This work was conducted in Kabras Division of Kakamega District. The Division has four educational zones. These are: the East Zone with ninenteen (19) primary schools; the South Zone with fourteen (14) schools; the West Zone with twenty three (23) schools and the Central Zone with twenty six (26) schools. This brings to a total of eighty two (82) primary schools. Eight school were randomly chosen, two from each zone. A questionnaire was administered to all the teachers of English ln upper classes ln the eight schools and a total of 42 questionnaires responded to were collected. The researcher sought to find out if teachers did the necessary preparations for instructional purposes. Such preparations included lesson planning, preparation of schemes of work, methods used by teachers to deliver prepared materials and how they assess the pupils and their (teachers') own effectiveness. It also sought to find out if the teachers faced any problem and how such problems would be solved. It was found out that the teachers did prepare the lesson plans, and their schemes. But they are faced with a number of problems such as being overloaded with work, lack of text books, and having too many pupils in a class who did not have adequate sitting facilities.
