[ Vocabulary ]

doctor – dentist – policeman – firefighter – nurse – secretary – coach – teacher – barber – waiter – pilot.

fix – teach – type – help – bring – catch – make – serve – fly – work – fight.


[ Aim ]

– Recognize what people do in their jobs.


[ Objective ]

– Students put the domino stones together on the board matching pictures with their respective descriptions.


[ Instructions ]

01. Prepare some large domino samples that have similar pictures and descriptions for the activity demonstration.

02. Encourage students to tell what each stone has (a picture and a sentence.)

03. Ask students what those resemble. Try eliciting the word dominoes.

04. Elicit from students how domino is played. Then invite students to place the demostrative stones, you prepared, on board. ( The point is not winning but putting them in the right order.)

05. Hand in the sheet with the stones in it. [ It would be better if you pre-cut them in twos.] and ask them to cut around the stones.

06. Hand in the board sheet, and tell students to put the stones in the correct order without using any glue first. Once you approve their answers they can glue the stones then.

      Many thanks dear Leila… I told myself, why can’t domino be individualized so student would have some fun and be tested on their reading skills and understanding of the topic. They won’t be rushed by their more capable peers.

      Thanks for the support dear,
