Design a cloze task where the students fill in gaps in the text using a classroom-related picture as a stimulus, such as the one on resource sheet 2.4. For example, the text might say (with the words between the parentheses replaced by gaps):

Ko te akomanga (tēnei). (He) rorohiko kei (runga) i te (tēpu). Kei te (tākaro) tētahi tama kei (waho). (Kotahi) te kaiako. Kei runga i (te) tēpu, he pene hinu, (he) rapa, (he) kutikuti, he (pene), (he) pukapuka, he (pia), me (te) pepa.

In English, this means:

This is the classroom. A computer is on the table. A boy is playing outside. There is one teacher. On the table, there are some crayons, a rubber, some scissors, a pen, a book, some glue, and some paper.

You could also do a cloze task without picture clues, which would be more challenging.

More ideas about how to make a cloze task more, or less, challenging, are also available.
