Lesson Plan Text


Going to Xmas (Going to for plans and predictions with present evidence) 


Mime getting ready to do one of the actions below. Make sure you mime the run up to the action only.

future when your partner says the sentence. For example, for “You are going to crack a nut” you can 

mime picking up the nut and cracker and then squeezing, but not actually breaking it.

Choose one of the things above and give your partner clues about which one you are thinking about by 

telling the real plans of you and people you know, e.g. “My father is going to do this, but it might be the 

last time because the children are getting too old” (You are going to put present’s in your children’s
