1 Main Aim: to use Present Simple affirmative to create stories on the topic “My Day Plan”, “My Family Day Plan”.

2 Subsidiary Aims: to revise language on the topic “Daily Life”, to practice using Present Simple affirmative, to train to pronounce the verbs in the 3-d person singular correctly.

3 Personal Aims: to give learners a chance to find the grammar (to define Present Simple), to make learners be more proactive, to develop their dialogical speech, to give students the opportunity to work in pairs.

I Warmer.

Read as quickly as you can:

[ei] [ou]

Day game play go home snow

I play I go

I play this game I go home

I play this game every day I go home as it snows

II Lead in.

A guessing game. The student tries to show the action he does every day (to have breakfast, to play computer games, etc.). The others guess what it is.

Today we are going to discuss your daily actions (things that you do every day), day plans, you’ll listen to your pen friend’s letter and answer it.

III Presentation.

1. Now take the sheets of paper. Read the sentences and get ready to answer the question what they describe? (Usual actions in present).

We usually play volleyball in the park. She often visits her granny. The cat always sleeps behind the door. They sometimes write letters. He goes to the post office every morning. You always come home late. I rarely eat porridge. Mike sings songs every day.

Let’s read the sentences one more time and find when these things happen? (The teacher writes these words on the board: usually, often, always, sometimes, never, rarely).

Underline the verbs in these sentences. What are they? What is the difference between them? (How can we divide these verbs into two groups?) (Some of them contain – s\es at the end, the others don’t).

Let’s read the sentences where the verb ends with –s\es; where the verb doesn’t end with it.

The teacher writes on the board the following:

Everyday actions:

She always

He +Verb s\es (3d person singular) usually

It often

I sometimes

You +Verb (I, plural) rarely

We every morning

They every day

So, if we want to talk about usual actions we use this tense – Present Simple.

2. “S” at the end of the verb has different variants of reading:

S\ES reads as:

(s) if the verb ends with a voiceless sound;

(z) if the verb doesn’t end with a voiceless sound, if it ends with –o;

(iz) if the verb ends with –ch, -sh, -s;


have – has

do – does;

IV Controlled Practice.

3. I’m going to read the verbs, you need to pronounce them in a correct way with –s\es:

make, tide, watch, spell, think, work, play, see, dress, go, have, do.

- Look at the pictures. What do they usually do?

4. I’ve got a surprise for you. Here is a message from your American pen friend Kitty. Let’s see what she writes.

Hello, my dear friend!

I’m so glad to say that I’m going to Russia on holidays.

Please tell me what you and your family usually do in the evening and when is the best time to come and see you.

Hope to see you soon,



So, Kitty wants to know what you and your family do in the evening. Let’s answer to her letter.

V Free Practice (Production).

5. Divide into groups of 2. On the board you can see some activities we do every day:

get up at … o’clock

have breakfast

go to school

Complete this list and say when you usually do these things and listen to your partner. Find out what you have in common and what is different. Get ready to say about it. (Example: We usually get up at 8 o’clock. Anna has breakfast at 9 o’clock but I have it at 8.30).

6. Spelling rules (s\es).

Write a composition – answer to Kitty’s message about what you and your family usually do on Saturday.
