5th worksheet – to cut up for each group of three


Your best day of the week.

How long do you study a day?

Your typical weekend activity.

Choose between relaxing weekend and going to the party on Saturday evening and give the reason for your choice.

Your household duties.

How to avoid morning rush.

Lessons starting early –
an advantage or not?

Are you a heavy sleeper or an early riser?

Sunday morning in your family.

Writing task:
Describe your ideal day. It can be real or imaginary, a weekday or a weekend day. You can be whoever you want, wherever you want and whenever you want. Write 10 – 15 sentences.

How to use this material:


  • before the lesson cut the sentences on the 2nd, the 3rd and the 5th worksheet (the charts)

  • this conversational lesson includes five activities:


1st activity

- put students into pairs and give each pair the 1st worksheet – the beginnings of the sentences

- they read them and try to guess the ends of the sentences

- then give each pair 2nd worksheet cut up in the strips – students match the sentences; when the students have the sentences completed, read loudly the correct versions

- check the meaning of the words in bald
2nd activity

- the students still have the sentences on their desks

- give each pair the 3rd worksheet cut up in the pieces

- let the students connect the sentences with the cards (the words and expressions on the cards have the connection with the certain sentence, they can extend the sentence or can be used instead of some original part of the sentence)

- when the students have done this task, check the correct answers

- now encourage the students to add some more expressions and phrases to each sentence (can be done with all students together)


3rd activity

- the students individually complete the text with the correct word from the box


4th activity

- divide the students into groups of three

- give them a pile of cards with the topic to discuss

- students take turns in speaking – they take one of the cards and speak at least for one minute; they should use as much presented vocabulary as possible


5th activity

- writing task

- can be done in the lesson or set as homework

The main difference between a working day and a weekend-day is that during the week we must follow our duties. We can’t ignore what we are supposed to do. That’s why I am very happy when the week ends and a weekend comes because I can do whatever I want. I really look forward to sleeping late because I love lazy mornings. On Saturday and Sunday my parents and I try to have a rest and enjoy ourselves a little bit. At the weekends we love going for a trip to the mountains or just go for a walk behind the city. In the evening I sometimes go to the cinema or to a pop concert with my friends but I can enjoy staying at home too. The weekend is definitely better than weekdays!
