Lesson Plan: Simple Past Tense and Regular-Irregular Verbs

Was observed on Monday by an inspectorate :) They are all in my school till Thursday. Here's the lesson plan in case you'd like to try it! My SS were angels 😉😍 Not bragging o.k. but I was very pleased with how the lesson went. One of the best lessons I've conducted...most importantly, objectives achieved 😄 The inspectorate's feedback was positive Alhamdulillah. Feel free to use and share. 

It's a habit of mine to have a lesson outline such as the following before I'm observed. For the lesson plan proper, please check below.













FORM 2 IBNU QAYYIM
 THE SIMPLE PAST TENSE 
AND REGULAR IRREGULAR VERBS
(60 mins)


ACTIVITIES
STEPS
MATERIALS
1.   WARMER/
STARTER
        (10 mins)

1.        T distributes number 1- 4 cards to each group and ask each group member to pick one number.
2.        T shows some simple past tense verbs on ppt. and ask SS to study the spelling of the verbs.
3.        T asks SS to identify which are regular verbs and which are irregular:
4.        T gives input on the simple past and regular/irregular verbs using ppt.
Ppt. slides
Numbers 1-4 enough for all SS in groups of four

2.   STORY TIME
      (35 mins)

1.        T distributes a true story (Escape from the jungle).
2.        SS read the story silently and change simple present tense verbs into the verbs in the boxes into the simple past tense.
3.        T models by reading aloud and asks questions to check SS understanding for each paragraph:

a.  When did the incident take place? 1971
b.  What’s the name of the girl in the story? Juliana
c.  How old is the German girl? 17
d.  Who was Juliana traveling with? Her mother
e.  What was she travelling on? A plane
f.   What animal did she see on her journey to escape? 
    caimans and piranhas

4.        T checks answers by calling “HEADS TOGETHER NO. 1” to give answers to the blanks in the story.
5.        All SS with no.1 stand up and answer questions. T continues to call other numbers.
6.        Once all the blanks are filled up, T gets SS to verbally say which verbs are regular and irregular verbs. Alternatively, T can draw columns on board and call SS to classify the verbs in the story:

REGULAR
IRREGULAR
Para 1:
looked   called

left, were, broke, fell, hit, lay, food
Para 2:
started

heard, found, saw, knew
Para 3:
learned
came, knew, swam, learnt, got took



















Numbered heads
“Heads together”


















3.   GRAMMAR GAME AND CLOSURE
   (15 mins)
1.        Grammar Tic Tac Toe
How to play:
a.      Use the 4 games on the slides.
b.      Divide class into 2 teams (green and red teams depending on colour of marker pens used)
c.       Give green marker pen to green team and red pen to the read team.
d.      Show slide Game 1. Call GREEN TEAM to choose a verb in the simple past and change that to the infinitive. (correct spelling mandatory)
e.       Next, call the RED TEAM to choose a verb and do the same. (the idea is to block the other team and to try to score a tic-tac-toe)
f.        The winner is of course the group that can have a straight line! (No worries, when I carried this out, only in the 4th game did green team won!)
g.      Allow group discussion before one volunteer come to the board to choose a verb.

2.        Follow-up: SS to find 10 regular and irregular verbs for the next lesson.
