Yes. Always. I usually teach 1 word slide for 3-4 mins starting with using the word as a noun, then use TPR and teaching aid. I also extend it by using a verb like saying, “The lion can run.”. Of course we act like running. And then use adjective “the lion is big.”

Sometimes I have them practice spelling the word, just to hear them say the letters and reinforce their understanding of phonetics.

If I’ve got a low-level student, asking about colors is always a safe bet. Also, a low-level student can usually answer “Do you like…?” questions. If they are a little more advanced I may ask “Do you have…?” and “What color is your…”.
I love your flashcards on sticks – especially the checkmark and “x”! A great idea for visually explaining “yes” and “no”.

Depending on the single word, I create short sentences with the student. I also talk about colour, shape, size, like, dislike etc. Again word-depending, I will introduce the idea of singular / plural. Another option is to introduce rhyming words. There have been times when the student has enjoyed writing the word or drawing a picture or making the sounds! Many options but it depends on the word and of course the individual student 😃

Thank you this is great advice – I think by extending and teaching the words in context , this helps the student to reemember.

Thank you for the useful reminders! I always try to extend the information by adding extra worksheets and activities. I try to induce the student to engage by using the pencil to answer the activities.

Thank you so much Roxanne! Teaching prepositions is a great idea.
I also teach games with the word – Do you play with the ball? Do you play basketball? Do you play football? 🙂

Great tips, Roxanne! I also sometimes get my students to draw things. For example, if the word is “cat” I can get them to draw a cat, or I draw a cat if they can’t use the pencil/tools, and then I can ask questions like, “Is the cat big or small?” or “What color is the cat?”
