Great video!. Although the music is taking over his voice. I teach this lesson a lot and maybe I only got great low level students, but they were able to extend even further than toy names. I was able to ask in many occasions the question “who has a bike?” and I get ” Jenny!” Then I teach them to say the full sentence “Jenny has a bike” I found that parents like to see their children challenged, if I only go over easy stuff, the parent will think this is wasting their time and money. This is just my… Read more »

Nice point, Amel!
Parents expect their kids to describe things with complete sentences. We do need to adapt our teaching based on student’s level~~

Good tips. Most of the children already know how to count and colors though. I like to ask how many boys, how many girls and make sure they know the toys but of course, all depends on their knowledge

Sometimes the materials are not levelled accurately for students, so we as teachers have to do a great deal of adaptation,in order to elicit language from students. When materials are chosen they need to be around one or two levels above the student’s current level of knowledge,according to zones of proximal development research. The tips from Christopher are helpful.

Very helpful and I agree with a lot of the comments too, be careful not to be just going over what the child already knows.

Thank you Christopher for contributing to this video about appropriate vocabulary extensions. You clearly demonstrate the importance of building up the lesson from a simple foundation. This video is cleanly edited, with great in-class examples. I do agree the volume of instrumental music is a bit too much, as it covers your voice. To conclude, Christopher, you have fantastic focus and great vocal intonations.

Great video thanks. We need to be looking ahead to the next level so we can scaffold the students to reach it. Therefore I agree – we need to extend the content as much as possible.
