Lesson Plan Text

Countable and Uncountable Nouns- Answer Me

Warmer – Countable and uncountable nouns- Make me say Yes
Ask personal yes/ no questions with countable or uncountable nouns and numbers or 
amounts like those in the table below to try to get positive answers from your partner. You 
get one point if your partner says 
“Yes, (there is/ there are/ I do)”, but no points if they say 
“No, (there isn’t/ there aren’t/ I don’t)”, “Actually, I…”, “I don’t know”, etc

Optional extension: Play the same game, but this time with one point for “I don’t know” 
answers.

Countable and uncountable nouns- Answer me card game
Deal out the pack of cards. Ask each other questions like the Yes/ No questions above or 
“How much/ many…?” questions to try to get answers from your partner that are written on
your cards. If your question is grammatically incorrect, they can reject your question and 
play passes to the next person. If your partner answers with one of the things on your one 
of your cards, then you can place that card down on the table and score a point. The 
winner is the first person to get rid of all their cards, or the person with fewest cards left 
when the teacher stops the game.
