Present simple: Questions with do
This ESL lesson plan is designed for elementary-level students and focuses on teaching them how to form questions using do and construct appropriate responses. By the end of the lesson, students will have a clear understanding of using these common structures, which will help them improve their basic conversation skills.
To introduce the topic, we begin with a boardwork example that lays the foundation for understanding the target language. As the lesson progresses, students move on to low-resource activities, such as working through grammar exercises and participating in collaborative speaking tasks. To ensure retention and add a touch of fun, we end the lesson with a classroom game that revisits and reinforces the lesson's key objectives.
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.
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.
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.
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.
