Teacher writes the adjectives describing Buenos Aires and London on the whiteboard, and elicits the opposite meanings. polluted quiet exciting expensive dangerous beautiful Then teacher gives the handouts to students to fill in the gaps with the appropriate adjective.
Teacher writes 2 places in Turkey on the whiteboard which she likes and dislikes. She tells the class why by using the new learned vocabulary. Istanbul/Adapazarı and Kars/Bodrum Then she asks students to write down 5 places they like and dislike. They will mingle in the classroom and see if they agree with others. We will then choose the commonly liked and disliked places.
Teacher draws the schemas related to prepositions on the whiteboard and elicits them by showing the places related. Then gives the handouts for the students to fill in the blanks in the sentences with appropriate prepositions.
Teacher tells the first part of the sentence and leaving a blank writes the rest of the sentence on the whiteboard. The students are expected to guess which preposition is proper for the sentence. The class is .............. the school (in) Do not walk ................ the grass (on) Ankara is ............ Turkey.(in) Riding a bicycle ...... the street (on) The book is....... the table (on) The moon is ........the sky (in) Write your name ...... the paper (on) I am ............ the classroom (in) Then with the handovers they already have, they do the exercise 2.
Teacher tells students where she lives and where she works. She mentions the things she likes and dislikes about it all, and tells the class where she would like to live and why? Then she asks the students to write down where they live and where they work or study, if they like it or not. Would they like to live somewhere else and why? The students mingle in the class and ask their friends the same questions.
Teacher asks what they have learned about their friends.
