Default Re: any suggestions?

Hi there,

Funnily enough I had the same problem as you (see post "Teaching 3-6 year olds - help me!"
Read the advice I was given by the members of this forum - it was really useful.

After a few weeks of teaching this new class I have realised that I'm not going to get them speaking much at all. I've decided to focus on comprehension at this stage and will look to get them to reproduce some language further down the line.

I'm doing colours, animals, numbers, food, the weather.
They love listening to stories and looking at the pictures.
They adore singing. In fact, it's the only thing they reproduce,. Funnily enough If you're happy and you know it . . is their favourite. It's a nice one for teaching basic commands.

We also play Simon Says for the same reason.

Anyway, check out the posts on the forum I mentioned before.
Good luck!
