In order to check students’ learning teacher points at different students or groups of students in the class and elicits pronouns.

After that, teacher presents “to be” verb form (I am, he is, etc.) and models a couple of examples: She is a girl. He is a boy. We are boys and girls. and asks students to repeat the structures twice to memorize them.
Teacher nominates students to ask “Are /Is you/he/she a boy or a girl?” Students answer “I am/ he/she is a boy/girl” Each student answers 2-3 questions to memorize usage of the verb “to be”
At the end students write down two example sentences into their copybooks: I am a boy/girl. We are boys and girls.
Teacher asks students to exchange copybooks and check their peers’ works.
