Step 1 Revision
1 Revise the words, expressions and the postcard from Lesson 95.
2 Check homework.
Step 2 Word families
SB Page 39, Part 1, Speech Cassette Lesson 96 Phonic Reading Work). Follow the same steps as in TB Lesson 68, Step 2. Use flashcards rather than going straight to the book.
Do Ex. 1 of Wb Lesson 96.
Step 3 Stress and intonation
SB Page 39, Part 2, Speech Cassette Lesson 96.
Students listen and repeat. Get them to show the stress and intonation with gestures.
Step 4 Guess and game
1 SB Page 39, Part 3. Have the students look at the postcards on Page ii in the SB. Ask, Where is this postcard from? Help the students to answer I think its from Sydney / Paris / Toronto. Now get the students to talk about the postcards.
2 In pairs, have the students make their own postcards. Each pair should choose a place in China to draw their postcard from. Each pair should make two postcards of the same place. They do not need to look alike, but they do need to be from the same place. For example, one pair may choose to make postcards of Guilin. One student could make a postcard showing the mountains, and the other student could make a postcard showing the water of Guilin. Collect the postcards, mix them up. Then pass them out, face down. Explain in Chinese that the object of this activity is for each student to find the other postcard that is from the same place as theirs. They do this by asking, Where is your postcard from?/ Do you have a postcard of … ? Now say Go ! The first two people who have found their matching postcard wins the game. Continue with the game until everyone has found their match. Once the matches have been found, have those two students work together and write a message for their postcards. They may use the postcard letter in Part 3 of the SB as an example.
Step 5 Listen and answer
SB Page 39, Part 4, Listening Cassette Lesson 96. Let the students look at the table in Wb Lesson 96, Ex. 3 before playing the tape.

Step 6 Presentation
1 Say E-mail is a way to talk to other people from around the world. Ask Does anyone have e-mail? Do you e-mail people from other countries? Notice that e-mail is used both as a noun and as a verb.) Put the following e-mail address on the Bb:
2 Have the students make up their own e-mail addresses. Then let them share their address with their partner. Encourage them to be creative.
Step 7 Read
1 Before the students read the passage, say Skim the text for the main idea. Give the students 3 minutes to skim. Then ask volunteer students to give the main idea. Answers should include the following: The e-mail is from Jack Wilson. He wants to learn Chinese. Could Li Lei help him learn Chinese?
2 Have the students read the passage. Ask comprehension questions such as, How old is Jack? Where does Jack live? How many students are in his class? etc.
3 Have the students read the text aloud together. Pay attention to pronunciation and intonation.
Step 8 Read and complete
SB Page 40, Part 6* , Speech Cassette Lesson 96. This part is optional. Before playing the tape have the students fill in the blanks with the words they think. Then play the tape and have them listen and change the words in the blanks if they guessed something else. Suggested answers are: name young /nice / small, etc. and in them are is am speak difficult but know me learning you. Now in small groups, have the students discuss their first answers with the answers on the tape. Maybe some of their answers could also be correctly used in the blanks. Have the groups make a list of the words they think could be put in the blanks. Now come together as a class and discuss the optional words. Some words may be correct. If they are, praise the students for their creative thinking. If an answer is wrong, explain why it isnt correct. This is a good chance to review the grammar taught so far.
Step 9 Write
SB Page 40, Part 7*. This part is optional. Have the students write this letter as homework. The next day collect them, mix them up and give them out to the students. Give the students a chance to read each others letters. The best ones can be put on display. #p#分页标题#e#
Step 10 Checkpoint 24
Go through Checkpoint 24 on SB Page 40 and discuss any problems. Explain that the Present Indefinite Tense is used to give general information, e.g. I come from China. I go to No. 3 Middle School, etc. Contrast I come from Shanghai with I am coming from Shanghai i.e. at this moment I am on the train).
Step 11 Workbook
SB Pages 116-118, Wb Lesson 96. Revise the map on Colour Page i of the SB and do Ex. 2. Do Exx. 4-6 orally in class.
Step 12 Test
Get the students to answer the questions in written form: 1 Where are you from? 2 Do you speak French/ English / Chinese / Japanese? 3 What do you speak? 4 Why do you like English? 5 Who do you speak English with?
Finish off the Workbook exercises.
Some ideas for extra practice or enrichment
1 If you have the chance, set up an e-mail account. Many of your students are getting their own e-mail accounts. E-mail is a great way to practise English. You can have them write to you once a month about anything they want to. In this way, you not only build a good rapport with your students, but they also practise their English.
2 Have the students make their own bookmarks with English phrases. You may teach them some slang or popular phrases, e .g. Cool!, Whats up? etc.
