In the classroom, we use many teaching aids such as picture flashcards, word flashcards, computers, toys, masks, puppets, posters for vocabulary, big books, chalkboards, videos,… but the chalkboard and teacher as teaching aids are more popular. I can give some reasons why they play the  important role in teaching activities.

Teacher as a teaching aids:

Puppeteer

In the unit 1, lesson 1, teacher use the puppets to introduce four characters: Nam, Mai, Nga, Phong

Teacher models the dialogue

Nga: hello, I’m Nga

Phong: hello, I’m Phong

Then, have ss to repeat the sentences in the bubbles a few time and play the role

Actor

Teacher act characters in the scene Nam and Mai greet each other.

In  South Korea classroom, teacher mine like sound and action of animals.

Pig: I’m a pig ( put finger on nose, sound oaik, oaik)

Cat: I’m a cat (hands wash eyes, sound meow, meow, meow)

Speaker

Teacher present some games to improve writing, speaking skills for ss

In game, finding letters

Have ss to find out the names of the ss

Painter

Teacher can draw pictures ( cloud, tree, sun, book, bird, flower…) on the board or paper

Have ss to draw and paint these pictures

Singer

Using video, DVD

When teacher present the song, ss are funny, comfortable.

In South Korea class, she models the song herself

Rhymes: 12 123 yeah 1234 yeah yeah ( move hand up and use fingers to count)

Sing: how many pigs?

          123 123 pigs ( put 2 fingers on nose)

Musician

The same rhymes, teacher can create another songs

Kia con buom vang

Kia con buom vang

I’m happy, I’m happy

Or good bye teacher, good bye teacher

It’s easey for ss to memory the song

Storyteller

Teacher can tell a picture story connecting to role play, use masks, big books or posters of pictures.

Instructor

When ss have some troubles about lesson, teacher will give useful advices

 If in Viet Nam, the chalkboard is located in the centre of classroom, in others, is can be in the centre, and the side of class.

Use the chalkboard as the teaching aids

  1. Teacher write content of lesson  on the board
  2. Teacher draw some images to explain new words, for example

Cloud

     Sun

Tree

 

Cat

Dog

Cow

 

 

  1. Student do exercises on the board
  2. Teacher glue tree diagram, map, posters of pictures
