Reading, Comprehension, Vocabulary, and Writing


Bring the “Meenakshi and Rohit’s Favorites” handouts.


The situation for this Lesson Plan is Meenakshi and Rohit’s Favorites.

The Lesson Plan is divided into 4 sections:
  • The first section Read Out Loud helps the students read a passage.
  • The second section Comprehension section based on the passage.
  • The third section Let’s Learn New Things is on vocabulary.
  • The fourth section Writing helps the students write some sentences on their own.

Section 1: Read Out Loud 

Time: 25 minutes
Objective: The students are given a passage to read.

Activity 1:

Distribute the following handout (Meenakshi and Rohit’s Favorites):


Meenakshi loves to watch romantic movies. Her favorite movie is the famous Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge. Rohit likes action movies. His favorite movies are Dhoom and Don.

Both Rohit and Meenakshi like comedy. Both of them say that Hungama and Dostana are their favorite movies too.

As for movie stars, Meenakshi’s favorites are Aamir Khan and Priyanka Chopra. Rohit says that Akshay Kumar is a bigger action hero than Aamir. He also thinks Katrina Kaif is more beautiful than Priyanka. So, we can see who his favorite actors are.

Meenakshi’s believes that Akshay may be a bigger action hero, but Aamir is a better actor. And Katrina may be beautiful, but she can’t act as well as Priyanka. {alertInfo}

Note to the teacher:

Read out the passage for the students, explaining the meaning of each sentence. Then, ask the entire class to read out the passage.

Then, divide the class into groups of three. Make each group read the passage. Try and ascertain which student in each group makes errors in pronunciation or is hesitant. Pick out those students and form a separate group. Let this last group read out the passage again, and correct whatever error is recognizable in their reading.

Lastly, make each student read out two consecutive passages alternately.
