Sentence Structure – 12

Welcome!
This is the twelfth SS for Level 1. To understand this SS student is expected to have a working knowledge upto SS-11. You can confirm their knowledge by taking them through the <Level selector tests>

How to use this SS-

After setting up the class follow these steps:

First, cover the vocabulary section by explaining to the student the meaning of the words in their local language. Ask the students to note down these word meanings in their notebook. The words in the vocabulary section (below) will be used in the table which we will create next.

Now, recreate the table (below) on the black board (you can use fewer words in column 3 to speed it up). After this, make some sentences using the match the following style i.e. choose one word from 1st column then choose an appropriate word from second and then choose the appropriate 3rd column phrase/word. Demonstrate this process to the students and lead them to make few more sentences like this. A few sample sentences made using the table words are given below the table for quick reference.

After this stage students when you feel that students have some clarity about the Table then begin the individual exercises. The exercises can be taught in any order but it is recommended to teach them in the given order. After the exercises move on to the story section. This section is made so that students are able to apply all the sentences taught in this SS in their day to day conversations.

Vocab section is not opening.Further future tense is elaborated here. Good collection of various type of sentences,it will help to learn more.

The idea of linking a concept with emotions and real life examples seems quite appealing to me . The modules are interconnected and so will enable the students to understand the whole concepts and not just the gist.

This module is fairly composed with good reading material for the students. But before the initiation of this SS level , students can be asked about their aims and aspirations , which will spark a futuristic approach while studying about this topic . Also they will feel more connected towards this concept and they will be able to concentrate better , as well as will be able to relate themselves to the subject.

Good place to introduce future tense. Emphasis should be laid on the way sentences are structured in the future tense.

All basic points should be covered well by the teacher. And no vocabulary is added in this SS. I think good vocabulary is the way to express emotions and ideas successfully.

A reasonably good introduction to the future tense. I think quite a few base points have been covered. This should be grasped fairly quickly, given that the students have gotten exposure to present and past tenses by now.

There is an error in a sample sentence after the first table. Instead of “My sister will be at work at today at 5 p.m.”, it should be “My sister will be at work today at 5 p.m.”
