First, the teacher will show the students the model of the house. She will explain to them that this is an empty house with some labels. She will show the students the bag of objects that go in the rooms. She will model taking out one object and placing it in the appropriate room. She will call on a student to restate what the directions are.
4. 5. 6. 7.

The students will be handed two envelopes. One envelope would have pictures of furniture in it. The other will have labels for the pictures. The students will then work as a group to fill the house. The goal is for them to work as a group to label and create a real house. Once all rooms have been filled and labeled the students will present their house to the class/teacher.

Follow-Up Activity

The teacher will hand out a worksheet which will ask students what they do in each room. The class will go over the new vocabulary (verbs) and answer together. This activity will serve as an introduction for an independent project, where the students will create a collage of their own house, with labels.
