Lesson/Unit Summary: In this unit, students will learn the vocabulary on body shapes and sauce types, as well as how to tell the time and describe daily routines by using the structures “(It’s) time + to-infinitive” / “It’s time for … (noun)”. To enhance students’ learning motivation, teachers are recommended to use the online quiz website ‘Quizizz’ for vocabulary teaching. To cultivate students’ reading interests and logical thinking, they are encouraged to predict the story ending based on the pictorial cues. They are also given opportunities to re-write the ending to show creativity. When teaching students how to tell the time, teachers will refer to students’ daily routines in school. In this way, students can relate English learning to their real-life experiences.
