No votes yet

This lesson plan for younger primary-aged learners is specifically designed for teachers and parents helping their children learn English at home.


In this lesson children complete a worksheet by following the instructions to search for objects and words found at home. Children are asked to find and draw objects, tick boxes and write simple English words and sentences in this fun activity which aims to give practice to children learning at home. They share the information with their parents, or their teachers and classmates online. Ideas for extending the lesson are provided below.
