Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of prepositions of place in the context of possessions.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide speaking practice.


Warmer/lead-In (4-6 minutes) • To set lesson context

Before the class starts, distribute some of my things around the class. Greet the sts and tell them that I have a problem and that I need their help. The problem is I can't find my stuff (bag,umbrella,key,mobile,book and sunglasses) to elicit the prepositions. Write each sentence in the WB and use a different marker for the prepositions. For example: My bag is UNDER the table.

The TL (7-10 minutes) • To clarify the TL i.e. prepositions of place

Put pictures on the left side of the WB and explain the prepositions of place to the sts and write sentences on the WB. Do some drilling. Point out that we use these prepositions to describe where things are.

Practice the main aim (7-10 minutes) • To provide practice of the TL and to review vocabulary of possessions

Explain the exercise by writing the following examples on the WB and have students answer them together as a whole class: mobilephone/ desk /my/ is /on /the under /keys /the /my /are/ book Draw sts' attention to the exercise and have them do it in pairs. Then each pair checks with the pair next to it and finally there will be a whole class feedback.

Further practice (5-9 minutes) • to provide further practice of the TL

Explain with an example and ask sts to work individually and make sentence. Sts check in pairs and then the feedback will be done by asking one student at a time to come to the WB and write the answer. Having students stand and walk to the WB can break the pace of the lesson and allow some movement.

Game activity (8-10 minutes) • To wrap up the lesson with a fun activity that involves speaking

Explain the game with a help from her peers. The students will be divided into groups of three or four for the purpose of participating in a game activity(dice game). The teacher will write up the number 1 to 6 on the board and write one of the prepositions items next to each. Students take it in turns to throw the dice. the number shows them the preposition they must use in a sentence.
