teaching some differnt kids on monday and not sure what todo

Post by francesen » Fri Sep 15, 2006 4:24 am


i am a new teacher in china. i've taught grade eight for a week, and some grade nine. also teaching a year 7 group from next week. this is what i was expecting.

however, i have been told i'm going to a different school on monday, and teaching kids in grade three and four. i think there are about 40-60 kids in each class. i don't know much about their level except this information i was given:

"grade 3 - whose bike is this? learn possessive pronoun. yours mine hers ours his theirs
. design some activities for the kids"

grade four - what are they doing? they have learnt what's she doing, what's he doing, what are you doing?"

i'm a bit stuck because they're much younger kids and i also don't know exactly how to make a whole lesson out of 'what are they doing?'. i also dont; know if i am expected to teach the whose bike - its his hers etc or expand on it...

if anyone has any ideas this would be good. i guess i'll play games, find out their level first, and then try and do something on these topics, but any help would be really appreciated.

You can just click on the name and see all of their past postings. I would also check out EFLforlittleones, Senorita Daniels and EH. Look for names that come up often and also check out Dave's cookbook on the main page.
