This lesson in a Can focuses in on the target language of .... has / have got .....
This is a fairly common expression of "to have" and should be encouraged to be used by beginning learners. There usually isn't any confusion if it is introduced and encountered early enough on in the learning process.
I introduce it by describing people.
1. Warm - up. Ask the students about their family. "Has your father got big eyes?" "Has your sister got long hair?" Ask students to describe their family after writing on the board the following blanks.
I / you have got
she has got ---------- ears, nose, eyes, mouth, hair, feet, hands, teeth etc...
you have got
You might also practice this with a listening game. Make a statement - "I have got brown hair!". Students go to the "Yes" or the "no" side of the classroom to answer each statement. (in the middle if its "maybe".
2. After the students have been introduced to the forms, get them practicing them.
Show the following ppt. Play it as a game if you wish, giving points for correct descriptions. Lots of fun here! Or do it as a writing exercise if wished, where the students write correct descriptions of the people. You might also play the Describe 'em Pass the Paper game or the Guess Who game attached if students are familiar already with these forms.
Also, show this photo on a screen or print it out. Ask one student to describe and the others can guess. Alternatively, use our Music Space celebrity photos to play the same game! Daniel has posteda nice game like this on Teaching Recipes.
