Where is the Bee?

Can children tell you where something is?

Prepositions of place are one of an important part of the English language and will enable students to locate where something is and create sentences about its location. This is also a good opportunity to review vocabulary they’ve learned before such as  book, chair, sofa, vase and table. The basic prepositions are incredibly fun to demonstrate in a classroom and students can often guess their meanings. ON, IN, UNDER,BY are what we talked about this week. Children understood the focus prepositions through demonstrations and hand gestures. TPR circle time is one of the main objective especially in teaching a foreign language to children, so action songs,  dance, chants, and introductions of new words are what we did  for this lesson. I was happy how the children response through answering questions and placing things (flash cards) on,in,under,by the table. So, can children tell where something is? Yes, they can!

 

Story Time!

To wrap up the week, We had a story time “ Are You My Mother” by: P.D. Eastman. Loaded with familiar animals and transportations were mentioned and understood in this reading activity. I love looking at the children eager to see  and listen on what’s in the next page. It was fun!

 

Fish and Shark!

Teaching little ones are really exciting. They may not be able to answer you in a sentence yet, but their smiles, hand gestures, body movements are really amusing. We did counting (1,2,3,4,5), colors (red, yellow, orange, green) vocabulary (fish, shark) for this lesson. (G.H can count 1-5 in his local language. He has some familiar children’s songs and has quite understanding about colors, too as they are already expose to primary colors. I prepared songs, mime/ finger play, and fish art (attaching eyes, fins and tail) lesson for them this week. Toddlers are very responsive during the allotted circle time. They keep on touching things on the mat and mimicking hymn through repeated songs for them to recognize the tune.
