Number one for English language teachers

Children: My dog

Type: Extra

Students draw pictures of dogs and use them to practise making comparisons.

This activity turned out to be fun for the students because it involved them in making the material.

I used it for revising comparison of adjectives with the primary pre-intermediate groups.

Materials: You will need a drawing of a dog and a piece of paper for each student in the class.

  • Put the drawing of the dog on the board. You might also say something like this: "This is my dog Fluffy. He is big but also very nice. Do you like him?"
  • Ask your students whether they have dogs and what they look like. If they do not have dogs, ask them to imagine the one they would like to have.
  • Give each student a piece of paper and ask them to draw their dogs (either real or imaginary).
  • They should not spend too much time doing this (2-4 minutes). They can colour the dog if they want to. Remind them to sign their drawings in block letters.
  • Put the drawings on one side of the board.
  • Choose the adjectives you would like to practise (e.g. long, fat, big, ugly, beautiful, small, interesting etc.)
  • You can write an example sentence on the board as well e.g. Ana's dog is longer than Luna's.
  • Ask the students to write sentences comparing the dogs (they can do it in pairs).
