A day to give thanks
The lesson starts with a mind map in which the student reveals hints to guess the holiday (Thanksgiving).
Video: Thanksgiving history and traditions
Prior to watching a video, the student gets familiar with vocabulary (occasion, church, voyage, etc.) and practices using it in sentences.
Next, they watch the video Thanksgiving history and traditions and complete the sentences extracted from the video using the new vocabulary (Pilgrim, crops, parade, etc.). The student then checks if the statements based on the video are true or false. This section ends with a discussion about Thanksgiving celebrations and holidays in general.
Reading: What people do on Thanksgiving
The student reads two passages about celebrating Thanksgiving within the family and answers the reading comprehension questions.
The student is given words (harvest, gifts, Santa Claus, Pilgrims) they need to match with the correct holiday – Thanksgiving or Christmas. This section ends with a discussion about the student’s favorite holiday.
Grammar: adjectives vs. adverbs
The student learns the difference between adjectives and adverbs, and how to identify them and use them correctly. They also learn about different types of adverbs (place, manner, time, frequency, reason/purpose). They practice adjectives and adverbs by completing sentences, correcting mistakes, and adding commas in the correct places between adjectives.
The lesson ends with a vocabulary review and a wrap-up discussion.
