Places Outside The Home

Over the previous lessons, you learnt to talk about things in your classroom and home. Today we will learn about places outside the home. During the weekend I am pretty sure you will go some other places other than school. I hope you did not just stay at home and play games all day long.

Now if people ask where did you go during your holidays or weekends, can you tell them clearly? Let us read the passage below.

Last Sunday, Ramli went to stationery shop to buy some pens and papers. After that, he went to the bookshop to buy some new books. Before he went to a restaurant to take my dinner, he turned into the bakery shop to buy a loaf of bread. Ramli also bought some snacks and biscuits in the grocery shop before he head back home.

So he went to quite a number of places. Do you know what are them? Stationary shop is where you buy your stationery such as pencils, rulers, pencil box and papers. Bookshop is where you buy reference books, story books, dictionaries and other books. Restaurant is where you pay to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner. Bakery shop is where you buy baked goods such as bread and cake. Grocery shop is where you can buy different kinds of foods.

There are a lot more places that you should already know. Below is a list of places and I hope you can take your time to look up for them in the dictionary or internet one by one.

Class Activity: Last letter

This is a great activity for students at any level. I did this in my class and the outcome was good. No extra materials are needed except whiteboard pen or chalk. The objective of this game is to revise vocabulary that the students learnt previously.

Before the game starts, teacher should divide the class into groups of 5 students or more. Then, he or she can let the groups to decide their group name. After that, the teacher write down a total of 5 different words on the board if there is a total of 5 groups, and 6 words for 6 group, and 7 words for 7 group, and so on.

The progress of the game is same for all groups. Therefore I am using only one group as an example. Now, I write WELCOME for group A. Then, the first student must write a word that starts with the last letter of previous word, which is E. So, he writes ELEPHANT. The next student then come and starts with the letter T. The game continues until one of the students fail to come up with a word in 5 seconds or repeats a same word.

Keep the game going until there is only 1 people left per group. Then these winners from their groups come together and start the final round. The flow of the game is same, just that these students are the best in their respective groups. The game ends when there is only one student left. He or she is the winner of the game.

Now that you understand how it works, go try it in your classroom!
