I. OBJECTIVES
At the end of the lesson, the students are expected to:
1. construct their own sentences in three different verb structures with a
future meaning
2. differentiate the verb structures in terms of meaning
3. discuss their future plans with their classmates

II. SUBJECT MATTER

Have them plan an imaginary trip and ask the following
questions:
1. How long will they stay?
2. What will they bring?

C. Activities: 1. Divide the class into five. Let them choose an interviewer for
each group asking all the members what to do with their money recently won
during a contest.

the table to the class to enable them to differentiate the three verb structures in
terms of meaning.
