  • Use TPR: Show me your head/shoulders…etc., or frases followed by demonstration: I wash my hair/face/teeth…I brush my hair.
  • Ask them to draw certain body parts that are easy to draw, use flashcards or draw on the board.
  • Teach them to sing the popular English song ”Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.” Make them sit down and point to these body parts while singing.

Numbers

NUMBERS

1 to 10

1 to 10

1 to 20

 counting song

 

Numbers 1 – 20. First teach your early language learners to say the numbers up to 10, and once they’ve acquired them in the foreign language, teach them numbers from 10 to 20.

Use flashcards, write down the numbers on the board or find games with numbers on the Internet. If you use the cards with numbers turn them face down, ask the children to pull out the cards and then to guess the number on the card.

You can combine the numbers and colours by drawing on small pieces of paper or a big piece of paper (where you put all the numbers); perform an activity in which you call the children to come and colour the number by saying, for example: ‘‘One is yellow. Two is red. Three is blue…etc.”

 

Colours

COLOURS

balloons

The sky

Teach your early language learners 11 different colours: yellow, red, blue, green, orange, pink, black, white, grey, pink, purple.To teach colours you can use flashcards or simply different objects with different colours.

  • Take coloured pencils and say the names of the colours. Then ask the children to repeat after you. (Remember there is lot of repetition in teaching English to small children).
  • Take out the pencils and ask the children to speak out the names of colours, or take any other object, or colour flashcards

GREETINGS

Greetings

How are you?

What´s your name?

Hello! Good morning! Good afternoon! Good evening! Good night! Goodbye!

  • You can practise saying hello and goodbye by knocking on wood and saying:”Hello! Is there anybody home?” and by waving your hand on saying”Goodbye!”
  • Play the “day and night” game (you can use this game to teaching them opposite words like morning/evening, summer/winter, big/small etc). Always explain why you are playing the game and introduce game rules. For example: “we sit down when we say evening because we are tired after a long day and we stand up when we say morning because then we get up from bed ready to live the day”, etc.

Be careful that your intonation is musical because the words are then easier to remember!
