Objectives of the lesson: To revise vocabulary to describe what your town is like and describe what rooms there are in your house.
This resource was originally designed for a mixed ability year 7 class but can also be used for year 8 classes.
Activity 1: Dictation. The teacher reads the complete version of the text and students fill in the gaps. This allows students to practice their listening skills and encourages them to also think about spelling of important words. There are two texts with different gaps - one for more able students with more gaps and another with less gaps. The complete version of the text with answers is also available. The students can also orally translate a part of the text.
Activity 2: There is a reading comprehension based on a new text with a mix of questions for different abilities. There is a set of true and false questions and then there is a set of questions where students must elaborate on their answers. All answers can also be found on the slides.
Activity 3: Revision of the verb IR - students will have recognised different forms in the text.
Activity 4: Matching up vocabulary to describe what there is in your house.
Activity 5: A picture dictation: the teacher describes a house and the various rooms including extra details. Students draw on their mini whiteboards an outline of the house. There is a template available for students to follow and then add the rooms. The students can also lable the house they draw with any extra details they hear like adjectives. A complete representation of the house can be found on the slides.
