WARM UP (books closed)

Get students in groups of five. Stick some magazine cutouts with the members of a family on the board and a bigger heading that reads: A family. Distribute some pieces of paper, to each group with the names of the family members in the book. Encourage them to go up to the board and match each picture with the corresponding name of the family member. Do some drills. Congratulate them for their work with rewarding expressions: Great! Cool!


  1. Use the box of letters to complete the adjectives.

Do some picture exploitation. Have students notice that each person has a number on their shirts that indicates their family member name. Ask students: Who are these people in the picture? Who is number 1? Ask the same question with the other members. Reflect on the function of adjectives.

Call on a volunteer to read the instructions and the code box of letters. Explain it has a number that represents a letter to complete the adjectives. Go around the classroom and provide help if needed. Socialize the answers. After that, encourage students to identify classmates who are tall, short, young, pretty, handsome, athletic and thin. Emphasize that we use pretty for girls and handsome for boys.


  1. Listen and complete with the adjectives in exercise 1.

Get students to work in pairs. Refer them to the Listening Strategy and challenge them to complete the dialog by using the information given in the picture in exercise 1.

Play the audio as many times as necessary to confirm their answers or write the correct information. Ask them to compare answers with their partner before socializing them as a whole class. Do not forget to praise them for their effort!

Refer students to the Key Expressions boxes and give examples relevant to their context. Have them quickly find those expressions in the dialog (line 1, and line 14).

  1. Go back to the conversation and check Yes or No. Then, complete the grammar chart.

Call on volunteers to read the statements aloud while the rest of the class pays attention and answers aloud yes or no, based on what they recall from the dialog.

Focus students’ attention on the Reflect on Grammar chart. Remind them of the singular subject pronouns. Have them observe and read the plural subject pronouns and their conjugations aloud. Challenge students to find them in the dialog. Write examples relevant to students’ real context on the board. Ask them to read the short forms to check pronunciation.
