Bed and Breakfast
Elementary level


In this lesson students learn about the things at home. The lesson starts with checking the background knowledge of the students' on parts of the house. The teacher uses authentic material (showing some photos of her home) to engage students. Then the teacher presents the target vocabulary (+adding some more words) by using MPF. This is followed by a controlled activity which is matching the pictures to the words. After that, there is a game called Stop The Bus , where students use the target vocabulary . After this game there is a more challenging game called "word challenge". In this game sts will use the definitions and try to guess what they are. As freer practice four groups will draw houses and talk about them. If there is time, there will be an activity about written forms of the target vocabulary.
