Subject: ESL/ELL (English Language Learning)
Lesson Length: 30 - 45 mins
Topic: Answering Yes and No Questions
Brief Description: Students will practice asking and answering "yes" or "no” questions with the verb “do”.
Know Before You Start: Students should be familiar with present form do, does and the past tense form did.
Discuss the sample comic above and model yes/no questions with the class.
Review the following question starters: am, is, are, was, were, have, had, do, does, did, can, will, should.
Have students practice forming questions and answering using both positive and negative statements. Ex: “Do you like ice cream?” “Yes, I do.” or “No, I do not.”
Using the sample comic as a guide, have students create a comic depicting a conversation between at least two people.
The comic should include a yes/no question beginning with “Do” or “Does.”
Closure: Have students share their comics with the class. Ensure students are using the correct subject-verb agreement while answering yes/no questions.
- Allow students to work with a peer model.
- Provide sentence frames for students “Do you like _____?” “Yes/No I do/do not like _____.” “Do you want _____?” “Yes/no I do/do not want ____.”
