English for children of preschool age, preschoolers

I noticed an interesting trend in my tutoring: in the four years that I have been studying with students, their age is gradually decreasing. I started with a student in grade 11 and a girl of 21, then I had students in grades 8-9, and a couple of years ago I started working with elementary school students. I find it more interesting with teenagers, but once the demand has changed, I have to study the method of teaching English in elementary school.

Then one day I heard that my classmate Katya was teaching English to preschoolers at a development center. I asked for her to see how the lesson is going. After all, one thing – a book, and quite another – a real experience.

Travel to England

The lesson I attended was the first acquaintance lesson for children of five years of age. They were a bit shy, despite the presence of moms in the hall. And now Katyusha offered the kids to make a trip to England – a country where you can speak only English.

How can we get to England? – The question was addressed to all children. By plane! – replied the girl with two red pigtails. Well done, Martha! – followed immediately by Katerina’s praise. – And now let’s show how we fly by plane. Katya showed how the plane accelerated, she did not forget about the characteristic sounds of Broome Brrrum. For a minute the children ran in circles, wringing their hands and speaking Brrrum too. At this time, music was playing.

Hi, or greeting in English

Then the music turned off. Here we are in England! And here is the first resident of England – Cat (toy kitten). Katya wore a toy – tiger cub on her hand. And here she shows children how to greet English. But the kitten is welcomed not on its own behalf, but on behalf of the tiger. Hi, – the tiger cub says and rolls a small ball to the English kitten. Hi, – meets the kitten and returns the ball.

Then the kids take turns in the game (there were seven of them in the class). Their task is to catch the ball, repeat the greeting correctly, and bring the ball back. It sounds simple, but for some children who have not previously encountered English, it was not an easy task. The most shy boy, Kiryusha, Katya helped, in a whisper prompting.

Cat, Dog and Company

The little dog entered the game, a Dog. The kids greeted her again, and then the task was to get to know the dog and the cat. What is your name? – a simple question for us, but for children everything is more complicated. Katya gently corrected the mistakes.

Goodbye!

Half an hour lesson flew rapidly for me. The children counted to three, they danced to an English song. And now Katya says: And now we are returning home to Kiev. Just do not forget to say goodbye to your new friends. The British say goodbye at parting !. Again the same music sounds, and here our airplanes landed in their hometown.

My findings

I really liked Katin’s lesson. Children were interested, fun and not at all scary with a charming smiling teacher. And I can also say, as a teacher, that many people are in error, that knowing two or three words, they will easily conduct a lesson with preschoolers.

No and no again. For preschool children to work, execute commands, speak English, they should be interested in every minute of the lesson! Katya coped with the task perfectly well!

Do you take your kids to English classes? Or maybe teach them at home?
