Grade 2 level


In this lesson, students learn about the prepositions "in, on, under, next to" through guided discovery based on a PowerPoint presentation about toys. The lesson starts with role playing where an absent-minded teacher forgets where he'd put his materials. This is followed by showing a series of slides that will enable students to see the location of things. Finally, there is some controlled practice through sentence formulation.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of prepositions "in, on, under, next to" in the context of toys

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide review of "plane, truck, bulldozer, car, figure" in the context of toys.


Warmer/Lead-in (2-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

After introducing himself, T begins acting like he forgot where he'd put his book, pen and laptop. T asks for help from Ss and try eliciting oral answers, directions. Whenever he finds one of his materials, he emphasizes the words "under, in, on, next to."

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

T shows the ppt slides to Ss for visual exposure to the structure. T reads the example aloud and asks Ss to repeat. T also includes a short imitation game here by asking Ss to read one of the sentences with a sad face, with a laughter, a cry and a sleepy face.

Highlighting (3-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

T takes out his toys and puts them on his table. After placing them, T asks Ss "Where is the Spider-Man?" After eliciting the correct answer and repeating it aloud, he asks another one: "Where is the car, Lightning McQueen?"

Controlled Practice (6-7 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

T divides the class into 5 groups and gives one toy to each group. T asks Ss to place it somewhere close by and talk about it's location. The activity continues by taking turns, giving every student a chance to touch the toy and utter a sentence.
