- Introduce or review classroom objects by asking the children to put the different objects on their desks. Do the same as the children and say This is a pencil. This is a pair of scissors, etc.
- Ask the children to show you the different objects: Show me the pencil sharpener. Show me the glue, etc.
- Write the words of the classroom objects on the board and ask some children to draw pictures of the objects below the words.
- Then read the words and get the children to repeat them.
Making the cut-out
- (Optional) The children can colour the school objects and the pencil case.
- The children cut out the pencil case along the dashed line (Art and Crafts: My pencil case 2 Worksheet).
- The children then fold along the dotted lines, as in the following illustration:
- The children cut out the label My pencil case (Art and Crafts: My pencil case 1 Worksheet) and glue it on the outside of the pencil case cut-out.
- The children write the name of their school and their own names and surnames on the label on Worksheet 1. Then they cut the label out and glue it below theMy pencil case label.
- The children cut out the classroom objects on Worksheet 1 following your instructions: First cut out the crayons. Next cut out the pair of scissors, etc.
- Once they have cut out all the objects, ask the class to show them to you as in the activity in the Preparation stage: Show me the pencil sharpener. Show me the glue, etc.
- Now the children glue a piece of cardboard under each classroom object.
- Finally they match and glue the classroom objects to the appropriate spaces in the pencil case.
- Divide the class into pairs. Child A shows his/ her pencil case to his/her partner saying: This is my pencil case. I’ve got seven crayons. I’ve got a pencil, etc. Then the children swap roles.
- Get the children to write a brief text on a small piece of paper describing their pencil cases. They should use the same language as in the previous exercise. They can then glue this text to the back of their pencil case cut-outs.
