Teaching difficult points:

Step 1 Lead in
Greet with the students. Then begin the class with a new song adapted from How is the weather? The new song as follows:
What’s your favourite season?
It is spring/summer/autumn/winter.
1 Free talk
Ask about the students’favourite season and the reasons. I will do like this:
T: Now, I want to ask you. What is your favorite season? And why? You, please.
S1: Spring. Because it is warm and we can have a picnic outside.
S2: Autumn. Because the weather is cool.
2 Listen to the tape. Before it, I will give two questions.
Question1: How many seasons are there in the conversation?
Question2: About Amy and Miss White, what are their favorite seasons?
S1: Four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter.
Write the four seasons on the blackboard.
S2: Amy likes autumn best and Miss White likes summer best.
3 Now, listen the tape carefully. This time, focus on the question:
T: Why do they like autumn and summer?
Then fill the detail in the blanks on PPT:
Amy likes autumn best, because the weather is good and colors are beautiful.
Miss White likes summer best, because she can swim in the pool.
T: Ok, now, it is the second time for listening, pay attention to the details in the talk. After listening, you need to fill in the blank on PPT.
T: Now, let’s fill in the blank together.
T: Miss likes…
T: The reason is?
S: She can swim in the pool.
Make dialogues in group work.
Write the structure I like…best, because…on the blackboard.
Divide students into four groups: spring group, summer group, autumn group and winter group. The teacher makes a sentence and other three groups need to use different words to make new sentences.
First begin with the spring group.
Spring: I like spring best, because Ican fly a kite.
Summer: summer swim in the pool.
Autumn: autumn the weather is good.
Winter: winter make snowball men.
Read the chant again and again to review the structure.
Step 4 Summary and homework
Ask one of the students to be an assistant teacher to memorize what we have learned today. The homework is to choose their favorite seasons, make a card for it and describe the reason with the sentence we have learned next time.
