Possessive Adjectives and Clothing Items

I am teaching possessive pronouns and clothing items. After being exposed to the vocabulary and the pronouns MY, YOUR, HIS and HER and after practicing for some time, I proposed the following task:


Students first drew a slip with a piece of clothing each. They drew and colored their piece of clothing and in the end, we all sat on the floor.

Task 1: Each student talked about their drawing: “My dress is red”, “My boots are green”, “My socks are blue”, My shorts are blue”, My hat is pink”, My T-shirt is gray”, My shoes are green and brown”

Task 2: Then, we practiced questions and answers. I asked “What color are Julia´s shoes?” and they answered “HER shoes are green.”

Task 3: Finally, each one pointed at all the drawings and said: “Her shoes are green, his T-shirt is gray, her dress is red, his sneakers are yellow, her pants are red, his boots are green, her hat is pink , his socks are blue and my shorts are blue.”


Bugs Here, There and Everywhere

Students learned the names of the BUGS and the verb THERE TOBE to describe their garden. After we practiced the affirmative, negative and interrogative forms for a few classes, they drew, color and cut out one bug each. I taped them all on the board and told them to pay attention to the number and the colors of the bugs . I invited one student at a time to go to the front (facing their peers and not the board) and guess how many of each bug there were and how many of a certain color. For instance, I asked: How many SPIDERS are there? or “How many RED spiders are there?” or Are there any PURPLE snakes?OPTION 2: Students can also be the ones to ask the questions, so the teacher could arrange them in two teams.Writing Task: After practicing the verb THERE TO BE and the names of the bugs, my students were asked to draw their own yard and write about it. They were supposed to use THERE TO BE and the names of the bugs.
