Procedure (44 minutes)
T uses realia brought into the classroom from outside (sunglasses, jacket, wallet, bag, keys, mobile phone, a photograph, an ID card, money, an umbrella) and one by one pulls them out of the bag, eliciting Ss identification of the items. T asks CCQs about the vocab items. T-S drilling of vocabulary names.
T writes the names of the items up on the board. T then hands out pictures of personal possessions to Ss. Ss will then get up and stick the pictures underneath the object names written on the board.
T puts certain realia items around the room. (e.g. jacket crumpled up on the seat of a chair. Photograph behind the chair. Sunglasses in a bag. Keys in a bag. ID card in the wallet. Money in the wallet. Bag next to the table. Umbrella under the chair.) They will stay there. T writes on the WB: "Where is my ____________?" and "Where are my __________s?" Then goes on to use the realia around the room to fill in these sentences. T does this several times with Ss filling in the blanks and the T answering. (E.g. Student asks, "where is my mobile phone?" and teacher answers "It's on the table.") Teacher hands out the cat preposition paper slip (HO#1) T then switches the Q&A format and starts asking the Ss: "Where is/are the ______?" As Ss answer using the HO#1 as a guide, T writes on the board in correct format, underlining the important sentence-building components.
T does an example through demonstration of a jumbled sentence before giving Ss HO#2 to work on in PW. WCFB on WB, T calls on S after groups have finished to write the correct sentence on the board.
T moves the realia around the room. Explains through demonstration that the Ss will write 5 sentences about the location of the personal possessions in relation to each other in the room. T hands out HO#3. PW. FB through T calling on individual students to submit one of their answers and come write it on the board.
Students will work in teams of 4 in a competition game. T will explain instructions and then give HO#4, one to each team. The Ss will have 2 minutes to look and memorize the details of the picture. After 2 minutes, T will take the pictures back and give each team chances to make sentences regarding the image (e.g. the wallet is in the bag.) 1 correct sentence equals 1 point. The team with the most points at the end of 3 turns each wins.
