Grade – schooler is a complex age in thinking and psychology. And we should remember that teaching language for young learners is very different from teaching adult learners, because this is age of learning – entertaining partnership. And as we see, a lesson plan for teaching children is very difficult.
The fisrtly, we should warm them up by warm up game from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. Then we add all the English of the lesson today by asking a question concerning the content of lesson and get them to answer.
The secondly, they prefer playing to studying, so we should use the interesting methods in the lesson. We organize a game with vocabulary to remember or they sing a song with structure and grammar in the lesson. We also use the videos or records, tell a short story to make them interested.
The finally, using powerpoint with cute images or actions and gestures to explan the meaning of the new words, then get the kids to repeat. Ask them to think of gestures for each vocab item. We finish the lesson on a high so that they are looking foward the next lesson.
It’s my opinion, and what do you think about it? Give me your point of view.
All the best!
