise reliance on paper-based materials, allowing you to focus on leading engaging and interactive lessons with your students.
In the bag
Games are a fantastic way to wrap up any successful class. Our lesson plans contain at least one idea for ready-to-play classroom games that reinforce the lesson's target language.
