| | English Games and Activities for 3 year olds
Hello. I teach 3 year olds in Spain and I´m looking for some ideas for games and activities that will keep them interested. I only teach them for a half hour once a week. Their level of English is very basic as you can imagine (colors, counting to 5). I have a big class and whenever I´ve tried to do something where they move around the class it is a disaster (50 children in a small room). So far I´ve done songs (head, shoulders, knees and toes, the Wheels on the Bus, and Itsy Bitsy spider). I´ve also had them look at flashcards and tell me what color the flashcards are and then I put them around the room. I then take one student in front of the class and say "Go find blue." then the student will walk over to blue. After awhile though the children get antsy and I need some new material! While 30 minutes sounds like a very little amount of time I end up planning like 10 activities because their attention span is so short. Any really simple game ideas?
