Conclusion <ul><li>To sum up, I can say that we can create a good lesson planning with common objects and simple activities. The success of an activity depends on the energy of the teacher and motivation that he will give to his students. For that reason it is important to take into account factor like our lesson planning (objective, bridging, etc.) and classroom management (timing, seating arrangement, etc.) Those factors will determine whether a lesson is successful or not. Most of the time a lesson succeeds because of the teacher’s attitude. </li></ul><ul><li>Technology as the internet is a useful tool since it saves time and money; however, teachers need to know how to use them. Certainly, Instructional materials are good in the way teachers apply them in the classroom. </li></ul>
