Here are some materials I'm using for this chapter.

First: simple ppt review file with vocab and expressions.

Second: word search and mixed-up words worksheets.

Sorry about that. Trying again.  Should be a ppt file and a mixed up sentence worksheet.

Gangnam ppt filled in with easy questions.


After the first lesson we had about 5 minutes to kill, so we did a goofy picture dictation - the kids had to draw what I described.

We started with, 'there is a box.' 'There is a puppy in the box. The box is on a table. There is a bed under the table,' etc. The last one was 'there is a duck on the puppy.'

I also adapted a hidden picture game template for powerpoint.


I've been trying to get away from the powerpoint based stuff lately and have a couple ideas for this lesson.

1. I split the class into groups of 4 and gave each group a white board.  Then I wrote  prepositons on the blackboard: in on under etc.  Then the students had to make a sentence about objects in the room with the first preposition and then read it to the class.  ex: There are books on the shelf.  The group that made a sentence with the most items got the most points.  I had 6 groups first place was 6 points last place was 1.  The next round used the next prepostion.  I didn't let students use items that couldn't be counted like air.  If they chose something that there was a lot of, like papers on the teacher's desk I just estimated.

2.  Haven't tried this yet but I'm going to do it on Monday.  Cover a die with 6 different prepositions.  Give the students a small object (i'm using a monkeys from this game I have) some paper cups, and cards with different objects on them.
How to play: Roll the die, if you get on, then put the monkey on the cup. Then roll again. In, put the monkey in the cup.  The object of the game is to put the mokey in the corect position as many times as you can in a given time.  I'm using 30 seconds.
The first round they just have to put the moneky where it needs to go.  The second round they need to speak the sentence and put the monkey in the right place. "There is a monkey next to the cup."  The third round the have to draw an object card, put the monkey where it needs to go, but instead of moneky they say a sentence with what evr object card they drew. "There are pencils on the cup."
I'm going to divide the students into groups of 4.  They each take a turn each round.  If you have lower-level students you can partner them.



Made a simple Halloween based PPT for 11.1 to introduce in/on/under.

The first part is flashing picture Halloween vocab. The second part teaches the full pattern 'The ____ is [in/on/under] the ____. The third is a sort of memory game where I'll show the pictures for a few seconds and the students need to remember and recite where they are in the classroom/outside area.

I did a few activities afterwards with a box/chair/desk. I gave some flashcards/objects to a few students and they had to race to put them in/on/under certain things around the room.

Hi guys!

I made a logic puzzle using the vocabulary and prepositions.
Students must read the clues a few times in order to solve the puzzle. After I will have students write the correct answer in their notebook. Ex: The monkey is on the chair.  The file was made in publisher so I will upload it as a JPeg. Also, if you can think of simpler wording or better clues, please let me know.

Hey, I updated the puzzle. It's attached below.

Here is my contributing PPT introduction for Story A mixed in with a few other ppt from the above people.  ;D
"Independence? That's middle class blasphemy. We are all dependent on one another, every soul of us on earth."


i've left my textbook at school. Can anyone tell me what page numbers this lesson encompasses?

The pages are 156 - 169.

I used this for the writing portion.  We used it as an end of class activity.  The instructions are in the ppt, but all I did was put up the picture and let the kids write their own sentences in their notebook.  They really got into it, and tried to come up with some different sentences (especially for the stranger pics).  The kids then volunteered to read them to the class.  Simple, but effective... took about 10 minutes. 


Whiteboard game. Divide the students into groups and they have to fill in the blanks accordingly.

So I am not very good at logic puzzles, even simple ones, so I want to make sure I answered this correctly because one sentence doesn't quite make sense.  Are the answers:

1. The monkey is on the chair.
2. The rabbit is under the bed.
3. The cat is beside the tree.
4. The duck is in the table. <-- that being the sentence that doesn't work for me, in a table?

Thanks!

Hi clstratton! Those are the correct answers. I meant to post saying that the final sentence isn't exactly logical, but forgot. Thank you for pointing it out. At the time I just put the variables (key words) in the grid and then tried to make functional clues. To fix the puzzle, the word table could be changed to desk or in could be changed to another preposition. Fortunately my students didn't ask. If they did I would just say that the duck is in a drawer in the table.

Ok perfect, thank you!! I just wanted to make sure before I told my kids it was in a drawer or something if they asked and not that I had done the puzzle wrong!  Thanks for posting!  It is a great activity for my advanced kids!


Here are some ideas for this lesson. I only made the Intro PPT, Partner Preposition, YE Tongue Twisters, and Interview Info Gap- which isn't complete but the gist is there.

The Board game I found online here: http://busyteacher.org/6085-prepositions-of-place-boardgame.html

I modified the Where's Waldo PPT to make it longer and have the answers on another slide.

I did a gangnam themed game a year after it was famous and it was clear that it was lost its spark... eeeh... so I just redid the Gangnam game on this page to a 'last man standing game'.  Pretty self-explanatory: play in teams. everyone stands up - when you answer the question correctly, you can decide who gets to sit - either a whole line (horizontal, vertical...) or a number of students... The group with the most people standing at the end, wins.  The PPT suggests that students should raise their hands - it got quite 'out of hand' - so we let the groups take turns to answer,...


This site allows you to make a character with animal arms, legs etc. It would be really fun to build a character as an ending activity. Have the kids tell you which animal they want as you go along.

Hi guys!

I made a logic puzzle using the vocabulary and prepositions.

My students had a hard time with this last year, so I made a PPT to demonstrate and make it easier. I also wrote out the steps in case your co-teacher doesn't understand how the puzzle works. Hopefully this will make it easier on you :)
