Practice vocabulary, descriptions and sentence formation.
This method starts with a theme or context (the “whole”), pulls out specific parts to analyze, then goes back to a text to practice the “part” in context. It can help students work on spelling, reading, and pronunciation skills.
It’s important to start class on time, even if only half of your students are there! Starting on time sets expectations about when students should arrive. Students who arrive early or on time can work independently, or in pairs, on review activities, and verify their answers on their own.
Red book
Explore and discover the “rules” of sentence formation.
Do you ever feel like a student is losing ground rather than progressing? This video will help you understand why mastery of a grammar rule doesn’t happen all at once and why it’s important to be patient with ourselves and our learners.
Relay race
This is a warm-up activity that can be adapted for all levels and used to review any situational dialogue or grammar point previously covered in class.
To practice speaking; review nouns and adjectives.
This activity helps students practice the past tense in yes/no questions and affirmative and negative statements.
One thing that amazes me about the teacher I work with is her ability to seamlessly incorporate grammar into a contextualized writing lesson that draws from the experience of the students. Today we worked on questions starting with “Do you know how to” and “Would you like to.”
