I have sent an email to the help desk three days ago but have recieved no response. So I thought I should try posting and soliciting help from fellow members on the Teaching English to Young Learners Assignment's question number 5. I have written a lesson plan but the tutor that corrected my work wanted me to follow the structure in the example lesson provided. The example lesson plan is as follows:
To review work done in previous lessons.
To check homework
To introduce new double letter sounds (ee, ea, oy, ar)
To practise the TL (Target Language) using a variety of activities
Target Language: New double letter sounds (ee, ea, oy, ar)
Time: 55 minutes
The children in the class are familiar with all the phonics and have had practice putting letters
together to form three letter words. They haven’t been introduced to double letter sounds yet.
It is the first time the students have done double letter sounds. They may have problems
understanding the concept initially.
Contextualise the double letter sounds in words.
1. Practise Structure:
• “What’s your name?”
• “How are you?”
Get your children to ask each other in open pair work.
2. Practise Phonics using flash cards: Picture side up.
Use 16 cards:
A E G O
B F N U
C X R P
D T I Y
Award points to the children. Put the points on the board.
You can use an activity such as a variant of Slam to do this.
Give points to children.
4. Check homework:
Award points to the children for completion and neatness. Have a running score. 5. Practise Phonics using flash cards:
Phonic side up.
Use the same 15 – 20 cards you used previously.
Activity: Finger Slam. Get the winner of each card to choose the next card. “Hands on
Guessing game. “Is it a___________?”
“No, it isn’t.” / “Yes, it is.”
Get students to take turns being teacher.
7. Run and write:
8. Introduce new double letter sounds:
9. Practise double letter sounds with phonics:
10. Writing in books:
New double letter sounds.
Three letter words (pay attention to ee-bee, oy-boy and ar-car).
The problem is I'm not sure what the first part of the example lesson plan (Revision Numbers 1-7) is. Is it a review for the previous lesson and if it is, am I just suppose to keep that the way it is and modify numbers (8-11) where the new language is already introduced?

Wow, at least you got some feedback! I completed the same assignment today and I have to redo 5 and 6 (i guess) but the teacher only gave feedback on 1-4... Usually the feedback is so helpful... But I guess I made the same mistake as you.. I also sort of did my own thing since I wasn't sure about what that revision thing is.
