Ask Ss to have a small toy (teddy bear, Hot Wheels Car, Barbie doll, etc) next to them. Have Ss stand up to play a quick game of SIMON SAYS. Ask: Who likes to play toys putting them in different places? Give some Ss a chance to show the class where they can put their toy. -Lets play a game of Simon Says with our toys: Give instructions using the toys to follow what SIMON SAYS with following prepositions of place: in, on under, in front of, in back of, next to, between, above, below, near. When the T does not say SIMON SAYS Ss should not do the instruction given and if they do, they have lost and should sit down. This will go on either until there is only one student standing or time runs out. For example: SIMON SAYS- 1. SIMON SAYS-Put your toy on top of your head 2. SIMON SAYS-Put your toy next to your face 3. Put your toy in back of you-in this case T did not say "SIMON SAYS" therefore the students that completed the action should sit down and stop participating because they have lost. The rest of the students continue playing and the student(s) that sit down will help the T monitor who looses again until there is just one winner. If time permits, and the game ends quickly with a winner, that student will now be "SIMON" and will be able to give the instructions. -T should observe students actions to

Test #1 (10-15 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

Activity 1-T will give instructions about the next activity: I want you to remember the prepositions of place with a quick game, I will send you a link in the Zoom chat that you should select when you get it, this will take you to the worksheet. Remember you must write your first and last name, no nicknames are allowed, so that I know who came to class today. Remember this is an activity for you to remember prepositions, do your best, if you don't remember some, don't worry, we will continue to review them. Send the link to the students thru the Zoom chat. T will be able to asses previos knowledge as soon as Ss are finished by accessing to the report in the teacher's account. The report is given automatically as students complete the worksheet.

The rooms to be visited can be: kitchen, bedroom, living room, dining room, bathroom, tv room.

Teacher will asses prior knowledge of rooms in a house.
