Simple and involving game to practise toys (or school supplies, or pets) and rooms of the house vocabulary.
- rooms in the house; toys (like in the example) / school supplies / pets
- question: Is the ... in the ...?
- answers: Yes, it is. / No, it isn't.
Materials: sheets of paper, pencils, scissors
Time: 45 minutes
- Ask children to give you examples of some toys and rooms in the house. Write students' ideas on the board.
- Then take out the board prepared earlier and hide one of the toys (piece of paper with its name) under a flap. Ask your students to guess where the toy is asking the questions: Is the ... in the ...? (for example: Is the teddy in the kitchen?). Let them ask three questions. If they find the right room, get the point. If not the teacher has got one. Carry on with some other toys.
- When they catch on the rules of the game, ask them to prepare in pairs their own boards like this:
- Students play the game in pairs.
