- Introduce the vocabulary using either real items of clothing or simple pictures on the board. As you hold up each item of clothing or point to each picture, say the word.
- Write the words on the board and get the children to repeat them after you while pointing to each word.
- Point to a word on the board, get the children to say the word and then ask a child to come and point to the corresponding item of clothing or picture. Repeat this activity until the children are able to identify the items of clothing and read the corresponding words with confidence.
Completing the Matching clothes
- Hand out the Matching clothes 1 Worksheet and explain to the children that they are to colour the items of clothing.
- Next they have to cut out the pictures.
- Hand out the Matching clothes 3 Worksheet and explain to the children that they have to cut out the words and then place each picture over the matching word. Check individual progress.
- Once the children have placed the pictures over the appropriate word, they need to fold each picture square along the dotted line to form a flap.
- The children then glue the flap to the top of the word (show them how to do this).
- When the children have completed the activity they can work in pairs asking each other (with the flaps down) What’s this? The partner then tries to guess the word and the children check their answers by lifting up the flap.
- Repeat the process with the second and the Matching clothes 2 and 4 Worksheets, if there is time. If there is limited time these part of the worksheet could be done in the following lesson.
Picture Dictionary: children can be encouraged to make lists of other vocabulary items and draw pictures to match.
