Listen and do activities Listen for information Listen and color Teaching Technique for Listening It is quite clear that listening is the skill that children acquire first, especially if they have not yet learnt to read. 4. The most obvious listen and do activity which we can and should make use from the moment we start the English lessons is giving genuine instruction. Example: - Sit down, please - Give this pen to Silvy, please - Please, come to the white board Listen and do activities 5. What you need and what to do? Prepare some imperative sentences related to the topic of the lesson Write them down on a piece of paper Divide the students into some groups Instruction: Ask one of the student of the group to take a piece of paper randomly The teacher read aloud the sentences inside the paper The students perform the activity based on the instruction given in a turn 6. The advantages with this type of activity is that you know at once if the children have understood. You can check classroom vocabulary, movement words, counting, spelling. They will still be able to do the activity by watching the others. 7. Listen for information It is really the umbrella heading which covers a very wide range of listening activities. We are taking it to mean listening for detail, specific information. These can often be used to check what the children know, and also can give them new information 8. example: Children need to listen carefully what teacher said, then the are required to match the information to the suitable picture. Has anyone see this boy? He has dark hair and big ears. He is wearing rubber boots and carrying a football. He has a stripped jersey and short trousers. Put a cross by the right correct! 9. Listen and color Children love coloring picture and we can easily make this activity into a listening activity. 10. The following is the example of listen and color with the combination between color and number. 11. Teaching technique for speaking 1 2 Pair Work Group Work Speaking is perhaps the most demanding skill for the teacher to teach. In their own language children are able to express emotions, communicate intentions and reaction, explore the language and make fun of it 12. Pair Work Students A and B work in pairs to learn famous building and direction. 1. A: Is there a museum? B: Yes, there is 2. A: Where is the museum? B: It is on Tottenham- Road 13. Group Work Picture is suitable media for children to learn. The students work in group to describe what picture is The group describe the picture accordingly The rest of the groups decide the order picture 14. Teaching Technique for Reading Just as listening is the main source of language when children start to learn a language, print is the second main source. The printed word becomes the main source of expanding and strengthening the language Reading aloud Silent Reading 15. Reading aloud Reading aloud can be very useful technique: Reading aloud to the teacher should be done individually or in small groups. The reader then has the teachers full attention. The teacher can use it as a means of training and checking rhythm and pronunciation. 16. Thats bird. Its orange. Thats a fly. Its green. Thats a frog. Its green too. Thats zebra. Its black and white. I am Teddy and I am light brown. Hes Teddy and we love him. Hes great. I am Teddy and I am great 17.
