Hey everyone, I've just started the teaching young learners assignment and I'm having trouble of thinking of a game to extend on a child's vocabulary skills. They has specifically asked for sentence based answers not one word answers. I would have gone with picture cards and asked the child/children to explain what it is they see e.g a picture of a dog, child answers dog.... it's a short answer. I could then say what else can you see from the picture, describe the dog? Anyway, you get where I'm stuck any suggestions would be helpful. I'm unsure exactly what age group "young" defines because developmentally there is a big difference between a 5 year old and a 7 year old's learning capabilities.

hi! i have just got to the assesment part of the teaching young learners section. would some one please be able to guide me on the right track. have passed the course quite well, but am running out of time with the due date and am a bit stuck!

I think the thing to remember are that the students probably will not understand english very well, or even at all. The first thing you are trying to do is help build up their vocabulary. The main points that I think you should consider are pictures and actions that the students could link to the words are easier to understand than trying to explain a meaning (especially as they would be unlikely to understand anyway). After this repetition and reviewing materials from previous lessons frequently is important, as you can't expect the students to learn something once and remember it perfectly.
Hope this helps you a bit.

This is the lesson plan I'm up to: (Can I get some help please???) Click here to read a lesson plan for a class of young learners and imagine you are giving the next lesson to the same class. Your aim is to teach the following set of new double letter sounds: ai as in sail Write a lesson plan according to the same model. The time and level are the same and your aims will be to teach a new set of double letter sounds. Please use as much as you can from the different parts of this module and include a varied range of activities. Thanks, Renee

I'm also stuck some parts of question 5. Not sure how we have to review last lesson structures? I'm fine with teaching the new double letter sounds but stuck on that...
Any help would be appreciated...

Hey guys! Just click on the sample lesson plan provided in the question no. 5 and use that as a guide in making your own version of lesson plan and start from there. Your TL should include the new vocab (ay, ai, ir, oa). Remember to introduce those double letter sounds with examples (ai-sail, ay-tray, etc.) Activities could include games like scrabbles, variations of bingo, slam etc.
just brows the net and search for SLAM game. there are lots of examples provided.
Wish you guys all the best!

Hey guys. I've just completed the online 140 hrs combined course but I've been given several different certificates for each section, that's really impractical. Where can I access one certificate that indicates that I've completed the course in its entirety? Thanks!
