The activities in the lesson are very interesting. I am sure that teaching my students prepositions using short activities will be effective; also the fact that the activities are helping in putting real life situations into context. My students tend to be easily distracted and they find it challenging to focus. I am interested to see the students' response when I employ these activities.

If the objective of this lesson is for students to describe places then the evaluation is not in line with it as it required students to explain their topic, rather than present an oral description or read their description of a place and possibly highlighting their new vocabulary words.However, the drawing and dictionary search activities were in line with the objective and inclusive as they catered to the different types of learners.

What i like about this lesson is that everything seems time-based and risk-free. It caters, too, to all levels of students, even those who are shy and withdrawn. Children were made aware of the reason for the lesson and what they would be doing.

There are several things about the lesson that concerns me, however.

1. Lesson seems unfocused and unrelated to topic. (using preposition)

2. There is no evidence that new vocabulary has been taught or introduced before.

3. Children used dictionary to find the vocabulary instead of contextual analysis, so comprehension is not being developed.

4. Although grouping was used, another method could have been paired with it to make the lesson more effective.

5. All in all, I had a difficult time trying to wade my way through what should be done. I was a tad bit too confusing for me.
