Hello Everyone,

I am so happy I found this discussion board because I need some help! I have volunteered to teach an English class to a group of 3-5 year olds (from 1-5 kids depending on who is there for the lesson). They are Japanese and do not know any English. It will be once a week for 45 min. I have taught English in Japan but not with young children. I have experiece with kindergarteners but not teaching ESL. Where do I begin in developing a lesson (e.g What should be included in the lesson?)
Thank you very much for any replies.

P

Use flashcards!
It's the oldest trick in the book but it's effective.

There are free mp3s of preschool/kindergarten songs, finger plays and rhymes on http://www.pamseslclassroom.com/Free_ESL_Music.html

There are also the lyrics and instructions for lots of early years appropriate songs and singing games on the lyrics page.

Great downloadable song packages are available that include a song mp3 with the lesson plan for the song, flashcards for the vocabulary, lyrics sheets with the instructions for the actions and worksheets. Instant lessons.

Good luck
