Size of the class: 40 students
Age: 13 years old (grade 7)
Class length: 45 minutes
This is the second part of the lesson “My House”. It is designed for grade 7 and it focuses on usage of the prepositions of place.
Review the previous lessons. Ask individual students to answer the conversation questions from previous lessons.
Play a game to help them review previous vocabulary (Pictionary). Although I don’t recommend playing a game at the beginning of the lesson, in this situation playing a game for reviewing vocabulary is a good idea.
Introduce the different prepositions by drawing a small sketch to explain. Ask the students to repeat and write down in their notebooks.
Show an example on power point and label the picture to show where the objects are using prepositions.
Provide simple sentences to illustrate how to use prepositions to describe one’s house. Ask the students to write 4 sentences to describe a room in their house.
