Thanks! I like the little check marks and X’s on the popsicle sticks. I use a somewhat similar technique by nodding my head for Yes and shaking it for No, to get them to say yes or no, but I hope those motions are universal. Maybe they’re not the same in China?

Having these sticks with a checkmark and an x are very helpful! (especially for low level students)

Why not just add these exercises rather than making the teacher create the curriculum for you?

I think it’s great that the teacher can choose what they want. You can adapt your teaching technique to the student you have in class.

If the students actually followed a lessons plan, you wouldn’t have to adapt anything. You would know exactly where they are on the way, what they should know and what you should review from the previous lessons. All this chaos is extremely counterproductive.

Amen… just passing the work on from the “material writers” to us. But when you actually make the effort to write good content for lesson plans, they reject it! Go figure.

I really enjoyed the two videos. They are so helpful! I loved it when you explained that a word is not just a concept but a real object that we can interact with. e.g. ball -> Throw a ball, catch a ball.

Good job! I enjoy your tips. Thank you so much. I like to use whiteboards to show them which letters are missing or when I want the students to draw a line, circle the pictures, or write the words. I will try to use the whiteboard when I want them to know ” spell ” means.

Love these tips, especially the one about the letters vs. words. I can definitely use a lot of these tips in the LVP 25 demo sessions I do.

Really great suggestions! Thank you so much for sharing. I wish I could have played the video at a faster speed. She has a great pace for teaching English but I would have enjoyed it more at about x2!! 🙂

Thanks Martha! Try them out and see how it goes! There is a training video (let’s chant activity) in the portal that shows me teaching. Also, there is another training video coming up with some “real session” clips. You can also head over to the training portal and watch the real session videos from Michelle and Sophia . They also use similar techniques.

I believe that a lesson with one word slides should not exist. It is ridiculous to ask every single teacher to come up with questions and answers and write all of them on the white board when you could have a normal lesson with all the writing already there.
