Lesson Plan: Prepositions in, on, and at for Location and Time

Level: Beginner ESL learners

Introduction: - Greet the students and introduce yourself. - Begin by asking the students if they know what prepositions are and if they can give any examples. - Explain that prepositions are words that show the relationship between a noun or pronoun and other words in a sentence. - Introduce the prepositions “in,” “on,” and “at” and explain that they are used to talk about location and time. - Show a picture of a person standing in a room and ask the students to describe where the person is using the prepositions “in,” “on,” and “at.”

Lesson Outline: 1. Prepositions for Location: a. Explain that “in” is used to talk about being inside a place or enclosed space. b. Show a video explaining the preposition “in” for location (e.g., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JZ_D3ELwOQ). c. Provide examples and ask students to complete sentences using “in” (e.g., The cat is ___ the box). d. Give students a worksheet to practice using “in” for location (e.g., https://www.teach-this.com/esl-essentials).

  1. Prepositions for Time: a. Explain that “on” is used to talk about specific days and dates. b. Show a video explaining the preposition “on” for time (e.g., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JZ_D3ELwOQ). c. Provide examples and ask students to complete sentences using “on” (e.g., My birthday is ___ Monday). d. Give students a worksheet to practice using “on” for time (e.g., https://www.teach-this.com/esl-essentials).

  2. Prepositions for Time (continued): a. Explain that “at” is used to talk about specific times. b. Show a video explaining the preposition “at” for time (e.g., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JZ_D3ELwOQ). c. Provide examples and ask students to complete sentences using “at” (e.g., I have a meeting ___ 3 o’clock). d. Give students a worksheet to practice using “at” for time (e.g., https://www.teach-this.com/esl-essentials).

Questioning: - Throughout the lesson, ask students questions to check their understanding and encourage participation. - For example: - “Where is the cat? Is it in the box or on the box?” - “What day is your birthday? Is it on Monday or at Monday?” - “What time do you usually have dinner? Is it in 6 o’clock or at 6 o’clock?”

Assessment: - To assess students’ understanding, provide a short quiz or activity where they have to choose the correct preposition for given sentences. - Monitor students’ participation and comprehension during class activities and discussions.

Differentiation: - Provide additional support for struggling students by giving them extra examples and more guided practice. - For advanced students, challenge them by asking them to create their own sentences using the prepositions in, on, and at.

Plenary: - Review the lesson by asking students to share one sentence using each of the prepositions “in,” “on,” and “at.” - Summarize the main points of the lesson and clarify any remaining doubts or questions.
