Step I Lead-in
Ask several Ss who are good at drawing to draw “the sun, rain, cloud, wind, leaves, snow” on the Bb. (If Ss can’t understand you, maybe you can say them in Chinese.) Then:
T: (Point to the picture of the sun.) This is the sun. (Write it in the middle of the Bb. Ss read it.) The sun is hot. How is the weather?
Ss: It’s sunny.
T: Is it hot?
Ss: Yes, it is.
T: (Point to the picture of the wind.) This is wind. (Write it in the middle of the Bb.)The wind is blowing the tree’s leaves. (Have Ss repeat them.) How is the weather?
Ss: It’s windy.
T: Is it cool?
Ss: Yes, it is.
Learn the words “rain, cloud, snow” with the same way.
Pay attention to: (n.—adj.)
Sun — sunny; wind — windy; rain — rainy; snow — snowy; cloud — cloudy.
The last five words all end with “y”.
Step II Presentation
Show some pictures on the screen one by one. Ss make up dialogues in pairs.
S1: Look at the snow! How is the weather?
S2: It’s snowy / cold.
S1: Is it cold / snowy?
S2: Yes, it is.
S3: Look at the cloud! How is the weather?
S4: It’s cloudy. (Maybe Ss can say it’s going to rain.)
S3: Is it windy?
S4: No, but it’s cool.
Step III Vocabulary practice
T: Look at Ex. 1 (c) on Page 69. Here are five sentences with blanks. Fill in the blanks with the words given.
Students work alone to fill in the blanks. When they’ve finished, ask
some students to read these sentences. Correct any mistakes they may have. Then let students make their own sentences with these words.
Step IV Presentation
At first, Ss review days of the week together.
Then show Ss a Chinese calendar.
T: Look here! What is the date today?
Ss: It’s December 15th.
T: What day is it today? (Write it on the Bb and explain it to the class. Help Ss to answer it with “It is……”)
Ss: It’s Thursday.
T: Good. What day is it today? It’s Thursday, December 15th. Is it
Ss: No, it isn’t.
T: Is it cloudy?
Ss: No, it isn’t.
T: How is the weather today?
Ss: It’s fine /sunny today.
T: What day was it yesterday?
Ss: It was Wednesday, December 14th. (Remind them to pay attention to “was”.)
T: How was the weather yesterday?
Ss: It was rainy.
Pay attention to the answer with the correct day of the week, then the month and the ordinal number.
Ss practise it with the calendar. They present it to the whole class: S1: What day is it?
S2: It is Monday, May 18th.
S3: What day is it?
S4: It is Friday, August 26th.
Step V Competition
What day is it?
It’s a game to review days of the week, months and ordinal numbers. Put your cards for numbers (not ordinals) from one to thirty-one, months of the years and days of the week in the front of the class. Divide the class into two teams. Ask for a volunteer from each team. The volunteer from Team 1 indicates, in any order, a month, a day of the week and a number. This volunteer then asks “What day is it?” The volunteer from
Team 2 tries to answer with the correct day of the week, then the month and the ordinal number. Two more volunteers come forward. Keep score. Give a point for each part of the answer that is correct and another point for putting all parts of the answer in the correct order (for a maximum of four points).
Step VI Reading
Play the audiotape. Let Ss read after it.
1. The wind is blowing the tree’s leaves.
leaves 是leaf 的复数形式。 英语中以f, fe 结尾的名词变复数时？
要将f, fe变成ves. e.g. knife—knives.
2. This is a cloud and rain. cloud 常做不可数名词？表示“云”？也用作可数名词？前面用不定冠词a？表示“一片云”。
