Pre-writing:

Let's review some Vocabulary on the house

Read the following text describing a room:

 

I have got my own room. In my room there is a bed, a table, a chair, a wardrobe and a television.  There is a window above the table. The television is opposite my bed so I can watch it when I am in bed.

The wardrobe is on the left and my bed is on the right. There is a computer on the table and books, pens and cds are near the computer. There is a magazine and a camera on the bed.

When you describe a place you commonly used the verb there is/there are, descriptive adjectives and place prepositions like at, on, under, below, above, near, opposite, on the right, on the left.
