Environment Have to create a comfortable environment for the children to be more willing to learn English Keep the lessons interactive and fun
Activities Lead the children in singing songs with English Some songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b14OeT1gNFo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOpFVsiKdSI Read more to the children and have the children read back to the whole class
Ideas for Keeping the Classroom Comfortable Lesson Plan Give several short sentences describing nature to the children (“The grass is green,” “The tree is tall,” “Animals are everywhere,” “And I am in the middle of it all”) Lead the children to sing the descriptions several times through Lead the children on a march while singing the song Ask the children to draw on the blackboard some of the images they think of as they sing the song
Lessons for Helping Children to Respond to Questions Lesson Plan Ask the children one question Ask the children to each write down their own response on their paper Ask the children to tape their responses on the board Have the whole class read the responses out loud to each other to show the different possible ways of responding to one question Lead the children singing the responses Ask the children to draw pictures all around the board to help better express their answers
Lessons for Encouraging Children to Speak in Front of Crowds Give a little show and tell project and ask the children to bring something from their home. Have the children prepare a little presentation by asking them to write down what they would like to describe about what they bring
Challenging Children’s Writing Give the children the task of writing down their opinion about something and providing some explanation. For example after reading a story, ask the children to respond by writing “I like it,” “I don’t like it,” or another statement. Then show the children that they can write explanations such as “The story is boring,” or “The boy was funny.”
Some More Songs Ask the children to follow along and listen closely to the songs Ask the children to write down their opinions on the songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bZcfQSvEYY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsbFIYSK26E http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=327R1NH5jYg
