Have all of your Ss make a clock (our crafts page has a great one).
T (or in pairs Ss) ask questions. E.g. What time do you usually eat breakfast? What time do you usually go to bed? Etc. Ss move the clock arms to the correct times.
Meal Routines Throw
This activities practices adverbs such as never, rarely, sometimes, usually, often, always. First, get Ss to write down as many food words on the blackboard as they can in 3 minutes (if you have a large class, have the Ss shout out and the T writes the words down). Then make 2 teams. In Team A, S1 throws a screwed up paper ball at the board. Whatever food word it hits the S must make a sentence using the structure "I ___ eat ___ for (breakfast, lunch or dinner), e.g. "I sometimes eat chicken for dinner". If the S successfully hits a word and makes a good sentence he/she wins a point for his team. If the S misses a word or gets the sentence wrong his/her team misses out on a point.
Morning Routines Lesson Plan
Morning Routines Song
On 12 small squares of paper write down key hourly times (e.g. 6am, 7am, 12pm, 4pm, 6pm, etc.). Also include a few "wild cards" with a question mark written on them. Fold the squares of paper and put into a small box. Ss sit around the box and take turns on taking out a piece of paper. They have to make a sentence based on their daily routine at that time using the structure "I usually ___ at ___o'clock" (E.g. I usually wake up at 6 o'clock in the morning, I usually eat breakfast at 7 o'clock in the morning, I usually do homework at 6 o'clock in the evening, etc.). If a S picks a wild card they can make a sentence about any time of the day. If the student makes a perfect sentence they keep the piece of paper, if not it goes back into the box. The person with the most pieces of paper at the end is the winner.
