Default Celta: first TP help!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've got my first teaching practice on October 13th and I'm really nervous.
The topic I have to tackle is grammar (eek!); present perfect vs past simple and the duration form Despite following the assisted lesson plan sheet and timing myself I still end up finishing way before the 40 minutes are up. What to do? The students are intermediate ones.
here is my lesson plan
1- write We '...... ...... each other for 2 years (elicit response from students who must look for the missing words in the student's book)
2- Explain contracted forms I've and We've with phonetic transcription
MCQs When did they meet?
Do they know each other now?

3- Draw timeline

4- How to form present perfect; subject+auxiliary have/has + past participle

5- Explain use

6- present perfect versus past simple: provide example sentences

7- How to form the interrogative sentence (how long have they known each other? Elicit from students)

8- drill students

10- controlled self- prepared exercise (gap- filling present perdect)

11- The duration form : When to use since and for

12 - gap -filling exercise

13 - Making conversation (students interview each other to find out if they have anything in common - filling in grid individually and then splitting into pairs and interviewing each other).

I am aware that the time will probably fly by but I'm terrified of rushing through the lesson or worse, getting carried away with some aspects tha may arise from the students questioning.
Please help! Many thanks

Sorry, I know it's a bit late, but ...

That is a lot stuff for one lesson. You just need to have the students practice more ...

Also, you could have some of the students report back on their partner once the interview is over. That is if you have extra time.

Additionally you could have them write 2 of each type of sentence (simple past and present perfect.) One sentence is true and one sentence is false.

In pairs have them read their sentences and a partner has to guess which on is true.

That could be an activity you insert after the explanation and before introducing the interogative.

Lastly, you could bring that activity back at the end (once you covered question formation) and instead of just saying something like "I think you have lived here for 10 years.", they could add on the question "Have you lived here for 10 years?"
