Learners will learn or review vocabulary for a variety of classroom objects, as well as prepositions of place, in order to be able to describe where things are in the classroom. They will draw, play games and sing a song to practise the language and structures. There are also several additional suggestions for follow-up activities that can be set as homework or done in following lessons as review.

Alternatives are provided for teachers to deliver this lesson without printing materials. 

Learning outcomes:

  • Use vocabulary related to classroom objects
